    Who else is getting hammered in the Gold Medal Picks?
    I should have gone to the bookies last week, and wagered that none of Kiprop, Robles, Defar, Demus, or Isinbayeva would win Gold. I wonder what odds I could have managed on that bet? Oh well, there's 65 points down the drain. At least, I have all the Relays picked correctly ...

    Sure, Demus and Defar cost me big time but not Robles so much. He's been shaky of late.
    Only lost 1 point on Isinbayeva. Getting worried for Trafton now. I finally picked Kanter for some points. Should have stayed clear of him as I usually do :x

      I'm in the same boat, which is sinking fast.
      loses
      20 Defar
      18 Kanter
      13 Robles
      11 Kiprop
      10 Demus
      6 Hoffa
      4 Stewart
      2 Kipruto

      Knew I should have just answered Bolt for all of them. :wink:

        I have decided that because I always come in near the bottom, the Pick-the-Winners contest must be just pure dumb luck, so who cares??!! :twisted:

          Thanks guys. I thought I was the jinx. I'm guessing these contests are 1/3 luck, 1/3 knowledge, and 1/3 skill. There's a person on the Visa challenge who's got 212 points. The next best is 198!! Go figure.

                    I promise after this track season is over that I am going into REHAB. I am going to kick this disease of thinking I can predict fate! Besides it ruins my enjoyment of the sport, and I mean this seriously. I miss out on much of the overall excitement of the sport because I'm focusing on MY people, and when they don't win I get down. WAAAAAH! Thanks for letting me share :cry:
