With the NFL and NCAA football seasons starting just around the corner, it's time to get ready for the Fall 2009 Contests. Like last year, we're holding a pick'em contest for both leagues over on Yahoo. To play, use the links below and click the “Join Group” button. From there, enter the following info: (( There's a 50 person limit to each group, so I'll just keep making more groups as they fill up. Clearly, you should only join one group per league! Cheaters will be deleted! ))

Both leagues will be using the spread and will drop your lowest week's score. So if you forget to make your picks once or happen to have an especially bad week, you can still possibly win! If you're still not sure how to play, check out Goob's Guide to Gambling that I wrote last year.
Oh yeah, prizes! The following applies for both the college and pro leagues, so if you play in both, you double your chances of winning!
1st place: $50 giftcard to your store of choice.
2nd place: $25 giftcard to your store of choice.
Random winner (( Must participate in all weeks in order to be eligible for the random winner prize )) : $25 giftcard to your store of choice.
And if you feel so inclined, come talk some smack with us on the forums! (( Is anybody even reading this fine print? ))
