It’s that time of year again, when you poor bastards get barraged with gif filled emails from the random musings rattling around my booze addled brain. Based on the tremendous turn out at our back to school happy hour, especially from the younger dads, I am anticipating a larger field which of course means a larger payout. As always, I will be sending out weekly updates and mocking those of you that get eliminated with personal anecdotes about your shortcomings. Given the expected influx of newcomers, if I don’t know you, I’ll just make something up. I’ll offend all of you at some point, but please remember it’s never personal.
Good news for those of you that participated last year, you just need to click on the link below and sign in. For the rest of you, the rules are pretty simple.
Please click on the link and register if you would like to play. You may enter as many times as you like at $100 per entry. You do NOT need to register multiple times to do so, simply click on the ‘Your Picks’ tab and select add entry.
You select one straight up winner per week per entry, you may not use the same team twice per entry. In the event you get eliminated in the FIRST TWO WEEKS, you can rebuy for another $100 per entry before the next week of games start.
A TIE is a LOSS.
If we get to the playoffs and still have players remaining, your available team pool starts over again with you only being able to select a team once.
If you forget to make a pick, you will automatically get the team favored by the fewest points available to your specific entry.
As always, I will not have your laziness or ineptitude interrupt my golfing/hunting/drinking during the fall. So don’t call or email me last minute to change picks, no exceptions.
50% will go straight to the BHE Dad’s Club
5% will go to fees for running the pool and some happy hours along the way.
70% 1st place
20% 2nd place
10% 3rd place
If we have people eliminated on the same week, they will split the money.
3 people left and two lose, the losers each get 15%.
4 people left and two lose, the losers each get 5%.
If more than 3 are left and they all lose, the whole pie with be split.

Please make a note of your team name and total entries when doing so.
All payments must be made before the Thursday 9/9 Cowboys vs Bucaneers game.
A word of caution before you start counting your winnings. This isn’t a March Madness bracket where Brenda from accounting with the great sweater puppies wins based on team colors.
Last year we had an incredible four way tie, and with all due respect to Jason Rother, Drew Dillard, and Jud Martin, the man we are all chasing is Glenn Valentine. The Joe Dimmagio of survival pool:
He has played only 1 entry the last two years and managed to go 37-0. To put that in perspective, if you had wagered $100 at the start of his run letting it ride and factoring in an average money line spread of -200(the favorite -6pts) you would have a little over $218 MILLION!
