Pigskin Predictions

Yay, it's the heart of football season and I have been loving every minute of it.  Our local newspaper has a contest called Pigskin Predictions for 10 weeks.  Every week in the paper they give 10 games that you have to try to pick the winner for.  The person who picks the most right for the week wins a $50 gift certificate to one of the sponsoring local businesses.  In the end they keep track of the whole season and the overall winners get $300 for 1st, $150 for 2nd and $50 for third. 

Last week was the first week of the challenge, but I fell flat on my face and only picked 5 of the winners.  This week the gift certificate is for Subway and here are my pics:
New Orleans over Houston
Detroit over Minnesota
Green Bay over Chicago
Baltimore over St. Louis
Philadelphia over NY Giants
Syracuse over Toledo
Texas A&M over OK State
Arizona State over USC
Boise State over Tulsa

So far we have been playing for 4-5 years and never won anything.  Several times my husband and I tied the winner and gotten our names in the paper, but the tiebreaker is to pick the combined scores of all 10 games, and thus far we have never won the tiebreaker.  This week I picked 408 as my tiebreaker.

  1. You crack me up! I don't love football. I like to watch it in real life, but I like watching basketball more. :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
