First off, hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving Holiday. Also wanted to say thanks to those who recruited some new players to play Beat the Blogger. We had a couple people ask if it was OK to recruit their children and/or spouses to play and my answer to that is: “What took you so long, the more the merrier and the better the prizes.” So spread the word and remind the newbies of the rules and to use their “Doubler” and good luck to all.
With several upsets on the docket there were only a handful of contestants that bettered the Blogger’s total of 7, but Joseph Schuld was one of them with a 9 total and he won last week’s Beat the Blogger contest by virtue of his tiebreaker total, edging newcomer Ryder Gilman.
This week’s matchups are posted below 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/

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.
