The initial week of the TMR Zoo Double Play and Nickent Grand Slam contest is in the books. If you selected the Boston Red Sox to score the most runs, and the San Francisco Giants to allow the least, you turned a TMR Zoo Double Play. Unfortunately, no entrant was able to pull one off this week.
15% of members that entered the contest selected the Red Sox to lead the league in runs scored, but only one entrant selected the Giants to allow the least… and he certainly didn’t pick the Sox. With no one picking the exact teams correctly, the first week’s prize rolls over and combined with week two’s. See below to see everything we currently have up for grabs. Voting is now open for the statistical week of 5/03/09 through 5/09/09.
To enter, 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 win the 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 was the Kelsyus Original Canopy Chair. See the prizing page for more details. Since nobody guessed the two teams correctly for the kick-off week, it rolled over into week 2… and combined with the G4 prize pack, which includes a copy of Beyond Race Magazine and a “Ninjas Rule” T-shirt. The longer we go without a weekly winner, the bigger the prize pack becomes. The Week three prize is Nickelback: Live at Sturgis DVD. It could be combined with the chair and G4 prize pack if no one has guesses the right teams THIS week. 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:
