2015 Season NFL Picks Week 3

OK. Last week was a slight disaster in terms of absolute results. Only got 7 of 16 games right. However, it’s not like the analysts at ESPN did better. I’m still tied with Tom Jackson in the lead at 19 rights and 13 wrongs overall. Best strategy last week would have been just to bet straight up home teams cause 10 of the 16 home teams won. That was better than anybody in my pool and anybody at ESPN.

Last updated Mon 12:04 AM

As per the note left on my Day 1 post that was originally supposed to encompass the entire 3 day Labour Day weekend, I am now moving to doing three posts about the experience. I am writing enough to do three posts so why not? It keeps it more manageable for readers.

This post will expand as the day goes on. I will update last time of update on the first line as updates beyond the first one take place.

My 3-Day Novel Contest Experience Day 1

Three Day Logo

End of Saturday note:
I blogged far more than I ever thought I would to document my 3-Day Novel Contest so I will make this post into three posts, one for each day of the contest. During each day, I will “grow” each post, adding notes as I go. Hey, adaptation and flexibility is part of this contest. Why not the blog posts that accompany it? This is the link to the Day 2 post. Below was the start of this post.

Start of Day 1 Post

In a few minutes at time of writing this sentence on Friday night before the Labour Day weekend, I will start the 3-Day Novel Contest. I want to document some of that experience, and share it while doing so for anybody who cares. However, I don’t want to overwhelm my followers with a whole bunch of microblogging style posts. As a result, I’ll just “grow” this post as this weekend goes along. Anybody who cares to see how things are going can revisit this post at their convenience and see. Thank you!

Obama’s Barackets Had a Bad Day 4, But Still Doing “Well”

Day 4 saw President Obama’s ESPN March Madness 2014 Barackets fall from a percentile in the 90s to 73.7 as ranked teams fell. That said, it’s only a matter of a game or two’s difference that made the fall seem a lot bigger than it actually was.

President Obama’s Barackets

My Brackets ended up in a tie with the POTUS after Day 4 by not having as bad a day as Obama’s Barackets. However, it’s all going to come down to who picked the eventual winner to decide this, given how much that is worth. I went with overall #1 ranked Florida, while Obama went with sentimental favourite Michigan State. I have an edge in the meanwhile with only 2 Elite 8 teams eliminated to Obama’s three, but that may only resolve things if neither Florida nor Michigan State wins.

Breather for now. Getting back to quotes and fashion posts for a few days. 🙂
