CUBS WIN!!! CUBS WIN!!! What an exciting WORLD SERIES. One of the best in ages. Two teams with long abscenes from a TITLE. battled down to the wire. The Cubs join an elite club of teams who have come from a 3-1 deficit to WIN THE WORLD SERIES. It took all 7 games and top that off with an EXTRA INNING. What a way to end the seanson. AND SO FAR I HAVE HEARD OF NO MIS-BEHAVIOR ON THE PART OF EITHER TEAMS FANS. Job well done by both teams.
RECAP: This makes the second week in a row we have had a game end in a tie. Last week it was, tow of the best teams. Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals, which ended 6 to 6. (I would be amiss if I fail to mention Seattles QB was and is still playing hurt; HOWEVER, moved his team down the field for what SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE WINNING FG. This week was a mild surprise with the Washington Redskins playing to a tie wiht the Cincinnati Bengals. There were three OT games. The afore mentioned Redskins and Bengals 27-27. Oakland Raiders, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with the Raiders pulling out a 6 pt win. Sunday nights game Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys. Dallas scored a 29 -23 win.
There were 2 games decided by 3 or less points. Jets over Browns 31-28. Falcons over Packers 33-32.
How about that? Three (3) OT games and a ONE (1) pointer. Pretty good games, I must say.
At this time I would like to point out (not counting the non game tie), I only missed TWO (2) games this week. HOW DID YOU DO?
REMEMBER TO SET YOUR CLOCK BACK 1, (one), HOUR, SUNDAY MORNING AT 2 am, (If you live in one of the states which belive they can save TIME, and use it later, or whatever their mythical belief is.
For those of you who do not know how confidence ranking goes, let me explain.
If we were playing an office pool,(which we ARE NOT). The object is to score the most points. To obtain the score YOU rank the teams by how confident you are a team will win its game. EXAMPLE: Say this week we have 16 games. The team you are most confident will win you would assign the number 16 and follow down to the team you are least confident in and assign that number 1. We use the Monday night game as a TIE BREAKER. The tie is broke by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating tams) final score, without going over.
If we were playing this is how my sheet would look; My pick will be in bold Capital letters. you can use circling, underlining, or highlighting. I will show my correct points in Bold
YOU can adopt the scoring described above. Or, the optional method. A negative score for missed games. We will continue to get a positive score for correct predictions. EXAMPLE: if you scored 1 pt on the first game and you had 15 pt on the second game and lost you would still have a Positive 1. HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a -14 score.
I will fill in my picks Thursday. Until then feel free to:
Just copy and paste for your own Fun Pool Use. Or to see if you can beat me.
