Pick NFL games against me and LaVar
For the past couple years, I've picked NFL games for our corporate cousins at Express. This was a great way to display my superior NFL handicapping skills, but it offered no way for you to earn free pizza.
So this year, in addition to picking weekly games for our corporate cousins at Express, I will be picking every single NFL game on this site. So will LaVar Arrington. So will Tracee Hamilton. Because we don't even acknowledge the possibility of illegal gambling, we will be picking these games straight-up, without point spreads. We'll also be doing the weekly Survivor Pool thing. And so, dear readers, will you.
Go to washingtonpost.com/pro-picks. If you didn't play last year or participate in The Post's college basketball pick 'em game, you'll need to register. Sorry. But it'll be fun.
As the boss points out, "You can create private groups to play against your friends, see how you did against our "experts" (Steinberg, LaVar and Hamilton) or just play for fun and the chance to win some decent prizes. The winner each week (if you're an 18-or-older Metro-D.C. resident) wins a couple of Papa John's pizzas and the grand prize (1) and survivor game (1) winners win a Madden 2011 game and midweek sports package at Wintergreen Resort for four people for three days and two nights. And if you don't enter, we'll cut off one (1) of Steinberg's fingers."
Here's the link to the FAQ for any other questions you might have. We wise experts are not eligible for prizes, but we will happily take advantage of this opportunity to display our superior wisdom and to spit on your weak soy-based sauce.
Also, not great timing here, but I'm not writing anything else in this spot until Sunday. Religious and family responsibilities. I'm sure you'll find other ways to occupy yourself. Beat your head with a burgundy and gold sledgehammer or something. Until then.
