    my football eliminator

    $100 each to the pool

    2,400 and change entered this year (yes, the pool winner, if there was a sole winner, would collect $240,000)

    three weeks in, just 247 left.

    pretty amazing upsets to date

    so if all 247 were smart, they'd get together and agree to take almost $1K each on their $100 investment

    haha. with 14 weeks to go, that isn't happening.

    several years back, I played their $1,000. 78 entries, 11 left after two weeks. we did, in fact, take $11,000 each.

    Hopefully you each only took $7K otherwise someone paid too much.

    Interesting story about one particular finish. Usually, because so many in, the pot is split by however many finish 17 weeks picking winners. About 5 or 6 years ago, pot was around $190,000. 7 guys left, not all wanted to split it up. 2 weeks to go, 6 picked Dallas. Dallas lost. One guy received the entire prize (in cash).

    Nice season for that guy...
