Football Picks Are a Distraction From the *Real* Issues in Iraq

BUMPED: (hey, it's a friendly reminder). Get your picks in. Win fabulous prizes.

And the fires. And Globalwarmingclimatechange too.

Standings from AoSHQI, as always, temporary until PHenry rouses from his slumber.

UPDATED: Merged results of AoSHQI and II (good morning sunshine!)

1 Bart 61
2 Phenry 58
3 BostonIrish 56
4 MCaN 55
5 JavaJoe 54
5 The Core 54
5 Stashiu3 54
5 Slublog 54
5 Physics Geek 54

The rest of you suckas just got the Nikolai Yezhov treatment.

You never really existed.

13 games this week, Denver and Green Bay on Monday. Deadline is Sunday at 11:55 EDT (except for Bart, leaders can turn em in at 3:05).

BONUS AOS COVERAGE: I was going to post the bottom feeders too, but I'll hold off another week or so until it becomes obvious you suck, and aren't one of the ones who just gave up several weeks back. Instead I'll do a highlight feature on one of the mediocre pickers (like me).

This week, say hey to alexthechick, riding high at 44 after back to back 6/14 and 5/13 weeks. I am a solid 5 points ahead of her, and at this point I think it's safe to say it's a pretty insurmountable lead.

ALSO commenter hit and run asks for your support for his friend's daughter Jessica, a soccer player at UNC (some people call that football, so there's my connection. Weak, I know but there it is), who is a finalist for the Lowe's Senior Class Award in NCAA Women's Soccer.

Help a moron's friend out. You'll be glad you did.
