After Christmas Karly Jumps Back on Top

By KrisComments Off on After Christmas Karly Jumps Back on Top

After a lot of jockeying for position yesterday Karly managed to just barley stay out front in the standings. There still a big pack of players behind Karly itching to take the lead. It’s still anyone’s game as we head into the final week of bowl games before the Championship.

Karly somehow manages to stay on top, making other pickers ask “Whhhaaaa Happened?”.

Karly is now joined by Michelle at the top of the standings with five pickers tied for second and eight tied for third! It’s a close battle as we head into the majority of the bowl games over the next week. It’s going to be an epic battle worthy of the 20th year of Bowl Pickins! There are six games on today so keep an eye on the leader board and see who emerges victorious!

There is early drama in the Bowl Pickins this year! The grand champion is missing in action. Is this a strategy to intimidate other Bowl Pickers? Is she still laboring over that final pick?

Bowl Pickin’s 2014/15 Roundup

The 19th Annual Bowl Pickins competition is in the books and Ann has claimed her second Grand Championship! Ann fought for the lead early in the competition before fading back. She re-emerged just in time to take the trophy. She had the longest streak and picked the closest score in the final game. Impressive!

Mikyle is always a threat and proved to be a strong contender again this year but couldn’t quite pull off the victory. Grant made an awesome run and just didn’t have the picks fall his way in the end. Watch out for him in future games!

There were a ton of people tied in the number of wins in the middle of the pack. Mindi emerged ahead of all of them by picking 64 total points in the final game. Scott and Kris won the exact same amount of games and picked the same final score only missing by 6 points! Steve also had the same number of wins and was 6 points off the final score the other way. A true three way tie!

Karen shook her last place demons and actually had a run for the lead at one point in the season. All time win leader, Ken, took a major tumble in the standings this year. Josh took the dubious honor of finishing last earning himself the toilet bowl.

Thanks to everyone for another great year! Congrats to the Winnah!

It’s been an exciting season of Bowl Pickins! One game remains. Once the final game is played I’ll put up some stats and the final standings of the season. It’s the Bucs and Ducks for the win!


Ann is the Grand Champion!!! (For Real This Time)

By KrisComments Off on Ann is the Grand Champion!!! (For Real This Time)

Ann shocks Bowl Pickin nation knocking Mikyle out of the lead and taking the win of Bowl Pickins 2014/15!! With a guaranteed loss in the Championship there is no way for Grant or Mikyle to come back to win. Mikyle has been a force to be reckoned with since he joined Bowl Pickins and we are sure to see him at the top of the standings again next year. Grant made a serious run at the top spot but came up short with East Carolina’s loss to Florida. This gives Ann her second championship after winning 9 years ago in the 2005/06 Pickins competition. She joins Steve, Scott, and Karly as a 2 time winner! We still have a few games to go, who will take the toilet bowl in last place? Whoever finishes in the top ten gets to sit on the top row of the pick sheet next year. Stay tuned!


Ann celebrates as all the other pickers look on


Anne Ties the Lead in a Shocker

By KrisComments Off on Anne Ties the Lead in a Shocker

In surprise win last night Ohio State kicked the snot out of Alabama. That takes Ann into a share of the lead with Mikyle. But with Alabama out of the championship game Mikyle is guaranteed a loss in the final game. The playoffs sure are making things interesting! There are only seven games to go and there are a lot of pickers still in the hunt. This is going to be epic!
