The EOG Octagon (SLEEPY v VIEJO DINOSAUR)

The March edition of The EOG Octagon is currently on hold.

Sleepy (+3.7 units from a record of 11-7) leads Viejo Dinosaur (-3.4 units from a record of 1-4).

This event will end Tuesday, March 31, as scheduled.

EOG will declare the competition NO CONTEST if the coronavirus outbreak continues to disrupt the sports schedule.

Two actions will then take place: 1) A refund of Viejo Dinosaur's entry fee and 2) A refund of Sleepy's entry fee PLUS we will award Sleepy the BetDSI bonus money ($500) as a consolation prize.

ComptrBob deserves credit..

I consulted with him during a 40-minute conversation last Friday.

I did not ask for input from either of the two contestants.

Funny note: I interrupted Bob's afternoon reading session before he headed out for a Friday night dinner.

What was ComptrBob reading?

A new book on game theory.

Was good discussing several options given the very disappointing (but probably necessary) cancellation of all major sporting events for what appeared to be at least a month if not several months. Thanks to both competitors for their efforts, I hope we all can look back on this period as challenging, but we will survive. :)

The book is "Game Theory, an Introduction", by Steven Tadelis.
 
Thanks to JK, ComptrBob,and EOG for the decision....Sleepy deserved the 500 bucks....

FWIW I showed my friend Old Sandbagger a list of 10 college basketball totals that I was going to submit when I was 1-3....they all went on the same day....I did not submit them after conferring with him...long story short, they went 8-2.....we laughed about it over breakfast...
 
Very fair deal, as usual JK right on top of things (assist to CB).

I will say Sleepy really opened my eyes of late.

I did prop the guy up a few months ago when talking about his bankroll (it's for real), now people see what I was talking about,

The guy can win. VD would be a good match for him.
 
Are these two lined up if/when April begins assuming things are back to normal?

Also I mentioned it but I'd like to get involved too when Football comes around. Put my name in the hat please.

Your name is in the hat, Patrick.

Would love to have you involved.

And that's the kind of forward-thinking and planning and anticipation of future events this country needs.

The Kentucky Derby is set for the first Saturday in September.

Finally, a smart move by Churchill Downs, Inc.

Let's adjust our schedules accordingly and never lose hope or optimism.

Show poise, not panic.

Oh yes, Sleepy is "holding court" when The EOG Octagon picks up again.

Let's shoot for July 1 or sooner.

How's this idea: The country should be planning the biggest Fourth of July celebration ever.

Independent from coronavirus, that is.
