Well, I did too well last week to likely still contend for a Costanza, but can't pull off a win, so might as well double down and pick a NE-heavy set. If NE loses, I'll be too sad to care about the Costanza. :)

SpoFite winner: beaverboard. I admire what rumple has done here, and I feel that tron has a special knack for these pick 'ems, but if you don't pick yourself and that ends up costing you the title, well, that's just foolish. I do think that those other guys are better at this, though.
