NFL Playoff Pickem Champion: rcade: This news is ridiculously late to everyone but me -- the NFL Playoff Pickem champion is Rogers "The Greek" Cadenhead. I really wish I'd placed an actual bet on the Chiefs to win by 3. I still have one more week to hit the tiebreaker, since I predicted a Taylor/Travis breakup on April 27.

NBA Pickem Champion: rcade: Another NBA regular season is in the books and the SportsFilter NBA Pickem champion is Rogers "The Greek" Cadenhead. Ufez Jones made a late climb but a blown Celtics lock against the Bucks at the start of the final week kept them too far back. I probably won't be buying the Wilson Evolution basketball I owe me.
