  1. No prob on the posting, just the USPS has been dragging lately. Like a regular ground shipped box from CT to Canada beating a card envelope to Minnesota.
  2. received yet? sent 2-3 day priority last week... USPS likes to keep me wondering lately
  3. I agree that we need more players. I also agree with changing the tie breaker. Mauison should have won the tie breaker last year instead of me. But I will be in again this year. Hey guys, drop me an email & I'll send group ID & code.
  4. The Yahoo rule say it better than I can, but basically you set up a team, each week pick drivers from 3 classes, and earn points based on how they do. Not a league like Fantasy Football or Baseball where only one team can pick a driver- all drivers are open to be picked by all, caveat that you can only use a driver so many times during season.: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/sports/fantasysports/racing/rules/?pir=Zup_EWFibUngcNpcMrFQ29mxlSSZRUQadNRN.wgp5d5gHI2uYaO9L73tBhHDW0U- It's fun and exciting (especially if you're in contention, which is why I'm trying to change from winner take all to multiple winners). last year we counted every week, this year will be dropping worst week each part of season (3 parts) so if you blow a week or forget to change used up driver you won't be dead.Link to last season's thread... http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=267837&st=0&p=4929514&hl=cot&fromsearch=1entry4929514 C'mon in! The oil's fine!
  5. Had a football helmet racing travel bug log wiped day or two ago
  6. Prizes sent today to Seekerfam (Eagles) and MinnesotaBen... FarTom, please email me your mailing info... don't think Super Bowl counts enough to knock you off. CONGRATS! for winning probably the toughest of the 4 cointests!
  7. [ 11/27/11- signed up/email sent 01/03/12- received name 1/26/12- received package 1/27/12- mailed package
  8. Ditto for me... got a package from T. Briggs yesterday with a GCF US 2011 United Coin, BOC Ladder 24 coin, and January 2012 pathtag... Thank You! T Briggs- straining my memory for your GC Nick 'cause I know we've srossed paths on missions before
  9. Note; even though YAHOO league allows joining up all season, sign ups for this one close right before Daytona 'Pole Day'...
  10. NASCAR Fantasy Cointest! League is registered for those who want to re-up, and anyone who wants to play. Registration for 2012 edition has begun. As NASCAR is going to fuel injection this season, I was considering a few changes to 'inject' a bit more excitement into league for this year. All players will still be'on hook' for 1 coin... Opinions sought on following A) League open to anyone, but password sent via email upon request- email to include team name and GC name.I won't 'share' your info and you can remain hidden on group roster... but as Commissioner it's a lot easier than guessing 'who's who?' if needed. BIG CHANGE: Prize coins sent to me by 3rd race, I'll distribute at end of season. This would facilitate doing following to keep a bit more interest/incentive through season: C) Prizes to top finishers depending on number of players,first 5 go to winner then add prizes for 2nd and 3rd place. Winner always gets at least 2X 2nd place; 2nd at least 2X 3rd. Keep the game interesting for those who stumble. Also, I'll add a trackable prize for segment winners. D) Yahoo offered a 'Lucky Dog' option in 2011 where lowest scoring week not counted, should it be used? E) I Will set up a different tiebreak system, as yahoo's was pretty much undecypherable unless you have a NASA supercomputer. Was thinking of using weekly wins in Chase/Playoff segment, then overall wins, then segments won, then average segment finish. Will wait 'til after Giants take the Bowl for feedback before committing to changes...
  11. Actually, most Vikings wounds were healed watching the Packers lose to NY Giants! They've been my #2 team since as long as I can remember, after the Gints. Fran the Man was my favorite, 'followed' him back to Bloomington to join Eller & Page & Marshall, & the rest of the Purple People Eaters defense.... spent a couple of summers in Edina in mid-late '70s and saw a few Twinkee games at the Met.Loved that place! 50 cent 'Knothole Gang' seats in bleachers so close we were talking to outfielders between batters, jumping down on field after game and going into dugouts and down tunnel to locker rooms... American sports the way it should be!
  12. CONGRATS TO BEN! A week after flying a mile high ny Tebowning the men of Steel,the Bronks got Gronked back to reality and ended SodaJack's run. A small consolation prize to salve the wounds brought on by the season the Vi-queens put together. BRING BACK SCRAMBLING FRAN! Or at least Joe Kapp to show a bit of non-roid related scrappyness!
  13. 2-Strike: Minnesotaben draws first blood,, Sodajack's falls into a Mile-highdeep Pitt...
  14. 1-Strike: Eagles % Genghis keep on keepin' on... Eagles & Genghis please email through my profile your guesses for following, to use as a tiebreaker if you both pick wrong this week... and please post here when you send to make sure I get your picks (and have time to correct if I don't get your email). ALL tiebreak picks to me by NOON EASTERN on SATURDAY. If both pick losers for week, and nobody sends tiebreaks this one ends with no winner. We have a WINNER! Just as the Mile High Club backed into playoffs on tiebreaks, the Pitts getting 'Tebow'nd' allowed EAGLES (Seekerfam)tiebreak the way to victory. They & Genghis- along with 47.5% of yahoo pickers got busted by the Broncs! Good job! and you know where to send your address... (I know I have it somewhere...)

  18. 2-Strike: "LONGEST LASTING OF MINNESOTABEN, SODAJACK'S, & ST_MOOSE WILL BE WINNER" Somehow missed posting Moose being kicked by Colts on last MNF... MinnesotaBen & SodaJack's head into playoffs with clean records. Both have used up most of the big 'favorites' New England, New Orleans, San Fran, & Baltimore. SodaJack's still has Pack available as ace in the hole.
  19. 1-Strike: Eagles % Genghis keep on keepin' on... Eagles & Genghis please email through my profile your guesses for following, to use as a tiebreaker if you both pick wrong this week... and please post here when you send to make sure I get your picks (and have time to correct if I don't get your email). ALL tiebreak picks to me by NOON EASTERN on SATURDAY. If both pick losers for week, and nobody sends tiebreaks this one ends with no winner. 1st tiebreak: TOTAL POINTS TEXANS + BENGALS (closest to TOTAL wins). 2nd tiebreak (if necessary): TOTAL POINTS SAINTS + LIONS (closest to TOTAL wins). 3rd tiebreak (if necessary): TOTAL POINTS GIANTS + FALCONS (closest to TOTAL wins). 4th tiebreak (if necessary): TOTAL POINTS BRONCOS + STEELERS (closest to TOTAL wins). The Noon SATURDAY deadline is for picks to be postmarked. In case of tie after 4th tiebreak earliest, unedited pick wins..
  20. Editing to note (to avoid hurt/hard feelings later) the Noon Sunday deadline is for picks to be postmarked, doesn't mean I'll be sitting waiting & watching. In case of tie after 3rd tiebreak earliest, unedited pick wins..
