Contest Time!

EDIT: CONTEST CLOSED - Thanks for entering.


It's the playoffs baby! And that means a Waxaholic Contest!
The rules are simple. I make them up, and they're liable to change at any time.

All you have to do is pick the winners of the NFL playoffs up to and including the Super Bowl. Or be the closest to the actual results, judged unilaterally by me. No whining. There's no whining in football. I'm looking at you Tom Brady.
Also, pick the total points score in the Big Game. Just in case I make up some tie breaking rule later on.

The matchups are (like you don't already know)

NFC

#3 Dallas Cowboys
#6 Philadelphia Eagles

#4 Arizona Cardinals
#5 Green Bay Packers

The highest seeded winning team will then go to #2 Minnesota Vikings
The lowest seeded winning team will then go to #1 New Orleans Saints

The winners of those two games will then play each other for the right to go to the Super Bowl.
Are you following me camera guy?

AFC

#3 New England Patriots
#6 Baltimore Ravens

#4 Cincinnati Bengals
#5 New York Jets

The highest seeded winning team will go to play #2 San Diego Chargers
The lowest seeded winning team will go to play #1 Indianapolis Colts

The winners of those two games will then play each other for the right to lose to Dallas in the Super Bowl, I mean, go against the NFC champion in the Super Bowl.

So for an example of an answer.... reader Vince could say

Dallas over Philly
Arizona over Green Bay
Dallas over Minnesota
Arizona over New Orleans
Dallas over Arizona

Baltimore over New England
Jets over Cincy
Jets over San Diego
Indy over Baltimore
Indy over Jets

Dallas over Indy
Total Points 41

easy? right?

Get to it, guesses are due in by Friday, January 8, 2010 at 9:00pm MST

And if you're not following this blog already, what are you waiting for? You're gonna love my nuts.

PRIZES:

I'll make a list of them at a later date. They're gonna be spectacularly awesome. Winner gets a prize, a random entry will get a prize, and I'll maybe even give out a booby prize for the entrant who least knows whatthe hell they are doing. ('Scratcher and Troll are front runners for that one already)
Where else can you get a contest like this? They're gonna charge you a dollar for this at the ice cream store.

Good luck!
