The internet has kinda ruined tourney pools

It's not the same anymore.  I used to only enter one pool each year.  I would fill out two copies of my bracket, one to turn in, and one to fold up and carry around in my pocket.  It's not as meaningful when you don't actually write down your picks by hand.  You can click your way to a completed bracket in 30 seconds on yahoo or espn without having to put any thought into it.  It's much less gratifying when you don't get to circle your winners, and you don't care as much when you don't have to cross out your losers.  I'm in eight different online pools this year.  I don't remember who I picked where.  It's not as fun as it used to be.
