Ooof, as a Brewer fan I'm happy they won.  Should never have bet against them.  Maybe I should bet against them the rest of the season...

ELIMINATION CHALLENGE- Footy Golf!

We're going to be smashing two sports together for this elimination challenge: Soccer and Golf.

First, select five golfers participating in the PGA Championship on Friday. You get one point for every stroke under par, and minus one point for every stroke over par on Friday.

Then, you must also select five soccer teams playing on Friday. You can select teams from any professional league, including scrimmages/friendlies, provided that they are playing on Friday. You get one point for every goal that team scores, and minus one point for every goal that they concede . Here's a link to all of the games that are eligible: http://www.espnfc.com/scores?date=20140808

Your goal is to get the points earned by the golfers and points earned by the soccer teams to equal each other. The player who is the furthest off will be eliminated. The two closest submissions will each receive TWO POWER PLAY CLUES.

Tiebreaker 1: Round Score of Rory McIlroy on Friday
Tiebreaker 2: Goals Scored by Cardiff City on Friday
Tiebreaker 3: Order of Submission

Submissions due Thursday at midnight (EST).

Yeah, I gave more weight to recent performances, but I still came up with 29 and hit it on the button.

I sent an site mail hoping for a probie fight shot

Just sent out the power play clues for the Kill Pick Challenge.

As a note, two people will be getting power play clues from the current elimination challenge.  Up until now, and including this elimination challenge, all clues sent by sitemail have been for the same power play.

This will change after this challenge ends.  Clues for a second power play may be introduced, and to help you guys out, all clues for the different power play will be preceded by: (2).  Other power play clues that may be given will have a (3), (4), etc.  That way, you don't have to figure out which clues go together.  You can thank me later!
