Just a reminder to everyone playing. Q1 starts at 0710 CDT Saturday. You need to get your picks in before then. Good luck to everyone.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Updated after Le Mans. Could've snuck up another couple of places if Vinales hadn't let me down. Then again, I'm betting everyone here had him in the top 3. Very much not liking having to pick before the grid is set.  :csm:

Oh, well.  'Twas a fun time on top.
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

So here's a fun fact: I have a slight lead for the EOE cup, but everyone without a DNS -- motodog, melville, kneescrubber, and coqui -- is ahead of me in the overall rankings.

I must be making good money between P11 and P15.

This one is much more forgiving than last year if you forget to make your pics...... ;D

5 in the top 75. Pretty darn good imho; considering there is only 6 out of 8 of us playing seriously.

The more I look at motogoat the less I understand about the scoring method. Not complaining mind you, some of it just don't make much sense to me  :shrug:

Speaking of scoring, here's something I think qualifies as irony.

Remember we had the discussion about changing our rules to allow our group to make picks after qualifying without a penalty? I was one who raised the issue that although I'd rather make picks after qualifying, it could create a problem for me because I am in two groups and if they were scored differently because of a rules change after the season started then I'd be penalized. Well, we decided not to change our rules and allow picks after qualifying. So then the other league I'm in, the RevZilla employees group, DID change the rules to allow making picks after qualifying without a penalty.

So now I'm getting killed in that league because everyone else is free to choose riders after qualifying while I'm making picks before qualifying to avoid a penalty in this group.

Of course that's a poor excuse, because I'm not doing all that well in the EOE Cup this year, either. But I've thrown in the towel in the other one.

Guess it's just not my year.

Saw this coming so I bailed early. It just didn't fit my schedule to go over the data on a Friday night or early Saturday morning. Still enjoy going over the data where we total our own points, but no prizes and no super cool trophy.

So far, so good. Like everyone else, though, I'm missing the old game.

Interesting experiment this week. I'll be off the grid from Thursday through the weekend. Put in my picks today. We'll see if knowing FP1 & FP2 makes a difference (FP3 never matters to me on the left coast -- that's sleepy-time).

Seems like the EOE Cup is turning into a battle for second.
