Not because of you afraid you might like it?
As I age it is hard to tell if I am inspired by reasoned passion or arthritic knees; most likely it is arthritic reasoning.

Worse than finding out you did, what if the did. So I think kissing your sister is a reasonable alternative. One year I think I won the contest because I just used Congrove's pick and someone said I was cheating. So left to my own accords, no one is accusing me of skull drudgery.

I was once accused of cheating, simply because I asked if I could change one of my picks before the game ...

Not because I actually did change the pick, because I didn't ... just that I asked if I could.

Irony is, had I changed that pick, I would have botched that game, because the team I was going to dump ended up winning.

Ah well ...

How sad it would be to actually cheat on a game where there is no prize. I don't think anyone here would cheat on the picks game.

If I wasn't idealistic and notional, I wouldn't be a college football fan. And therein lies the problem. To us that watch, it's an escape. To those that are in charge, it is lucre.

As you have testified, being a College Football Fan will introduce one to reality. And I must say, the reactions and responses to that introduction vary greatly. :lol:
