Welcome to another edition of Beat the Blogger.
Congrats to Martin Kelly and Elizabeth Bertel, who both correctly predicted 8 of the 10 match-ups last week. Both got the tie-breaker wrong (Texas ws shut out), so both of them win. Prizes will be mailed shortly.
Now on to this week’s match-ups.
a reminder, contestants please post your e-mail address with your picks
to be able to get addresses when you win. 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.
