'Dog race staying tight

The players in our charity pro football underdog game have chosen as follows:

9.5 BALTIMORE at Denver - Jeremy, Tung, pdxmick, Gary, PDXileinOmaha, Gordon, Biggest Cubs Loser, Dr. D, Usual Kevin, Coastal Storm, Annie, Eric W., Tinknocker, Cinderella Story, Grizfan
9.5 HOUSTON at New England - Ted, Paul, Broadway Joe, DB Cooper, genop's gal, Juicen
3 GREEN BAY at San Francisco - George, Dave A., NoPoGuy, Sola, Will, Bayou Baby, Pete Rose, JMH, Bad Brad, John Cr., John Ch., Drewbob, genop, Michael K.
1 SEATTLE at Atlanta - Rudie, Carol, Lucas

It doesn't look as though that logjam between our second and seventh places is going to be broken up this weekend, as it appears all the players in that pack went with the Pack. But Tung could leapfrog up from eighth if The Good Flacco shows up.

Have a great couple of days, and enjoy the last Saturday of real football until late summer.

UPDATE, 11:46 p.m.: Wow, a big win for Baltimore, but nada for Green Bay. The standings going into Sunday's games are as follows. Folks with a 'dog in the hunt on Sunday are designated with asterisks:

Amazing double OT win for the Ravens. Congrats to those brave enough to pick a BIG dog!

In my case, it was desperation, rather than bravery. Or cold-hearted application of game theory logic. I had to pick one of the big games, and hope that the players ahead of me wouldn't pick the same one. Glad it worked out that way.

(And now, to go root against Green Bay....)
