While it wasn’t quite the grand finale I was hoping for, the Blogger posted a respectable score of 6 in a week full of upsets in his final week of hosting the Beat the Blogger Contest. Rick K claimed the prize with an impressive score of 9 with many others falling victim to the numerous upsets. Congratulations to Rick and thanks to all of your for playing over the last three years. Tom Bartsch will takeover duties as the new Blogger and the contest will continue as usual so continue to play and encourage your friend, family and co-workers to join in as well.

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
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.
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.
