Football Survival Pool 2012
« on: September 01, 2012, 09:18:11 AM »
I have created a NFL Survival pool for us again this year.

For those of you not familiar with the concept, here's how it works. Each week you pick  what team will be the winner of an individual game.  If you get it right, you live to play again the next week, if you get it wrong, you're eliminated from the pool.

It sounds easy, but it's not.  Here's the catch, if you pick a particular team to win, you cannot pick that team again in future weeks.   So you can't just go choose the Packers each week.

I've set up our pool on Yahoo sports.  Here's the info to join.  I only ask that you make your "set" name be your Daddyplace user name so that we can keep track of who's who.

Link to join:  http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/survival

Click the "Sign Up" button and choose to "Join an Existing Group", then "Join a Private Group". Then, when prompted, enter the following information...

Group ID#: 23056
Password: 2012Dads


REALLY IMPORTANT NOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
******** Please use your Daddyplace user name as you "Set Name".  This is it only way we can keep track of who's who on the yahoo site.

That sucks! Sorry Fro. It was bound to happen anyway though. Remember, there can be only one.

The only time you can be associated with the phrase "there can be only one" is when you're locked in the bathroom with your wife outside wondering why your shower is taking so long

With Jessie forgetting to put a pick in on week #2, Ramblin' Dad is our first Survivor winner. Congrats John!!!!! 


I'm going to go and reset this so we can start again in week #3.

If only we had things to remind us like a smart phone or PDA.  :)      Just messing with you Jessie.  I have forgot too when I played last year.
