Week 17 Contest
The final week of the regular season has arrived, and I must say the second installment of 10 For 10 has been a rousing success. I want to thank all of you for taking the time to make entries every week, some better at remembering than others (cough, me, cough). We had great turn-out this season, despite people fighting for bragging rights and Hall-Of-Fame infamy instead of the prizes I was able to award last season. I'll be working hard in the offseason to see if I can correct things in legal-land that make it a bit easier to do giveaways. Heck, maybe we return in 2012 with a sponsor!
I can't go any further without recognizing the outstanding job that has been done by volunteer hookerhome, in keeping track of all the 10-For-10 madness. Last year, when I ran the contest, I made two posts a week. For most of the 2011 season I've been anywhere between 8-15 and keeping track of 80+ weekly entrants would have been a chore. HH came out of nowhere to volunteer his services and I'm extremely thankful. What started out as simple tabulations early on has spiraled into epic trend analysis in his Weekly Updates post. Cheers to you, sir.
On to Week 17. Jebediah Fibberbush has a two-pick lead on the closest competition, so the four folks within three picks might have to pull of the daily double; a perfect week and the season title. There was a question as to what happens should there be a tie, and the answer is... Co-Champions! If the NFL can have Co-MVP's then I'm pretty sure we can get away with Co-Champs, right?
Here's a look at our four-week-stagnant Hall Of Fame. Do you have what it takes to join the elite?

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.
