NFL Football Pool Game X

Post by Marianne » Sun Aug 03, 2014 12:53 pm

Is anyone ready for some Football??

We are entering our tenth season of this game here on Sound Machine. Here's hoping we get all our former players back to play another season. New players are welcome too of course.

This year, I am going to bypass opening up the game for Pre-Season play. The last two seasons, we've had only one or two people show up for Pre-Season. And since I'm facing some difficulties in my life right now, I think it's better we wait till the Regular Season to start official play. But I thought I'd set up this thread to let folks know I still intend to run the game, and hope folks start checking in to let me know they are playing.

Come on in and get ready to play!

4. 59.118 Jim Anello



Well, I got Week 1 on the books! So far so good! Until I get settled in at my sister’s house, I will not be posting/compiling the recaps/stats stuff like I have previous years. It’s too time consuming. Besides, I’ll be losing the website I post that on once I move and lose my Comcast account (Comcast not available in her area, otherwise I’d try transfer my account there). So I also have to find a site that offers some sort of free web page hosting that I can also post Excel spreadsheets on. So in the meantime, if you have any questions on how I got to your score, please feel free to contact me, and I’ll send you a spreadsheet to go over and see if I’ve made any errors. Thank you for your patience and understanding as I transition this stage of my life.
