GMYH Bowl Challenge

It's the most wonderful time of the year* -- college bowl season. Now that the BCS bowls have been set, and all of the other bowls have fallen into place, I figured it's high time for a bowl pick 'em league. Thus, I have set one up on Yahoo Sports, and I would be honored if you would join in the fun. It's free, and the winner will receive a valuable prize.**

How to Play
This page explains how to play. It's quite simple. You pick which team you think is going to win each bowl game. Then you assign a confidence point value between 1 and 34 to each game. Thus, you will assign 34 to the bowl pick you are most confident about, and 1 point to the bowl you are least confident about, and everything in between. The person with the most points at the end of the bowl season will (1) win his or her choice of any item under $25 from the GMYH Café Press Store and (2) get a shout-out on GMYH for his or her prescience. Does it get any better than that?!***

The first bowl is the Eaglebank Bowl on Saturday December 20 at 11 a.m. EST, and the last bowl is the BCS Championship game on Thursday January 8 at 8 p.m. EST.

How to Join

If that doesn't work, go to the Yahoo College Bowl Pick 'Em home page, and click on the "join group" button, which will then lead you to another page on which you will click "join group," after which you will have to sign in using your Yahoo ID, after which you will be prompted to enter the Group ID and password below in order to join the group.
