PERSONAL COMMENT:

As you know I always place the disclaimer of EDT.   THANK GOODNESS, we now can get up to morning dawn, and go to bed AFTER, it gets dark.  Everyone I know appreciates EST.   In fact for many years we stayed on EST year round.  Until we got a DICTATOR, GOVERNOR.  Who as far as anyone knows never had to work a day in his life.  When the EDT issue came up he didn’t want it to be a referendum because it would not pass.  When it did not pass the state lawmakers  failed to  pass it HE had the voting board paused for at least a day.  (While he and his buddies ,persuaded , enough of the opponents to vote it in.  Like most states our lawmakers are not representative of the majority working class, BUT are of the upper crust.  Needless to say several did not serve another term, due to their turning their backs on the promise they made to not support EDT.

For us it is harder than some of you.  You see we are located in the CENTRAL Time Zone.  But many years ago our state opted to adopt Eastern Time Zone.   By doing this we (in reality), moved 1 hour ahead of the SUN.   Most people were satisfied with this move. As our neighboring states changed time we were in sync with them.  Not a real big thing.  BUT , when we go to “EDT” that puts us TWO {2) , hours ahead of the sun. 

To sum up.  EST moves us from CST, up 1 time zone. When we are forced to move to EDT that moves us to ATLANTIC TIME ZONE.  Only a small portion of one state in the U.S.A is actually in the AST zone. so it doesn’t observe AST, except when the EDT kicks in then it is AST. 

IN closing can any of you tell me on what and when you plan to spend that extra hour of daylight you saved all summer?  They have a truth in lending law,  Why not a truth in Daylight Saving?  Instead of saying EDT why not call it the real thing AST?  Answer: TOO many people might ask WHY are we on AST, or CDT, on EST. etc,etc.

PATRIOTS: HC Bill Belichick just passed BEARS HC George Hallas to become the second winningest coach in NFL history after winning his 325th game.  Can he catch and surplus number 1 winningest coach DOLPHINS Don Shula with  347 wins? 

For those of you who are new here. This is  how confidence ranking goes, let me explain.
For those of you who are new here. This is  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.   You add up the TOTAL CORRECT PICKS.. That would be your score.  We use the Monday night (Last game played) as a TIE BREAKER.  The tie is broken by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating teams) final score, without going over.

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

1.  HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a –14 score

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

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.

IF YOU SEE I MADE A MIS-COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL  FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.
