Beat the Blogger Matchups

While there were several players who scored 9, it was Jeff Arends and his nearly perfect tiebreaker who topped the field in last week’s Beat the Blogger contest. The Blogger managed a solid score of 7 but it wasn’t enough to hold off the competition.

This week’s picks are now posted so Play Beat the Blogger and spread the word to your friends and co-workers. Simply copy and paste this link http://blog.tuffstuff.com/7thinning/

The
Beat the Blogger contest seems to be losing interest and could be in
danger of folding due to a lack of participation. To prevent this, send
the link above to your friends, co-workers, family and anybody else. Get
the new recruits to label their entry “referred by” and your name and
win a prize just for helping boost the numbers the first person to
successfully recruit (20) new players with referral post will win a (5)
pack of signed photos.

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://blog.tuffstuff.com/7thinning/

Copy and paste our link and send it to your friends so they can

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.
