Just one more week to go and the standings are very tight for who could win it all!>
And as usual, I'm right in the middle.
Hey, average is better than my normal near-last
Only 8 games to pick this week, but with the standings very tight, one game here or there could decide the ultimate winner, so pick carefully.

Next year, because the last 2 weeks have so few games to pick, I will set it up for 2 weeks to be dropped. Still, if everyone picks each week then those weeks could still mean something. Any suggestions on improvements would be appreciated.
I like the way it was run. No need to get rid of the last two weeks. I think I would've been in the hunt if I could just remember to pick every week.
I finished in the top half!
I'll get the colors up shortly
EDIT: Congrats to Obese! Enjoy your colors!
Wow, I won? In that case, here's my speech.
I started this game knowing I was destined to win. I got there despite toiling around in the middle for the first 5 weeks. I prevailed despite putting tons of confidence points on Cal and receiving losses. All I had to do was put something called effort into my picks, at only the cost of something called a life. I stumbled to the top, but I was there nonetheless.
That was a great game played by everyone. Good job guys!
