At first there were 43, and it looked so easy. All you had to do was pick an NFL winner each week -- how hard could that be? Well, harder than you might think as there are now only 13. I'm talking about the NFL Eliminator Series that bloggers are playing in.
Two of my favorite bloggers, Lightning 36 and CK of BWoP are still in, as am I.
It only gets harder and harder, however, because you can only pick each team one time. Heck, I'd like to pick Indianapolis each week, too, but that isn't allowed. I did pick some bad teams early. I picked San Francisco, Buffalo (!) and a couple of other pretty bad teams. Why? Well, I have saved some good teams to pick in the coming eight weeks: Pittsburgh, Minnesota, New England, Dallas (at home against Oakland, yum!), Arizona (at home against St. Louis, more yum), Denver (at home against Oakland, super yum) and Cincinnati.
We'll see how it goes, but I want to win *really* bad. Bragging rights among bloggers -- it doesn't get any better than that.
Are/were you in a group? Are you still alive?
