With the first week of the 2009 Major League Baseball season now in the books, it’s time for the Zoo to launch it’s second site-featured sports competition… The TMR Zoo Double Play.
Similarly to our main football feature “Beat the House”, the Double Play gives our readers an opportunity to prove they know their sports… or are just extremely lucky when it comes to making picks. Whichever is the case, once you enter you have a decent shot at winning some great prizes.
Entering the Double Play couldn’t be easier. Essentially, all you need to do is pick two Major League Baseball teams. Using the drop down boxes on the entry page, pick the professional team you think will score the most runs in the upcoming week, then pick the team that will give up the least amount of runs. After you’ve selected your teams, guess the actual number of runs for each category in the fields provided. To help you out, these are the top teams in baseball in week 1:
Most Runs Scored:
Toronto Blue Jays: 46
Detroit Tigers: 41
Colorado Rockies: 39
Least Runs Allowed:
Chicago White Sox: 19
Kansas City Royals: 19
San Diego Padres: 21
To win the week 1 prize, you must correctly identify the two teams. The scores you entered will be used to break any ties in the Double Play. The prize for week 1 is the Kelsyus Original Canopy Chair. See the prizing page for more details. If nobody guesses the two teams correctly, then no one wins the prize and it rolls over into week 2… and combined with another prize. The longer we go without a weekly winner, the bigger the prize pack becomes. See below for a pic of a hot chick in the canopy chair: (hot chick not included)
Once you enter the Double Play, you are automatically entered into the Nickent Golf Grand Slam. If you can correctly pick the two teams as mentioned above, AS WELL as the exact runs scored and allowed, you have hit the Nickent Golf Grand Slam and win a full set of Nickent Golf Clubs in a stand bag. The set includes a 4DX Evolver driver, a 4DX Fairway, 4DX CB Irons (includes 2 hybrids), two
ARC Wedges and one Pipe Putter. See below:
Remember, you need to be a member of the TMR Zoo to enter the Double Play and Grand Slam. Don’t despair, membership is completely free with no obligation, and registration is as easy as creating a username in the Forums. We’ll even remind you each week when the entry deadline approaches. Don’t worry, we won’t use your email for anything other than sending you a once-weekly reminder.
