I don't know who wins the Costanza yet. I need some code that notes players who never missed a week.

Man, if I hadn't missed that one week I would've won this damn thing hands down. And yes, I would've scored at least 190 in that one week.

rcade, why you gotta keep doin' me dirty like that?! I locked all those suckers, which I think results in an 86 point week for me. I should be in a tie for the coveted 11th place slot, rather than all alone in 12th. Tell you what, we'll let it slide this time.

In all seriousness--nice pickin' ufez, and thanks for running the show, rcade.

Man, the option to lock as many games as you want was a poison that I just couldn't stop drinking after about week 4. I should have quit after the week where I nailed almost all of them, and just gone back to one or two a week.

Instead, I rode the snake each week, and it kept biting me...

Thanks, rcade. Sorry I was such a zero this season.

Congratulation, Ufez, that was a great job with the picking. Many thanks, rcade, for running this. It's always a lot of fun, and it's one of the things that keeps Sports Filter and its denizens as my favorite sports-related web sit.

Thanks, rcade! Team bender is waiting with baited breath to find out if our stunning week 17 performance has indeed moved us out of the cellar or if we have a dented new Costanza to add to the trophy case.

Go Ufez!

I feel really good about 146 points this week because I know exactly what I am doing and spent a lot of time researching so no surprise really, at all.
