I'm in, ready to provide my usual standard of mediocrity. Just as is the team I root for :roll: :roll: :roll:

The first game is tonight, and only five people in the group so far! That means I can't finish any worse than 5th place....

Don't make me go all Ace over everyone.....

I'm in a Yahoo football pick thingie that my sister put together. It has about 18 members. I am in first place. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
I have no idea what I'm doing. Everyone in our league picked the Rams to win last night. Every last one of us. I was the only one stupid enough to put 13 confidence points on it, so I'm in first so far this week, too. :lol: :lol:
My sister texted me to ask how I'm doing so well. I sent her that meme of a german shepherd driving a tank with the caption "I have no idea what I'm doing."

After leading the pack most of this season, I am, not surprisingly, doing a late season choke job. I will no doubt wind up in my customary 3rd place. I trust Miss Congeniality is still up for grabs...

My 152 games correct is the top mark while I trail on overall points by 8 & 10. Looks like I'm leading the popular vote yet losing in the electoral college. It will be tricky picking in the last week needing to make up some ground while not wanting to do anything crazy. I suspect I need to pick one good upset and keep the rest of my selections toward the expected standard winners.

Hey! I ain't giving up yet. Making up 34 points isn't impossible.

Just wanted to make sure I didn't peak too soon.

It was a small group while it still made each week of the season more interesting. Thank you for keeping the tradition going. Next season I'll work on valuating the games better as I get the Pyrrhic victory for having the most winners yet came in third overall. After 17 games I still never figured out what Jax would do week to week. NE at home was easier as the Pats went 8-0.
