We here at BRB are geeked to announce a new feature that will allow all of us to memorialize our foolishness for all eternity. In conjunction with FunOfficePools, we've decided to run a NFL football pick 'em contest. Each week, we all can put our thinkin' caps on to predict the winners of every NFL game. Picks are straight up, but bonus points are awarded for correctly picking underdogs. If you correctly pick a favorite to win, you'll be awarded one (1) point. If the spread is less than three (3) points, it's a virtual pick 'em; whichever team you pick to win is worth a point. If the spread is between three (3) and seven (7) points, you get two (2) points for correctly picking the underdog. And if you correctly pick a dog who's getting seven or more (7+) points, you get three (3) points.
Why participate, you ask? First and foremost, to prove to everyone here at BRB that you're the king of the idiots. If that doesn't entice you, how about this: Winner of the pool gets a choice of (1) writing a post on whatever he/she wants for front page placement or (2) a free BRB t-shirt (whenever we get around to making them).
To participate, click here to join our pool. It's completely free to play, and I'm told that FunOfficePools.com is spam-free. The pool is open now to join, and first picks are due by September 4th (Thursday)...so sign up now. The pool will run the whole regular season.Bring it!
