8th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web - Championship Series Review


Well now.  I'm a bit disappointed.  But I it's been a great season as a Brewers fan.  Just wish they could have pulled one more out.  Anyways the Series is set.  We lost another 16 players.  We had 15 players correctly predict that either the Red Sox or the Dodgers will be winning the World Series.  And we have 4 players that correctly picked the match up!!! Nicely done guys.  Looks like the Red Sox are the odds on favorite with the group and if they win will have a 3 way tie going to games and maybe even homers to break the tie.  If the Dodgers pull it out bbcarz takes home the prize all by themselves.  Alright I'll have a summary after the series and the door prize winner.  Thanks for playing everybody.

8th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web - Official Entry Post


Sorry for the delay.  First I want to say thank you to all 39 people who entered the contest!!  I've been neglecting this blog all year and it seems I have less and less I want to try and find time to blog about.  But I do still contribute pretty regularly to A Pack A Day and post fairly frequently on my Robin Yount blog.  Ahem enough excuses, what I'm trying to say is that it's a great turn out since I don't blog here much anymore.  I've copied over your entries from the official entry post, so if you entered and I screwed up and you're missing let me know.  Also let me know if you shared or promoted the contest and forgot to let me know on your entry.  If you have a PIMP by your name it means you helped spread the word.  I also have to apologize.  In contests past I've let people who got in before the wild card games and one of their teams didn't make it update their picks.  I meant to do that this year, but forgot to mention it.  That being said if anyone would like to pick a team other than Chicago or the A's let me know by Monday!  You can't however change anything else about your pick.  Leave a comment on this post, please.
OK see you all after the Divisional Series' get done.

8th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web - Official Sign up Post!!


Hard to believe it's that time of year again.  Also hard to believe this will be my 8th World Series contest.   And man a couple down to the wire divisional contests.  I've got my fingers crossed the Brewers can upset the Cubs in Wrigley tomorrow to take the division.  And while the divisions may not be decided the post season has.

Like years past all I want you to tell me is who's going to win the whole thing!  Of course it's likely will have more than one person pick the right team so we need some tie breakers as well.

So you'll also need to pick the opponent, the number of games the series will go, and total number of home runs hit by both teams.

Your pick should look something like this.

Brewers over the Yankees in 5, 15 HR's

Here are your choices
National League
Milwaukee Brewers
Chicago Cubs
Atlanta Braves
Colorado Rockies
LA Dodgers

American League
New York Yankees
Boston Red Sox
Cleveland Indians
Houston Astros
Oakland A's

You'll have till Saturday Oct. 6th, 4pm Alaska Time, Noon EST to get your picks in.  Feel free to wait till after the wild card games if you want.  

So what are you playing for?  How about a nice stack of 6 1979 Hostess 3 card panels.  Most still have enough of the border to be nicely cut out.  Full discloser there is some staining on the backs of a few of these. But included is a nice Garvey/Schmidt and Stargell. Plus the prize will include a bunch of cards from the winners favorite team(s), that might include autos, relic, parallels, inserts, who knows depends on what I have and find in the stacks.

And as like usual there will be a door prize. Not sure exactly what that will be yet, but it will include cards of that winners favorite team as well.  Plus if you share or promote this post on social media or your own blog you'll get an additional entry into the door prize contest. Please leave a link to your share or promotion so I know you did it.  Alright get to picking! And I'll have reminders all week.
