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!
