Just this week, a package arrived from Madding at Cards on Cards with the booby prize for worst place in his most recent college bowl game pick ’em contest. This is the second time I’ve come in last; should have had a third time last year but I was
foiled saved on the last game of the bowl season. But this time the prize package had no junk cards thrown in! Pity, maybe?
I’d feel bad if I was intentionally attempting to lose, but really, I’m not. My strategy has pretty much been PICK: B1G conference teams, Mizzou, UCLA; PICK AGAINST: USC, Notre Dame, SEC conference — any other match-ups are picked on my whim. For the most part, B1G teams have made this acceptance speech possible.
Very nice pile — thanks again, Madding!
