Welcome to Beat the Blogger. This is something started by our sister publication, Tuff Stuff, and will now continue on this blog. Rules are below. Enter each week, ppick the most games correctly and win a signed 8×10. That simple.
Congratulations to Don,
who selected 9 games correctly last week and won via a tie-breaker over two others. Well done.
This week’s match-ups are posted below.
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 an authentic signed 8-by-10 photo of a professional athlete.
