I am embarrassed. I woke up on Sunday morning at around 5 AM in a fit of insomnia. I had a couple projects to get out of the way before the games started, had to make sure that my fantasy football teams were updated and I had to figure out which of my prognostications I'd wager on. By the time I finished all of that six hours later, I was exhausted and crashed out around 11 am. I awoke about 15 minutes into the early games and thought to myself, boy am I glad I got my bets in already.
What I didn't think about, was that I forgot to enter my own contest! Inexcusable mistake that effectively removes me from the running for the season-long title chase. I must persevere! I am now solely focused on getting all 10 for 10 at least once this season. Renewed focus. I will stop waiting until the last minute and will make my selections today!
First things first (or second things second), make sure you check out The Week 8 Scoring Update from this contest's right-hand man, hookerhome. No one was able to correctly pick 10 for 10 last week, as most fans missed by picking the Saints and the Cowboys. Here's a look at the Hall of Fame.
|SINGLE WEEK '10 FOR 10' HALL OF FAME|
|I Am Ironman!!!||2011||2|
|BishopWest||2010||Reigning Season Champ|
Follow the jump for the contest.
1 - You must only pick 10 games. If you pick more than 10, I will score the first 10. If you pick less than 10, then you need more fingers to count on; all non-picks will be scored as wrong.
ii) You must make your entry as a reply to the post, not another comment. I will only go down the left margin when scoring. Anything indented will get no love here, playa.
B: You must include the entire matchup in your entry. Simply BOLD the team in the matchup you are picking to win. No lists of only the winners you pick. If you want me to take the time to score your entry, take the time to format it correctly. It's easy, just copy and paste the matchups from the post, then highlight your pick and hit the B button.
3. YOU MUST PREDICT A WINNER OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS GAME IN YOUR TEN PICKS. New rule for 2011 and front page status.
D - Hit the preview button, because once it's submitted, that's it- there's no turning back.
D v2.0 - Picks must be in before the early games of Sunday kickoff. No exceptions. If you're including Thursday night's game in your picks but not ready to pick Sunday's game, post 'THURSDAY GAME ONLY' in your subject line.
Week 9 brings us 14 games on the schedule as the bye week's start to wind down.Panthers, Lions, Vikings and Jaguars take the week off. No #KillaCam? He's now a Sunday Ticket lock as long as they aren't playing at the same time as the Boys.
