The road to Easy Street goes through the sewer. ~John Madden

The BGG Football Pool, the richest Geek Gold contest ever devised, would like to salute Joe Scoleri (aka The Maverick), who has surpassed the reclusive splat0169 to become the richest Geek in the world. Let us all face Fort Knox, drop to our knees, bow our heads, and worship at the alter of...



...........................................Amen.

In the NFL, Philly, Atlanta, New England, Pittsburgh and Indy have all clinched playoff berths. This late in the season the teams have pretty much shown all they've got so predicting winners becomes easier. Unfortunately, it also means that one miscue will kill you, and indeed most players in the football pool were mathematically eliminated before the late games had even begun. Surprisingly, the pool still came down to a Monday Night total points tie-break with jim.brooks10 holding the higher total, and since the Chiefs and Titans combined put 87 points on the board, he easily won the Week #14 pot of 17gg!

Here is the current NFL playoff picture: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/7917332

Speaking of cash, how much can you spend in this Froggeresque flash game of halftime snack grabbing: http://www.playfootball.com/games/fanfrenzy/

Or, if you'd like another gaming quiz, try Magic: The Gathering Rulings at: http://www.funtrivia.com/playquiz.cfm?qid=139563&origin=http://www.funtrivia.com/quizzes/hobbies/games/magic_the_gathering.html



Maybe a good rule in life is never become too important to do your own laundry. ~Barry Sanders

Miss Honey has spent her way down to -5.

There's no way I'm posting a pic of Cris Carter though!

BTW, do I get some kind of a bonus for spelling Cris Carter's name correctly? I'm not even a Viking fan and I know how to spell it. Sheesh.

OMG CC No HoF? lol
If Cris Carter does not make the HoF, then they might as well bulldoze the entire wide receiver wing of the Hall (except for the spot that's marked, "future HoFer Jerry Rice")

Ooh... You do need to post a pic, which means you need to find one here at BGG. To post it, click on "image" next to the text color choices. A new window appears prompting you for a BGG photo ID number. Type in the number and hit OK. Then post it.

Wow, in under a year Splat0169 has posted 477 pictures earning 2108 GG. He/She has 1408 games in his/her collection but hasn't rated a single one and has no lists, comments, journals, avatar or anything at all.

Not that Splat0169 has to do any of these things but it just seems odd to me. Why would an obviously fanatical collector go to all the trouble to enter their voluminous collection and to upload scads of photos but then choose to remain silent? A collector without an opinion about their collection, that has got to be a first.

It's actually more incredible than that. splat0169 registered on Jan 10th 2004, and his last Profile Page update was on Mar 9th 2004, so he earned 2108gg in two months! That's a record I don't think anyone will break!

I'm not worthy!
LOL! I'm not even sure how I got that much... was there a GG bank robbery someplace???

Let me also recognize that there are plenty of other users here that have contributed much more than I have in many other facets of BGG that I don't participate in (or not as much), so hats off to them too! Especially the reviewers and session reporters... something I hope to do more of in the future.

And, of course, thanks to the big men that run the show!

And thanks (?) to the behind the scenes administrators who want to reject all my photos and game entries!

Why would an obviously fanatical collector go to all the trouble to enter their voluminous collection and to upload scads of photos but then choose to remain silent?

It does take a lot of time to enter that much (wish I had DSL since day 1 here!), so I can see where he might have been too exhausted to do anything else...
