2017 Swill Pick'Em - Will Travis and Goose go for a repeat tie?

Post by Death Roe on 2017-08-03, 15:41

Welcome back picksters,

We had a great finish to last year's pick'em.

The people that actually went the whole way, were sort of rewarded at the end.

We had a tie for the championship, as Travis and Goose both finished with the best records on the site, even with 289 picks made.

Just giving everyone a heads up - This will be the main pick'em thread with weekly ones made.

The first games to be used will start THURSDAY, AUGUST 31! There aren't really any interesting games earlier in the week.

I will be a little more lax when it comes to the bowl season pick'ems. I'll give all the picks out, and give you that week to pick that week's games, unless you are feeling confident enough to pick all of them. Once your picks are in, they're locked in, just a warning!

2016 Final Standings
1. Travis
-. Goose
3. Pylon
4. Wags
5. LWS
6. Death Roe
7. OTPT
8. Intensity
9. gHost

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

*IF we have ANOTHER TIE this season for the title, I will be making the NFL Playoff weekend right afterwards the final determinant, and if there is still a tie, we will go all the way to the Super Bowl.

I don't get the recognition I deserve for winning the natty in 2015

I wasn't a part of that, man. You are in the ring of honor in Travis' pit.

I actually had the best winning percentage but I wasn't able to submit my picks each week.

You were a contender! Until you stopped picking.
