I see you have 93 as of tonigt just like me.  I've been sitting back giving these guys some space for the past 3 weeks.  It's like a horse race.  You make your move at the right time and go for broke.  I'm setting to make a move up the ladder with you.  It's a race to 100 now and the riff-raff are out.  Best of luck.  Maybe you and me at the wire.  K

Rollyo,  gl to you.  make no mistake though, i will be rolling at just the right time.  8-4 last 12.  been in the top area since day 1.  remember, one must approach this like a horserace not a sprint.  i'm confident i'll finish in top 10 and probably be making picks to win on the day first place is decided.  hope to be lucky that day.  you most definitley are hot with your picks but your swoon is most likely coming sooner than you think.  not hoping for that but just a fact.  gl though

Painting  a picture of a 6 furlong or 1+mile horserace where you hide behind front pack and make your move to top at right time without running out of gas before the finish line rather than a quarterhorse sprint. Good question though.  I believe it is too hard to lead from beginning to end.  Best to get to very top around 170-180 and finish it.  By that time many who have done very well will have faltered to less than 60% win rate.  It will take about 62+% to win this with this group.  That's been my philosophy.  By the way PDV we're looking good, hiding right behind at 107 (4 behind).  Me and u at wire.  gl.

good job pdv.  i'm at 115 and been getting screwed pretty regularly so don't feel too bad.  had new mexico college hoops last night -5.  they're up 11 with a minute and half to go and win by 4.  i can only imagine how that happened.  it will all even out in end and hope to be within 5 at 150 mark and then make a move.  gl to you K

great pick on Navy under PDV.  me and you only two i've seen take it so far.  don't get too far ahead of me.  we'll meet at 170-180(i'm superstitious that's why i'm sticking with this).  but really, good pick on under.  gl K

screwed again.  george washington leads all game by 5-12 points and blows lead.  tied 30 seconds left.  they win by 4.  guess how many i'm giving away?  you guessed 4 1/2 pts.  its gotta even out eventually but in the last 3 weeks i've lost 6-8 of these and won 1.  things gotta turn around right?

I got off to a horseshit start, but I am 31-9 the last10 days. Guess I have no shot at making top 10, maybe next time.

Good going PDV.  If I didn't know better i would think you were trying to lose me in this race.  You had another good day today (if philly finishes) it looks like.  Of course I can only assume i got screwed again as I just saw i got a push at over 191 in cavs game today.  didn't see it but let me guess.  They were 191 with 3 minutes to go and missed 4 lay-ups, 5 free throws, and the refs wiped off a 3 pointer at the buzzer that should have counted but since it didn't matter there was no replay.  Am I close?  Wouldn't be surprised.  At least Villinova lost and it wasn't a screw job.  Don't take off without me.  If you decide you want us to take lead before 170 make sure you let me know.  Me and you 1&2 at the wire.  GL tomorrow,K

Just checked todays picks.  Not good.  Wasn't planning on any more 1-3 days.  I may be done deal now.  But let me make sure i'm seeing this correct.  i got Mavericks over and they score 35 in first quarter(im genius) and 36 in 2nd quarter & 3rd quarter combined(im dumb behind).  exactly why i hate nba.  boston Montreal go scoreless for first 19 minutes hockey and score one, 2 scored in quarter 2(another in final minute), and blow up in 3rd quarter while i have the under.  And Arizona Cardinals trying to set a modern day nfl turnover record with 12 to's tonight?  Gonna keep playin and see if I can at least get a hoodie.  Gl PDV and others

PDV,  congrats on grabbing second in the chase to catch Ash.  i hope you didn't take off too early.  I believe both of you will hit the wall and a dry spell before we get to 200.  I'm not hoping that, just think its still too early to be out front.  Gl to both u this weekend. K

I start making my move to #1 today.  Should be getting there between 185-190.  Then it's a 4-5 day race between me and 3 others.  Gl all.  Should be fun from here on out.
