    It's that time again, so join up early and make your picks count! Last year's winner was Showtime100, and we can't let that happen again...

    It's easy to play, all you have to do is pick one team that will win its matchup each week. No spreads are used, only total points, the catch is that you can't pick the same team twice throughout the year. This league is triple elimination, which means three wrong picks and you are out.

    The winner or winners - if people survive the whole season - will have bragging rights over the next year. Feel free to amend your signature and give yourself a virtual trophy if you win it all!


    How to sign up:


    - Please do not invite non-board members to this league, I want to keep it in-house only.

    I am taking the Colts week 1 and I am not regretting it. Houston might also be up there in terms of "slam dunk week 1 picks" which don't actually exist.

    My strategy this year is to pick teams that I expect to win but hope they're going to lose.

    Colts week 1, Patriots week 2. Yeah, I guess I'm going with the same strategy.
