Last Recap of Bowl Pick'Em Contest January 15th
For the last game of the season (championship game) the fat lady had already sung. At least in points. Again, some how, I prevailed. I used every drop of luck I could muster up. 'BOOTY4LIFE' made a late run at me only to come up short. He did take 2nd. 'HawkMD57' was my main competition the entire contest. There was one week end where he was in 1st place. He took 3rd for his efforts. On the bottom end of the contest, 'ORNGE 21' just couldn't quite get it together to get out of the cellar. There were a couple of times he was close, but no cigar. Sometime doing the progressive points can fuck ya. 2nd to last was 'M'Town'. Before the final game, he was respectable. But it all went to shit. He had the correct team predicted, just not enough points. 3rd to last went to 'Sunshine'. I think his brother had to big of an influence on him this contest. It took the last game for me to have the most correct points. Thank god 'Rook's Picks' took Clemson in the last game. He was the only one that did. That is what I mean by using every drop of luck I could find. There were 3 who had 28 right. 'BOOTY4LIFE', 'HawkMD57' and 'Hawkinator'. On the bottom end of the correct picks, 'ORNGE 21' was last with 23. Down there with him was 'Matthawk' and 'TheLoneClone'. The difference between top and bottom was only 7, but it made a big difference. It looks like lightening struck twice. I am sure it will never happen again. Not only that, I am sure that next year the bottom three is my destiny in both contests.

Week 15 in the Pick'Ems:
There were 10 championship games. Five favorites prevailed and five underdogs prevailed. This has kind of been the story of the entire season. Half and half. Coming in 1st was 'Sunshine'. I think 'Sunshine' has been to the top of the leader board one other time. Unfortunately this time he needed me to do shityer the last two weeks than I did to give him a shot at No. 1. Luckly the experienced guy came out on top. This could be a good catalyst for next year. I have no where to go but down. Coming in second for the week was 'hawkeye experiment'. Much to her dismay, this was the best week she had all season. To bad there were minimal points. For her also, this performance could be a catalyst for next year. Coming in 3rd for the week was 'Booty Picker'. Talk about roller coaster rides. One week he would be in the top five, next week he would be in the bottom five. You sure could tell which weeks his oldest son helped him out. Maybe next year his son will help him every week and 'Booty Picker; will win this contest. On the bottom end of the week, 'M'town' was in last place. If he just would have started his confidence point in the opposite direction, he would have been it the upper tier of the week. I think this is the story of the stars this year. I did some research. If he would have done his confidence points all year the exact opposite that he did, he would have finished 4th in the contest. That would have been his best finish ever. However, this also just goes to prove that you need more that the stars to finished in the top three. Coming in 2nd to last for the week was 'Butta'. The last two weeks of the contest 'Butta' tried some unorthodox methods to move up in the contest but it ended up fucking him. Maybe this is a catalyst for him also. Coming in 3rd to last for the week was me. My true colors finally came out. Thank god it was the last week and it didn't fuck me to bad. I gotta say that the pressure of being in 1st place was a bit overwhelming. Thank god again that I grew my hair long and was able to handle it ( remember Samson).
Contest Overview Week 15:
Sense there were only 55 points to be had in week 15, there wasn't much moving around from last week. Some how, some way, I was able to hang on by the skin of my teeth, and stayed in 1st place. I have absolutely no idea how this was able to happen this year. I have done this contest the same way every year and one time I was able to get to 3rd place. But most of the time I am middle of the pack, or down towards the bottom, like last year ending up 2nd to last. I am going to enjoy this small victory because I know that next year I will probably end up in 2nd to last place (unless, of course, the stars aline and I will end up in last place). 'Sunshine' took 2nd place in the contest. 49 points short. That was way to close for my comfort. His brother 'MattHawk' took 3rd. Both those boys made big moves at me in the last weeks of the contest. But as 'Sunshines' girlfriend has said, they were a bit short. On the bottom side of the contest, 'M'town' captured last place. I do not think the stars lined up even once this season. There were a couple of reflections, but not enough to get him out of the cellar. 2nd to last belongs to 'its'. He did have some signs of brilliance a couple of times this season but not nearly enough to get to him to mediocre. Taking 3rd to last was 'Hawkinator'. 'Hawkinator' is not used to doing this terrible in the contest. He might be going through a transition of life. Maybe by next year he will have settled down and be able to concentrate. We will have to wait and see. Here are the movers (up) and the shakers (down) this week. Only two people moved at all. 'hawkeye experiment' and ORNGE 21' switched places. Everyone else stayed where they were. That is what happens when you only have 10 games.
There you go, the last week in the pick em's. Here is how everyone ended up:
WEEK 14 CONTEST STANDINGS
1) THAWK______________________380 1) Dave the Rave----------------------4305
There were 32 games this week in the Pick'ems. 15 underdogs. 17 favorites. Again, when it is this even, everyone gets fucked. Coming in 1st for the week was 'THAWK'. And he kind of kicked everyone's ass. He is feeling like his old self. It's been a long time coming. He wants to contend now. Problem is that there is only one more week. To little, to late. But better late then never. Let's see how he does next week. Coming in 2nd was 'HawkDoc57'. He wanted to go out with a bang. He sure is. Coming in 3rd for the week was 'Sunshine'. What did I tell you. He is coming for my ass. Thank god he only beat me by 13 points. Otherwise he would have gotten my ass. It is possible that 'Sunshine' might be a little short this year. At least that is what his girlfriend says. On the bottom end this week, 'Butta' came in last place. The blue fucked him again. You would think that after getting fucked this often by the blue, he would start turning black. But no, he hasn't. Coming in 2nd to last was 'Kinnickrulz'. He was another one of the few that believed in the blue. Rounding out the bottom 3 was 'its'. In the second to last week in the past contests, this is what usually happens to 'its'. He puts it all out there. Either he is gold or he gets fucked. He has never gotten gold.
Contest Overview Week 14:
There wasn't a lot of movement this week. It is getting scary now. I am still leading with one more week to go. I am crumbling under the pressure. 'Sunshine' is right on my ass. The last couple of weeks have not been kind to me. It will all depend on how many games there will be for the last week. As I said before, 'Sunshine' is in 2nd place. Moving up to 3rd was 'MattHawk'. Fromm there down 5 places, they are all within 67 points of each other. Could be some major moving around next week.. I just hope it ain't me. Still having a firm hold on last is 'M'Town'. I will put my neck on the line and predict that he will not move out of that spot. We have a new person in 2nd to last. 'its' grabbed the spot from 'Hawkinator'. 'Hawkinator' is now in the 3rd to last spot. I don't see those spots changing next week unless there are 50 games. Here are the movers (up) and the shakers (down) this week. 'Mack Attack' moved from 7th up to 4th. 'HawkDoc57' moved from 10th up to 7th. And 'Booty Picker' moved from 11th to 8th. on the downward slide, 'Butta' shaked from 6th all the way down to 13th. 'TheLoneClone' shaked himself out of the money by going from 3rd down to 5th.
There you go, 2nd to the last week in the pick em's. Here is how everyone else did:
