The 12th Annual chicobangs Memorial SpoFi CFL Pick 'Em

It's nice to say that I'm the returning champ. So, I'll probably finish last this year/lol. (Too bad we can't have a CFL football or something similar for a prize-like keeping track of our picks and running this isn't enough work already.)

So here it goes... The Jaguars by 17, wait, what? wrong league.

The Ti-Cats by 11 Blue Bombers by 10 Eskimos by 17 Stampeders by 6

Good luck everyone. And oh yeah, take off, eh, you hosers!!

Penguins claim fourth Stanley Cup with 3-1 win over Sharks

Looks like my Vegas prediction just needed to wait a couple of days.

Also, on the Miss Crosby comment, it's all in good fun. He's one of the best players in the League, no doubt about it, and is one of the main reasons they are sipping champagne from Lord Stanley's Cup in Pittsburgh.

Penguins claim fourth Stanley Cup with 3-1 win over Sharks

So I went back and looked at my preseason predictions for this year. Some were pretty good while some were way off/lol.

The Columbus Blue Jackets make the playoffs this year (but lose in the first round in a hard fought series).

Ovechkin and Crosby will not win a Cup and both will be blamed for their team's lack of winning one, though both will be in conversation for the Hart.

"My" New York Islanders will make it out of the first round of the playoffs, but their fanbase will still be bitter about the move to Brooklyn and the horrible seating arrangement at the Barclays.

Bettman will do something to solidify, once again, why he is considered (and rightfully so) the worst commissioner in all of North American sports.

Las Vegas will be announced as a expansion franchise, Quebec will have to wait (will Seattle get it instead?) to find out their fate until next offseason. (Personally, I think, it will come down to if any current franchises end up moving--like the Coyotes, because some owners want to see more travel balance for the teams out west)

The playoffs will score some of the highest TV ratings of the last 5 years but the Finals will flop in the ratings department.

Buffalo will not have the worst record in the league this year (but maybe second or third worst)

I will win the fantasy hockey league.

Nashville will be the "in" pick to win it all before the playoffs begin, but will fall short.

The Rangers will not win a playoff series.

After taking the Ducks to a classic seven game series, the Sharks go on to beat the Bruins in six to hoist the cup. These are my bold predictions for this year. (if you are near Vegas, go ahead and put money "against" all of these and you'll finish ahead/lol)

(taken from a post from earlier this year)

Blue Jackets/uggh Ovechkin, of course, was blamed, but Miss Crosby won it all The Isles did win a playoff series and played ok in the second round Bettman is, well, Bettman No final word on expansion, ...yet Ratings were not horrible Buffalo was improved but still sucked Yeah, not so much on the fantasy (had chance to make playoffs until final night of regular season, then, well not so much) I know quite a few people who picked the Preds The Rangers still suck regardless how good they may or may not be The Sharks almost did it (right colors wrong team for who they would be playing--how could I be so close with San Jose and so far with the Bruins?lol)

Opening Day for the Greatest Numerical Sport

As a Reds fan, "Opening Day" is not on Sunday, but Monday this year. Precisely, at 4:10 p.m. Monday afternoon, when the Reds game starts. The four letter network screwed with the baseball Gods when they had other games the day before the Reds.

Baseball Hall of Fame adds "The Kid" and the catcher in 2016.

the Gooch (his high school moniker),

Wasn't there a football player in the 80s from Moeller who was nicknamed the Gooch, as well? I think he ended up going to Notre Dame. It was right after the Francisco brothers (Hiawatha and DaJuan, I think). I'm pretty sure it was during the Faust era.

NFL Pick 'Em Contest Winner: Grum@work

Congrats Grum. Job well done.

This may be more popular than I realize, but it always seemed odd to me. The only thing I like about it is that Jagsnumberone can always pick the Jags while still trying to get a point when they're all-but-certain to be walloped

Wished we had used it this year, would have meant a lot more points for me (It seemed at least once a week I would have the spread exactly correct but the wrong team/lol)

Also, the Jags will win a lot more games next year, so I'll miss less games (fingers crossed on this one/lol)
