FunOfficePools Launches Partnership Office Pools for Football Bloggers


Online Office Pool Site Teams with Top Bloggers to Host NCAA and NFL Football Office Pools.

Atlanta, GA, August 16, 2008 --(PR.com)-- This week, FunOfficePools (http://www.funofficepools.com) announced their new feature that allows College Football and NFL bloggers to host free office pools for their readers. FunOfficePools has hosted multiple pools for RealityTV sites for the most popular shows like Survivor and American Idol. As college and pro football seasons approach, private pools are being created across the country in businesses and within private groups.

Already this year, FunOfficePools has hosted well over 1,000 office pools for several of the most popular blogging sites on the web. IdolBlogLive, a favorite destination of American Idol fans run by DJ Slim, has teamed with FunOfficePools to run pools for multiple reality TV shows. DJ’s readers have found playing against the expert to be a lot of fun. “This is a much better feature than an online poll or trivia questions,” DJ said. “Fans of American Idol are rabid fans, and the pool helped feed their desire to play along. It gives my readers one more reason to come back to my site and helped increase their enjoyment of the shows.” DJ has now also implemented football office pools on his site.

The 2008 college football season begins in just a few weeks, so Jim Grosch and Kevin McHugh, founders of FunOfficePools.com have been working overtime to get the system ready to host football pools. “We’ve found that most people love the inter-office competition that an office pool can provide,” says Grosch. “With our new features, we can now host college or pro football pools for blog sites without them having to really do much beyond making their own picks.”

A unique feature of their college football office pool is the ability for each pool to select which games they will predict each week. “A lot of office pool sites only offer you the top 20 teams to use each week,” says McHugh. “This makes it less interesting for you if your favorite team isn’t in that group. With FunOfficePools, you can make sure the group of games you are predicting each week is the most interesting games for your group. This makes it particularly appealing for bloggers that follow one team or one conference.”

The new college and pro football features include a widget that bloggers can drop in the side-bar of their own site that lets their readers keep track of schedules and join the pool directly. Pools hosted at FunOfficePools for bloggers and podcasters can be branded to include their personalized graphics and a link back to their site.

FunOfficePools.com (http://www.funofficepools.com) hosts office pools for the most popular reality TV shows and sporting events. Each week football office pool players predict who will win this week’s most interesting games. Players can compete in their own private pools with their friends or participate in one of many public pools available on the site to compete with other college and pro football fans. The site is completely free to use, and offers office pools for NCAA and NFL football, as well as for the top reality TV shows such as American Idol, Survivor, The Amazing Race, So You Think You Can Dance, The Mole, and more.
