We're mostly baseball around here at MASNSports.com, but that doesn't mean we won't squeeze in some football from time to time. Dan Kolko covers the Ravens for us, and we're running a free football pick-'em contest all year.
You can enter here and make your picks each week. There are weekly and yearly prizes, much like our fantasy baseball game. This time, though, you can also register with Facebook. I've got a group set up for readers of this blog (search for "The Goessling Game") where you can compete against me all year.
Speaking of football, the phrase of the day is "Who dat?" No, it's not a reference to my nickname for fellow Nats blogger Kristen Hudak (who has her own misguided football rooting interests), but to my second-favorite team (at least for this week), the New Orleans Saints.
My football allegiances are as such: My favorite team is the Green Bay Packers, and my second-favorite team is whoever's playing the Minnesota Vikings. Before you ask: Yes, I'm from Minnesota. Yes, it seems odd that I'm a Packers fan, until you consider that my whole family is from Wisconsin and I was born into the long and proud tradition of the Cheeseheads. Yes, I do own a cheesehead. And yes, I watch this just for fun.
