Before we get started, many of you have asked about a Hot Clicks NCAA tournament pool. Yes, there will be one (with prizes!), but I'm waiting until tomorrow to announce it because I don't want to include the play-in games that take place tonight and tomorrow night. That means you will have from late Wednesday night until Thursday late morning to fill out your bracket, so be prepared. Now onto the show...
When it comes to NCAA tournament gimmicks, Hooters is doing it right. Pizza Hut and Harry Caray's restaurant are not. Hooters has declared Thursday and Friday "National Play Hooky Days." If you're so inclined to call in sick and watch the games at Hooters, they'll provide you with a doctor's note AND a free appetizer coupon. Pizza Hut wants you to think they're offering something special, but they're not. They've announced they'll give out pizza in 48 states (sorry, Alaska and Hawaii) if a No. 16 seed beats a No. 1 seed. The only problem with that is a No. 16 has never beaten a No. 1. However, there's a better chance of that happening than anyone in the world picking every single tournament game correctly. But that's what Harry Caray's restaurant wants you to do in order to win free steak for life.
