The Week One picks of the Fabris Pool are up. The format is the same as last year’s, ten games against the spread with a tiebreaker. There are two Thursday night games, so keep that in mind as to when you fill out your choices.
If you played last year, you should have already received an invite by e-mail to sign up again. You are not automatically enrolled if you played last year, so if you assumed that to be the case, take this as your wake up call.
For those who need it, here’s the invite link to enroll: http://www.funofficepools.com/joinpool.php?Passed_Pool_Key=4e5f346c71c
Okay, this year’s Fabris Pool has just been set up. Invites should be going out to everybody who participated last season. If you didn’t before, but want to do so now, click here. You’ve got until August 26th to sign up.
It’ll have the same format as last year’s pool – picking ten games against the spread.
Any questions, just let me know in the comments.
I’ve had a few inquiries about whether the pick ‘em pool will be making another appearance at GTP this season. The answer is yes. Expect to see invites to sign up go out next week. I don’t expect to change the format from last year, as everyone seemed satisfied with it.
Look for more details to come as we get closer to the season’s start.
Some time during the night, GTP enjoyed its 15 millionth visit. It could be argued that’s proof some of us need a life (probably starting with yours truly), but all I can say is thanks very much for continuing to show up here.
I’m heading down to Amelia Island today with a few law school buddies – a sort of summer practice for the Cocktail Party, if you will – so posting will be light until I get back late Sunday.
Behave, you scamps.
I finally got around to keeping one of my commitments by making a permanent page for The Montana Project. Enjoy.
And Hoppy, you’re still ‘da man.
Short line, but tasty.
- Josh Harvey-Clemons has a metabolism problem. I hate him for that.
- More Aaron Murray stat trivia.
- Aw, shucks.
- “That is going to blow a lot of phones up.”
- Check out this fun exercise over at the College Football Matrix blog winnowing out the eleven teams that are most likely to play for a national title this season.
- Non-football, but if there’s a funnier punchline in a recent crime story than “Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr said police did not arrest the dog…”, I haven’t seen it.
I’m heading out the door to go to the Amelia Island Concours, so posting will be light to non-existent for the next couple of days. Try not to tear the place up too much while I’m gone.
Blogging definitely has its rewards. One neat thing about GTP is that over the years it’s managed to put me in touch with all sorts of folks who have a connection with the football program. But I’d have to say that this story from one of my best friends, a fellow law school grad with whom I’ve shared season tickets for three decades, is the topper:
Last night I went to a UGA Business School function in which Herschel spoke for about 45 minutes and took 30 minutes of questions. Overall a great night. Before he spoke, we were able to stand in line and talk to him briefly. Then a picture was taken. I’m standing in line for a little while trying to figure out what to say to Herschel. I decided to say something to see his response. When I got to him, I shook hands and welcomed him to DC. I told him I was still a season ticket holder and that my tickets were on the 34-yard line. Then I said that I had tickets with the Georgia blogger Senator Blutarsky. He smiled and said, “Really.” I said yes then asked if he knew about the Senator. Herschel said “I sure do! That’s something.”
Herschel thinks it’s something? You remember as a kid if you met somebody famous, shook their hand and then swore you wouldn’t wash your hand that did the shaking? I’m trying to figure out what the virtual equivalent of that is.
UPDATE: Here’s a link to some pics from the event, if you’re interested.
