I'll be in Italy for the next two weeks, and will be damned if I'm wasting a moment of my time hanging around with you clowns in the electron ether of the internet. (Oh who am I kidding, they have web cafes there, right? I can't quit you guys. Besides, I have a fantasy baseball team to manage too.) I won't be taking my laptop, anyway, so I won't have access to my magical spreadsheets.

THE PODIUM: sluellwitz continues his assault on the top spots by picking 1-0 for everything. Sam and I are along for the ride.

CLEVER PICK OF THE WEEK: Captain Kirk called the Tottenham-WBA draw and pick up two points in doing so.

CRISIS PICK OF THE WEEK/Philly37 WISHFUL THINKING PICK OF THE WEEK: I picked Swansea to beat Chelsea. I regret nothing. I also earned nothing. Except this awesome double trophy!

I'm feeling it: breathing room. And sluellwitz is inching up on hansdampf little by little. TIME FOR ME TO UNDERESTIMATE MY OPPONENTS AND PICK 72-3 EVERY MATCH.

OK, one game left, and only three people left in it. Mathematically, Steakballer can only tie for the title. He and PowderedDonut will (probably) have to sell their souls and pick against Arsenal in addition to calling the exact score to catch sluellwitz. In other words, sluellwitz would have to completely shit the bed to lose the tropheeee.


Anyway, we'll find out in a month or so.


Feel free to make your picks at whatever pace suits you. As long as they're timestamped by their respective kickoffs I'll enter them into the Spreadsheet of Doom.
