Did we ever find out who won the playoff pick em? I'm curious to see if I could get all the games right and still manage to lose because I did so poorly on the props.

I think rcade may still be traveling due to his recent loss. Even without the travel, stuff piles up in tough times, so hard to work through it all in a timely fashion.

I always figured that either tron or rumple nailed down that pick em.

I have recently subscribed to the e-mail list for "The Players' Forum". I don't read all of the contributions, but most of those that I do read show some excellent writing. I looked at this one tonight, and it taught me a number of things I did not know. Even better, the story shows how much one man's passion for a game he does not play affected an entire nation and brought a very different minority population closer to the rest of the country. It's a bit lengthy, but certainly worth the time.
