We’re going to make this one short and sweet, folks, since our clock is ticking. The NFL season is almost upon us.
As many of you know, for the past ten years, I’ve hosted an Over/Under pick ‘em contest on this website. This year will be no exception.
Since the NFL currently plans to proceed with its season, without fans in the stands, we’re going to proceed with our annual over/under game.
We football fans are hoping the season goes off without a hitch. Some of us are even hoping to sneak into a stadium before it’s all said and done.
Here at SportsChump, for the sake of this contest, we are going to assume all will go on as scheduled so get your predictions ready.
Before you do, however, first a look at last year’s results. In reverse order, out of a possible 55 points:
J-Dub – 14 (Picking up the rear as usual.)
SportsChump – 17 (My low score explains why I lost so much money ATS last year.)
Sauze Bauze – 26 (Near the bottom but considerably better than the host. Then again, who wasn’t?)
BNRMoose – 29 (Approaching respectability.)
Speedbeagle – 31 (As always, proving she’s not just about NASCAR.)
Joseph Mills – 32 (Betting on the Bears and Falcons to finish over is never good advice.)
Fibbs – 32 (Glad he got out of the ticket sales game while he had the chance.)
Ravenous – 35 (Ravenous… but not ravenous enough.)
Heavy D – 38 (How many times have you finished second in this thing, D? Always a bridesmaid.)
And our winner and FIRST EVER TWO-TIME CHAMPION OF THIS CONTEST…. GIVE IT UP FOR KP!!!!
KP tallied 48 points, only missing on three teams (Chargers, Panthers and Falcons all over) but made sure they were all for low points. Congratulations, sir. Care to go for three? I’ll email you with the particulars.
If you’ve entered this contest before, you know the rules. If you haven’t, here ya’ go.
