Harold Lounge Football Pool: Week 14 update

Welcome to the semester break. Looky what we’ve got goin’ on with our pool. 14 weeks in the books:

Player Week 11 Week 12 Week 13 Week 14 Total
marta lacor 11* 13* 11* 14* 132
PhiloDave 7 13* 11* 10 132
Chicago Realist 11* 9 11* 13 131
Mathissexy 8 5 7 12 111
MrDrProf 0 12 9 0 6

I’ve trimmed the chart to show the activity from the last 4 weeks. The asterisk indicates the weekly points leader.

Wow, wow, wow! Marta has come out of nowhere to make this one heck of a finish! What a tight race. No, I ain’t rulin’ Mathissexy out yet. These last two weeks are gonna be interesting. If it’s one thing I’ve learned, is that there is no such thing as a sure win for any team (that’s right, I’m talkin’ ’bout them Packers too!). I’ve also learned that ain’t no such thing as loyalty to a team that’s lost their quarterback when you’re trying to win this pool.

Still want to join just for the heck of it?

More updates to follow as needed. Anypeep care to put Monopoly money on the Packers going undefeated? I got a blue 50 that says those Dolphins will pop that bottle of champagne. Again.

Harold Lounge Football Pool: Week 11 update

Gobble, gobble to all you peeps enjoying your Thanksgiving break!

Here’s an update on our football pool now that 11 weeks are in the books and today starts week 12:

Player Week 8 Week 9 Week 10 Week 11 Total
Chicago Realist 8 8 8 11* 98
PhiloDave 10* 8 8 7 98
marta lacor 9 10* 9 11* 94
Mathissexy 9 8 7 8 87
MrDrProf 9 8 11* 0 45

I’ve trimmed the chart eliminating the first seven weeks. The asterisk indicates the weekly points leader.

What happened? As much as I’d like to pat myself on the back for equaling PhiloDave’s total, I am slightly concerned for two reasons:
1. I still need PhiloDave to have a couple more off days and then I’ll be able to pad my lead. Yeah, right.
2. Don’t look now, but I was pro-phetic about marta lacor. Dang! Where would I be if she had not missed that first week.

I know Mathissexy is calculating his moves. Don’t let that score fool you.

My big concern is with today’s game. Do I go with the Packers and stay tied with PhiloDave or do I go with the Lions and go one point ahead (assuming Detroit win), knowing that PhiloDave won’t pick against his team? Of course if the Packers win, then that opens the door for the Bears to take second place. Decisions, decisions…

The offer to join will remain open for those who want to get ready for the playoffs or just want/need a break from your family gathering.

More updates to follow as needed. (So kids, is it time now to discuss a potential 16-0 regular season for the Packers? They still have a game with the Bears.)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Harold Lounge Football Pool: Week 9 update

First, shame, shame, shame on all you peeps that picked the Eagles over the Bears.
Second, double-shame on you pool players! (Yes, I was the only one that favored the home team [upon further review, there were a couple of other “smart” players]; but to be completely honest, I was also the only pool player that picked the Chargers over the Packers – and I almost had that one point, if not for the self-inflicted mistakes by that San Diego team-and they were at home too!)

OK, quick update as of week 9 – on the NFL calendar:

Player Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Week 7 Week 8 Week 9 Total
PhiloDave 7 13* 11* 11* 8 7 8* 10* 8 83
Chicago Realist 8* 11 8 11* 9* 8 8* 8 8 79
marta lacor 0 9 10 11* 9* 9 7 9 10* 74
Mathissexy 6 8 8 8 8 10* 7 9 8 72
MrDrProf 0 0 0 10 0 0 7 9 8 34

The asterisk indicates the weekly points leader.

As you can see, PhiloDave remains the overall leader. I’m just hangin’ tight, waiting for him to break his concentration (how long can he really remain focused-finals week might be the real test!)
Check out marta lacor – comin’ up strong. I told ya she was givin’ us a head start. IMHO, she’d be in the lead otherwise.
There sits Mathissexy, waitin’ to pounce on the leaders knowin’ that it takes but ONE week’s picks to invert the rankings.
MrDrProf, marta lacor’s clone is doin good. It makes me want to alter the rules for next year and let peeps have multiple players. Ah, what am I sayin, there were no rules to begin, other than to pick a username (or two) and join.

The offer to join will remain open for those who want to get ready for the playoffs.

I hope PhiloDave forgets about those upcoming Thursday night games and gets too busy prepin’ for Thanksgiving so we can all gain ground.

More updates to follow as needed. (So kids, too early to discuss a potential 16-0 regular season for the Packers?)

Harold Lounge Football Pool: Week 5 update

5 weeks down. 11 to go. Here are the standings:

Player Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Total
PhiloDave 7 13* 11* 11* 8 50
Chicago Realist 8* 11 8 11* 9* 47
marta lacor 0 9 10 11* 9* 39
Mathissexy 6 8 8 8 8 38
MrDrProf 0 0 0 10 0 1

 

That there asterisk indicates the weekly points leader.
As you can see, it’s a close race! Marta makin’ up some ground (she’s my kinda competitor). PhiloDave still in the lead (quick, flood him with comments on The Lounge-just to slow him down. Dang!). I’ll stay in the thick of it, thank you very much (not sure how long it will last) . Mathissexy is lookin’ to make a strong finish (I think he’s doin this slow start thing on purpose).

Still time to join. Seriously, better late than never. Do it for the fun. It’s not really about the points, right? OK, maybe just a little.

Harold Lounge Football Pool: Lookin’ ahead to week 3

I’m not gonna provide weekly updates, but since there’s a BIG NFC North game this weekend in Chicago, I thought I’d give ya the points standings from our HWC Pool.

Each player gets a point for pickin’ the winner of each game. 2 weeks down, 14 to go.

Marta – 9 points this week (Not bad after missing week 1. You go Marta!)
Mathissexy – 8 points this week. 14 total (You and junior done good)
PhiloDave – 13 points this week. 20 total (PhiloDave is this week’s points leader and overall leader. Nice goin’ boss! You get the ‘We’re Number 1’ foam finger. It comes in bright HWC orange!)
MrDrProf – 0 points (A new member of the pool. Like Marta, he’s givin’ us a head start. I’ll take it.)
Chicago Realist – 11 points this week 19 total (Did I say I was stickin’ with Chicago for week 2? My bad. ‘Sal right. Still feelin’ lucky. Perhaps they’ll have an O-line this weekend. Perhaps they’ll expose the stinky cheese of a Packers defense. Perhaps I’m dreamin’. Only down by one point overall. Rollin’ the dice…)

Harold Lounge Football Pool: Week 1

Hello football fans. As you know I got that pool thing goin’ with CBS Sports. I thought I’d give y’all an update and encourage you to join if you’ve not done so yet.

Here’s where we stand:

Each player got a point for every game they picked right.

Marta – 0 points (Marta may have been givin’ us all a head start. I’ll take it.)
Mathissexy – 6 points (That’s ok, 15 weeks to go. Let junior give you a hand for week 2.)
PhiloDave – 7 points (What can I say? Logic and sports do not mix. (FYI, I may have to go with GB this coming Sunday. *&%$!))
Chicago Realist – 8 points (I’m stunned, but like I said, 15 weeks to go. Stickin’ with Chicago for week 2. Only ’cause I gots that one point lead. And I’m feelin’ kinda lucky. Can you say UPSET? In New Orleans?!)

That’s it. As you can see, there is still time to join. Make your picks and talk some trash. All are welcome to participate!
