    Well, I'm down to two left in the pick 'em. Thats ok, I have really been impressed by a couple of dogs that I had never paid attention to before. That is the main thing I get out of this thread, the summary and the blogs. Exposure to great teams that I don't hear about often. If mine don't win, the best of luck to Guide and Indy! Guide is the coolest character I have ever seen, (per the photos) and Indy, oh my goodness gracious, youth, brains, and beauty, what more could you want? Oh yeah! A great name to go with all that!

    I am down to 3 with my picks if they make through this series. And my tie is still going.

    Yes I agree exposure to teams you don't even know about.

    Love all the pics and info in this thread.

    Any benefit to taking the flyer or SR first and then taking the RR last? Taking 2 pheasants and then taking the duck? Appears there has been some success with primary for those that have done it that way (I think is how I recall that I saw that Guide, and I'm sure others, did it). Just curious what folks much more knowledgeable than I would use as an approach/game plan on a set up like this.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one with two browsers open and hitting F5 every 30 seconds or so waiting for the call backs to be posted...
