EDIT: Per the website you gave me to keep track of your scores, it looks like you went 0/2. Gonna pencil that in. Let me know if I'm wrong!
Yes they flopped. Such fine margins in football.

Congratulations to England, who just smashed Ireland at the Aviva.

Enjoyed that. England were good.

I went 3/5 on my LFA 59 picks. UFC on ESPN+ 2 is later tonight.

Did you ever see the movie ďChuckĒ about the real Rocky?

Another Q do consider Vladimir klitschko a top ten heavyweight of all time?
I'm down for mini-games. Not sure that I'll participate personally until I hear what it is though.

I follow as many promotions as I can. If I'm not familiar with fighters, I research them [record, style, recent performances, etc.]. I usually make it a rule to not make picks for fights that involve debuting opponents, but I made an exception for the Kron Gracie fight.

Never saw "Chuck."

Vladimir Klitschko is definitely top-10 as far as current heavyweight boxers go. I'd have to think on it, but tentatively, I would say yes.

I was thinking a confidence game

One person picks 5 NBA games and you pick the winners with increasing ďconfidenceĒ so the game you assign the most confidence is worth 5 pts and the least 1 point

It has to be the same five games for everyone

A bird has a left wing and a right wing but theyíre just for flapping. The bird brain is in the middle.

I think a lot of Americans don’t like to give him his due.

This doesn't really play into the "1 point per pick" theme of the thread. Trying to keep things as simple as possible.

That being said, I'd be more than happy to create a section in the main post and title it something like "OccultHawk's Corner" or "The OccultHawk Challenge" and have those picks and points be separate from the main part. Whatcha think?

Get some others on board and I'll play. Either way, I'd be happy to grant you your own section, like I stated above.

Letís just play one on one. Is it bothersome to make picks for this game that donít count toward your score counter? It is, isnít it? Sigh. I get it though. Itís sort of disruptive but itís just a mini game. I mean if I start making NBA picks itís like to easy to just cherry pick games. Not that... oh well ///tears

Okay, I'm game.

And if you can cherry-pick, then do it!
