Update: Eventhough, I am doing the draft today, I won't reveal the picks until a day or two later, so more people can get in if they want.

I recently received an email from a guy over at Sports Publishing LLC regarding a book called Game of My Life: Chicago Bears.  The book is written by Lew Freedman, columnist for The Chicago Tribune.  I will have a small review coming later this week.

Here is a quick synopsis:

A select group of 28 Chicago Bears players offer intimate private remembrances of legendary games and how they reacted to the spotlight. Big touchdowns, career-making moments, and championship glory shared all come to the surface for Bears of the past half-century. Hall of Famers like Dick Butkus, Gale Sayers, Mike Ditka, Mike Singletary, and Stan Jones, along with current and former stars like Brian Urlacher, Gary Fencik, Richard Dent, Matt Suhey, and Kevin Butler, reflect on special plays and special games.

So here is the deal, I have been trying to come up with a fun and clever way of giving away the extra copies that he sent.  On short notice, this is the best I have come up with, so hopefully I get some decent participation.  If not, I might have to resort to the ol trivia route.

Tonight, I have a fantasy football draft.  It is a 10 man league drafting serpentine format.  I draft second.  To win the book, predict my first 3 picks.  I will allow you to submit five names and whoever has the most that are in my first three picks wins.  If there is a tie, the person who submitted their answer the soonest wins.  

You can leave you answers in the comment section or if you wish to keep your fantasy football greatness in a shroud of secrecy feel free to email me at windycitygridiron AT gmail DOT com.

Good Luck!
