Anybody up for the underdog game this year?

We're thinking about running our charity pro football underdog game again this year. We were reminded of it the other day when this came in the mail -- an 8 by 10 print of Poppy:

It's a long story. But anyway, the game will be pretty much the same as last year. Players kiss $20 goodbye -- it all goes to charity -- and slug it out, season-long, for glory and the right to designate which charity gets the pot. With enough players, we can have multiple charities benefit, as we have in past years.

If you're interested, give us a holler via this e-mail link. We'll get this year's official rules and all that posted in a few days. The NFL season starts two weeks from tomorrow.

And if there are any game creators out there who might be able to help us automate the proceedings, please, let's hear from you. We'll make it worth your while.

I’m looking forward to another season in the pool. This year, I hope to be going for the gold, instead of drowning in the deep end like last year.

I'm in too.

I'm definitely playing again this year. It's too much fun to miss!

I'll be back in the pool -- I missed getting in by the deadline while traveling last year; and touting, while a lot of fun, is a lot more work!


Hmmm, Houston Texans are 5th favorites @ 12-1 for the Championship. TB, CLE, WAS, MIN, IND, JAX, ARI & STL are all tied for last at 100-1. Makes for a nice batch of ultimate underdogs! Buffalo still a distant 50-1 shot, alas -- but was a u-dog favorite performer for the first half of last season. Cleveland may surprise people this year.

YES!!! The only "gambling" I do.

Oh yeah, it's ON. Let's see if I can figure out how to climb out of the "middle third" of the standings this time.
