    Two wins and one loss from three selections for a profit of .85 units.

    If Zzyzx shows a profit from his MLB totals in the month of May, he'll earn a spot in the June edition of EOG's Grand Challenge.

    He should get June regardless of what happens in this thread, just my 2 cents

    I've got him penciled in for June, but I was hoping to add some drama to his May selections.

    Good job John, I had a feeling his spot wasn't based on this thread anyway

    A loser at Wrigley but "Z" gets credit for finding shutouts in Queens (7-0) and Minneapolis (4-0).

    Current record: 4-2 for profits of 1.85 units.

    In rural San Bernardino county, there are several places like this, where people come by and tie their old shoes to a fence. You can't see them, but I put an old pair of dress shoes that I wore in college on it a few years ago.
    It's weird because these things are always in the middle of nowhere.

    Never knew something like this existed, a shoe fence.

    Now I'm beginning to understand the contributor's screen name (ZzyzxRoad).

    I recently left an old pair of dress shoes at a Costa Rican hostel for anyone to pick up.

    Something like this used to happen a lot in NYC years ago.People would take their old "sneakers",tie them together by the laces,and toss them in the air so they would hang over the utility lines on the street.Pairs of shoes would be all over the place,it was a sort of marking urban territory.Don't see it as much anymore:

    It's a generous offer, but I'm going to have to decline. I have a lot of traveling/camping planned for next month, and I can't guarantee that I'll have internet everyday.

    I only bet it because the line was way off.
