Hogs Haven Pick'em League

This season is a go for the Hogs Haven Pick'em League. You guys can join via this link. Prizes are yet defined though will likely include bragging rights demonstrated through a front page post and possibly some financial reward (understanding that my ability to pay non-trivial amounts of money stymied largely by life choices and current employment status). Here's the official blurb written on our behalf:

Announcing the Hogs Haven NFL Pick'em Game

We are excited to announce a new feature here at Hogs Haven!  In conjunction with FunOfficePools, we will be running a NFL football pick'em game.  Let's find out who is really the best prognosticator of the pigskin.  Each week we'll be predicting the winners of every NFL football game.  We're picking straight up, but you get bonus points for correctly picking underdogs.  You always get 1 point if you correctly pick the favorite to win.  If the spread is less than 3, than whichever team you pick to win is worth 1 point.  If the spread is between 3 and 7, you can earn 2 points for correctly picking the underdog.  And if you correctly pick a 7 point or greater underdog, you get 3 points!

To participate, just join our pool . It's completely free to play, and is spam-free as well. The pool is open now to join, and first picks are due by Sept 4th - so sign up now. The pool will run the whole regular season. Let's get as many of you signed up as we can, and find out who really is the best at picking winners in football. If you've already signed up, click here to go to the FunOfficePools main page and log in.

As always, taking suggestions on prizes and also much garbage-talking is encouraged. I think you all know that I'm a miserable NFL pick'em player from last year's Blogger Deathsport, where I failed in an epic fashion. I will also return to inept this year as we plan on doing more Blogger Deathsport, though this time with increased participation to truly put my inability to pick winners in perspective.

You guys need to join the Pick'em league ASAP, though I presume people will be able to join late, your odds of winning are best if you get points from the get-go. Dismantling me and my sometimes irrational picks should be no difficult task, though hopefully we have someone here at the site capable of avoiding disastrous picks.

Also, just by way of reminder, Hogs Haven Fantasy Football draft is this Tuesday at 9PM Eastern. If you're in, try and be there. If not email me and I can work out possibly helping you make picks by telephone that evening, if you're open to that.
