Bowl Mania 2009

After a stellar 4-8 season, my team didn’t make it to a bowl game this year.  And since I wasn’t too impressed with Big 10 football this year, I wasn’t all that excited for the bowl games.  But of course, you give me the chance to excel at any type of sports betting (outside of a bookie), I’m in.  So I joined 3 pools.  2 free, 1 paid.  I used the same outcomes in each league as I am lazy and didn’t want to track multiple sheets.  Turns out I didn’t do too shabby.  I didn’t give much love to the Big 10, only picking Iowa as a winner.  I did pick 18 of 34 games.  13 of my top 17 points came in for me, but missing Alabama and Texas Tech really screwed me.  My final rankings were: 

  • 1st out of 14 – Friends League
  • 5th out of 85 – My “Dad’s” (aka Mr. Dan Dakich) League thru 1070thefan.com
  • 11th out of 65 – Co-Worker League

To bad the only thing I won in the friends league is an imaginary championship belt, the first place prize for smack talk, and bragging rights to a bunch of dudes for the next 11 months.  Bring on March Madness now!
