I was going to PM you today Nines to see if you were putting up a league this year, glad to see that you have. I have joined, let's hope that I win this year.

You didn't win it. Unless you were pregnant and gave birth to a baby during the playoffs.

LadyJ is the Defending Champion.

Apologies to Lady J. I won one of these pickems recently; it must have been college.

Now that you mention it, I remember LadyJ wiping the floor with all of us.

You should forget more often.

If you hadn't forgotten, and instead dropped ~8 on Cin City like the rest of us, you would have tied for 6th with Formula instead of winning.

I wouldn't have necessarily put the points on Cincinnati (and certainly not necessarily 8 of them). I saw what they did last week.

Houston didn't do great last week either. So I don't know what I would have done.

If I had my way you'd have lost 16 points Thursday night instead of just 1. But Yahoo Fantasy Sports sees it differently.

This has happened more than once. A heavily favored team loses on Thursday night and the players that got their picks in on time are punished hard when the favorite loses whereas the slackers get off with losing only one point.

If you would like to not pick Thursday games, you have that option. Every week. It's an option that's open to all.

But of course it makes no sense to do that intentionally.

In fact, you can choose to opt out of ANY or ALL the games. Every week. It's an option that's open to all!

You losers simply got schooled by someone who didn't even have the benefit of picking all the games!

It's like fighting with one hand tied behind your back. ... And STILL winning. LOL!

My advice: Pick better.

I'm debating whether I should even try this year.

If I decide to, then yes, I should probably have enough points by Week 10 to wrap things up.
