Time is Running Out for a Chance to Work with a Sports Legend, March Madness Style

Time is running out for the Bonobos “Pro-Am Bracket Challenge.” This isn’t your everyday bracket contest. The clothing store, Bonobos, is giving fans the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to team up with a sports legend to create their bracket and win prizes. Wednesday will be the last full day  to sign up and fill out your bracket. You will be able to make all the changes you want, but just know that they will lock in place Thursday at noon when the games begin.

How it works:

1. Register your bracket from March 16 (after the Selection Sunday show), to before March 20th at 12 p.m. at Bonobos by clicking here. As always, it is free to sign up and play.

2. Without any knowledge of the Pros’ bracket picks, select one sports legend to be your partner. Choose wisely, once you have picked one, there’s no going back to change it.

Sports legends include: Baseball Hall of Famer Rollie Fingers, six-time hot dog eating champion Takeru Kobayashi, Soccer Hall of Famer Marceo Balboa, former Guinness World-Records holder for longest paper airplane throw Stephen Kreiger, and 800 pound sumo wrestler Emanuel Yarbrough.

3. Fill out your bracket and submit it before the deadline.

4. Like all bracket challenges, the person with the highest score wins it all. However, remember that your score will be a combination of the performance from your picks and your partner’s bracket.

5. Win.

Grand Prizes:
1st Place- Two tickets for the 2015 NCAA Tournament Final Four, $1,000 in Bonobos store credit, and a signed bracket from the sports legends
2nd Place- $500 in Bonobos store credit
3rd Place- $250 in Bonobos store credit
…and other additional prizes
