Are You Ready For Some Football? Time To Join Our Weekly Football Pool! Yes It Is Free And There Are Prizes!

The strike is over and the season is right around the corner.  Last year we started a football pool and I am excited to say we are going to continue it for another year. Last year’s winner, Sarah Baird, will try and defend her title.

It is VERY easy to participate. Here are the rules:

  • WE HAVE ADDED ONE IMPORTANT RULE – WE WILL BE KEEPING TRACK OF CUMULATIVE SCORE AND WILL BE AWARDING A SPOT IN THE FINAL WEEK TO THE TOP 2 PEOPLE WHO PICK THE MOST CORRECT GAMES RIGHT FOR THE FIRST 16 WEEKS. IF THOSE PEOPLE WIN A WEEK THEY WILL BE AWARDED ANOTHER SPOT IN THE FINALE.
  • Every Monday (unless it is a holiday then it will be Friday or Tuesday) we will post a link to the weekly pool.
  • All you need to do is click on who you think the winner will be.
  • We are just picking winners. The point spread means NOTHING in this pool.
  • Every week we will have a winner. The winner will be the person who has the most correct games.
  • If there is a tie, the tiebreaker will be the total points of the Monday night game.
  • If there is still a tie there will be multiple winners.
  • All picks need to be in by Friday at 5:00 CST UNLESS there is a Thursday night game and then the picks need to be in by Thursday night by 5:00 CST.

The weekly prize will be a $50 American Express gift certificate. In addition, the person with the highest CUMULATIVE SCORE for the year will be awarded a $200.00 American Express gift certificate and the person who has the second highest cumulative score will be awarded a $100 American Express gift certificate. The tie-breaker (if needed) for the cumulative winners will be the total points for the Monday night game on week 16.

There is a bonus as well!

The pool will go on like this for 16 weeks. For week 17 only the winners of the prior 16 weeks and the 2 cumulative winners can participate for the grand prize which will be a $400 American Express gift certificate. If a person wins multiple weeks during the first 16 weeks they can have multiple entries in week 17.

I will be playing as well but CANNOT win the pool. I hope everyone will enjoy the football pool and I can’t wait to see who wins the first prize and has bragging rights until next year!

Good luck to all and click here to let the games begin!
