You sound like the gerbils, trying to keep the audience interested during the last 20 laps of a stinker.
You can just look into post #2 and see who we had left.
I went with Harvick. He got me a 7th place finish, my 17th top 10 finish this year. I think I ended up runner up in the standings.
Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated . . . .
Due to a family medical emergency that I've been preoccupied with over the past few days, I've been unable to put any time or effort to the Pick 'Em game.
Fortunately, everything turned out A-OK on the home front and I'll be able to update the "picks and results" spreadsheets sometime today.
And yes, it appears that @dirtfan is this year's champion and, as such, he will be presented with a championship plaque at this year's virtual awards ceremony.
Many thanks to all that participated in this year's game.
