Bracket Battle Pick’em Contest: Week 3 Leaderboard

Bonjour Brilliant Beautiful Building Bracket Battle Best Buddies,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “B”)

As many of you know, the seventh edition of the Bracket Battle is back this summer. This time it’s to determine the best season of The Simpsons. However, this time, we have an added pick’em contest to go along with the Bracket Battle and the Addicts have been kind enough to provide a prize of $10 USD gift card (or equivalent) to one winner from the United States and one International winner.

While it’s too late to enter the contest now, the original contest post with rules can be found here.

A quick recap of the contest:

  • Basically everyone who entered made their 31 picks for who will win the 31 head-to-head matchups.
  • Every correct Round 1 (weeks 1-4) matchup is worth 1 point.
  • Every correct Round 2 (weeks 5-6) matchup is worth 2 points.
  • Every correct Round 3 (week 7) matchup is worth 5 points.
  • Every correct Round 4 (week 8) matchup is worth 10 points.
  • And correctly predicting the winner in Round 5 (week 9) is worth 20 points.
  • The two people (1 from US, 1 international) with the most points at the end of the Bracket Battle each win a prize.

So how am I doing so far?

Here is the Leaderboard after Week 3, sorted by points then alphabetically by name:

  1. Congrats to Cassie T (you have serious Simpsons skills!) 👑
    Thanks Safi (winning or losing this has been fun!).😀👍🏻

  2. Is anyone else having issues with WordPress no longer sending notification emails for new posts and/or new comments here? I’m not getting a confirmation email for new notifications I sign up for, either, which they instituted a while back. I logged into my WordPress account and it looks like they’ve made major changes to the site….I was able to see that I’m subscribed to this blog, but can’t find the list of posts I’m subscribed to anymore! I do still seem to be subscribed to posts from before the change, as I’m still getting emails for new comments on those, but nothing more recent. Does anyone know what might be going on? Is it just me? Thanks, in advance, for any help!!

    • I’m still getting them. I’ve heard a lot of blogs lately have had to change their newsletters because feedburner wasn’t doing it anymore.
