Football season is officially here with the season opener played by the Colts and the Saints going on as I write this. This means that is time for Keith and I to start the 2nd annual Bowers Bowl! We are very excited in this house for football season to begin. The Bowers bowl consists of me and Keith each picking our wins for all of the games each weekend. The person who gets the most correct after all the weekends games have been played (with the monday night game score as tiebreaker just in case) wins a small prize. Last year was the first year we did this so the prizes were all little things like a bag of candy or no doing dishes for a few days, with no over all winner for the season (it would've been me!). This year we have decided to take it up a notch, so to speak.
Each week we are putting $10 into a jar, this is going to go to the person at the end of the season with the most correct picks over all. We are also doing small weekly prizes like chores and things so that there is some instant gratification for the weeks winner. I am very excited by this "grand prize" of sorts for the end of the season. It will end up being $200 or so. That is a LOT of money, but we figure if we take it out each week it won't be such a huge dent all at once to the pocket book! So I will add a little score keeper to the side bar and we can all keep track of who is going to walk away with the winnings. This should make football very interesting, considering that I am a VERY competitive person (and I really want a KitchenAid mixer!)
P.S. GO COWBOYS!!!
