At least you'll have a shot at winning the grand prize. You better know your stuff, though.
Today we launched our first big game, with prizes and everything! We hope all of you out there in the Nation will play the FanNation Bowl Challenge. It's super easy to play – you just pick the winner for each of nine college bowl games. Then predict the points and total yards in the BCS Championship Game as a tiebreaker and you're good to go.
If your picks are perfect – and I have a feeling you'll have to be right on the money to win – you'll have a chance to take home the grand prize package: an Xbox 360 and a copy of Madden 07. And the second through fifth place winners will get a $100 Best Buy gift card.
Don't forget to get all your FanNation group members to play, too, and maybe invite those pals who haven't joined the Nation yet. You know, all those folks you've been meaning to introduce the site to. You could even set up a new group for the game, and see who wins bragging rights to superior college football knowledge. You'll be able to see the leaderboard on your group page, and keep tabs on how everyone stacks up.
Not sure you have the deep pigskin knowledge needed to make good picks? Haven't studied up on all the offensive and defensive strengths of each team? Haven't memorized their records and point differentials for each game? Not to worry. You know how we love to make things easy. So we provide expert analysis, breaking down each team in all nine games, and how they match up.
So there you go, plenty of reasons, and no excuses. Go play the Bowl Challenge and watch the games. Who knows, you might even win something.
