A blog . . . in spite of how pathetic blogging actually is.

Enter The Really Pathetic Blog Minnesota U.S. Senate Pool!

This bad boy's going to the U.S. Supreme Court. I can feel it.

So, here are the rules.

Enter the pool by commenting on this post (Please use your real name so we know who you are. You can enter your name under the 'Anonymous' option if you want.)

Guess at the following (Label each answer in your comment, please):

1--In whose favor will the U.S. Supreme Court rule? (Coleman or Franken): 10 points for a correct pick.

2--What will be the U.S. Supreme Court vote count? (i.e. 5 to 4, 7 to 2, etc.): 10 points for a correct pick (A 2 point penalty for every vote you miss it by up to 5 votes total which would put you at zero for this category).

3--What will be the legally recognized margin of victory in the Minnesota popular vote as a result of the Supreme Court's decision (A 0.1 point penalty for every vote you miss it by up to 100 votes total which would put you at zero for this category).

The winner gets a can of Campbell's Tomato Soup, paid for entirely out of The Really Pathetic Blog's operating budget.

Enter now! Once the U.S. Supreme Court agrees to hear the case, no additional entries will be accepted!

How about Coleman, 7 to 2, 175 votes?

He's the incumbent, so he'll get the nod.
