I’ll give you a break, but please post your list without those spaces between names, it also screws up the cut and past onto the spreadsheet.

Sorry—didn’t realize the deadline was tonight instead of tomorrow morning. I was scrambling to copy and paste from my notepad from last years’ list and it had those spaces. Here is the non-space version:

Criscilla Anderson
OJ Brigance
Mel Brooks
Jimmy Carter
Rod Carew
Ric Flair
Teri Garr
Bret Hart
Dave Mustaine
Linda Nolan
Drew Pinsky
Donald Trump
6ix9ine

Thank you so much!!! BTW, that was some scramble, you had one minute to spare!

Seriously??

You don’t want your picks poached, post just a few minutes before the deadline.

Speaking of which, I expected @CAMJAY77 to post a list at 11:58pm CST, as s/he usually does, but s/he is absent from this thread.

Luckily most of my picks were still around :wink:
