The Bacon Explosion Bracket Challenge Strikes Back

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow us on Facebook. Thanks for visiting!

Bacon Explosion Bracket

It’s March Madness time, ya’ll, and you know what that means: The Intentional Foul Bacon Explosion Bracket Challenge (or IFBEBC for short) is back for its second go-around. The rules are simple: Join our Bacon Explosion Bracket Challenge (Yahoo), pick your winners, sweat out the tournament, and if you’re picks are worthy, you might find yourself as the new owner of a Bacon Explosion. In case you can’t smell what the guys at Burnt Finger BBQ are cooking, allow this description to entice your imagination and your appetite:

2 pounds thick cut bacon
2 pounds Italian sausage
1 jar of BBQ sauce
1 jar of BBQ rub

So yeah, it’s a worthwhile Bracket Challenge, especially if you are one of the millions of people on the bacon bandwagon. Of course, when you’re fighting for something like the Bacon Explosion, that’s not a bad bandwagon to be apart of.

Anyhow, the information for our Tournament Pick’em is as follows:

Bacon Explosion Challenge (group ID# 71753)

PW: letmein

Simply go here, enter the group ID (71753) and enter the password (letmein). Oh, and there’s only one bracket per entry, so get it right.

Best of luck to all the entrants, may the best bracket win. Oh, and one more thing, the winner will need to provide us with a mailing address in order to collect the Bacon Explosion prize.

One last thing: Even though I live in Kansas City, I’m the only one who can pick Kentucky to win it all. ;)

Your Bacon Explosion Winner

All of the bracket challenge scores have been tallied and the winners have been announced … well, except for here. The winner of the 2009 Bacon Explosion Bracket Challenge is, none other than ASU Jon from SportsRubbish.com. Jon’s winning bracket scored him 1540 points and his bracket was in the were 99.3 percentile. Jon’s bracket even had Michigan State and North Carolina playing in the final game, with North Carolina winning. Nicely done, Jon, and congratulations on your Bacon Explosion victory. It was a hard-fought, well-deserved victory that saw the competition cower in fear when faced with Jon’s devastatingly correct bracket.

Chris here with some news: IF will be doing our second-annual March Madness live blog, starting tomorrow. I’ll be watching and commenting on all of the games going one, with the help of a couple of laptops and CBS’ MMOD service. Hopefully, I won’t be seeing too many of those nag screens. Also, if you haven’t done so yet, be sure to join the IF Bacon Explosion Bracket Challenge over at ESPN.

As the name implies, the winner of this particular group gets one of these:

If you are looking for another kind of March Madness challenge, check out what InGameNow’s got going on with their little twist. Instead of teams, you pick players. Say you want Blake Griffin. Are you confident enough to think Oklahoma will be in the tournament long enough for you to get the scoring benefit of his basketball abilities? You had better hope so because DVD prizes are at stake.

Don’t forget — live blog tomorrow and through the weekend and the Bacon Explosion bracket challenge. Our little contribution to the world of March Madness. Good luck and may all your picks come true.

IF Bacon Explosion Bracket Challenge

Bacon Bracket

How good does bacon go with basketball? Since bacon goes well with everything, the answer, is, of course, “just fantastic.” Seeing how it’s bracket challenge time, we thought it would be prudent for us to join in the fun. Join the IF Bacon Explosion Bracket Challenge over at ESPN. I know, I know–yet another bracket you have to fill out. But wait. There’s incentive: the winner receives an already-prepared Bacon Explosion from the guys at BBQ Addicts.

That’s right. The winner gets all the pork they can handle, done up so eloquently in a roll of pure bacon-y, pork goodness. If you feel like testing that Final Four of Arizona, Utah State, American and Akron for a shot at all the bacon you can handle, step right up and submit your entry. The winning bracket will have a Bacon Explosion mailed to them at an address of their choosing, and we’ll take care of the rest. If you think gift cards, iPods and cash rewards are overrated and want to put your bracket-picking skills to a challenge with a true prize, make sure you join the IF Bacon Explosion Challenge.

You want the opportunity to win a lot of bacon, right? You like March Madness, right? Of course you do. Unlike the Dow, bacon’s only going to get bigger in 2009, so don’t miss your chance to win what has to be considered the standard bearer of bacon recipes.
