Welcome to Beat the Blogger. Rules are below. Enter each week,
pick the most games correctly and win a signed 8×10. That simple.
Congratulations to Cyrus Gilman,
who selected all 10 games correctly the week of Feb. 28. 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.
Week of March 7 matchups, Sat. and Sun. games
(with Blogger’s picks in parenthesis)
This week is a little tougher to pick games with all of the conference tournaments taking place in college basketball this weekend. So this week’s Beat the Blogger will ask a few different questions:
(1.-4.)Pick the No. 1 seeds in the NCAA tournament – all the ones you get right will be one point (4 total)
My picks – Ohio State, Kansas, Pittsburgh, Duke
5.) Does Michigan State make the tournament – Yes or No?
6.) Will the Big East get 11 teams in the field?
7.) Lakers at Dallas (Dallas)
8.) Orlando at Phoenix (Orlando)
9.) Charlotte at Toronto (Charlotte)
10.) Portland at Atlanta (Atl)
Ozzie Guillen will make some sort of outrageous statement by week’s end. (Yes)
