This might merit its own thread in Other Contests someday, but I'll put it here for now. And I'm trying to make it sound as un-spammy as possible, to little avail...

All of you should play ESPN's Streak for the Cash! http://www.espn.com/streak . It's super fun, and involves tennis occasionally as well as a multitude of other sports.

To play, you pick from a list of contests around the world. You pick one result at a time, trying to build up a streak of correct guesses. If you reach 27, you get a million dollars! Who doesn't love that?

They have lots of soccer, basketball, hockey, tennis, etc. from around the world. Right now my streak of four wins is on the line as I picked SC Freiburg (Tinamarie's hometown, I believe) to beat some other German team. They also have had Dutch Eredivisie soccer on their recently, for our Dutch contingent, as well as world cup qualifying and such.

If people are interested, I can set up a TAT subgroup there.

Let me know if you have any questions!

the contest really sounds like a lot of fun, salmon.Thanks! Right now I am still studying for my exam tomorrow (aaaaaaaaaaaaah), but I will definitly look into it tomorrow.
:
Good luck for your Freiburg pick tonight! I know they are ranked much higher then Rostock, but all of Rostocks wins came at home, while Freiburg has only won 4 of their 10 away matches... Does your streak break if there is a tie?

If there's a tie it's a "push," and my streak stays alive.

And your breakdown of Rostock's home advantage is making me nervous :lipsrsealed::p.

sorry:o Freiburg really shouldnt lose this match.- I'd predict a tie, so if that doesnt hurt your streak, you should be fine :)

But it doesn't increase does it?

Seems it'd be easy to make it end with a tie.

I remembered I already have an ESPN account so I started playing. Going with 6 goals or over in the Atl-LA NHL game tonight. (anaheim-atlanta was 8-4 last night.)

Nice that you don't have to play every day - that'd be another easy cop out!

Yup! And you can also play more than once in a day, if you say take an early game then a late one.

I'm gonna make the same pick you did after Freiburg ends.

Freiburg got the lead back :D

and they won 3:1!:)

(yeah, actually that smile is totally fake. Freiburg is in direct contention with Kaiserslautern (:sweetheart:) for one of three top spots for promotion to the first league, and while I like living in Freiburg and it is pretty and all, there is only one home when it comes to soccer. Plus, Freiburg has the university, the tourist attractions, the Black Forest.... Kaiserslautern/Palatinate only has soccer and wine, so we need this more;)

Good ol high scoring California hockey! Sticking in hockey, I'm going with the Sabres over the Leafs today. I was under the impression that the game would force you to make picks in weird sports, but so far I've stuck with the NHL.

My streak ended at 2. I picked a soccer game. Shoulda stuck with what I knew (but 88% of people were picking it!) It wound up a draw, but I needed a win this time.

out of curiosity which game?

I picked the same one! :mad:

Aston Villa vs. CSKA Moscow, we both picked Aston Villa to win.

Luke Harangody is doing good things for me tonight though :D.

It was the sensible pick. Akinfeev (CSKA's keeper) pulled off some incredible saves to keep it tied. Rotten luck for you sorry :(

Now my losing streak is two..16-9 Virgina Tech lost at 9-13 Virginia. Maybe I should only pick hockey!

02-18-2009, 11:41 PM
I'm back up at two, winning on Luke Harangody and 6 goals in the LAK-ANA game.

And tomorrow there's tennis to pick from! And a sort of obscure match (Sela-Serra) at that!

ptmcmahon
02-19-2009, 07:40 AM
Good idea of the subthread, was thinking that myself. I picked golf already...don't think I'll make it in time to get to the tennis match. I'm not 95% sure Serra will win like the public does though!

You can make groups?

Togtdyalttai
02-19-2009, 08:57 AM
I thought that Sela's probably got his mind on Dubai, so I went with the crowd and took Serra.

I have Mike Weir to do better than struggling Phil Mickelson right now. Weir leading by one shot so far.

ptmcmahon
02-19-2009, 10:58 AM
And now Lefty is leading the enitre tourney...might make my streak 3 now! UGH!

Actually Mike Weir is also a lefty, so I should clarify and say Mickelson's leading.

oohsalmon
02-19-2009, 11:57 AM
I'm going with Sela!

And I'll get going on figuring out a group formation.

Come on Sela! Doin' good so far!

It's made up of the first three letters of each of my names. "tho" is from my middle name...Thor.

LOL no but I really should change it to Thor, don't you think?

I'm putting my streak of five on the line with Geoff Ogilvy tomorrow, to shoot better than Ernie Els. Ogilvy beat Els by three today, so I think it should be okay.

And then I am definitely taking Orlando Magic to beat Charlotte. NO idea why that's a pickable match, it should be a blowout.

Golf is probably the hardest of all to predict if you are doing it by round. At least 50% of the time it seems like a good day is followed by a bad day - almost 100% if it's a super low round like 61, 62, etc.

Yes, it used to be 25 until a guy final won it when Steelers beat Dallas. Several others had come very close at 24 but kept missing number 25. The new one started in January and it is now 27.

Wow...they have the Scotties as a choice! I didn't think anyone outside of Canada knew about that!

I know nothing about the Ontario team, so I can't see why they're being picked by 93% of people. I'm going with the "underdog" Newfs. My pick only changed it 0.1% so there must be over 500 people picking that game at least.

Wonder if they'll have matches to pick from the whole week? (it starts tomorrow)

Neither team is expected to contend. I'd go with NB, but really it's a toss-up I'd say. Pick at your own risk.

It can vary since a team can concede early but normally about 2-3 hours. I think the reporting is slow due to the website not working.

And it can be more than 3 hours quite commonly as well. Watched a draw tonight and was definitely at least over 3:30, but it did go to an extra end. I lost with my NL pick, and hope no one took my advice for the other game. Time to go with a 99% selected bowling team I know nothing of!

I think people (myself included) get tripped up by the mandate the bandwagons seem to give. If a team has, say, 95% of the picks, I often conflate with them having a 95% chance of winning, whereas all it really means is that 95% of people are willing to risk it on the team's actual 55% chance of winning...

Glenn Howard vs. Saskatchewen (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kE5QzOprns)

In the round robin, Glenn Howard made one of the best shots ever (Best I've ever seen.) Facing two and down two with the hammer on last rock in the 10th. I had been watching the game and questioned what Saskatchewan did actually - their 2nd last rock should've been in the middle and at the top IMO.

In case none of us win 27 times in a row.

Consolation Prize ($10k): In the event that a streak of 27 is NOT reached during the Challenge Period, the entry with the longest historic streak at the end of the Challenge Period will be awarded the Consolation Prize. Historic streaks are considered the longest streak accumulated by an entry during the Challenge Period, whether they are active or not. In the event there are two (2) or more entries tied with the same historic streak length (e.g., streak of 23) the winner will be determined by the following tiebreakers in the indicated order:

1. Entry with the higher overall winning percentage.

2. Entry with more total wins over the Challenge Period.

3. Random Drawing

Not as much of a sure thing, but I'm going to ride the Philly wave and take Villanova for the early game today--the rest of the day looks pretty tough.

Blue Jackets could be a good pick as well...

I hope people listened to me! :cheesy:

Just as I get a nice streak of 5 cooking, they announce that all the streaks will be reset to zero on April 1. :(

But at least the contest isn't ending :undecided:

There's one guy that could have a chance of getting 27 before that though (has 27 now). It'll be interesting to see if (s)he does.

Can he/she just stop and wait a few days?

It's actually 21 not 27.

And I'm at 9 - my longest by 5 :(

See how I go and jinx it?

Anyways, guess there's no point in making picks until April 1st.

Someone is up to 24 right! Funny that espn only has 5 games to pick from today, which is about 5 less than I've seen any other day - and no games up tomorrow at all...fishy?

So fishy. Especially since it seems the max amount of picks for today is 2. But this is the negative for the people picking only one game per day and not even picking every day.

Their streak ended! Not sure against who because I don't remember their name.

Only one match for tomorrow on the schedule!

Yup. He got to 25 and then picked the Spurs to beat the Hornets and looking at the scoreline, it probably could have gone either way. It's kind of sad.

Ouch. That sucks.

I finally reached a streak of 5 and have a star by my name! Quite a major accomplishment for me.

I just started thanks to this thread. It looked easy at the beginning with 3 wins. I followed the 3 wins up with 3 losses.

The guy that got 25 wins must be heartbroken. I also had the Spurs over the Hornets.

Oh well! It all starts again on April 1.

I'll be happy when the game is reset. I haven't been doing so well lately.

New session of the Streak has started? And they changed the rules :undecided:

Ummm...what rules have changed? The only diff I see so far is that the prizes are rewarded differently.

That's the change. No more million for getting to any specific number.

Though I do like the idea of little prizes for hitting 13. Seems doable.

Up my alley - I'm not the type to play the lottery - would rather play the games that are easier to win and have smaller prizes.

To check out my majority is wrong theory - checked today and so far the majority is 3-4 (including 3 where over 80% of people were wrong.) Maybe since they lowered the number for prizes, they've cut down on number of games and have somehow figured out the least predictable ones.

I'm at 2-0 and picked Atlanta (were only picked by 18% of the people) and the Suns (picked by 48% of the people). I think the major factor is that people tend to either a)pick simply by a team's record or b) just go with the majority.

Something I am finally getting around to learning is that you can't trust the majority, and always be weary of picking away teams.

I wanted to pick against my Pistons, but picked an earlier game and then never logged in in between, so just 1-0 so far.

I hope we're right. It'll give me a streak of 2 if we are.

Didn't want to do that match - Romero is one of those hot and cold players, could go either way with him.

I did pick golf - Ogilivy over a struggling Appleby. The catch is Appleby has historically done well on this course (first in 2006, 2nd in 2007.)

Tennis alert - Ljubicic vs Gil 8:30 AM EST.

I went with Ljubo, even though 73% didn't
