Welcome to Beat the Blogger. Rules are below. Enter each week, pick the most games correctly and win a signed 8×10. That simple.
Last week: There were plenty of close calls, but two people came out on top, picking nine of the 10 games correctly: Andrew Greb and Christie Merkle. Congrats to both, who also got the tiebreaker correct.
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.
Week of April 11 match-ups: (with Blogger’s picks in parenthesis)
We’ll hold off until Thursday for the matchups so we can include some NBA Playoff games in the lineup. Check back then, please.
