Digging through my post history, I see I've been entering these contests since #3. 5 and 6 didn't go so well for me, but I wound up winning #4 in 2014, and got some cool prizes. Enough bragging from me, though, go enter this year's contest. This year you'll probably have to choose if you want to go with the crowd and New England and try to win it on tiebreakers, or take a flier on someone like Houston, Oakland, or Detroit.
In case you had trouble wading through all my links, here's the link to this year's contest. Good luck!
