P-F13: Paid in Full (Week 10 NFL Bonus)

16 of the 28 teams have paid. What do I do now?



Thinkin' of a master plan
'Cuz ain't nuthin' but sweat inside my hand

EXCUSES:

Whine about the remaining 12 in every email for the next 3 months? - chicainery (CCa)
I'm not into whining, but +3 for the math (28-16). You were always a good student.

Start an over/under on the remaining members to pay out before the end or the regular season. Gary should be a 15:1 odds to pay out before Jan 1 - 93Bronco (GF)
Finally, a way I could profit off of this pick'em game. Establish a gambli-- oh wait, never mind. +3

The government shutdown my paycheck. - Naked Bootleggers (JN), Inconsistent Losers (ANe)
That is why you pay at the beginning of the season.  JN +3, ANe +8

I don't want to make family holidays awkward with a heated discussion about money on the back patio in front of everyone.
It's hard to imagine something awkward happening at a family holiday get together. +3

If I pay before Sunday can I get the 5 points? I swear I'm good for it. - AccidentChild (MN)
Everyone is good for it, until they aren't. +3

How about I pay now? And my excuse is that I suck. And I get 8 points? - Barrel Aged Donkey (KS)
This was my favorite excuse, but +3



'Cuz I don't like to dream about gettin' paid
So I dig into the books of the rhymes that I made

PUNISHMENTS: 

Who are the twelve that haven't paid... I've probably dated them. - Mrs. Carter's Moves (A-C)
This answer is so great. I didn't know whether to put this in the punishment or excuses section, though :) . +8 either way. 

Last warning, then a) kick them out and b) split up their points 16 ways. - The Northmen (ANo)
Like. +8

Halfway through the season and there are still people who haven't paid. You are a chop if you fall into this category. I feel you should implement a rule that if you haven't paid up by next Sunday, 11/10, you lose one point off your total for both college and the NFL. And one point is deducted until you do pay. That should get some people off their ass and mailing the check. - 15 National Championships (CG)
I thought we were all friends, but now I'm going to call everyone chops. +8

Deduct 5 points from everybody that hasn't paid. Or charge a $5 penalty after this week if they haven't paid. - Mississippi Mudpuppies (DR), Pimp Possee (JB)
A penalty sounds harsh, but I guess it all goes into the winnings pot. +8

5 more points if you've already paid. - The Velvet Neutral Ground (JC)
That's a week's worth of picks sometimes. +8

We should use a percentage of our pot to hire Chet as the official Pick-em league muscle. - BlitzKrieg (RK)


I thought that was what we have 15 National Championships for. +8



ENGINEERS:
Check out this spreadsheet. It would certainly eliminate non-payers forever. - Gig'em! (AP)



AND FINALLY:

all i know is "stache" - Beelzebubbles (CCo) 
And that is all anyone ever has to know ...

Lost Cause (JH)

P-F21: Week 10 NFL Bonus - Baseball is over, now what?

Losing baseball season isn’t like losing football, but it can still be a difficult event for some. While we are deprived of baseball season’s physical presence, we can still reconcile -- you know what, we’ll figure it out. Below are some ways you are honoring the memory or just moving right along. Sleep Astros! (AP): “Go to sleep on time during the week!” (3)  -- apparently you aren’t into MACtion Beelzebubbles (CC): “Now I can get some decent sleep during the work week” (3) More time for football 18 National Championships (CG): “Plenty of football and golf” (2) Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK): “MACtion!” (4) -- yes!

P-F21: Week 7 NFL Bonus: Best news of the year!

It’s a mad world. Let’s parse out some good. Everyone gets POSITIVE bonus scores! (One thing though. I forgot to add “in the NFL” to my bonus question, but maybe you guys behaved yourselves) A Northmen (AN): “Brittney's dad will no longer be her conservator! #freebritney” She went on with a bunch of crap about TSwift, but I’ll spare you. On Brit, of course, she should have the right the fk up her life. That’s great news! +4 T-Horns (AM): “Matt Jones developing earlier than expected.” Wait, are we talking about Mac Jones? +2? Astros! (AP): “OU/Texas coming to the SEC!” This is great news. See what happened is Texas got in OU’s head, then Texas “Trojan Horsed” their themselves in the SEC, where Texas will then ruin the SEC from the inside. +3 Buddy the Chimp (BC): “Bananas.” Buddy, you get bananas all the time. Dream bigger. +3 Cornholio's Bunghole (BO): “Just destroying America is not enough for Joe Biden, so he destroyed Afghanistan. I wonder what country will be ne

1 I once watched this planetarium show on dark matter. I’m familiar with matter. I’m not saying current or future me could define it, but it is like -- stuff. However dark matter isn’t the dark stuff. Dark matter is like all the other stuff that we aren’t familiar with, and on top of that, apparently the universe contains an unknown amount of matter that we cannot observe! 2 Speaking of matter, small wins matter. Not only do small wins add up to major accomplishments, but small wins have also been shown to give enormous emotional boosts. (I think you see where I am going with this.) 3 Enough said. I am ready to sign up at 3, and I am ready to fill out the registration form . 4 Each year we play 4 games that are guaranteed to keep your weekends interesting from the end of August until mid-February. 5 Game #1: NCAA Pick’em (played against the spread) 15 games per week Games will list a point spread for you to pick against Contest represents approximately 1/3 of the registration pot; Both
