It’s the national past time.
When I was a young kid, I was a huge Dodgers fan. I remember hanging out with a friend at his house where everyone was a Dodger fan, too. I lived in L.A. at the time, and the Dodgers were having a good year. I was at my friend’s house every weekend that a home game played.
Ironically, I was never able to attend a Dodger home game when I was a kid. I went to plenty of Angels games, though. Back then, they were known as the Anaheim Angels.
I rememebr the year Kirk Gibson hit the big series home run. Ah, memories.
This Weekly Contest is about baseball.
This coming Monday are the following three baseball games:
Los Angeles D v. Philadelphia (Game 1)
NY v. Tampa Bay (Game 2)
Los Angeles A v Houston (Game 3)
For this weekly contest, pick the score for each of the above teams.
At stake is our usual weekly contest prize of real pari of red and white Las Vegas chips that you can collect or cash out.
You can organize your scores like this:
LAD 5, Ph 3
NY 2, TB 6
LAA 4, H 2
If you feel a bit lazy, or you feel like you just want to spin the wheel, you can just enter six random numbers like this:
If that’s what you enter, then I will assign each number to the above games, in the above order of LAD, Philadelphia, NY, Tampa Bay, LAA, Houston. We are looking to make it easy for you to enter. It’s all about customer service around these parts!
Your entry will be scored according to the following for each team:
- Perfect Score
- 10 points
- -1 point for each run off
- 2x penalty deduction (for that team) for going over
Perfect score is 60 points.
Tie breaker for tied entries after above scoring:
- Ties will be compared using game 1
- Picked the winning team by assigning a higher run total to the actual winning team for game 1
- +1 point
- If still tied, go to game 2
- Picked the winning team by assigning a higher run total to the actual winning team for game 2
- +1 point
- If still tied, go to game 3
- Picked the winning team by assigning a higher run total to the actual winning team for game 3
- +1 point
- If still tied, then coin flip.
In the event that you make similar entries to a prior entry, then the later entry, as determined by the time stamp, shall have 1 run added to each score until the entry is a unique entry. Fore example, if there are two entries that have 1,2,1,2,1,2, then the later entry shall become 2,3,2,3,2,3 at the moment the contest closes, but prior to scoring. If the resulting entry is not unique because there was already an existing entry with the same scores, then the same entry shall become 3,4,3,4,3,4, etc, until it is unique.
So if you do not want your entry to be involuntarily changed, be sure to look at the other entries to make sure you are not copying anyone else’s entry, especially if you use a very obvious entry.
Remember that if you have not posted prior, we filter first comments for spam. After your first comments, you will be good to go, and your comments will appear immediately.
Entries will close prior to the start of the earliest of the there games.
