We are counting down to the madness. One of the most exciting days in sports and the least productive work days on the calendar, the opening round of the NCAA Men's Basketball Championships, is less than 24 hours away.

If you haven't filled out your bracket yet, Jason King who covers college basketball and football for Yahoo! Sports just might be able to help you out.

Be sure to join the LAist group, which can also be found on Yahoo! Sports. In addition to the prize to be determined that we're giving away, Y! Sports is giving away $1 million to anyone who can put together a perfect bracket and $10,000 to the best overall bracket.
