Beat the Blogger Matchups

Congrats to John K and
Matt G
who both posted scores of 8 to share the top honors and because they
both shard the same tiebreaker as well they will both be receiving
prizes. This week’s contestants will need to be well-rounded ,as there are NBA, NHL and MLB matchups to pick.

This
week’s matchups are posted below so
make sure you get your picks posted before the start of
the first game on Saturday.
Good
luck and spread the word on the contest before there is no more contest.
THIS MEANS YOU, SEE BELOW FOR INSTRUCTIONS.

Copy and paste our link and send it to your friends on Facebook, Twitter
and anywhere else so they can be a part of the action and we can boost
our total list of contestants, http://www.tuffstuff.com/7thinning/

With the number of weekly participants slipping a bit the last
few weeks I’m making a call to action to all of our regulars to do some
recruiting. While more people means more work for the Blogger and more
people for the Blogger to go up against, I welcome the challenge and
offer this challenge to you: If each player can recruit 10 new players
and we can boost the total to 200 or more, I’ll triple the weekly prize.
So spread the word about the contest to all your co-workers, family and
friends and meet that goal and boost the prize.

Copy and paste our link and send it to your friends so they can
be a part of the action, http://www.tuffstuff.com/7thinning/

This week’s winners are posted below so check to see how you fared
against the field.

While I enjoy giving prizes to several people vs. having just one weekly
winner, from this point forward contestants will be asked to provide a
tie-breaker on the week’s last game so we narrow our winner down to one.
Contestants will now be asked to predict the total score from the last
game on the list and the closest to the actual score will be deemed the
winner).

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.

You can
also designate one of your picks as a “Doubler” and you will receive an
extra point if you’re correct so don’t forget to designate your
“Doubler” pick and increase your chances of winning. 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.
