All right folks, get your thinking caps on.
Copy and paste our link and send it to your friends so they can
be a part of the action, http://blog.tuffstuff.com/7thinning/. Remember to provide a
tie-breaker on the week’s last game.
Contestants are asked to predict the total score from the last
game on the list and the closest to the actual score will be deemed the
I’ll also require contestants to post their e-mail
address with their picks so I can track down the winners easier.
For those unfamiliar with the Beat the Blogger contest, the idea is
simple. The Blogger posts 10 matchups each week and then selects his
choices for the winners of those matchups. Contestants enter the Beat
the Blogger contest by clicking on the “Comment” section below the post
with the matchups and then select their own 10 winners.
If you Beat The
Blogger’s total and post the high score for the week, you win. The
regular weekly prize is an authentic signed 8-by-10 color photo of stars
such as LaDainian Tomlinson, Drew Brees, Marshall Faulk, Santonio
Holmes, Gale Sayers, Catfish Hunter and many more. From time to
time, the Blogger will sweeten the pot for the weekly contest so look
for special prize packages.
