    Uh ,little known fact , I played baseball, went to bat ONE TIME , the pitcher was pretty wild the umpire told me I had four balls, since then I bow to no man.

    SO I'll just tell ya that warm sensation on the back of your neck, it's ME BREATHING, don't look back, cuz when you turn back around I may have passed you.
    But yer a worthy opponent and when the bronze statue is cast commemerating my come from behind performance ,I'll tell people ,it was you pushing me to greatness.

    BANJO TIME :tooth:

    Well,I'm expecting a stinko week anytime the first week I DID picks but somehow they weren't submitted correctly ,I had something like 6 right that week and this week isn't starting out so well since I picked the Cowboys and SOMEHOW I don't think they will suck it up as well on the road in Cinn. as the Chiefs did .
    That game I really puzzled over a while before I picked the Cowboys anyway and who knows maybe they hunker down dedicate this game to the kid who died in that wreck.
    As for me I really only give a crap that one of my picks comes through, hopefully the Rams are focused and ready to put up some points today, the boards have been all farts and giggles about our D all week and little or no distress about the fact that we scored a whole 3 points on O during regulation last week, ONE FOOT strike away from being shut out. :what:

    Juice Harps I hear juice harps, mus be cousin grandpa ,better go git my banjo time fer Sunday go to meetin

    You know it's not the pick but the team. KC last week proves that one more than any odds.

    K- I'm in. And I gave everyone a freebee because I can't stomach choosing a team to WIN a certain match-up. I could really go for THAT game ending in a tie in which one team loses its starting QB and the other has their D get suspended for 8 games for anti-doping violations.

    Congrats RQ! And I'll take a 5th best especially after the dismal start. And a shout out to Selassie for finishing BEHIND me! And I'm proud to proclaim that I never picked against our RAMS all season. (Homer award deserved)

    And thanks for putting this Pick em up X. I love the competition.

    Can we have a playoff thingy?

    Have one every week like before, or do a March Madness style where everyone fills out the brackets before hand.

    That's a bit outside the capabilities of that software. Having that many people predicting just a few games a week is going to produce a bunch of ties. And it's not set up for point spreads or anything like that either. If you wanna organize a bracket though, then by all means...

    LOL

    This was fun. I thought it would be easier to pick straight-up instead of against the spread like last year. Well, I was wrong on that. Last year I came in 2nd,,, this year I was like 4th or 5th.

    My real battle was with my son "Ramrasta". That is why he and I always hid our picks (we were hiding them from each other). He came in tied for 2nd I see (he also had 4 winning weeks to my measly 2).


    I must admit though,,, losing to Husker by 1 hurt almost as much as getting my ass kicked by my son. :oops: WTF
