New Contest!

Ok folks, Caps Chick isn't the only one who can do pithy little contests to get us through the rest of the season...

Yours truly, Ol' Crazy Uncle Caps Nut, has an idea for a really good and fun contest. As we all know the, the Caps have 7 games left in the season. And in 3 of his last 4 articles, Caps (Com)Post beat writer Tarik El-Bashir has referred to the Caps as "undermanned," "injury-riddled," and "trade depleted."

Now your mission should you choose to accept it is to guess how many of those terms that Tarik uses in the final two weeks of the 2006-2007 season. The cut off for articles will be April 10th to allow Tarik to do a "season wrap up." Every mention of "undermanned," "injury-riddled," and "trade depleted" will count as one single reference. So for instance, in today's screed, the official count is three references.

So take a guess as to how many references to "undermanned," "injury-riddled," and "trade depleted" by Tarik starting with any article that appears between tomorrow, Saturday March 24th, 2007 and Tuesday April 10th, 2007. References on Tarik's Capitals Insider Blog will not count towards the final tally nor will weekly (Com)Post internet chats. If somebody other than Tarik has the byline in the (Com)Post, references will not count. Only references in the (Com)Post Dead Tree Publication credited to Tarik El-Bashir will count towards this contest.

You may enter as often as you like however the cut off for entries is 11:59 pm Eastern Time on April 6th, 2007. ONLY YOUR LAST ENTRY WILL BE COUNTED, SO CHOOSE WISELY!

Please send all entries to "capsnut" over at gmail dot com. The Winner is the one who correctly guesses the number of references WITHOUT GOING OVER the earliest. The Winner shall receive a mention in this blog. Family members of the blog owner and employees of the (Com)Post are not eligible to enter (especially Tarik El-Bashir should he read this blog). The owner of the blog reserves the right to add additional terms to the contest at his discretion until noon on April 6th, 2007. The final count of the blog owner is final and indisputable. Disputing the final count complied by the blog owner will result in disqualification so don't try it bub.
