Ohhhhh  I was so close to winning the NFL Football pool at Work yesterday,

   I was undefeated  (hadn't missed any games)  coming in to the Steelers/ Chargers game

If San Diego had won ....I would have won the pot.   But they didn't.....so...

  I'm still in it for tonight  having suffered one loss 

       I need Minnessota to win,   and my points have to be good.

I only posted because I had never been this close before.   Rant

           The pot is a little over $700 hundred dollars this week

        Thank You VERY MUCH   tiggs

          I don't think it was a jealuosy  thing,   I think it's just that the Gaming section doesn't get

         very much air time.   But at $6 dollars per person it's kinda lottery realated

          and that almost equates to    126 people in the pool.

        And I feel vey Lucky and previledged to have won it.

          (don't get me wrong  I only lost 3 the week before)

                Any way We've got ours in for this comig week already.   (Wed. is turn-in day)

             ...again THANKS!!!!

          A win is a win and it always feels so good..I won 1,200.00 once tax free and I was sky high..Good luck every week you play..Maybe some of that luck will rub off on the lottery..Like my sisters says"You never know"..:)..

                Thanks,  Needachange23

                  and Base400

                I'll need the $700 as my vehicle is in the shop for repairs

                  but I blew the other $60  on pizza for lunch for everybody.

                  I 'm not really a football fan but we do have a football pool at work. I tried for 2 weeks to get into it but when I was able to pay ($5) he closed it out. The next time I saw him I wasn't able to pay but I could have waited until Saturday or Monday to pay and when I saw him Saturday he had closed it out but this weekI will save my $5

                  I don't really don't understand how it works I just like to gamble. Our pot isn't even near $700. Probably closer to $150

                          I agree,

                           I figured Tampa Bay winnig at Home would actually, kinda, be an up-set.

                           Anyway I missed six last time,        ....and I got a report that the Winner missed 2.

                               That MINN./ PITT   this Sunday has me thinking  I might need two sheets.

                                           

                                        Eek

                            Don't go by what I say but I'd go with Pitts..But it's 50-50 but it's at Pitts so that should give them the edge and Minn is way over due for a loss..Good luck and like I say don't follow what I say..Hope you win..

                              Well,....You got Pittsburgh right  tiggs,   They kinda got after the 'senior citizen' of Football didn't they?

                                  Anyway,  I won that one, but lost 4 this time.

                                      Some of these teams are like cold lottery balls,       ...every now and then they "pop-up"  (Buffalo)

                                          Anyway I'm still doing it every week.
