  1. Yeah, you're right. Just looked it up. OK then. I'm not sure anymore.
  2. Was he? I haven't seen Agents of SHIELD since like halfway through the Ghostrider season. They had a horrible pacing problem and I got bored.
  3. Maybe I had a different take. I saw the trailer and immediately thought, "Mysterio and Absorbing Man!"
  4. Fun trailer. Kinda spoilery.

    Go Fund Me for my brother in law's sister

    So...your sister-in-law? Nevermind. Just figured it out. Took my brain a minute. :P

    Your (analog) game haul for Christmas

    How is Rising Sun? It's on my wish list but I haven't pulled the trigger.
  7. Logically I like the direction the industry is going with this. Personally I hate it.
  8. I expect a bunch of post/edits right before the deadline. :P
  9. OK I actually LOL'd at the example conversation in that article. Wonderful.

  11. In a bittersweet MGT moment, a big bet on his beloved Seahawks lifts thewhyteboar back to the top of the pack! The lead is retaken, but only by the slimmest of margins! With only 3 weeks left the bets are getting riskier as the stakes get higher. Who'll be left standing when the dust settles in the end?! -= WILD CARD RESULTS =- Feature Game: Seattle Seahawks @ Dallas Cowboys (-2.5) The Cowboys managed to hold on to eek out a victory on the field, but fail to cover the points, losing by a score of 22-21.5 (24-2.5). Bets on Seattle win. -= QUESTIONS =- 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Seahawks touchdown, Seahawks field goal, Seahawks safety, Cowboys touchdown, Cowboys field goal, Cowboys safety, or other? ($7,000 for the correct call) A first quarter Dallas field goal kicked off the scoring in this one. Calls on a Cowboys FG get it. Biggie was the only player to get this one right. 2) How many total turnovers (combined, both teams) will occur in the Feature Game? ($8,000 for the correct number) Rayne threw an interception for the game's lone turnover (1). Nobody guessed this. 3) Of the 4 Wild Card games this weekend, how many will be decided by 8 or fewer points? ($6,000 for the correct answer) 3 of the 4 wild card games were decided by a single possession, with only Colts vs Texans having a bigger margin. 4) Who will be the most penalized team this weekend in terms of number of penalties (not yards)? ($6,000 for the correct team) In what turned out to be a relatively flag-light weekend all around, the Texans were your biggest violators, getting flagged for 8 accepted penalties. Bets on Houston win. RedSoxFan9 was the only player to get this one right. 5) Pick the winners ($7,000 for each correct pick, $9,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Indianapolis @ Houston L.A. Chargers @ Baltimore Philadelphia @ Chicago Bad week for the home teams as all the road warriors go home happy. Nobody called all 3 correctly to earn the bonus. 6) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards over Wild Card Weekend? ($15,000 for each player named correctly, $20,000 bonus if both names are called) Marlon Mack ran over Houston to the tune of 148 yards and Allen Robinson caught 143 to lead all receivers in Chicago's losing effort versus Philly. Nobody called either player. -= THE LEADERBOARD =- @thewhyteboar - $359,550 @BasemntDweller2 - $330,100 @RedSoxFan9 - $273,400 Slug - $200,000 @SFLUFAN - $151,000 @Keyser_Soze - $148,300 @Alpha1Cowboy - $78,500 @Jose - $65,400 @Biggie - $39,000 @Greatoneshere - $21,000 @mikechorney - $17,000 @Kal-El814 - $10,500 @johnny - $9,100 Remember; it's never too late to start (OK, so maybe now it's kind of too late..)! Everyone begins with $1,000 no matter which week you jump in! Good luck to everyone in the Divisional Round! Feature Game and Questions follow this post! -= THE RULES =- 1. You make your bet and answer the questions simply by posting on the thread each week with your pick for the featured game along with your bet, followed by your answers to the prediction questions. 2. Everyone starts with $1,000. If a user doesn't start until week 3, they still start with $1,000. Your best bet it to get in early and play every week. 3. If you somehow reach $0 you are not out of the competition. You can't bet on the feature game during weeks that you are broke, but you can answer the prediction questions and hope to earn cash to gamble the following week. 4. IMPORTANT: I will set a deadline for getting your entries for the week in (usually before kick-off of that week's first game). It is imperative that you make your post before the deadline. The entry thread will be locked at the deadline so if you don't get your entry in by then you lose out on the chance to make money that week. 5. I work full time AND coach youth football AND go to school when I can AND have a near crippling gaming addiction AND probably drink too much. Responsibilities and personality flaws allowing, I will attempt to post the results and the next week's game/questions each Tuesday, as early as possible. Keep in mind though that there may be some wackiness here and there based on my schedule and hangovers. Pay attention. 6. For the official recording of stats/yardage NFL.com will be used. Whatever their site says on Tuesday morning is what counts. No whining. 8. Accounts created within the current calendar month are not eligible to play and any entries from such accounts will not be considered. -= Previous Weeks =- Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Week 7 Week 8 Week 9 Week 10 Week 11 Week 12 Week 13 Week 14 Week 15 Week 16 Week 17 Wild Card Round
