The PZZA Office Pool

Put in your wagers!

What good are brackets if you can't bet on them, right? Think a deep dish will be crowned champ? Could the thin-crust spot around the corner go the distance? Will it be a St. Pete pie or one from North Tampa? You make the call.

It's all about pizza prediction — you need to pick a winner in every game of every round though the championships, and you need to submit your entry by 9 a.m. on Wednesday, March 21. You'll be up against thousands of other PZZA fans, so choose wisely, and choose often.

There are several ways to wager. For those of you familiar with the interweb, you can submit as many ballots as you'd like by clicking here. If you're more of a snail-mail type, fill out the bracket in this week's paper and send it to the tabulating squad at CL HQ (address below) — or just come by our office and drop it off.

Online or on paper, be sure to fill out the full bracket, complete with your predictions for every game in every round. Scoring will be weighted — so if you don't do well in the first round, don't fret. As long as your champion is still alive, so are you.

The reader with the top score will receive a $100 gift certificate to the winning pizza joint, and our undying respect. We know which one is worth more; enjoy the pizza.

Deadline: Wed., March 21 at 9 a.m.
