Another TFP Sports Contest - Enter Now!

To enter: Pick a winner in each of the ten events listed
below. Entries must be in by Friday, 7:05 p.m. EST. Entries
will be recorded then, so noone can sneak in late. What is the
prize? Recognition in this space and the adulation of TFP folk.

Take a shot at it! I've picked events that anyone can win, and
some events many don't know too much about. Links are provided for each contest, but luck probably plays more of a factor than sports acumen, cause anyone can win these events.

Every event should be easy to pick, the F1 race you pick a driver,
not a team. Please be sure to include the tiebreak along with
your picks, as the winner last time needed the tiebreak to prevail.

Speaking of the last winner - smarm. Congrats to smarm. All hail
smarm.

Finally, this weekend is not great for this contest. I did my
best with the events, but I couldn't use NBA finals or French Open
for the weekend cause we don't know who is playing yet! Even the MLB pitching matchups are boring - with the definite exception of Maddox vs Glavine. So, we have some women's events, along with two soccer games.

Take your best shot. Winner will be announced Monday!


UPDATE
It was a bit of a strange contest that included one tie (everyone got credit) and two contests noone picked correctly (F1 and WNBA).

And the winner is.... ME! My mother always told me I was a winner. Honorable mentions go to crfpilot, Reacharound, and jmf1234. Congrats to all.
