Greg Paulson: This week’s NFL genius

As the Cowboys-Eagles Monday Night Football game wound down to its thrilling conclusion, two thoughts crossed my mind:

1) I hate the Dallas Cowboys!

2) Thank goodness the Cowboys won!

The dichotomy comes about because, while I do hate the Cowboys, I needed them to win to boost my UPickEm score in the Sierra Sun’s weekly pro football competition.

Alas, I cannot brag this week about being on top of the world of local pro football fans, as Greg Paulson of Truckee came through with 12 correct picks (out of 15 possible) for the win and a $30 gift certificate to the Blue Coyote Sports Bar and Grill.

But I’ll satisfy my need for glory with the fact that I’m only two points behind Greg in the season-long competition.

Think you have what it takes to out-pick me, Greg, Sports Editor Sylas Wright and Publisher Michael Bennett?

Then join the Sierra Sun’s UPickEm game online now at Weekly winners will receive prizes from our local sponsors and the glory of being in the paper next week.
