For those of you following the BWN vs GO8 feud... The contest was even at 5-5 thru 10 games. Then GO8 went on a 5-game winning streak. BWN won the final week when GO8 was resting his starting football brain cells. GO8 won the WC game.

The RICHIE award for a perfect prediction goes to WagonForce
(the award will not be renamed this year because Richie's correct prediction was for a more difficult game)
[what's wrong with us that we only get 1 right out of 500?]

The PETER PIPER award for picking most [13] winners: 1)Bearfanuk / Boris13c 3)the eight people tied for 3rd with 12 correct are not worth mentioning except for Funkster who had the highest percentage correct of anyone at 92%.

Middleguard's awards for 2018 score predictions

Sun Feb 10, 2019 12:00 pm

My wife gave birth to a son two weeks ago - our first - and now I login to see that I’ve outdone my proudest achievement! Wow. Winning. What a feeling! You’ll all feel it someday soon I’m sure of it! I’d like to thank my parents, God, my fourth grade teacher Mrs Hunter, and Jim Beam bourbon. I owe all of my football brilliance to them!

MG replying now with my email so I can collect my prize!

Thanks for your work! We owe you, MG. :headbang:

That was a lot of fun. Thanks for doing that Middleguard! It looks like to took some work.

I'm quite sure that G08 will be gracious in his victory over me, and that there will be no gloating or poor sportsmanship involved...
