Beat the Blogger Results and New Matchups

First and foremost, congratulations to Glen Berger, who selected 9 of the 10 games correctly. Well done.

Going forward, I will discontinue the doubler aspect – I believe the tie-breaker is enough of a separation point.

This week’s matchups are posted below. I picked Saturday and Sunday games to provide a little more time. Should be some 10s here.

Copy and paste our link and send it to your friends so they can
be a part of the action, http://blog.tuffstuff.com/7thinning/. Remember to provide a
tie-breaker on the week’s last game.
Contestants are 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.

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 a professional athlete.

    I don’t know what the tiebreaker score will be, but I wont be online again for the weekend, so I will make my picks now and hope a score doesnt get posted later on and I miss out. So hopefully the total points wont count this week since wasnt posted now.
