Sticky Post until we get some more pick'em players!
We need to get the community more involved here, and so this is my first attempt at it - the 2011 Nova Blog Football Pick 'Em Contest! And yes, there will be prizes! If you are interested in playing, please make sure to read the official rules.
Here's the short version:
- Head over to Fun Office Pools (you'll need to create an account if you don't have one) and join "The Nova Blog Football Pick'em 2011"
- There will be a weekly winner here that will win a $10 gift certificate to Gameday Depot (you can only be a weekly winner once per month)
- There will also be a grand prize winner who has the best record across the entire season. They will win a $50 gift certificate to Gameday Depot.
- You cannot join more than one pool across the SBN network (other sites are doing this as well) so don't even bother entering other sites' pools, you can't win more than once in any given 30 day period (except that winning a weekly contest at any time doesn't disqualify you from also winning the grand prize), and tiebreakers will be used to preclude ties.
- You'll be picking the 10 games that we list each week (against the spread) and assigning a confidence value (1-10) for each game. You have until Thursday night (September 1st) at kickoff time to select your picks for the 1st week.
We will be providing posting a weekly results post, and if you are the winner, you should be getting your prize within 3 business days. I am not eligible for the prizes, but you will see me in the pool showcasing my
talents skills guesses.
Any questions? Feel free to ask away in the comments. Have at it!
