You can pick your friends, you can pick your bowl games. But don't pick your friends' bowl games! How many billions of dollars in the Microsoft and Fox marketing budgets—and this is the best they can come up with?

I'm having a heckuva time signing up for an account. It's telling me I can't sign in:

Sign in to FOXSports.com on MSN using Windows Live ID: Windows Live ID is unavailable from this site for one of the following reasons: * This site may be experiencing a problem. * The site may not be a member of Windows Live ID.
Uh, what?

Same here.

I can't get this damn thing to work, either. Friggin' Fox.

Success!

Cool, thanks for the help TBH.

I'm getting the same error as DrJohn. I went over to msn.com, signed in over there, found success, came back to our pick 'em page, but I got the same login error.

I am not a computer whiz, so can anyone help out on this? I really do want to dominate all of you! TBH, how did you figure it out?

I can't get it to work. I switched from FOX's fantasy (american) football last year because their MSN relation make it difficult to get things to work in my Mac environment. If someone decides to start a Yahoo! (or other) league, please announce it. Good luck, folks!

I'm having hell too. I'll try from home tonight.

Success as well! Somehow, I only ended up picking five upsets. I think I'm well on my way to the Costanza for this one.

posted by hawkguy at 09:30 AM on December 07

I fortunately had no problems. Very cool.

I kept getting the same error message. I went to the College Pick 'em front page, created an entry, then joined the group. That worked for me.

bperk's method worked for me as well.

Um, actually, I made that up. Sorry. Ha, did you really? Upon review, it does have an air of "oh, I need to enter a pool slogan, what do I write?" But I was completely convinced that it was a part of the site! That's great.

Well im in. Anyone care to try and match my perfect Costanza from the CFL playoffs? My picks cant get any worse, or whoa be to the teams I just picked.

I'm in and I'm riding with the SEC!

"oh, I need to enter a pool slogan, what do I write?" That is exactly what I was thinking at the time! You are really freaking me out with your psychic vibe, man... But seriously, I'm glad you guys could make it in. I love this stuff!

We're a bunch of pool junkies. If you build it, they will come, indeed. Thanks for setting this up.

posted by NoMich at 08:20 AM on December 08

Awesome! I live for this stuff. Come to think of it, maybe I need a life...

I'm totally setting up a pool which allows you to pick which SpoFites will enter the most pools.

That'd be awesome DrJohn. Are you going to include fantasy teams or would that be a separate pool? How about a fantasy SpoFi league where you would draft other SpoFier's and win points based on how well they do in the various pools/fantasy sports/pick 'ems?

Who is our most decorated SpoFite so far?

posted by bperk at 12:23 PM on December 08

Commissioner, I left a couple of messages in the pool home message board, but in case you didn't get them, I have two different entries under my name. For some reason, it would not let me select and edit my original entry, Hawkguy1. I re-entered as terrell's loogies, so please delete Hawkguy! when possible.

posted by hawkguy at 09:15 PM on December 18

It's deleted, hawkguy. Good luck with T.O.'s liquid excitement!
