I’ve been meaning to get to a giveaway for some time now, but wrapping up my fantasy football leagues and trash-talking the ones in which I won the championship — it’s a requirement of any champion, you know — took more of my free hours than expected last week. With the fantasy season coming to a close (unless you’re playing playoff fantasy football with FF Librarian), I still have a few prizes to give out to you, my awesome readers.
And so, I’ve come up with an idea for a contest.
Those of you who stopped by every week, reading my articles and probably not laughing at all the witty banter I thought was entertaining, deserve to get something for sticking it out. So here’s what I’ve got:
- A bottle of your very own Buffalo Wild Wings sauce. I’ve chosen Mango Habanero because, as long as you can stand the burn, it’s the tastiest sauce at BWW. Trust me.
- 10 Yards: Fantasy Football on DVD. This movie documented our addicting habit, and I reviewed it earlier this season. Now, you can own it and get a chance to review it for yourself in the comments.
How do you get your hands on one of these lovely treats? Well, we’re going to play a game. Mind the bold.
To enter the contest, in the comments below this post, tell me which NFL player will have the best fantasy performance this weekend in the Wild Card games. All offensive players are eligible, including quarterbacks, but don’t go picking a team defense or an IDP player. For the detail-oriented, assume standard ESPN scoring will be used to judge who had the best game.
Please also tell me whether you would prefer to receive the bottle of wing sauce (Mango Habanero!) or the 10 Yards DVD. Just say “Mango Habanero!” or “10 Yards DVD!” in your comment. Yes, you can only win one. I know you want them both, but hey, we must share the wealth.
Example Submission: Chris Johnson. Mango Habanero!
(And no, those of you who copy my example answer will be awarded no points, will not pass go, and will not collect $200, especially since the Titans did not make the playoffs.)
I know our comments can be edited, which means you sneaky devils can change your answer, but any edits you make to your comment must be finalized by the time the Jets and Bengals kickoff at 4:30 p.m. Eastern on Saturday, Jan. 9 (my birthday, by the way).
If you edit your comment after 4:30 p.m. Eastern Saturday, it will be ineligible for the contest, and you shall feel the shame of cheating to win wing sauce or a DVD. That’s some kind of shame.
It also goes without saying that you can only enter once. But there, I said it anyway.
After the final Wild Card game on Sunday, I’ll review the comments and pick our two winners. The first commenter selected will get their preference on the prize, and the second selection will just have to live with the sloppy seconds.
If exactly two of you guess correctly, those two will be our winners, and my job will be easy. If more than two of you guess the best fantasy performance, I’ll select two from the pool of correct commenters at random. If less than two (or none) of you guess the right guy, I’ll move on to those who guessed the second-highest fantasy performance correctly and so on, choosing a comment at random if we have a pool of more than two to choose from until we have two winners.
Hopefully, we won’t have to go as far as the fifth, sixth, or seventh-best fantasy performance, right?
So get your comment in now. Feel free to go out on a limb. Just don’t do anything too crazy like guess Wes Welker (injured, as if you didn’t know). Best of luck to you all and thanks for reading Fantasy Football Fools this season.
As an added thank you to Buffalo Wild Wings for not only providing a bottle of sauce for this contest (and myself) but also including me in their All-Star Bloggers League this season, let me also make you aware of the promotion they’re running right now on gift cards…
Does your deadbeat fantasy football leaguemate still owe you $5? Rather than abuse his voicemail relentlessly, just use his next gift-giving occasion to buy a $25 gift card to Buffalo Wild Wings, which earns you a $5 gift card in the process.
That’ll show him.
Thanks again for reading, and best of luck in this week’s contest.
Disclosure: Buffalo Wild Wings provided the sauce as a sample, and I am not obligated to return it [http://cmp.ly/2]. I received a review copy of 10 Yards: Fantasy Football that I am not obligated to return and received permission to give it away after my review was complete [http://cmp.ly/1].
UPDATE: Congrats to our winners wingateg3 (10 Yards DVD) and ericdickens (Mango Habanero!)
