Please forgive me and feel free to flag (or wave) this post if BTSC is the improper forum for this. I run a straight up pick 'em pool (i.e. no spreads) through a noted sports website. This is my 4th year running the pool. Last year I had 40 people in it and I am trying to expand participation, perhaps even double it this year. I will spare everyone the details here, but, if you are interested and would like more details, please e-mail me at the address on my profile page and I will get you more information from home.
I will say that it is a lot of fun and their is a weekly payout and overall payout to the top 4 or 5 finishers at the end of the season. Last year it was $250 p/week and @ $1,250 for 1st place.
In closing I'd like to say that in no way do I profit from this endeavor and there are no exemptions. Everyone who participates submits an entry fee and all the money I receive is paid out in full by the end of the season.
Once again, I apologize in advance if this is an improper forum for this "ad." Michael, moderators, et al, if you feel this is innapropriate in any way, I will not be offended if you zap it.
8 DAYS AND COUNTING!! GO STEELERS!!
