Baseball Playoffs Contest

Pick the winner of each series. Two DS, two WCS, two LCS, and the WS. Make your picks before the start of the Red Sox game on Thursday. (((*****NEW DEADLINE-THURSDAY AT NOON!)))) Yes, that means you will have three games under your belt, but I want to leave enough time for entries. The prize, the only prize, is $50 of NYS instant scratch tickets, chosen by me. I will be entering, too. Tell your friends and relatives. Your entry should be made here in the comments and should look like this:

Yankees, Red Sox, Yankees

Phillies, dodgers, Phillies

Yankees

or something similar. just make it simple and easy to understand, please.

The UPS driver, my buddy and a Yankee fan was telling me about a bar he goes to where they have a football pool every Thursday for the first 100 players. Entry is $20. The winner(s) of the week get $1500 to split. No spread, just pick the winners. At the end of the season, there is enough money for the grand prize of $10,000.

Edit-Note the new deadline of Thursday at Noon.

You get one point for each series. Pick the winner of the WS and you have 3 pts minimum.

Actually, Dad, if you wait until before the RS game tomorrow, you'll have 5 games already decided. Both Game 2s in the NL series should be finished by the time the RS game starts.

Dad said...

Thanks, Luke. Am ammending it so that all entries must be in by noon Thursday.

Rabble Rabble Rabble???

I'll have to work on my entry tonight. I've got a reputation to uphold here.

I can't get on Facebook at work but will put something there tonight to alert the farther-flung Murphies such as Claire who probably don't check the blog daily.

I'm having trouble deciding if I should be faithful to the Sox or go with my gut. It's complicated!!

Caleb said...

I've got my picks all made, I'm just gonna wait until after tonight's games in case anything drastic changes.

WS: Angels (yes, really. I'm just guessing here.)


Sorry I'm late! You can accept it or not. if not, I'll live, I promise. I've been hanging out with a sick cat since 11:30, so I haven't seen any scores of today's game, I swear. If they've even started.

Caleb said...

Laura says that I should say that my submission was late because I was busy saving puppies. Actually, that's fairly accurate. We totally saved a puppy this week, and he went home this morning.

Mom said...

Yay for saved puppies!

Here is an entry that is nowhere near as late as it looks. It's from my friend from Lexis, Elizabeth, who sent me this yesterday afternoon -- and then I couldn't see it until this morning because frontier was down all afternoon and overnight. Dad says it counts.

Yankees-Red Sox-Red Sox.

Philly-St. Louis-Philly

Red Sox.

Thank you, Elizabeth Papendorp.

Dad said...

OK. I count 12 entries:

Good Luck to all, especially Me!
