Johnny comes marching home

The results for this week’s CiCi’s Pizza NFL picks contest are in and as the title suggests, Johnny has come marching home, as Johnny is this week’s winner in another photo finish that required the total points to be used again as the tie-breaker. Something told me this contest was going to end up getting tight and it also might be getting the contestants tight as well.

Here are the results from this week’s race. Big Jim lead all participants going 11-2 but since Jim is one of our registered experts he is not eligible for the prize. Rob began the season as a participant and then became a winner and now sits on our expert panel and is part of the board of directors. I did find it interesting that one of our players, Stu I think it was, went with Big Jim’s picks last week and came up empty as Rob finished way ahead of Jim, and then this week Stu switches to Rob’s selections and Big Jim goes 11-2. Go Figure.

Here are the figures:Johnny and JA Joey finished in a dead heat, both players going 10-3 and then the Sunday night game was the decider with the Johnny going with 32 points and Joey saying 21 and the total being 59. One of our players picked Denver to win and had the total at 60 but his overall record was only 9-4.

The final countdown:Big Jim 11-2, Johnny and Joey 10-3, Big C 9-4, Dan 9-4, jasonb 9-4, Marshall 9-4, Rick 9-4, PagePirates44 8-5, April 7-6, Chuckyd 7-6, Rob 7-6, Stu 7-6…..

We will do it all again next week and until then, Good Luck on your picks and don’t call Paul if you want to win it all. You may be in for an unsuccessful Fall. Things could get better if you squall for Rue Pall at 790 the Ball. Better yet, go see Doug the Greek at the Four Seasons Mall.

Who is this guy, “Billy the Blogging Poet”? I can beat this dude at Rhyming every timing, and if you don’t believe me call my agent, Carl E. Simon.

    The next thing you know you’ll be saying this man’s last name is Pid? Where are we going here? I am the moderator on duty and I need to get to the bottom of these things. Did South Carolina lose to Vanderbilt and the did Gamecooks
    only beat the Heels 21-15? Did the Old Dog Coach have his men at #5 in the country and they can’t defeat Vandy and they only stopped a UNC-CH team by
    six points and the Heels are pretty much freshman and sophs? Who was that
    team that beat High Point Central Michigan 70-14? I think they were wearing
    orange or some wild color like that.

    We gotta know.

    We’re saving that discussion for the college rankings update. I’m looking forward to seeing where the Wolfies will be since they began the run for the Mack Brown Memorial State Championship this past weekend. I’m assuming UNC’s “open date” will help them ascend in the rankings given the losses some of the state’s “powerhouses” absorbed. I guess we’ll have to open up the ole non-qualifier discussion again this week.

    I agree with you guys, and in my humble opinion I would like to add that everything that Todd Ellis touches turns to mold. I can’t stand him or the old butthole coach Spurrier. Go Commodores!!!!!!!!!!
