Congratulations, tahoemoj!

The contest winner prop effectively takes 5 points off the first place player's lead before the game starts for everyone else close to the lead who picks themselves to win. That wasn't enough. You were like every single running back, wide receiver and quarterback in tonight's game and could not be stopped.

I think this is my first Costanza!

I couldn't be more proud. Everyone tries to achieve perfection, but there has to b....

Wooooooooo!!! Winner, winner!!!! This is the second-proudest day of my life - right there between #1 (winning that pub crawl in undergrad) and #3 (the births of my children).

Thanks for running the show, rcade. Email with zubaz delivery instructions to come soon.

Congratulations tahoemoj.

rcade-- to collect my swag/booty/zubaz-y goodness, should I email you my info through the community "contact us" link? Or do you have a better direct email that you prefer?

Well done.

But don't let tahoe's momentary exuberance fool you. He is on to Cincinnati.

I sent you an email, tahoemoj. I believe we need to receive updates periodically on the life-changing experience that wearing these pants doubtlessly brings.

I'm sitting here grumbling about the cruelty of fate. Mostly I'm grumbling about the idiot talking heads who obviously know so much more about football than Bill Belichick. Congratulations to the Eagles on their Super Bowl win. They earned it. More congratulations to tahoemoj on his impressive run to the pick' em title. Photographic evidence must be shown that you actually wore those pants. Most importantly, thanks to you, rcade, for running another great and fun pick 'em.

I sent you an email, tahoemoj

I got nothin'. But I believe I joined SpoFi 2 or 3 email addresses ago, back in the sbcglobal.net days. I checked that account, which is now largely a spam repository, and saw nothing that might be from you. I'm going to send a current email through the 'contact us' link and see what happens.

You bet your ass those will be worn. Going to Europe for 3 weeks this summer, and I see myself on multiple occasions being the "Ugly American" just to let the zubaz see the world. Also looking for an orange bow tie so that I might replace my normal tuxedo pants at my next formal event.

OK then, photos of tahoe wearing the pants while trying to cross the Ukrainian border.

My email address is my last name at gmail.com.

Those pants would look good with a fanny pack.
