    This'll have to be quick. I've been sitting on an ice cube for 10 minutes, wisely preparing for "my" stint on TAR, and - wouldn't you know it - I've been called to a meeting. Need to go dry my fanny with the hand blower. Picturing that, are you?

    Theme for this week's results, "He giveth and he taketh away" ... many of you did well in Pick 'Em, but gave it away on Rank 'Em. And vice versa, but not as much.

    Nearly an upside down week, with many of you dramatically changing positions. itofan took the biggest tumble, from 2nd (tie) to 23rd (tie). itofan, you can blame it on sk8pics, who took almost the same trip ... in the opposite. 19th (tie) to 1st (tie)!

    Only one of last week's top 9, FiveRinger is still in the top 10! FR retains first place, well in a tie now actually with the aforementioned sk8pics and rfisher*, but her future has dimmed somewhat due to J&C's elimination. *rfisher? rreally?

    More topsy turvyness: The nine or so who were clustered in a 10th place tie last week ... all rose into the top 10 this week. Weird stuff.

    Ah, but there is some comforting sameness. Lilia A and merrywidow began their annual ascent, and are tied for 4th with some obscure people we don't need to mention individually. We'll just call them the Liashenkos. And genevieve, bless her heart, was the sole player to hold firm her position!

    Considering that I fell a place last week, that's an improvement!

    It's my fake to the left to throw you all off guard before I take my rightful place at the bottom. Go bet on me now.

    Wow 13th place all to myself and right in the middle. I wish I had been tied for 4th too so I could be obscure.

    I will miss Jonathan and Connor, but they did it to themselves by not giving up on the sledding task earlier.

    RESULTS FOR WEEK 3

    Shake up! Yawny Volleyballers tripped up very few of you (average deviation from their finish of short of 3 ordinals), but two of you had them first, translating to a -7 score. They being PrincessLeppard, who feel a few slots in the standings for her crime, and genevieve, who fortunately didn't fall at all in the standings.

    Lingering in the Bad News category for a bit longer ... ... four of you are now down to half (2) of your Pick 'Ems: minuet, Jamesy, itofan, and the aforementioned PL. Also, besting PL in the "biggest drop" in the standings category was sk8pics -- 1st tie to 10th tie.

    Now for a little Good News. As KikiSashaFan exclaimed in the TAR proper thread, she nearly nailed the volleyballers correct exit position -- 8th. Well, that was KSF's only small mistake, as she was perfect in the Rank 'Em this week. 10 points earned of 10 points available! This kickass effort also earned KSF the "biggest rise" of the week -- 10 spots, 14th tie to 4th tie.

    KSF is one of 8 of you still holding all four Pick 'Em selections ... joining oleada, Lara, KHenry, Prancer, Lilia A, merrywidow, and shan. In Dick Button terms, this should hold each of you in good stead for the remainder of this game.

    I'm still near the top? How is this possible? I did redeem my reputation in the NHK prediction contest, but I'm properly ashamed of my performance here. Next week for sure.

    Ack! 2 weeks in a row I lost a team. The couple teams are hanging on and throwing my predictions way off!

    I'm still happy to be top ten, LOL! I'll have to look up my predictions before next week's episode just so I know how to root properly!

    I definitely underestimated Gary and Mallory, they're doing very well. In the first episode I saw them as the happy team that is very pleasant to watch but not very competitive. Good for them for proving me wrong (even if it does mean me taking a big plunge later on )

    Team I overestimated: Jill and Thomas, he seems to be the strength but not in the attitude department. I don't know if they'll win if they continue getting lost.

    Nick and Vicky: I insist they're this season's Dandrew. Bring on the marching .
    Having said that, it's Chad and Stephanie the team that is always just hanging in there. They've been bottom three how many times? That's gonna hurt me (but I don't mind seeing them leave early)


    So yeah, I'm in first...but likely not for long. Oh well, it's still fun. It's always fun

    PML at how Nick and Vicki are messing up everyone's predictions.

    Giving you a bonus point or two is like putting sequins on Plushenko. It'd take thousands to improve things enough to bother with it.

    But yes, good job on the name of the delicacy. Would also have taken Kentucky Fried Sheepshead, grammar be damned.
