Know what it’s fun to do on a lazy weekend day? Leave the house and tell your family you’ll be back later. Maybe. Uhhh, not that I’ve ever done that. Just kidding!

Another thing that’s fun is playing Wii all day. And then if you’re over the age of 14, you won’t be able to move the next day. Not that that’s ever happened to me after a head-to-head bowling competition. Ahem.

What were we talking about? Oh! Right! We were talking about how your family was really wanting to check out Backyard Football 2010 for the Wii, and how you were hoping you could win it from Want Not. Right? I’m here for you.

For a chance to win it, first read the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, November 16th, 2009 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and yardage.

Ready? Go!
