UPickEm: Hanging out in sports bars pays off
This week we had a clear winner in the Sierra Sun’s UPickEm Pro Football Challenge ” local bartender Suzy Walden of Pete ‘n Peters took first place with a score of 13 correct picks. Looking at the stats, it appears that Suzy just started playing the week before last, making her rise to the top that much more impressive. I guess it pays to hang out in a sports bar all the time.
As usual, Suzy will have her choice of a $30 Pete ‘n Peters gift certificate or a $20 Blue Coyote gift certificate. Anybody want to bet on which one she’ll choose?
In second place this week was Truckee’s Rich Hill, who beat out the other 12-point players because of his very close prediction of the score in the Chicago-Minnesota tie-breaker game. For coming in second, Rich will receive the prize that Suzy does not select.
