CONTEST # 2 - UPDATE

This is exciting, I've added up the scores based on all the questions besides the #3 question which was which rookie will be signed next.

There is a leader, and a close pack behind this leader but due to question #3 being worth 6 points, any of 7 entrants have a shot at taking the top prize.

Quite a few of the answers were either hilarious or disappointing. I'll quote some of the best later when we have the results, but I thought I'd let you know that I will be able to announce a winner pretty much immediately upon news of a rookie-signing.

I'll leave you with this teaser...there was a possible 42 points to be scored here. The difference between the current leader and the current 'Mr Irrelevant' is 32 points.

  1. So could you at least tell us/me who the picture was?  I can't remember with any certainty who I picked.

  2. I was going to list the answers once we know all of them.  Between your paranoia and your impatience you remind me of my wife ;)

  3. I hope she doesn't read that...d'oh!

  4. Sorry.  It was the most annoying of all the questions.  I don't do well with the names/faces of people I actually know, or should know, so a stranger is just beyond.  Maybe because I'm used to looking at photo's with no faces on them!  lol

  5. maybe you should try looking at their faces instead of their T*ts!

    I'm not good with faces either, especially when they are grimacing like that to clear a high-jump bar. I pasted it into powerpoint and rotated it and pasted players mugshots next to it to check and I still wasn't confident! My guess was Omar's model friend Brandon London, but I'm probably way off?

  7. LOL, I flipped the screen upside down on the tablet to get a better perspective.
     
    And to respond to you tinshaker, they intentionally don't have faces!  And I HAVE to look at them.

  8. "don't have faces!  And I HAVE to look at them."
     
    that's what I said to my wife, but she still doesn't get it...

  9. Check out this picture and see if you think it's him? Tin's a spoilsport and won't spill the beans.

    I'm guessing it's a picture from college - do U Massachusetts wear that burgundy sort of colour do you know?
     
    PS If your clients don't have faces, I would've thought they'd want a face transplant before they got a boob job? lol

  10. Well I kind of thought the high-jump would provide a clue to most people.  He's also wearing a uniform.  He also has a certain physique.  Also you can usually narrow it down by deducing who it ISN't based on what players faces you ARE familiar with.
     
    I knew it would be challenging but didn't think it would be so hard for everyone.  3 people got it right, but I got some entertaining wrong answers like Kendall Langford all 290lbs of him) and Brian Hartline (who is white).
     
    Speaking of Hartline, he was a wrong answer several times, including the wildcat question.  Don't you guys know that Ohio State are the Buck-Eyes?

    ReplyDelete
  11. even if you thought that OSU were the Wildcats, wouldn't that make Ginn a wildcat too?

    ReplyDelete
  12. oh, and herdfan, you were right, I did try to trick you guys.  There were actually TWO trick questions.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hoping you are wrong, since if you are right, I am wrong.  I think I went with one of the new guys, but from memory I can't tell you my guess.

  14. you guessed Brennan Marion ;)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well was the one I thought was a trick question, one of the trick questions?

    ReplyDelete
  16. B*gger. It was Patrick Turner. I thought at 6' 5" it would be him, but the face seemed to match London's better and he was 6' 4". Oh well. I didn't want to get a score over 50% anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Why can't you publish the answers now and let the top seven know who are still in it (makes the next signing more interesting then) and put the rest of us poor schmucks out of our misery! lol

    ReplyDelete
  18. And would that be correct?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think you and I are the only ones interested at this point.  lol
     
    Seriously, is the SS broken today?  I was checking back every so often for the unfiltered interview with CP, but gave up.  Sigh.
     
    Oh and tinshaker, I saw you liked my comment there last evening!  :-D
    Hmm.  Maybe Omar saw it too, and that is why no CP interview.

    ReplyDelete
  20. It's just the one's who have no chance of winning then? lol
     
    I saw you were chomping at the bit for the CP unfiltered - I think I read in one blog there were problems getting it loaded up (or did I just dream that?)

    ReplyDelete
  21. What would be the fun in that?
     
    lol

    ReplyDelete
  22. for the record I think you are both in the top 7.

    If the next one is going to be harder, I'm putting the white flag up now! ;)

    I demand a recount! That can't be right? lol

  25. Well, I am at a extreme disadvantage already, being a newbie and a girl at that.  And here is one to make it even better.  You will be ROFLOL.  The high school I went to was so small we didn't even have football!  lol
     
    And they FINALLY put up the CP video.  Guess who got the bar fight question correct?

    ReplyDelete
  26. C'mon now. I suck with face too. But Tin is right. Does the fact that the guy is doing a high jump really make it obvious only to me? If I am right, the guy in the picture is the answer to more than one question as well. Lets just say if i could jump over 7 ft. than i would be getting my picture taken doing a high jump as well.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I considered that, but I was going under the theory that he wouldn't have the same player be the answer to more than one question. 

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey I think I gave you Hartline, maybe ?  He's white ? You don't see many skill position players being white !!  They are more or less the grunt guys, for example look at the Dolphins O-line. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I did not have the same player as an answer twice, did you ever consider you got the OTHER question wrong?  lol

    ReplyDelete
  30. No.  Then I suppose that was the other trick question.

    ReplyDelete
  31. here ya go, and btw Vernon Carey, Donald Thomas, Ike Ndukwe, Brandon Frye, and SirVincent Rogers (doubt he'll make the team but I have to mention his name as much as possible, heh) are all non-white.

  32. forgot the link:

  33. I considered it, but at least now i know i got one of them right lol. Am I in the top 7?

    ReplyDelete
  34. herdfan, you got your Pennington video.  Did you pick Jake Long?  seemed pretty obvious to me.  I had asked Omar a couple of weeks ago what his NEW signature question was going to be but he didn't respond and I guess he is sticking with the old one for now.  Should be really interesting when he accidentally asks that question of someone he already asked.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That depends on what your e-mail is or if you signed off as finsfan24...

    ReplyDelete
  36. I saw it. I mentioned something in an earlier post about it here.  Didn't post a comment on the SS.  I guess I could have done the FIRST! thing, but I really think that is just stupid. 
     
    I think Omar indicated in the video that was the question he asked everyone last year, but since he didn't get to do one then, he was aking it now.  Of course I used a lot more words to say it though!

    I hadn't even heard of American football at high school!
     
    You nailed the Jake Long bar fight question!

    Tin, Herdfan nailed it. I thought O shaved his face fungus off?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yeah, but you're not a girl.  Are you?  :-D

    ReplyDelete
  40. Not yet!?!?!? ;)

  41. herdfan, can you quit holding back the female gender and get back to the boob jobs? ;)

  42. nah,  it was gatorplaya50@aol.com

  43. well, unfortunately your entry was past the dead-line, which was yesterday.  I did score it anyway and you aren't in the top 7 but you could be if you get #3 right and a few of the top 7 get it wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Unfortunately you didn't get your entry in before the deadline (tuesday 4pm pacific) but I scored it anyway and you didn't fall in the top 7, but you did get the photo question right ;)
