Apparently, the football beat used the bye to take a week off from their picks. In six games, not one prognosticator managed to pick the winner. Stephanie and Gabe both managed to turn in below-.500 performances and back into the lead.
Ian was too busy thinking about hitting the open road to double check his picks as he becomes the first writer to fall below .500 this season.
Venegoni evidently spent too much time this weekend playing with his sister’s dog Gus and not enough researching his picks. Maybe he would have been better off using the bye week to enjoy a relaxing cruise on Lake Minnetonka.
