IMPORTANT NOTE: This post has been updated to include last-hour entries this morning. Please let me know if I have missed anyone.

Also note: Although I am throwing in an entry fee for myself, I've decided that I'm not actually playing in our game, because I see everyone's picks as they come in, and that could give me a strategic advantage, particularly as the season nears its end. 

Good luck, players!

The platform used for this blog is awfully wonky when it comes to comments. It may work for you, it may not. It's a Google thing, and beyond my control. Apologies if you can't get through. You can email me a comment at, and if it's appropriate, I can post it here for you.
