Are you ready for some football? I created a football pool in 2006 and invited family and friends to join. Since then I have opened it up to friends of the ministry. Note that this is NOT fantasy football! There are no betting lines, in other words, all you have to do is pick who you think will win each week. That’s it.
The pool includes all of the Thursday night games too so pay attention to the weekly deadlines. The winner of the season gets a $20 gift card to the restaurant of their choice. Sorry folks, but that means the winner has to be someone here in the US of A. Competition will be stiffer this year as Calvin’s Corner and I tied last year. Can you believe it? A stinking tie!
In order to join, you must register as a user athttp://www.poolhost.com/ When registering, you will choose a personal username and password. Once you’ve entered PoolHost.com as a registered user, go to the “Pool Tools” menu and choose “Join a Private Pool”. Click on the “Pro Football Pick’ems” icon in the upper left corner and then you will be asked to enter the Pool’s Login Name and the Pool’s Password.
The Pool’s Login Name is: EMfootballpool
The Pool’s Password is: football
That’s it and then you’re in! The next time you login to http://www.poolhost.com/, you can go to ‘My Pools’ and you’ll see all pools that you have joined. Clicking on a pool name will take you to that pool.
I only ask two things. First, your user name needs to be family friendly. My kids are a part of this pool and I don’t need them seeing inappropriate names. Second, if you are going to sign up for the football pool, please consider also signing up for our Evidence Ministries Newsletter and our email update list. You can do that here. There is no cost for the pool or the newsletters. Join in and lets have some fun!
And yes, this pool is open for Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons too.
