The 2012 NCAA Tournament is a part of our livelihood for the next month. As expected, office bracket pools have started to pop up everywhere you look. For these, though, you always have to pay up front to enter, and the winner always ends up being that 'risk-taking', chalk-loving guy from accounting, or the kooky secretary with dozens of troll dolls surrounding her desk. There has to be a better way!
There is. Thanks to Yahoo!'s Tourney Pick'Em, you now have a chance to let your brilliant tournament choices pay off handsomely, without ever having to fork over a dime. Here's how to get involved:

4. Fill out your bracket like a man. This entails choosing schools based on a combination of soothing team colors, friendly mascots, and ideal travel destinations.
