To those that are interested, I've been in discussions with Dukerdog about coordinating the "2012 Kip Litton Boston Marathon Prediction Contest". We did a similar contest in February, 2011 when Kip was going to run in the Cowtown Marathon (he was a DNS). In my gut I think he'll bail on Boston, but I figured we might as well make it interesting in the event he puts on his black sweat pants and lines up in Hopkinton to prove us wrong.
Anwyay...we're still working on the specific rules, but the prize structure will be similar. People will submit their entry, and the winner will receive a $5 lotto ticket for a chance to bring home millions of dollars in the MegaMillions drawing. Last year we had a tie. I never heard from either of the winners, so I'm presuming they didn't hit the big jackpot and are still stuck working their day jobs.
More information, along with the full set of rules, will follow.
