How does that work anyway? I guess I won the week but I missed the deadline for the second set of tiebreakers and I didn’t get the first set right.

I'm not sure how they score the tie breakers, LadyJ. Care to compare our tiebreakers from last week?

I assume they just go down the list. My tiebreaker #1:

Baltimore 31
Houston 27

Actual game score: Bal 23 Hou 16

Pittsburgh 38
Green Bay 21

Actual game score: Pitt 31 GB 28

Hmm I had:

Baltimore 31
Houston 20
Total 12 points off actuals
You: 19 points off

Green Bay 17
Pittsburgh 24
Total 18 points off actuals
You: 14 points off

So I was off by a combined total of 30; you by 33. I guess that’s it. Assuming you got tiebreaker #2 wrong?

I had Pittsburgh as highest scoring team.
Indy as lowest scorer.

You beat me fair and square on Tiebreaker #1. Maybe they don't go any further in tiebreaking when that happens.

Anyway.....Congratulations on your win!

I always put 3-0 in both...

Ha well thanks Nines but hell of a lot of good it does me after the disastrous 4 weeks I picked in advance before going to Cuba. Or just my generally shitty picking all season.

Still time for you to have your white wedding before playoffs. Good luck!

From deep in the weeds, rounding the backstretch, on the final curve, heading for home, out of 4th place and 20 points down, comes our new leader, if only for a day.

Yes, you heard it here first. And I owe it all to the 49ers. I actually switched from my original Houston pick this morning.

Down goes Frazier!

I've been mulling your hot tip. No decision as of yet.

But the Pick 'em odds give the Fins a 2% chance of victory. So your hot tip is really attractive.

Actually, it wasn't.

It was a stone cold lock. So I was just going with a sure thing.

You see, there's a little story behind this.

On Saturday, I put my picks in. Although I don't like going against the Fins, I admitted to myself that they were likely to lose. In fact, it would probably be a good bet to go with 15 or 16 points against them. But I couldn't go that far. So I chose New England to win and set the points at 8.

But then Saturday night came and I had a dream. In this dream the Dolphins had won and I really regretted picking against them. Something in me knew that they were going to win, but I picked against them anyway because that was the "smart" thing to do.

Well, when I woke up Sunday morning, I knew what I had to do.

And that's a 100% true story.

You see, I sometimes get a strong sense of intuition about these kinds of things.

I can be watching a baseball game, for example, and suddenly I'll get this sense that the batter is going to hit a home run. And then he does.

When I'm watching with others, I'll sometimes say it out loud before it happens. Then it happens on the next pitch, and everybody is like, "What the fuck?"

I remember watching one game and calling a home run before it happened. Everybody was like, "What the fuck?" And then later in the game I got the same intuition, but I thought it was just my mind playing tricks on me because it had happened before, so I didn't say anything. But then sure enough -- home run.

I've thought that maybe I should try to develop this sixth sense like the dudes the Army had where they trained in "remote viewing." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stargate_Project

Anyway, this was my own little way of calling a homer before it happened. I knew no one would take me seriously and go against New England, so I figured it was safe to give my "sure thing" to all and sundry.

From now on, however, you might just want to listen when Ol' Uncle Anno gives you a tip. ... Unless you're in competition with me, of course. I might just be throwing you off. :wink:

Yeah, that Raiders game just killed me by giving everybody else 10 points.

The nimrod wasn't even holding the stick in the neutral, vertical, position, but was bending it in the pro-Dallas position during the index card test.

What a crock of shit to end a bitter week.
