If I post here at all you already know what I'm gonna say, right?
Well, just to make it official:
For the past half dozen or more years, we have had a game on A2K where we pick the winners in each week's NFL games. Kickycan started it and then I ran it except for the year JPB in Chicago took over. We had a mere 6 players or so the 1st year but got to something like 24 last year.
Most of us know nothing about football, but that was no obstacle. We had a player named Coin Toss/Coin Toss who flipped, unsurprisingly, coins.
We are ready to go for another season, set to begin in NEXT WEEK! We have players from Mexico through the U.S. and Canada, and over to Europe. And we welcome new participants.
So to review the game here on A2K. Each week we post the games that often start on a Thursday and end on the following Monday. I used to do that on Tuesday, but in recent years I do it on Sundays for the benefit of folks who actually work and often travel between Tuesday and Thursday - as opposed to those of us who lull about building mock stadiums out of twinkies and beef jerky.
All you have to do is pick the winner in the games posted. You can change your picks in any game up until the start of the 1st game of each week. You also have to predict the final score in the last game of the week. I use that as the tiebreaker in determining the winner for the week.
We keep track of folks' cumulative scores for the season and eventually get to a winner for the season.
Here is the schedule for Week #1 to show you the format:
Thursday, September 8th:
New Orleans @ Green Bay
Sunday, September 11th:
Atlanta @ Chicago
Philadelphia @ St Louis
Detroit @ Tampa Bay
Tennessee @ Jacksonville
Indianapolis @ Houston
Cincinnati @ Cleveland
Buffalo @ Kansas City
Pittsburgh @ Baltimore
NY Giants @ Washington
Minnesota @ San Diego
Carolina @ Arizona
Seattle @ San Francisco
Dallas @ NY Jets
Monday, September 12th:
New England @ Miami
Oakland @ Denver (+ final score)
You can post your picks in any format, such as NO, Atl, Phil...or you can take the time to explain your choices. Or trash talk.
Remember that you can change your picks, so there is no penalty for picking early.
There are some other rules, but I will get into them once I remember what they are.
. . . Which means to me that I should find myself some dice.
Or a quarter to toss. . .
