    He must have started looking at some of our Super Bowl Squares hauls. They have been pretty serious.

    I haven't done a BIF yet, but have a few trades and LIFs under my belt, if you'll have me. Have to start somewhere and this sounds like a lot of fun! I'll be closely watching March Madness and hopefully cheering KU to the championship!

    I had added him on the list to hold his spot while we discussed his provisional status. I sent him alewatcher's blog on trading tips and offered to help him since he has never traded before. Part of his response: "I will be honest with you. In over my head...I dont think I am ready for the whole trading scene." MAD PROPS to this guy for doing the self-assessment and being level headed, not just blindly diving in to get in on the hauls he's seen in this forum.

    DJ - When/if you're ready, I'll gladly be your first trade. I can't promise it won't hurt but I'll do my best to be gentle.

    I would like in. Not big trader, but can provide refrences if needed. Most of the BA's here around Pittsburgh will vouche. Ive been a gang bang BIF participant since the beginning, and a couple of guys that are already in this might vouche for me too. Let me know.

    I would love in on this. I work in England, but I have an APO address and a stateside address if absolutely necessary. There is one BA who could vouch for me and I'm currently working on establishing a trade history. If more is needed, will work with the OP. If not, I also understand.

    If there ends up being a spot left, I'd like to be in. I'm no stranger to trading, but this would be my first BIF.

    I think we should give the teams out in the order we entered... So, let say if you were the 4th person in.. you get the 4th best team. Sound fair? ;)

    As much as I love my Wolverines, I feel like they have "upset victim" written all over them. That being said is still be thrilled to end up with them.

    I really like this idea. I think it would be fun to know which slot we had before Selection Sunday so we can just follow along and find out what team will be our adopted favorite for March Madness. It also seems like it would be easier on whoever is running the BIF, but since that's not me I guess I don't really care how the draw is run.

    I agree with BeerandBoards suggestion. Draw them to the slots. Will make watching the selection show a blast!
