Beat the Blogger Matchups

Congratulations to Paul Sherman who scored a 9 last week to Beat the Blogger’s total of 6 and beat the field to win this week’s special Super Bowl edition of the Beat the Blogger contest.

This
week’s
matchups are posted below soon so make sure you get your
picks posted before the start of the first game on Saturday.

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.

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 b
contest.jpge 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.
