    Didn't Nick and Starr win the first leg, too? I think that's why I didn't put them in my predictions. :wideeyes: I thought it was beginner's luck.

    Of course I will. Probably even more, since I'll be all :mitchell: about not being part of the predictions contest.

    :COP: The committee has assembled and has just ruled that you may enter under one stipulation: You must take a -10 for Andie and Jenna in your Rank 'Em. So, take this mulligan and you're in. Harsh, yes, but you've been a very bad girl.

    In? If so, go ahead and submit a slate (leave A&J/10th blank). We'd miss you if you don't play.

    It was because I edited the penalty from 11 points to 10, wasn't it?

    ooh, and shan just tweeted me

    LOL Shan doesn't have to worry about being last. This is the first year I've actually entered the contest. I suck at stuff like this. Like I put Nicky and Vicky to exit this week so I'm already behind.

    Don't jinx me!!!

    Seriously, I'm sure it was dumb luck that I correctly predicted the first team eliminated. Its all downhill from here. :p

    Speaking of jinxed, I just wrote up my predictions, and when I went to post, my browser closed :drama:

    And now, here is my "I've been a very bad girl" late prediction list:

    Pick 'Em:
    Jill/Thomas
    Brooke/Claire
    Katie/Rachel
    Chad/Stephanie :blah:

    Rank 'Em!
    1) Katie/Rachel
    2) Jill/Thomas
    3) Nat/Kat
    4) Connor/Jon
    5) Brooke/Claire
    6) Chad/Stephanie
    7) Michael/Kevin
    8) Nick/Vicki
    9) Gary/Mallory

    Q1: YES!
    Q2: YES! :shuffle:

    Thanks Beefy! :cheer2:

    Everybody somehow made it through the work week without knowing the standings. :D Super job at that!

    With the elimination of an obviously weak team, there isn't much to report insofar as dramatic standings news. Just a few things:

    1. genevieve made some headway despite her 10-point "very bad girl" tardiness penalty. She'll be counting a shirtless Phil, for sure, if she's to challenge.

    2. Flatfoote was the first to lose a Pick 'Em -- Andie & Jenna. Doesn't bode well.

    3. Kiki paid dearly for having the mother/daughter team 5th in Rank 'Em. 5 points lost, ouch!

    4. Many of you had a near-perfect Rank 'Em score, lacking only that last point from surprising Michael & Kevin (3rd) to get a "10".

    Anyway, it's stil anyone's game, so don't fret it even if you're down below. Long way to go!

    It's early. There's plenty of time for us to plummet to the basement. :)

    I'm strapping my helmet on tight and putting on the knee pads since I'm sure I'll be tumbling down the stairs to said basement in the coming weeks..

    I know that there are always surprises on the race. The biggest one would be if I were to actually win (as far as this game goes)! :D

    Disclaimer :shuffle:

    This week's results brought to you Old Eyes, Inc., with a generous grant from the American Public School System. Yeh, there were a couple of minor difficulties within last week's results. For one, genevieve has slipped a spot from last place (24th) to last place (25th) ... upon the discovery that my counting of one of the "ties" was off by one, last week, and therefore we have 25 entrants vice 24. :eek:

    :wideeyes: For two, I missed recording two of FiveRinger's Pick 'Em points. This discovery combined with her strong score this week propelled FiveRinger into 1st frigging place! :encore: An aside: I'll miss a Pick 'Em point or three occasionally, due to this convoluted Excel spreadsheet and that old eyes and math thing, but it'll come back to roost the next week.

    :) Along with FiveRinger, Fridge Break and minuet are really rocking the Pick 'Em category.

    ;) Meanwhile, Prancer and itofan are likely rueing the non-elimination of Kevin & Michael, as they'd have hit that dead-on in the Rank 'Em. Conversely, a few of you (I'm lookin' at you, KHenry and merrywidow!) are pretty darned glad for said NEL. (For at least a week :shuffle:)

    Lots of movement, as is expected early-on:

    My top 4 picks came in 6,7,8 & 9th. Only because of the non elimination have I been able to keep them all in the race. Somehow I'm not feeling very confident for this season.:wideeyes:

    :wideeyes: OMG! :huh: Are there STFU smilies? Or a pat yourself on the back? This is the first time that I have ever been first, or remotely close!!! Wow--somebody's going to make me think that I actually made some decent picks this season. I'm excited.

    But, I expect to slide down towards the basement. It's where I've been the most comfortable! :D

    I blame Vickie. If she'd stuffed Nick in that wheelbarrow or wrapped that wheel around his neck, they'd have been last where they were supposed to be.

    But, unfortunately, they'd still be in the race since this was an NEL. Hopefully, their asses will be out next week. It'd make me and most people playing our game this season really happy.

    There's going to be a fight for last place. Gen has tried to get a lock by having that extra penalty, but I'm confident I can bump her up.

    Hmmm, did I mention? There's an Anna Trebunskaya :glamor: look-alike BONUS, so go ahead with that Annawannabe makeoer you're mulling over, and your race-to-the-bottom ends pronto.

    Can we get a do-over? I'm sure just about everybody would be extremely happy if Chad would just disappear? I kept hoping he would fly off of one of those sleds and land in outerspace.

    I would have loved that, especially considering I had Chad & Stephanie going out at this stage in my Rank 'Em's! :EVILLE:
