If you’re on a sports blog, I have to assume that the answer to the question posed in the title is a resounding YES.
As a fan of both the 49ers and Indiana Hoosiers myself (apparently I really like the Harbaugh-Crean family), each of which appear to have good chances of reaching their respective title games, such a sports dream prize pack is extra appealing to me this year. So...
