Father vs. Son 2012 Bowl Challenge

I remember playing basketball in the front yard with my father, every night during the summers challenging him to competitive games of one-on-one. Every time he would win, even if by the slimmest of margins, and instead of holding my head I was determined to overthrow his reign as basketball king.

The day I finally defeated my father was one I will never forget. From that day on, every game we watched, played, or even debated on, ended up being a highly competitive affair.

This year is no different. I am very excited to introduce to all of you the very first Pick Challenge between my father and I. And because we are both men of multiple interests and talents, picking outside the world of sports is a very real opportunity.

Need some predictions of next year’s Grammy’s? We might just be the source you are looking for. So feel free to give us some suggestions on future challenges, and let the fun begin.

Starting today, the college football bowl season kicks off in New Mexico. My father and I have selected winners to all 35 bowl games in sequential order. The winner’s grand prize is yet to be determined and is also up for suggestions as well. I am thinking something prestigious and elaborate, but that is just my cockiness rearing its head a bit. Enjoy the picks, and whether you follow them or not and use them in your company challenge, I hope this is the first of many successful challenges.

(I’m obligated to inform you that if I do in fact lose the challenge, this post may suddenly be deleted for some very weird reason. It wasn’t me though, I promise.)


1 Point For Every Non-BCS Game

2 Points For Every BCS Game (Non-Title Game)

5 Points For BCS National Championship Game

If there is a tie after every game, the closest predicted score in the N.C game determines the winner.

Let the fun begin.
