The Sweek

Last week I met one of my two goals, with the Smiths of Baseball entry getting the shaft. But apparently people like this new "favorite Sox by number" thing so that made up for it. The latest Smith will go up this week, along with a very special episode of RSFPT late in the week as the big baseball day approaches.

I have a crazy idea. You know how the Super Bowl squares contest only inludes the last digit of each team's score? What if we did one with every possible score? You could cap it at 49, making it a 50 x 50 grid, with numbers going from 0 to 49 along each side. 2500 people could play! And you'd be truly rooting for your exact score, not just the last digit. If you did with with money, the prizes would be incredible. I would totally host that if it were legal. In the meantime, I'd have to just give out prizes and have people enter for free. But we'd have to start, like, now!

Since you can't score 1 in football, though, it would have to be 0-50 with no 1. Which kinda makes it cooler anyway. And the 50 square would be "at least 50".

10 bucks a square= $25,000 in prizes! Someone should do this. And you could do a 150 x 150 grid and do it for basketball!
No ties either, but I like the idea. Big money, big money, no whammies!
You can still win quarter 1, 2, or 3 if you have the same score for each team. But if you wanted to avoid having no winner for the grand prize, you could just X out each of the 50 tie boxes.
