    If the team wins OR ties, the contestant is eliminated.

          More contributors with a chance to enter after our technical difficulties last month.

          As for interlopers, they have no chance against the EOG faithful..

              Add "mouth agape" to my EOG glossary.

                  Thanks Winky.

                  And our signature contest -- One-on-One with "1" -- will be unveiled tomorrow morning.

                  I hope to recruit ComptrBob to leadoff the competition in Week 1.

                  Stay tuned.

                        People can't jump in after week 2 right? If they don't get a pick in for week 2 they can't get in the rest of the way right?

                            Right

                            ..................and my guess is JK will post a thread each week for people to post plays - this will make finding/grading all picks easier to do

                              All the broke dikk moochers are lurking, waiting to jump in here inconspicuously as possible. Maybe throw a post here and there into another thread first so not as obvious.

                                      I would donate 1/2 my winnings to allow EOG to trade up from the current 14.4k modem they are running to bring us some 1990's era speed.

                                        and that will come close to doubling by sunday, I must warn you railbird, although you are great, most of these boys

                                        I will send out specifics later tonight when I am on the computer, and do my rough draft sunday baseball pre card.

                                                    Correct.

                                                    Week 2 is the starting point and ending point.

                                                                do a less than 333 post side contest for $33 or something to get perhaps some others to join up and particiapte.

                                                                Post minimums do not interest me, Try3.

                                                                Too many quality lurkers to not include them.

                                                                I'll keep a close eye on anyone trying to flood the entry box..
