Hope to see you tonight,
Scarecrow Fantasy Football Are you ready for a little fun while getting involved with an important issue?
The Knoxville Journal is supporting this survivor NFL game with this weekly column while media participants compete and stir more attention to hunger solutions. Why play this fantasy game? It's a simple way to motivate all of us while addressing a puzzling question. Why should anyone in America be hungry?
Q: How can you participate?
A: By following this column, you are invited join our team efforts.
Q: Who is playing Scarecrow Fantasy Football?
A: 50 media participants and Scarecrow Ambassadors all want to win Scarecrow Bowl 2
Q: How does the game work?
A: Each week, each participant picks (1) Quarterback, (1) Running Back, (1) Wide Receiver, and (1) Tight End. Based on selected player fantasy results for that given week, a cumulative fantasy score is tallied for each participant. The lowest three scores exit the competition.
Q: So is the game a survivor concept?
A: Yes, and since the NFL regular season is 17 weeks, and with 3 participants being eliminated each week, there will be two survivors for Scarecrow Bowl 2 in week 17.
Q: What it a participant's greatest fear?
A: Being eliminated in week 1...let the smack talk begin
Q: Are there any special rules or strategy for the game?
A: Yes. Once a participant picks a player and advances to the next week, he or she can not pick such player again for the remainder of Scarecrow Fantasy Football. For example, if a participant picks Peyton Manning in week 1, the participant may not use Peyton Manning again. So there is plenty of strategy and a little luck of when to play remaining NFL players.
Next week in this column we will list all 50 participants, and all 50 are focused on winning the Grand Prize which will be announced next week and of course bragging rights. Our returning champion is Bob Baskerville of Scripps Networks, as Rosemary Elkins of skirt! Magazine gave him quite a game in our initial Scarecrow Bowl. Bob won (2) 50-yard line Sky-box seats at The Swamp for the Tennessee-Florida game and the pride of winning it all.
We say "Thank You" to all of you who are actively involved with many of our outstanding local and regional hunger agencies. And we thank our media friends for all they are doing, and taking the time to have a friendly competition playing this crazy little game called Scarecrow Fantasy Football.
