For the first time since the bowl pool began, Jordan Glickson has slipped from the top position. He's been relegated to second, where he lurks ten points behind with revenge on his mind. To the features:
The Day's Biggest Winner:
We'll give this one to Tom Fisch, who gained a ton of points and vaulted into the lead with 120.
The Day's Biggest Loser:
Tom Cowell, who lost ground and now sits in last place with 13 points.
The Helter Skelter Watch
A recent rash of favorites winning has hurt Patricia, who is now hovering in 12th place at 5-4, her lowest position since the tournament began. Death watch for helter skelter??
The Schneid Watch
Nick Thomason was the last one off the schneid, and has since moved up nicely, but instead of demolishing the schneid, we'll make this feature a 'lowest-record' watch. Tied for last place in picking record, at 2-7, are four entries: Nick, Justin, Adam, and Charles. Justin holds schneid bragging rights with the lowest point total among those four, at 21.
The Brothers Watch
The Fisch Brothers, Tom and Joe: 2 entries, 200 points, average: 100
The Mooney Brothers, Dan and Brendan: 2 entries, 166 points, average: 83
The Brothers Forsythe, Jeremy and ?? (fill me in, J): 1 entry, 60 points, average: 60
The Thomason Brothers, Nick and Eric: 2 entries, 111 points, average: 55.5
The Ryan Brothers, Steve and Dan: 2 entries, 107 points, average: 53.5
Young vs. Old
We still don't know who the youngest competitor is, but he or she is certainly beating the oldest, Tom Cowell, who currently sweeps dust in the cellar.
The Over .500 Club
Some new faces! The club roster now reads: Tom, Spike, Dan, Billy, Patricia, Brendan, Noah. Billy and Brendan lead the pack with 6-3 records.
