Good morning. David Stern voided Weekend Predictions.
Seriously, it’s common for my staff of researchers — cough, cough — to close it down after the college football regular season. But we’ll return for a special bowl edition of Predictions in a couple of weeks.
Also wanted to mention that the national grand prize winner for the “Sack Schultz” contest was Atlanta’s Randy Miller (contest code name: Atlviper). Randy won a $5,000 trip to Hawaii, which I will be holding for him for $1,000 ransom.
Randy went 169-41 in 14 weeks. We had 10 other contestants with 168 wins. I finished with 157 wins, which placed me 1,177th place out of roughly 7,000 entries, which was as high as the AJC would permit me to finish.
More importantly, I’m kicking butt in Weekend Predictions and I’m absolutely destroying Zach Klein and Mark Bradley in Pro Football Challenge (which you’ll find in every Sunday AJC).
So who needs a trip to Hawaii?
OK. I do. Or did.
