For our challenge last week, I asked you to come up with some better nicknames for Player’s Weekend. We had a ton of input from a lot of people, so before I get into the winners, a friendly reminder that if you have two entries, you only get points from the most rec’d comment. With that in mind, I give you our clear winner, Keegan Thompson!

For the record, it’s really awesome to see when you all are using that rec button. Show some love for the comments that you think deserve it and hit that button! Now let’s look at the updated standings

Alright, we’re going to go playoff themed for this week. As I was listening to the pre-game show for Friday’s game, they had a lengthy commercial interview with Derrek Hall about the upcoming ticket deals against the Rockies. They were calling it the Push For the Playoffs, or something equally uninspired. Your mission is to come up with a better marketing campaign for the playoffs. Go!
