So who won it all? If I remember correctly it was Cowdoc in the lead?

Did he hold on?

He won over Osso by One? Wow...

Its amazing how like 270+ picks come down to just one...

@Region Philbis,
Yay, it worked! I can occasionally see a youtube video but most of the time not. If I haven't tried in a few days, usually the first one I try will show up. Thanks.

Gooooo, Washington!

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
It was the Carolina pick - if I had changed my pick from NO as a hail mary, we'd have been tied. 6 point game, as it was.

Now he owes me dessert at the Cafe on Roma. . . . (he and his wife visit Albuquerque on occasion). Oh, wait, I owe him.

Congratulations, CowDoc!




at least I think that's what happened.

In With The New ...
The next A2K/NFL game is aimed at people who might or might not care about foo0tball but will be subjected to all the Super Bowl hype for the next month - as well as for y'all. The idea is to pick the winners in the wild card games (deadline: January 5th) and then to pick the winners in the rest of the games through to the end in one sitting (deadline: January 12th).
Watch for details tomorrow!

Happy New Year to us all.

Wow is right! Great game all.
John-Boy, thanks again for all your time and number-crunching.

I've made up a spreadsheet you may find helpful if you use Excel.
But given that you've just tossed 57 paper pages, maybe you don't . . .

@ehBeth,
Well, the man's an artist (I just know it) - and runs his own art store. I get his ways - I kept hand drafting well into the 2000's because I enjoyed it. Plus the grid paper is free to him.

In retrospect, keeping track of 20 players - on a weekly basis and on their cumulative records over the course of a season - was beyond the tipping point for me.
By the time I realized that we were well into the season. I can certainly see the need for a change next year.
