    Figured I should get involved with this pool as well since I'm signed up for the other game on the board. Really just took a chance on these two - hopefully they aren't the frat boys / annoying jocks of the season.

    Sorry to see you out first, euadra.


    My early favourites are Tim & Marie, who I almost picked.


    I don't think my team is gonna do very well, but they do seem entertaining at least.
