Local Man to Predict Big Game for a Chance to Win $10K
Congratulations to Terry Sanborn of Worcester, MA for being our local Pro Pigskin Pick 'Em Finalist!
Terry correctly picked the most regular season football games out of hundreds that he competed against. As his prize, Terry now gets to predict the scores of each quarter of the big game! Should Terry correct predict either the Halftime or Final score of the game, he walks away with $1,000 cash! If he predicts both the Halftime AND the Final score of the game, Terry wins $10,000!
I was very excited to hear that I was a finalist. I felt I was having a rather average year. I then had two bad weeks in a row followed by two good weeks in a row in Weeks 10-13. I decided to check the Leader Board after Week 14 and discovered that I was in 1st place. I am very happy I stayed there until the end and happy to hear from the station that I was a finalist.
Terry has been a lifelong Vikings fan and has attended many games. He recalls the cold Minnesota weather and the Vikings' glory years in the 1970's led by quarterback Fran Tarkenton, the Purple People Eater Defense, and coach Bud Grant.
"(Grant) did not allow the team to use sideline heaters but he did win 11 Division titles and go to 4 (championships) in his 17 years as coach."
Terry and his family attended 3 of those 4 championship games, all of which the Vikings fell short.
