Superbowl Contest



Hey! It's that time of year when people get football crazy. Football is not big on my radar, but I know it is for a lot of you. You can't blame me. I live in southeastern Michigan. Professional football means the Detroit Lions. Enough said.

Anyway - Let's have a little contest. Post your guess for the combined total score and the person that guesses it correctly, or comes the closest to it without going over will win our "Welcome Home" banner that we blogged about a few days ago.
If there are several of you, well, how about we'll draw for the winner and the others will receive "lovely parting gifts." Post your guess before 5pm Sunday eastern standard time. If you are anything like Polly and I - a sporting event on t.v. means lots of stitching and hooking time. Have fun.

OK, I messed up! The energy is crazy right now here in Phoenix for the Cardinals to win. I will guess that the combined final score will be 42. I hope I win the cute banner.

Becky said...

I'm guessing a combined score of 52. This is fun. Thanks for making a game out of the game. Yes, I'm looking forward to doing handwork while watching the game. Guess we're pulling for the Steelers. We have friends who are big Steeler fans so we are supporting them.

Would love to win the banner. My guess for the combined total score is 30. Just a guess since I'm not a football fan.

We are having friends, who have no TV, over to watch on our big screen. I'll probably hand quilt and wait for the ads. My guess for the combined score is 56. I would use the banner whenever my son comes home from college and for his best friend who is in Iraq in the Army.

There are no football police here are there? Hope it doesn't matter if my number isn't possible, lol.

I was a Detroiter (yeah, nuff said), now in wonderful Tucson...where we're really proud to have our Cardinals IN THE GAME!

51 is my magic number.

Wooley Hugs,

I'll guess 34. I'm rooting for the Steelers, but my husband is pushing for the Cardinals. We'll see tomorrow night! Thanks! Sarah

I think the combined total score for tomorrow's Super Bowl will be 42. My husband promised to let me know what the score is - not so much interested either, but I will get a lot of sewing done.

mamabug said...

It's going to be a great game even though they aren't my #1 teams they are teams that have both done a great job this year. We have the chicken wings, little weiners and pizza and beer ready!!!! Total combined score will be 55 points. Kathie k.bugbee@att.net

Jake said...

SheilaS said...

My quess (with a little help from my husband) is 45. I won't be watching the game-but I will be quilting!!!

Sue said...

I guess the combined score will be 49.

lovetostitch said...

Love games and I will be watching and stitching also!! I'm guessing the combined score will be 29 - both great teams and capable of higher scores but pretty well matched..........that's my guess, and I'm sticking to it - LOL!! Would love to win! Good luck everybody!!

Carol said...

I'm going to guess 62. Go Cardinals.

My guess is 37, although I think it may end up being much higher. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!!

Richelle said...

I am going to have to say 48.

Susan K. said...

Carrie P. said...

I am not a big football fan but I will play the game and say 46.

Gayle said...

My guess is totally in the dark since I'm not a fan of ANY sports, but I'm willing to give it a try.
23 is my number.

beeinstitches said...

I'll be hooking and maybe stitching too depending on how long the game goes! My guess is 39 for a combined score.
