The marketing department of The TATTLER proudly presents the virtual newspaper’s latest promotion:

. . . . . AFriendFinder TATTLER
. . . . Presents The First Annual
. . . . BlogLand Football Contest

. . . . . . . . . . . . Win Prizes!
. . . And Follow Your Favorite Teams!

Fall is here and so is football season. Yes, we are talkin’ macho rock ‘em, sock ‘em American football. None of that soccer dressed up as football. What do you take us for? French supporters of Senator John Kerry? Those people are out wind-surfing. Get with the program people and get the football fever!

Here’s how you play:

First, leave your predictions each week in the independent football column Helmet Heads Only. (Posted each Wednesday.)

Next, sit back and watch the games. Relax a little before throwing items in your living room at the television.

Then, tally up your score and see if you won. It’s that simple!


First Prize: a set of authentic Zircon-encrusted tweezers and a lifetime subscription to The TATTLER.

Second Prize: a Sears poncho and a one year subscription to The TATTLER.

Third Prize: a free coupon to St. Alphonso’s Pancake Breakfast and a one month subscription to The TATTLER.

Prizes Awarded Weekly!

*This contest is conducted jointly by Rockin’ After Midnight Productions and The TATTLER. The independent column Helmet Heads Only is solely owned by Rockin’ After Midnight Productions. The TATTLER’s Marketing Manager is the sole arbiter of the winners of the weekly contest. In the event of a tie, the entry submitted first will be declared the winner. Therefore, no winner will be awarded in case of a tie with the official predictions posted in Helmet Heads Only. No substitutions or credits are allowed in lieu of the prizes. Winners are responsible for the handling and shipping of their prizes. The Marketing Manager will not accept shrubbery in trade for the prizes. Anyone who does not fully read or comprehend these rules will be disqualified. All who play are required to read this disclaimer with the exception of Wyvern Rose who reads all disclaimers. This contest is not available in the following territories and nations because it does not conform to the laws of these areas: Guam; Burkina Fasso; Iceland; and Paraguay. Just because you read down this far does not allow you to skip any of the above stated rules. Sorry!

im not sure i can follow u on this one, rock, for me "football" is a sports where u use feet more than hands (unless ur a goalie).
And by the way, thats the opinion from everywhere in the world, but North America.

anyway, i can play, is it against the spread or just straight up?

These Gringos call football a game they play with their hands, a game which is really rugby with full body armor (wusses!). Football is what the rest of the world plays with its feet.

FIFA vs NFL? No contest...

>>>[blog dz2502], Helga & Princess K... I see I did not slather on enough sarcasm in this post. I'll make sure to apply more next time. I am quite aware of the U.S. penchant for adopting an ethnocentric view on this topic. As PrincessK rightly points out... American football is a rugby derivative.

>>>[blog dz2502]... not wanting to get in trouble with the administrators... this is straight up picks. I don't want anyone to encourage me of encouraging gambling.*

>>>[blog jayR63]...I'm sure you will not have to worry about your welcome at St. Alphonso's. (I do think the poncho would be great on the monkey though.) If your Washington team keeps winning... you will be collecting the top prize each week (granted that you can pick the other games). I hope you have a place for that tweezers collection.

>>>Philosophy_N_Sex... welcome aboard. I hope you saw our little tribute below in Centennial Celebration: Favorite Blogs.

>>>Tom... well, I suppose we both have mulligans then. So far though, the way the rules are constructed... nobody would have won a prize. So everyone starts with a fresh slate. Of course, your host is not eligible for prizes.

The fun starts later tonight when I finally get time to post our weekly American football column. Stay tuned.

"I am shocked! Shocked! That there's gambling going on here!"

Just a quote from one of the great films of all time.

I have always had a sneaking suspicion that jayR was the margerine culprit. Thankfully that mystery has finally been solved.

Rocky, this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Well, it is good to see The Tattler's advertising manager back here, Amber. Perhaps we need to have a business-side meeting about all this food that's on your mind. Likely, there are ad sales awaiting us there.

By the way, I think [blog jayR63] may have spirited the margerine off to her dental floss ranch in Montana.

I'm confused so I left my pickings at both places
Hold on, here we go.
my choice of winners is denoted by use of CAPS

eagles v CHIEFS
the eagles fans are so nasty

BRONCOS v jags
jags aren't a real team

rams v GIANTS
well, they're the giants

chargers v PATS
well, they're the pats

vikings v FALCONS
i like the name

boys v RAIDERS
the boys are my mortal enemies

lions v BUCS
just so i can use my special pirate keyboard and type "aaarrrrr"

JETS v ravens
just to go against you and I like the way the coaches bone structure

seahawks v SKINS
They're my boys

PACKERS v panthers
panthers aren't a real team, either

bills v SAINTS
saints have the fire in the belly, a bigger reason to play than just to win a game

NINERS v cards
just the way the quarter landed

texas v BENGALS
did you make this up? There is no team known as "Texans", is there?

send that monkey-sized poncho to
