The Blogger improved to post 7 of 10 but it likely won’t be enough to hold on when the final tally is totaled. I posted the teams that won below and will have the weekly winner for you first thing in the morning on Tuesday. Thanks for playing and spread the word. In the meantime, I suggest reading my blog post above and making a prediction or two of your own or simply post why my predictions will never come to fruition.
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 and that’s where the Chipper Jones jersey comes into
play. If we can get more than 300 entries this week, the weekly winner will receive the Jones jersey so we need everybody to spread the word about the contest so we can reach our goal.
