Quote of the day
"I think to do it, the guys actually have to believe it can happen." -- SF catcher Buster Posey, after the Giants won their sixth “win or go home” game in the postseason
Football Pickoff finally yielded some points this weekend, with 67% of active slates posting positive scores. Two entrants went 13-0, and another nine had 12 correct picks. Consensus Favorites won 12 of 13 games (Buffalo’s late loss to Tennessee was the only blemish.) And yet, only 42% of the YTD scores are currently positive.
By the way, I added an asterisk(*) in the Football Pickoff standings which denotes eligibility for GuruPatron prizes. As stated in the rules, this eligibility extends to GuruPatrons (as of 10/1/12) and members of their immediate families. I've done my best to identify these people, based upon matching of registered names, team names, or email addresses. However, this was far from an exact science, and I probably missed some people - and may have also erred in the other direction as well. If you believe your GuruPatron designation in the standings is not correct, please send me a GuruMail and I'll make the correction. And if you are not a GuruPatron and would like to become one, here is how to do it.
