Here we are for a third time around. The Idiots Pool is back again, beginning the march to Idiot Bowl III, and the awarding of the esteemed Miserable Shitehawk Trophy.
Congrats to Same Sad Echo for winning the BHMC. This was a complete non-surprise, he’s been leading the overall league for weeks now and was the first to clinch a playoff spot. While not the leader in overall correct pics, this handsome genius played his moron opponents like a fiddle and made his picks count when it…
Here are the real scores, which I definitely didn’t fuck up by recording the Vikings-Lions game as a 29-28 Lions win instead of a 28-19 Lions loss. Fuck it all.
Here are the fucking scores, Jesse. You tied.
Here are the highlights from Week 4:
OK, since all of the pool info is available at The Idiots Pool Page, I think I’m going to settle in writing only one post a week here, usually on Monday nights, just highlighting the noteworthy notes of note from the week that was.
Another eventful week of PICKS-gathering for me. This week, we had two Idiots (@SameSadEcho and @MikeBeauvais) make the same picks head-to-head. As per unwritten league rules, when that happens, I give both competitors the right to change any picks they wish to. Neither did, so if you’re betting on this match, take…
I’m going to cut down the weekly number of Idiots Pool posts on this site by one, seeing as the Idiots Pool page has all of the results and other pertinent info.
Thanks to my incessant badgering, all PICKS are in for Week 1 - even a few hours early!
The teams are set for another great year ahead of PICKS.
Well, even though I promised I wouldn’t, I’m starting up the Idiots Pool again for 2015. I’m hopeful that, having built the spreadsheet infrastructure for running the league already, it won’t kill me this year.
I'm on vacation, so I didn't watch the game, but that didn't stop the Idiots Pool from whimpering its way to a flaccid conclusion.
After a long and inconsequential season, we are down to the final two competitors.
And then there were two: Seattle's improbable comeback exiled both Messrs. Rodgers from the playoffs, while the Patriots blowout of the Colts matched SbV8's one-sided scoreline against rubdirt.
The penultimate week of competition is here in Idiotland (sorry, no Pro Bowl picks), and I'm exhausted but still standing.
We ain't come here to play school.
A sad day for teapot dictators everywhere as your beloved commissioner was eliminated from the Idiots Pool yesterday, along with three other entities of some kind.
These playoff weeks have been great. If I do the pool again next year, I think I'll limit it to eight people.
What's left to say? Here are the scores.
