By now, most of you probably know that SB Nation has its own fantasy football game, Pick 6. Well, now I am going to tie a little incentive to joining the game - and doing it on the Phinsider leaderboard.
SB Nation Pick 6 Football (click that link to play!) is a fantasy game that allows you to play the matchups and compete against a large group of people across your real life, The Phinsider and the SB Nation network. When you sign up for your team, you will be given the opportunity to select The Phinsider as your home blog, competing against all of us from the site.
There is no draft - instead, you are given a salary cap of $120 and have to fill out a lineup of six players each week: Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Kicker, and a Wild Card slot that is comprised of all positions other than QB.
It's a simple, fun game that you only need to play once a week. You will compete on a blog leaderboard against fellow fans! There are awesome badges to win for various accomplishments in the game, and connecting Pick 6 to Facebook will make it easy to showcase your lineup and awards to your friends.
Now, for what you really care about - the sweepstakes. Everyone who is signed up on the Phinsider leaderboard by the start of the New York Giants at Carolina Panthers Week 3 Thursday Night Football game (8:20pm ET on Thursday, September 20, 2012) will be eligible to win a Bob Giese autographed copy of his book "Perfection: The Inside Story of the 1972 Miami Dolphins."
That's right, all you have to do is sign up for Pick 6 under the Phinsider. If you are already signed up and playing, you are already entered. If you signed up under another blog, shame on you - but if you send an email to support at sbnation.com, they should be able to transfer your account over to our leaderboard. If you would like to opt out of the drawing, simply send me an email to let me know that.
Next Thursday night, I will pull everyone who is on the Phinsider leaderboard and randomly draw one winner. I will then announce the winner on the site and email them. If I am unable to make contact after five business days, I will move on to an alternate winner.
