So, am I out because I didn't pick a team before last nights game?

No... not out of the contest which is two strikes and yer out. Just shut out of this week so... "Strike One".

TNF kick off is the deadline for the week. It's always been that way and it's tripped up a few every year.

You can set email reminders...

Yes, what would happen if they eliminated Thursday NFL games......nothing. I'd love to see them gone.

Just a slight clarification you're out for this week just like any dumbazz who picks his winning team and forgets to hit *SAVE* in week one. :ph34r:

I don't disagree, but the logic is that a choice is eliminated. How much of a help (or loss) is that? It varies...

Just set the reminder... you're not out of it yet!

It's why I don't play golf anymore- too frustrating. Got so Poed on the last hole once - teed off with my putter. Beautiful drive right down the middle, followed closely by the putter head. Would usually shoot 110, breaking 100 was a great day. Way back was playing a quick nine with my pal (who could spot me a stroke a hole and still smear me). Hit the first two par four greens in regulation, and was even after three holes. Went on to shoot a 39. Got back to the car, threw my clubs in the trunk and told my pal- "that's it, I quit, I'm going out on top." Meant it too- only touched a club twice after that. Once at a pre-wedding bachelor outing years later with my pals. On the first hole, hooked my first two drives out of bounds into the driving range- and I remembered why I quit. :)

Last year I played holes 1-3 to par, I then birdied 4,5 and 6.  And then the magic wore off and I was me again.  But it was fun to be Arnold Palmer for an hour. :)

Diamond Shamock had a rec area on their Deer Park, TX site's property. In addition to a clubhouse, pool and softball field it had a nine-hole course with two distinct sets of tees. It was an underkept cow pasture quality course through the 70's until a new regional VP said, "if we are to have a course, let's have a course," and put some money into it. The outlay included a contract with San Jacinto Jr. College's Golf Course Maintenance faculty to oversee conditioning. It got to be very playable in the 80's.

It was par 34, but only about 3000-yd long, but the greens were tiny. It had been par 36, but a neighbor's cooling tower drift kept killing a par 4's green and par 5's teebox in a corner of the course. A couple of the holes were tree-lined, but much was open and flat. And it was free to employees so...

Anyway went around it twice one time in the 1980's in 1-under... a day when I hit the ball well, but could've gotten up and down from a trash can.

By contrast... and just to keep it real... I never broke 80 on my old home course. http://www.bayforestgolf.com/

Yar- it was 95 degrees in St. Louis- in August. Best part of the day was seeing a golf cart  coming the wrong way up one of the fairways- "would you gentlemen like to buy a beer?" Can't even remember what I shot, but was playing by Hoorta rules. Out of bounds doesn't count, teeing it up in the fairway on any shot- permissible, free drop behind any ball hit into a sand trap, stop counting at seven on any hole.....

Ha, the Browns didn't disappoint me. Knew they'd find a way to lose and eliminate me. If the Curmudgeon had only gone with last year's strategy, he'd still be perfect. :)

Yeah I hate those Thursday NFL picks after MNF it really only gives you Tuesday and Wednesday which can be tough if you're busy......maybe we can petition the NFL to get rid of them? :lol:

I screwed up week 1 picked buffalo and forgot to hit SAVE! :angry:

BringBackBrownie2 gets his first strike while DBone, Woody and UGOTB'd made it thru with only the one with which they came into the week.

Below are those new 8 that DBone mentioned.
