Hot Off The Presses
Hey everybody! It's me again! Thanks again to Anonymous for the two-part guest post.
It's a big week for a couple of the pies in which I have stuck my thumb and I'm here for the edumacation.
Offsprung v2.0 has launched and the site is bigger and better than ever! Here's the announcement of some of the new features, including Reproduciness, which will feature original parent-themed humor, like comics and videos; a new blog from Dr. Rob, Offspurng's own pediatrician and an expanded Playground, with complete profiles and the ability to upload pictures in a "family album."
And I am still pounding out AJ Tales at Don't Forget to Flush.
I implore you to check out the changes, tell your friends, design homemade t-shirts, pimp on your blogs and, if you like what you read, please Digg your favorites.
That goes for this, too. The NFL starts THIS SUNDAY. Football. Gridiron. Pigskin. I'm going to be sitting on my couch all day (hello NFL Sunday Ticket!) monitoring my parlays, eating wings and shouting at the television.
I'll also be refreshing Fantasy Sports Live every couple of seconds. If you're like me, being able to play single-day fantasy football contests is a godsend. My full-season team sucks (as always) and I'll lose interest by Week 8. I'm bad at it and can't be bothered to read newspapers every day. So you might want to enter an FSL contest with me in it (unlike baseball where I pwn each and every one of you). Just sayin'.
In addition, Blinders has set up an extra challenge for Bloggers. The info:
Announcing the first annual Blogger Fantasy Football Battle (BFFB) sponsored
The BFFB will bring together poker bloggers from around the country to compete in MTT style Fantasy Football contests that will run each week of the football season. $500 minimum will be added to the prize pool by FSL.
Each week starting September 9th, FSL will run 10-player $10 fee contests with BFFB in the title. Each contest will pay out $90 to the top three finishers that week. The results of all bloggers will be pooled together each week to determine the weekly BFFB results. Points will be awarded to the top 50% of finishers each week based on the PokerStars TLB formula. Points will be accumulated throughout the season to determine the overall champion. Added prizes by FSL are listed below. Also, any weekly overall winners will be invited to a Tournament of Champions at the end of the season.
1st Place Overall $100
2nd Place Overall $50
3rd Place Overall $25
1st Highest Individual Weekly Fantasy Score $100
2nd Highest Individual Weekly Fantasy Score $50
3rd Highest Individual Weekly Fantasy Score $25
Tournament of Champions
$150 minimum added to prize pool.
Results will be posted weekly on Blinders's site and more info can be found here. You can chose to compete weekly for your best chance at the season title, or just enter as many as you can. Even with a single weekly entry you are eligible for the highest score prize or with a win an entry in the tournament of champions. What we are doing with the BFFB has never been done before, and would not be possible without the daily contest format that we use. This format allows us to apples to apples compare 100s of fantasy football entries, which is impossible with standard fantasy offerings. Please help us make the BFFB a success, and spread the word about FSL.
Bonus money. Bonus bragging rights. Bonus opportunities to make fun of other bloggers.
And, as always, Bonus Code: Speaker gets you even more free cash to play with. Hope to see those BFFB slots filled up with y'all this Sunday. Maybe I'll shout at you in addition to my television.
