Pickem League
Time to start the annual Football Foodie Pick’em Leagues!

Will this year finally be end of the Rob in Wisconsin,  Pretty Girls and Waffles, Studley and Catherine’s domination? Or Jerkwheat? Or anyone else who manages to do better than Vega?

Never been a part of Football Foodie Pick’em? The deets:

The pools!

Straight-up pick’em, no spread or confidence points and all games will count. As always, smack talk is not only allowed, it’s encouraged.

I know this is a bit of a rush for the CFB league, but you have until Friday night for the three games played then and until Saturday for the rest of the Week 1 slate since we’re using the standard “Games Yahoo Editors Find Interesting” setting.  Not entirely sure what the “games Yahoo editors find interesting” metric consists of, because they often to pick some pretty boring games.

Yahoo’s NFL pick’em leagues allow you to run the pool through the playoffs, which is a right swell development in my book. Everyone seemed to have fun picking through the Super Bowl a couple of years ago and then again last season, so we’re going to do it again this year. (Also I’m hoping that the pool will come right down to the wire and the Super Bowl picks will determine the winner. Extra tension for all!)

The prizes!

Previous winners have won $50 Amazon gift cards or chef’s coats featuring their favorite teams. I’d like to say I’ve got a better idea for this year’s prizes, but as of this moment I don’t so let’s say those are the prizes and if something cooler comes up, I’ll let everyone know.

The Football Foodies!

The reason why we are all here. Recipes will start going up in about a week to kick off seventh (!!!) season of the Football Foodie. Holy crap, that’s a lot of recipes!
