We knew it would happen at some point, and it just so happened to be me. After four weeks of play, I was the first person to go 0-4 in the Pardon My Take Super Bowl Pick'em Contest. If you're new here, these are the rules for this season's brand new contest:
- Big Cat, PFT, Hank, Liam, Jake, and Billy will make four picks each week (favorite, underdog, over, and under)
- The second place and last place competitor will have to DRIVE from New York City to Los Angeles ahead of Super Bowl week
I mentioned the disaster of a week for me off the top, but let's take a look at how everyone else did this week:
Big Cat and Billy led the pack with 3-1 weeks, and it's Big Cat who continues to lead the pack after four weeks. He is 11-5 overall and 9-3 in the last three weeks. On top of that, his Can't Lose Parlay hit for the second time this year, moving to 2-2 on the year. Not too shabby.
With both the second and last place finisher having to participate in this February road trip, it adds an interesting dynamic to this competition. Nobody is truly "safe" from the punishment, no matter how hot or cold you may get. Big Cat and Hank are off too fast starts this season, yet if things ended today, one of them would be joining me on this trip.
But there is a loooooong way to go, and with an extra week in this regular season, anything can happen. We will see you next week.
