    Hey guys!

    It's almost that time of the year again. One of my favorite sports time out of the entire year, with the NCAA tourney set to get underway tomorrow afternoon. :)

    So, I'm not sure how many of you like participating in filling out brackets every March Madness, but I've personally been doing them almost every year for the men's NCAA basketball tournament since like the late 90s lol.

    Anyway, I'm not sure how many of you are a member on Discord's r/Investing Reddit chat community? I'm a pretty regular on their myself. :p

    I went ahead and setup a group bracket tournament for their community on there, so far about 5 have joined thus far, but I was looking to see if any of you guys were interested to join up the group by filling out a bracket on there as well? Thought I'd just share the invite link for their group in here as well instead of creating an entirely new group bracket.

    Here's the official group bracket invite if any of you are interested to join it:
    https://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/t1/group/69390/invitation?key=ed449064aed7a645

    Here is the link to the group main page:
    https://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/t1/group/69390

    This the link to the standings page (which I think will be visible to all by tomorrow afternoon):
    https://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/t1/group/69390/standings

    If there is any issues with any of those links, be sure to lmk pronto!

    This group bracket is set to private and only members from the r/Investing subreddit Discord community can see and join it, with the following password: cautiouscoin2022

    Anyway, I believe participants will have until tomorrow around noon time eastern to fill out their brackets. So, the earlier the better if you can so you don't forget. :p

    Let me know once you guys have joined up so I know for sure y'all's are on there.

    Should be a lot of fun to keep track of everyone's picks throughout the duration of this tourney to see who can score the most correct picks when all is said and done. :D

    I joined and didn't see the password before clicking your join link, it didn't even make me fill it in. Looks like I'm in.

    Nice! Good to see you in this! :D Oh and thx for that heads up there! Hmm, could swear that I did set a group password for joining that before launching it. Weird stuff. But glad to see that you're in! Will be a lot of fun to track all of our picks during this tournament. :D

    How about those upsets yesterday! Saint Peter's Peacocks with the biggest win in their history for sure. Today will be fun trying to keep up with all the games. And go Cougs!

    Calling all my sports fans out there:
    https://stockaholics.net/threads/i-need-help-with-a-project.12719/#post-165057

    I am doing surprisingly well in my brackets, well a few of them haha

    I am a Michigan and Villanova fan so I have benefited from picking them to advance, as well as having Notre Dame this far. Also had Richmond upsetting Iowa. I know a lot of people had Iowa going deep. Also benefited from UNC beating Baylor. I never did like Baylor. Had Houston this far also.

    If I continue having success this afternoon/evening, ill figure out how to post my bracket. I am ranked 1.2Mil overall right now lol
