Im currently 1 game behind metfan in monthly wins.  Best of luck man, hope one of us wins it!  I started playing in May and my record has been 101-64 with one hat, I hope my good luck keeps on thru the 31st!

Looks like it is down to you, me and creator.  Crazy that he has only been playing since December.  He has the winning % advantage though, need him to lose.  Only a few more days left, good luck to you metfan you deserve it after playing so long.

Ouch, tough tough loss metfan, lakers had an 18pt lead and then the hornets started draining threes to cover.

Man, when it was 18 with 5:50 left I was about to go to bed in a good mood! Then Ryan Anderson started making it rain and Autin River swas getting uncontested layups!! That and the Lakers couldn't hit their free throws. Should have at least won by double digits.........but thats how it goes.  2 more days, i see you already posted Duke! good luck.

Yeah, feel like Duke is fired up after losing big to Miami a few days ago, they beat GT by 20 last game while Wake lost by 20.  I need creator to lose one to get the top spot, I'm going to be on edge these next 2 days!  But if we drop a game you are right back in the top spot.  Best of luck to you brother!

I am right there with you. I had a 2 game lead with 4 to play and blew it! honestly i dont deserve it at this point, but i still got a little fight left. I just got done telling a buddy you made a solid pick in my eyes with Duke. hopefully Milwaukee comes out flat after thrashing Detroit last night....yeah we need creator to lose and both of us win so it will come down to us with 1 day left!! If i dont win, I def want you to. Hell I'll even drop a hundy on you if i do win, its free money! Sad, 2nd doesnt get anything!

I should have had this wrapped up yesterday! thanks for blowing an 18 pt lead with 5 min to play Lakers! ha!!! Thanks man! I'm gonna need it. This kid is on a tear!! its me and him, the guy in 3rd gets trumped by my tie breaker even if we both win. Like you said, only way you can get in is if all 3 of us lose and you get a win. Highly doubtful, but good luck.

brother i was waiting to see if anyone flinched. i was going to post the opposite play of creator, but he never made a play. I coudlnt take a chance of not getting a play in. had to go with SJSU. I am not really happy about this pick, but like i said had to get one in. good luck to you too. I'll be rooting for the Zags to cover.

just saw, badgers is looking at the bigger picture. the over is the play. had i known i would have taken the under,  just to make it win or lose with 1 game. now i gotta hope SJSU holds on to cover and  that there is a cold shooting night at golden state. gonna be a long 2 and a half hrs....

badger doesnt have a shot for the monthly now, but he has 11 straight, he should be looking at getting to 25!
