Good day, everyone. Nah I'm faking. It's 2020, and I know a lot of you folks are reluctant to make any sports picking right now or even make any choices at all. I get it. But I'm typing this tonight because I love picking football with all my heart, and it pains me to see so many people not competing to see who makes the best choices.

I've met less than half of you. However, I've read your bonus responses, and through you, I have posted things that have surely changed the course of our lives. Through blood, toil, spit, grit, and stick-to-it-veness, we are still mostly hanging in there despite the World trying to stop us.
That's the story of Pickem-Dash-Football. I'm not sure there is much else to say. We just need to grab our comfortable shorts and t-shirts and be willing to do what needs to be done to pick thirty or so games a week. Even when you're exhausted, you're mustering up unimaginable courage to pick up your phone/computer and fight for that perfect card.
So, it is up to you to add your voice to the best pick'em game on the planet. It is up to you to make your mark on pick'em history. Picking is not just feeling, but doing. Do it for yourself. Do it for the kids. Do it for everyone, but definitely also do it for the kids, because you are going to want to be able to look a kid in the eye after this season and know you picked the crap out of 2020. Indubitably.
Ready to sign up? Everything is free this year. Fill out the registration form and you'll be in.
