Happy Thanksgiving Contest

TheKrakenTheKraken Posts: 2,234 ✭✭✭✭✭

Another year coming to an end with this great community. So let's have yet another contest.

Good traders list only; rules are simple. Guess the total combined points that will be scored on Thanksgiving in the NFL games.

Tiebreaker - guess what time we slice the turkey.

Also, your guess will only count if you say something that you are thankful for.

    I'm thankful for the contest!

    Now this is not the end of the cigar. It is not even the beginning of the end of the cigar. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning of the cigar.

    I forgot what I was thankful for...

    I am thankful for my wife who stands by my side, my children who are such smart **** that they keep me humble, a career that I enjoy, and my health, which is at the best point so far in my life.

    Some good guesses so far, but remember you have to say something you are thankful for or your entry doesn't count.

    Will take entries until first kickoff

  • TheKrakenTheKraken Posts: 2,234 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Only about 24 hours to enter.

    Grateful to be alive and not wrapped up in the angst that is poisoning most of humanity.

    Contest closed, thanks for playing! Will call winner tonight or tomorrow. Hope everyone enjoys the day!

    LOL thanks edward. I won it last year by picking the average number of points scored in an NFL game times three. I did the same thing this year. 46.2 * 3 = my guess. Math. Get some.

    Don't look ↑
  • VisionVision Posts: 7,737 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @silvermouse good guess my friend. Could be close

  • VegasFrankVegasFrank Posts: 16,443 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Whew! That was close!

    Awesome contest! One more touchdown! Kept watching interesting.

  • TheKrakenTheKraken Posts: 2,234 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Thanks for playing all, sad day for all as the Cowboys remembered they are, in fact, the Cowboys and have been letting people down for 3 decades now.

    @Wylaff channeling his inner Bilbo, greatness! Total points scored yesterday was 136, so that makes @d_blades the winner with a guess of 134, congratulations Dave! Good guesses by a number of folks. No tiebreakers needed, but we cut the turkey at 11:48 AM EST.

    Thanks for playing all, hope everyone had a great day! And thanks for sharing what you are thankful for!

    Dave, would you please pm me your address? I'll plan to get out early next week.
