Welcome to Beat the Blogger. Rules are below. Enter each week, pick the most games correctly and win a signed 8×10. That simple.
This week’s match-ups are posted below.
a reminder, I ask 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. Please fill out the tie-breaker question
at the end.
If you Beat The Blogger’s total and post the high
score for the week, you win. The regular weekly prize is a signed
8-by-10 photo of a professional athlete.
