And then there were 3 - Contest Update

Wow what a day for football.  My Pack made it in for the first time since 1997 and the Steelers hold on to make it once again.     I'm kinda glad that the Jets didn't make it in, they would have been the spoilers for the contest.  But I would have much perfered the Pack play them then the Steelers.

Fat boy can catch!!!!  The Freezer.

So you all know I'm happy the Pack made it in.  Although I firmly believe they are going to have to step it up big time to take on the Steelers.  We've gotten way to lucky that last couple of games.  And almost got beat by a 3rd string QB.  But were in and I'll take it.

But the Bears and Jets loss means we are down to 3 contestants in Almost the Easiest Super Bowl Contest on the Web.

Adam E: STEELERS over Bears 17-6
Mark: PACKERS over Patriots 24-17
Colby (Flywheels): STEELERS over Falcons 24-17

So it looks like if the Steelers take it we have to go to the scores but if the Pack pulls it out Mark will win outright.  Congrats to Adam E, Mark and Colby getting to the finals in my contest.

And here is the bonus prize for all who entered.

It' a 2010 Topps Prime Quad Rookie Patch #d to 175 featuring Jahvid Best, Toby Gerhart, Rob Gronkowski, and Damian Williams.

So we've got 2 weeks I'll announce the winner of the contest and the bonus prize the Monday after the Super Bowl probably. 

Go Pack.

cb out.


  1. That, my friend, is a gorgeous card.

  2. So how is the tie breaker going to work when Pittsburgh wins? Is it going to be closest to the spread, closest score, or something else??

  3. IF Pittsburg wins, whoever picked closest to the score wins. That being said yes it's just like the Price is Right but with no penatly for going over. The rules were pick the winning team. Then first tie breaker was the opponent, second tie breaker was closest to the winning score, and if by some chance we still didn't have a winner the 3rd tie breaker would be closest to the losers score. And if we still didn't have a winner, I would use a random number generator to pick the winner. Official tie break rules here:

    But it looks like we should have an outright winner with winning score if Pittsburg should win since you and Colbey have a 7 point spread in your winning score predictions.
