Welcome to Beat the Blogger. Rules are below. Enter each week,
pick the most games correctly and win a signed 8×10. That simple.
have a lot of winners this week, all which picked 8 of 10 correctly and I forgo to have a tiebreaker question – so everyone wins. Congratulations to Diana, Durward, Lisa Marecek and Don.
This week’s match-ups are posted below.
As 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.
