With basketball fans anxiously anticipating the arrival of the NCAA playoff brackets, we want to give our readers some early practice. So we've come up with our own field -- quintessential St. Louis people, place, food and (as they would say on "Jeopardy") potpourri.
We have 64 qualifiers in the starting field, and we will match them up until we come down to the Final Four, and then the championship.
Put on your Cardinal caps and start filling out your brackets.
Are there prizes?
Yes! For each of the first five rounds, five random winners will be selected from registered players to receive two free passes to Wehrenberg Theatres. For the final round, five winners will be chosen to receive two free tickets to Keith Urban. Movie ticket winners also are eligible for the Keith Urban tickets.
What is the schedule?
First round ends 3/16 Noon
Second round ends 3/21 Noon
Third round ends 3/23 Noon
Fourth round ends 3/28 Noon
Fifth round ends 3/30 Noon
Finals end 4/1 Noon
