Beat The Blogger Results

The Blogger is embarrassed to report he posted his worst score in the history of the Beat The Blogger contest, managing to correctly pick just two of the 10 matchups. Fortunately for the contestants, that just makes it easier to win and Mike Pattison did just that with a score of 8 to claim this week’s weekly prize.

week’s matchups are all NFL games which will hopefully allow the Blogger a chance to get back to respectability. Check back later to see the matchups and make sure you
get your picks posted prior to the
week’s first game to be eligible to win. Good luck and spread the word
and help grow the contest.

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 contest.jpgchoices 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.
