HAPPY NEW YEAR.
This is our first Fanatics contest testing the analytical and prognostication skills of our Fanatics family. The prize is an autographed copy of New York Times Bestseller The Greatest Moments In Sports by Len Berman. Anyone can enter, but in order to be a winner you must register with Knicks Fanatics or Bloguin.
The contest winner will be first person, according to these rules, who can guess the Knicks’ winning record for the ten games beginning January 1, 2010 against the Atlanta Hawks to January 22, against the Lakers and come closest to the total point differential during those ten games.
For example, your guess might be that the Knicks will go 10-0 and the difference between the Knicks’ points scored and the opponents’ points scored during those ten games will be 100. Unlikely?
To make it even more interesting, every entrant will have two opportunities to predict the win-loss record and point differential. However, the winner will be the first one to guess it on the first guess or the first one to guess on their second guess. No one’s second guess can beat anyone’s first guess. And each guess must be made in a separate comment. Any comment that includes two guesses will be disqualified.
All predictions must be posted by mid-night January 1, 2010 est.
You can find the ten games referred to on the Knicks Game Schedule on the right sidebar or go to the Knicks schedule on this website.
The winner will receive a free autographed copy of Len Berman’s excellent book, The Greatest Moments In Sports which was written for a young audience but would be loved by anyone who loves sports and would love to recapture some of the most exciting events in sports history. The book includes an exciting audio CD of the actual broadcast of some of the greatest moments. For more about the book, you can listen to our radio interview of Len Berman.
Any Fanatic anywhere around the world can win and FREE means FREE. I will pay the postage to send the book to anyone anywhere in the world.
The winner will be announced on this website on January 23rd. The winner will also be notified by e-mail, so include your correct e-mail address to allow us to contact you.
