Congrats to:

Andy (3.5)
pdxmick (3)
Sattelihu, Umpire (2.5)

Here's to Broadway Joe, Nick, john dull, and me picking up a nice 2.5 tonight to create a fairly meaningless logjam in third place - or possibly 4th if Annie picked a winner.

Who is "Biggest Cubs Loser" because I'm guessing you're probably - like me - a Bears fan too, which means we stole one "by the rules" yesterday! In the process making some sad pandas out of Anthony, Larry Legend, Rich M., genop's gal, and Eric.

Once upon a midnight dreary ... quoth the raven "UNDERDOG!"

Not only did that asinine rule costs me points in this here Underdog Pool, but I also have Calvin Johnson on my fantasy team, so it was a double whammy.

Thank you, Ravens.... my faith was justified. And any points is better than no points. I just gotta keep listening to my little voice.
