Survivor streak ends at 18 for user, 'was like a death in the family'
Covers Contests Streak Survivor user terry32, a Costco employee from Illinois, had his remarkable streak of picks come to an end this past weekend.
His streak ended after 18 correct picks in a row, when he selected Oregon with the points this past Saturday, who got blown out by the Arizona Wildcats in Arizona 42-16.
"I lost my streak and it was like a death in the family," terry32 told Covers. "Why I picked Oregon on the road laying all those points I'll never know, I guess I thought they had something to play for."
But for terry32 it was more than just a contest, his whole town got involved, he said.
"I'd go to the gas station and people would ask me who I was going to pick," he said. "Guys would buy me drinks at the bar because they were following and betting my picks."
Terry won $1000 when he correctly picked Iowa (-16) in the Hawkeye's 38-14 victory over Purdue on Nov. 9 for his 17th correct pick in a row. His streak started all the way back on Aug. 19 when he picked the Boston Red Sox over the San Francisco Giants.
"It took a while to get my hat and hoodie, but my $1000 was deposited in my pay pal right away."
