I hate being "surprisingly busy" Johnny. It is definitely one of the worst painless forms of agonising aggravation. You have my deepest sympathies. I like being unsurprisingly horizontal best.

@spendius,
Tomorrow, an engineering firm is coming in to plot out the logistics for drilling 4 bore holes next week on my property where we are working on plans for the hotel. The idea is to see how deep water and bedrock are. I am betting on 50 feet for rock but I have no idea where we might encounter water.
It is not nearly as exciting as when they drilled 3 feet wide holes behind my building to put up the 7 story parking garage. They looked around and found the kid cowering behind one of the trucks. They dropped him down the hole.

This game, this thread will wind down after the games on January 3rd. 17 weeks. 27 players. 7300 picks. Over 28,000 views of this thread.
That is over 1,000 views by each of us. hmm.
Our 6th year.
BUT IT IS NOT OVER!
There will once again be a new thread where A2Ker's will be invited to make picks, all at once, through the playoffs and the Super Bowl. One visit. One chance to predict who will prevail.
AND YOU, YES YOU, CAN RUN IT!
I am looking for someone, or a consortium of someones, to run this month long thing where players get to post one set of picks. It is not at all complicated.
Any suckers...I mean takers?

I can declare that, regardless of the outcome in the remaining 2 games,
George will win Week #16 outright. He will become the 14th different

He will deliver his acceptance speech, in Latin, later.

We went 260-156 (.625) in Week #16 as a group. That is about in the middle in comparison to other weeks.
We need to single out Wandeljw for recognition. He was the only player to select the Bears over the Vikings.
George won the week by going 13-3. Well done. Edgar, Liontamerx and McGentrix finished at 12-4, while Wandeljw, Rhyss, EhBeth, Tico and Johnboy came in at 11-5. Alex, Ragman, Fox, Panzade, MaPorsche and Spendius managed to go 10-6. At 9-7 were Jespah, JPB, Region, Osso, ElStud, Cowdoc, Miz Cowdoc and Clubber. Breaking even at 8-8 were Lmur, Mysteryman and Fbaezer.
JPinMilw missed picking this week.
The best ESPN picker managed a 12-4 while the worst was 9-7.

Is that allowed Johnny. It seems like ungentlewomanly conduct to me and most definitely unsporting and as such deserves suspension.

In view of the importance of the picks in the last week I submit that Mac and myself should PM our separate choices to you and that you enter both on the thread shortly before kick-off with no possibility of revision.

That seems a fair solution to the obvious problem Mac has in relation to her fear of her own shadow.

Otherwise she has made mock of your excellent game.

@spendius,
Your post counts as a "wrong pick", spendi. McGentrix is not female.

It was a joke Spendius. I thought you had a sense of humour? (Notice I even used the English spelling.) But, if you feel your picks are super prcious, feel free to PM them to John Boy. You're always late to the party anyways.

My 3rd attempt at writing this. Grr.
The Standings after 16 weeks...
1) McGentrix (169-71 .704) takes control of 1st by just 1 game.
2) Spendius (168-72 .700) slips from 1st.
3) Maporsche (166-74 .691) gains 1 from 4th.
3) Clubber took some gambles. It didn't work well. He is down from 2nd.
5) Johnboy (164-76 .683) moves up from 6th.
5) Panzade stays in 5th.
7) Liontamerx (159-81 .662) has a good week and jumps from 15th.
7) Ehbeth also does well, up from 13th.
7) Tico rises from 12th.
7) Ragman is up 1 from 8th.
7) Fox is also.
7) Miz Cowdoc holds 7th but has a lot of company.
13) Cowdoc (153-82 .658) makes room for the 7th placers; down from 8th.
13) JPinMilw (137-71 .658) did not play but moved up 1.
15) ElStud (147-77 .656) tumbles from 11th.
16) Osso (156-84 650) slips from 15th.
16) Region does the same.
18) Rhyss (153-87 .637) stays in 18th.
19) George (150-90 .625) climbs from 24th but is 3 games back of his son.
19) Fbaezer gives up 1 position.
21) Wandeljw (149-91 .620) moves up 2 from 23rd.
21) Mysteryman slips from 20th.
21) JPB stays in 21st.
24) Jespah (148-92 .616) gives up 2 slots.
25) Edgar (146-94 .608) rises from 26th.
26) Alex (145-95 .604) loses 1 from 25th.
27) Lmur (141-99 .587) grabs a stronger hold on the cellar.

The best ESPN guy, at .666 would be in 7th again this week while the worst remains in 18th with .641.
