tBBC Goes Bowling!!!

Obligatory Rose Bowl Photo

Ah, the most wonderful time of the year.  As if you needed an excuse to sit around and watch football, having it on eleventy days of the week means that you’ve got a built in excuse to avoid certain members of your family and drown out your kids’ “holiday pageant rehearsal” noise.

‘Cause, really… how many times can a person botch “Jolly Old Saint Nicholas” on the recorder before some sort of homicide happens?

And, since you’re going to watch the games anyway (or at least tell people that you are- what you do with the LSU/Alabama matchup is your business) you might as well win something, right?

So- it’s time for The Buckeye Battlecry Bowl Spectacular!!!

First, and foremost- congrats to Steven who kicked major tail in our regular season contest, picking and grinning at a 74% accuracy rate. We’re working on his prize package (hint, it involves knitting), and we hope to have a guest post from him up soon.  Oh, and no, his residence on the West Coast had nothing to do with his victory.

As a way to keep things interesting, we’re also using “confidence points” this year… just think of it as “wagering” and we’ll go from there.

The victorious entry will get the Amazing tBBC Gift Pack (almost as awesome as this): Guest post (’cause who doesn’t want to be famous on the internet?) and a shirt from our bag of swag.  In case of two winners (points and picks), we’ll come up with something… probably a Christmas leftover and so forth.

One entry per person, por favor; deadline is whenever Yahoo! says it is- and yes, there’s a reason we’re not using the eSECpn format this year.

We’ll be covering the bowls in our usual irreverent manner over the next few weeks, but for now you can get excited with this amazing National Championship Game Hype Video!!

    Give it a shot, Ian- we’ll probably crown a “picks” and “points” champ. :)

    I don’t think it makes much difference one way or the other, since most of us will be ‘set decoration’ anyway. It does add the wrinkle where I might actually have to think about the Bowl Season Gestalt, so that should be entertaining. Looking forward to this.
