Poll Competition 2: Poll 5 Round 1

The last poll's winner was Santa Anita. This will be the last poll in the 1st round. I've skipped a lot of posts because I don't think they should be in the polls and I want to get to the 2nd round (Championship) faster!
Here is the poll:

The Ultimate Blogging Challenge

Today I decided I would start something called the Ultimate Blogging Challenge! In the Ultimate Blogging Challenge I will split people up into teams and the teams will get different challenges. If one person dosen't do the challenge their team will be out of the competition! The last team with all of their team members still left in the competition will be the winner. The challenges will either be leaving a comment on a certain blog or writing a post with a topic I give you. All you need to have to sign up is a blog!

Here is how to sign up:

Leave a comment on this post with the following information by December 20th:

Request of someone else who you want on your team (Optional)

Important message:

There is no prize for winning. It is just to get more people to know about your blog and to get more comments! Also, it's fun!
