I saw a video on http://www.samueladams.com/promotions.aspx where Jim
Koch gave instructions for home brewing, and to prime his beer he put
the dry malt extract directly into the finished beer without boiling a
priming solution first.  Then he stirred it into the beer with a wire
whisk.  Has anyone used this method before?  I've always been instructed
to boil the priming malt first, and to gently stir it into the beer
before bottling.  Seems Jim's method opens the door possible infection.

He should know better. Whisking finished beer would aerate it and
oxidize it.
Priming sugar should always be dissolved and boiled first.

That could be something to throw off the competition too. You never know.
