KDP's 10 For 10: Pristine Week 15

John Grieshop

Three weeks to go! Can you add your name to the history books before the season is over?

Writers Note: Don't forget you don't have to wait for this post to get your picks in, head over to HH's Holday Bonus Pack and make your picks for Weeks 16 & 17 at any time!

Man, some of us are fading quicker than a black t-shirt being washed in hot water. I won't name any names (cough, myself, cough) but after being near the top of the leaderboard all season the visions of being the creator and season champ are going up in smoke for one guy. After another frustrating week of only getting 6 picks correct, I am now 6 behind our season lader, "CowboyBaby" but more importantly have about 15 people in between us that would also have to fold down the stretch in order for me to win.

Such is the life in the season long portion of our 10 for 10 competition. Speaking of the life we have here, I draw your attention over to my right-hand-man, hookerhome, and his most recent FanPost. As usual, HH turns in a Pro Bowl performance in the article, but I draw your attention to the comment he made about getting to know so many of the competition's competitors over the last couple years.

When I started the competition during the 2010 season, barely anybody here knew who I was. I posted under a screenname (KDP, obviously) so there was little connection to me being the KD Drummond that always called in and wrote to the Lunch Break radio show on The Mothership. Our fearless leader Dave had posted a "job announcement" during the summer that he was looking for additional writers and I thought to myself that since I wasn't well-known, I'd have to do something to establish myself. I devised the 10 for 10 contest, and then included in that weekly post a recap for the Cowboys game, betting advice and pictures of eye candy for our community to enjoy. All things I was infinitely familiar with. After showing the consistency of churning out that content week after week, Dave and OCC (who was a participant in the contest as a FanPost) saw my worth and brought me on board.

Now look at me. I write for 10's of thousands Cowboys fans a week. I tweet to almost 8,000 folks every Cowboys thought that runs through my mind. I've done guest spots on radio shows around the country as a "Cowboys expert". I'm doing podcasts and Youtube videos, interviewing Cowboys players such as DeMarcus Ware, Gerald Sensabaugh and others. I'm living the dream of a die-hard Cowboys fan and it's all thanks to two things, this contest I devised and this awesome community that supports me.

So when I read HH's comment about how much fun it's been getting to know a lot of you through this contest I sit back, chuckle and think, "me too." I'm glad this contest has meant something to people other than me.

Alright, enough with the side bar-- let's get to the contest! It's Week 15 and there's a lot of tough games to pick!

1 - YOU MUST PREDICT A WINNER OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS GAME IN YOUR TEN PICKS. If you leave off the Cowboys game, then only nine other games get counted, and the Cowboys game is scored as "wrong", no matter who wins.

2 - You must pick ONLY 10 games. If you pick more than 10, I will score the first nine plus the Cowboys game. If you pick fewer than 10, then you need more fingers to count on; all non-picks will be scored as wrong.

3 - You must make your entry as a comment, not as a reply to another comment. I will only go down the left margin when scoring. Anything indented will get no love here, playa.

4 - 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 all the matchups from the post, then highlight your pick for each game and hit the B button. Oh, please do me and hookerhome a favor - leave the games in the same order, and delete the extra games that you are not picking (leave just the ten that you want scored). It makes tabulation much easier.

5 - Hit the preview button, because once it's submitted, that's it - there's no turning back.

6 - Picks must be in before the early games of Sunday kickoff in order to try to score 10-for-10. Here are two exceptions:

  • If you're including THURSDAY night's game in your picks but not ready to pick Sunday's games, post 'THURSDAY GAME ONLY' in your subject line.
  • If you miss the early games kickoff deadline with your picks, you can still submit picks for games that have not kicked off (as long as the Cowboys haven't kicked off). You won't be able to score 10-for-10 without the early games, but that might help you in the overall season-long race.
  • Don't forget to look for the "10 For 10" hub on the new front page! You'll always be able to find the latest article or Fan Post there for easy access to get your picks in!
