HH's Hump Day NFL Pick'em Finale

New, comments

Guess what day it is??? As we start the new year, Mike Harar wraps up his weekly pick'em contest for 2013.

Since the last Hump Day Pick'em post, there has been one more season-ending unwatchable loss by the Redskins and severe upheaval over at Redskins Park, including the firing of Mike Shanahan and most of his staff.  As the Redskins sputtered into the end of their season, the staff and I also limped across the finish line, finishing out the final week with a record of 6-9-1.  That gave us another disastrous week with 6 total points.  Would that be enough to hold off the interminable contestants?  Here are the Week 17 results:

Congrats to washingtonwin!!!!  This is his third win of the season and he ends the year tied with SkinsNJ for the most amount of Pick'em victories in 2013.  He was also a very eager contestant who has already done the math and emailed me his address.  Your prize will be sent out to you right away.

Since we have a fairly regular list of contestants from week to week and I've noticed some competitive juices flowing as the season went on, I thought a final leaderboard would be appropriate:

So many memories.  So many fabulous prizes given out.  So many losses for me and the staff.  As for the staff, most of them faced the same fate as Shanahan and crew this week.  With a season ending record of 114-135-8, it was clear that changes are needed and we are in the midst of interviewing candidates for replacements.  Monkeys who know how to throw darts are being considered.

As for you, the readers and contestants, thank you all so much for making this season fun and participating as you all did.  With the regular season over, we will put the Hump Day Pick'em on hiatus for the offseason while we retool and come back next year with a vengeance.

Thanks again and Happy New Year to all!!!!
