free against his/her family and friends or even total strangers. The serious enthusiast can literally put their money where their mouth is by entering any of the money contests available on HollyStock.com. The level of play and competitiveness can be customized for players of all skill types."
HollyStock was founded by J. Joseph Dyken. Joe was the driving force behind FantasyFootballNerd.com - one of the most innovative and accurate websites in the fantasy sports industry. His technology has been called the "Cliff's Notes of the Industry" by the Washington Post and has been featured extensively in such publications as the New York Times and USA Today. He has been the recipient of numerous awards for his software's accuracy competing against some of the most well-known brands in the world.
"Our mission at HollyStock is to become the heartbeat of the celebrity world," said Dyken. "Our real-time technology gives us the most accurate, up-to-date information about not just who the entertainment world is taking about, but also why."
