Those of you who are familiar with Fornelli's Foul Balls, know about the ongoing bet he had with his editor Panger. During the playoffs, they picked the winner of each game , with Fornelli eventually coming out on top. Well, now Fornelli has thrown down the gauntlet and invited me and the Biler himself, James, to join in the basketball version of this competition. Each day (excluding weekends) we're going to pick winners from a max of three game. You get a point for each correct answer, with no penalty for a wrong answer. There is a small twist though; you can double down on a game and if you get that came right, you get two points but risk losing one point if you're wrong.
There hasn't been an anounced prize yet, maybe it'll be a Big Mac, but it should be a good battle all season long. Fornelli is still riding high from winning the baseball pick'em and James is going to be talking 'bout his pick to click win until next season. So here's hoping for a Jeeves' win or at the least a Panger win, considering we haven't had a taste of victory just yet.
Oh, by the way, I know it's early, but as of Saturday, I'm in first place.
I think I'm going track of the standings in the sidebar and I may even supply justification for my picks via posts. We'll see how it plays out. Of course, if I'm languising in last place, all that may jsut disappear.
