It’s September and that means it’s time to for that important question ….. Are you ready for some FOOTBALL! 

It’s time to get your tail-gating chili, spicy wings and chip-and-dip recipes out again!  We’re about to embark on the Road to Super Bowl LI. The ever-popular Football Pool is now in play for the 2016-2017 season.  I’m happy to be the host of the Football Pool this year, and we all hope to see you participating and posting your picks for the weekly NFL football games.  It’s a lot of fun!

HOW TO PLAY
Feel free to join in, even if you haven't played before.  It’s simple, and the only requirement to play is that you need to have some recipes posted.  Because players will make and review a recipe for the player who has the most correct picks for the week’s NFL football games. That winner could be YOU !

Each Tuesday during the regular season, playoffs, and Super Bowl, the schedule will be posted for that week’s NFL games.  Each week will have its own game thread.  To play that week, you’ll need to post which teams you pick to win for each game.  To make things easier, you can copy the week’s game schedule and then "bold" or "color" the team you pick to win.  Or you can delete the teams you don't pick to win, leaving only the name of the team you think will win.  Your weekly picks must be posted before the games start. (You may post your picks late, but you won't get credit for any games that have already started.)

The person who chooses the most winning teams for the week is the winner.  And after the Monday Night game is over, the winner will be announced, and everyone else who played that week will choose one of the winner's recipes to make and review (a recipe that you haven’t already reviewed).  Recipes must be made and reviewed within two weeks. 

You will also need to predict and post the Monday night game’s total game points (the combined total scores from each team). In the event of a tie, the tie-breaker scores will be used to determine that week's winenr.  So the player with the tie-breaker number that’s closest to the total game points, without going over, will be the winner for that week!  Tie-breaker numbers can be used only once each week, so choose your tie-breaker number early!

Players with any outstanding tags (recipes not reviewed) from prior years cannot participate this (2016) season until completing all outstanding reviews from Football Pools from prior years.

You do not have to play every week, feel free to join in whenever you would like to play.  

And just a reminder … there will be something new in the game schedules this year.  The Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles starting with the 2016 season.

Good luck everyone, and let the games begin!

Ok, I'm going w/the Jets tonite. I'm just glad to be "going with" anyone at all since I've had internet issues most of today & wondered if I'd get here in time to get my pick noted. image
