Pickems Week Three

If you follow EoP-LaxPhilly, you know our crack team of “experts” predict the winners and why.

This past weekend, the NLL only produced five games in anticipation of their Christmas break.

Ok, How that Turnout?

The Saskatchewan Swoon, Shawn Slaght, flipped a coin, albeit a Canadian coin, and lead the pack with his 5-0 record.

The Philly Phraud, Kevin Neibauer finally put together a good week and posted a 4-1.

The hardest working man in Costco, Gary Groob was 2-3.

Not to be outdone, “Muffler” Mike and our leader, Ross “I need more Sunblock” McLoughlin matched with his 2-3 result.

To the Standings

Ross bought a new Magic 8 Ball after his 2-3 but, still leads the pack with his 14-5 record.

Shawn is using the metric system but, the conversion rate plays out to a one game difference with his 13-6 mar.

Now, to the also rans. Gary, “Muffler” and Kevin are chomping at the leaders heels with each having 9 wins with 10 in the loss column.
