With all due respect to ESPN’s John Buccigross (@buccigross on twitter), I hate his playoff overtime challenge. Don’t get me wrong; I LOVE the idea, I just hate the fact that people get to predict 2 players (one from each team) who will score the overtime-game winner. A truly successful prediction would involve picking 1 player from the team that you feel will actually win the OT. Of course, every time a playoff game goes to overtime, you can always count on me complaining about this via twitter. That will not happen anymore.
Inspired by this tweet, I am introducing the new 1 player #KraksOTChallenge … the next twitter phenomenon!
The winner of the #KraksOTChallenge will receive a Harrow Sports prize from me, that will ship the next business day.
Here are the rules:
- Use your twitter account to predict 1 player who will score the OT winner
- You must use the hashtag #KraksOTChallenge to be eligible to win
- Picks are due before the OT period starts
- Multiple entries will disqualify you, unless you mention you are changing your pick (see last rule)
- New participants can enter if the game goes to multiple OTs, as long as the prediction is made during an OT intermission
- Picks can be changed during the intermission of any additional OT
**If there is a tie between 3 people or less, I will tweet out a trivia question about the game. Whoever responds first with the correct answer will win the prize.
**If the tie is between 4 people or more, a random draw will be used to determine the winner.
The winner of the #KraksOTChallenge will get a direct message from me via twitter. I will include links to 2 prize options. The contest winner will be required to message me which prize they want, any size/color specifications and their shipping address.
