UPickEm: Overcoming a week of unfortunate picks

Despite the diminished number of games this weekend 13 instead of the usual 15 or 16 NFL fans got more than their moneys worth as the Monday night game between the Steelers and Ravens went into overtime.It was a game filled with challenges overcome by the Steelers, including losing the overtime coin toss and the loss of four pretty key players during the game. And overall it was a great game to watch. But the outcome was all wrong for me and my meager seven points in this weeks Sierra Sun UPickEm Pro Football Challenge.So Ive got to give it up to David Shelton of Tahoe City, who came through for the win with 10 points (out of 13 possible), winning his choice of either a $30 Pete N Peters gift certificate or a $20 Blue Coyote gift certificate. Our own Arts andamp; Entertainment Editor, Morgan Kriz, took second place, also with 10 points (David beat her in the tie-breaker scoring). But she is unfortunately ineligible for the second-place prize. That means Danny Kerr of Kings Beach, who finished third, gets the prize not chosen by David this week. Think you can do better? Then get in the game now at SierraSun.com/ProFootball. Each week you pick the winner for each pro football game up to 15 minutes before it is scheduled to start.
