First and foremost, congratulations to Bob Simmons,
who selected 8 of the 9 games correctly. Well done.
This week’s match-ups are posted below.
Copy and paste our link and send it to your friends so they can
be a part of the action, http://www.tuffstuff.com/7thinning/. Remember to provide a
tie-breaker, as noted below.
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 match-ups each week and then selects his
choices for the winners of those match-ups. Contestants enter the Beat
the Blogger contest by clicking on the “Comment” section below the post
with the match-ups and then select their own 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.
