NFL dominates Round 6 of ‘Hardwood’

Add this share

harrington_joey_blog2.jpgThe NFL fills out the candidates for Round 6 in the “King of the Hardwood” competition. And the roster is full of quarterbacks – Joey Harrington of the Falcons (well, former QB), the Packers’ Brett Favre (well, former QB), Tony Romo of the Cowboys, Tom Brady of the Patriots and, of course, Eli Manning of the Super Bowl Champion Giants.

There’s a total of 20 players to vote on, so take your time and carefully review the photos of each. Heck, feel free to do independent research. This is important stuff, after all.

Here’s how “Hardwood” works: Groups of jocks are pre-selected by Layne, the competition’s organizer, from eight areas – swimming and diving, track and field, hockey and Australian smith_alex_blog.jpgfootball, tennis, baseball, soccer, pro football and rugby. Every few days, there’s a new qualifying round – just two more rounds remain. Vote for your favorites, check the running vote tallies on his blog and look for the final round of 64 in mid-March to coincide with the selections for the NCAA basketball tournament.

My favorites include Harrington (top photo), Will Demps of the Giants and Alex Smith (bottom photo) of the San Francisco 49ers.
