Redskins fans, let the games begin!
In the spirit of the March Madness Basketball Tournament, we have created a one-stop shop for YOU to participate with us and join the madness by competing against your favorite Redskins players.
Over the course of the next three-plus weeks you can battle the pros for chances to win jerseys autographed by QB Robert Griffin III and more. Yes, plural chances, multiple opportunities to grab the spotlight, take the burgundy and gold cake, and claim bragging rights as our inaugural winner…until we do it again next year!
We sat around, brainstormed, and conceptualized a concoction called Redskins Bracket Madness that will come to life tonight and will conclude in correspondence with the culmination of the basketball tournament on Monday night April 8th.
By combining March Madness and Redskins football, we’re commanding your attention with one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year and what you live, love, and breath, the Redskins. Is there anything better than that?
We think not! Just don’t tell your boss that you’ll be spending the next however many days glued to www.redskins.com/brackets.
Here’s how you can get involved:
You’ll be able to start submitting your tourney picks to the Washington Redskins bracket (created on ESPN) tonight following the Selection Show on CBS. Deadline to enter is Thursday, March 21st by 12:00pm EST.
Vote for the Top 32 Redskins Draft Classes in our bracket style vote on Facebook. Do you consider the 2012 draft (#2 seed) one of the best Redskins draft classes of all-time? We have seeded each draft class since 1980 and now the rest is up to you to determine which draft you think was the best. Voting begins tonight at 8:00pm EST.
That’s not all. Stick with us because we’ll be unveiling more, including the Redskins players who have filled out their brackets, before the start of the tournament this Thursday, March 21st; sorry, we can’t give it all away just yet!
And be sure to use #RedskinsBracket on Twitter to join the conversation! Watch the live chat stream straight to your desktop at home or at work.
You can find all of the information you need to know at www.redskins.com/brackets. So high-five your friends, join us for the ride and begin entering your brackets because you don’t want to miss out on the madness! Only rule: No Cowboys fans allowed.
Hail to the Redskins!
