We all need something to distract us at the minute and stop thinking about Cormac bloody Reilly but I’m afraid the best I can come up with right now is the latest update on how things are going in the NFL prediction mini-league. It’s exciting stuff, really it is – immerse yourself in it for a little while and you’ll forget we even have a match on this Sunday, still less who the ref is for it.
Long-time leader in the prediction stakes this year Conor McGinty is still out in front after last weekend’s action, with just one more full round of matches left to play (and another small round of Divisional finals after that – I won’t forget those in a hurry, for it was there a few years back that I blew my chance at winning the blasted thing outright). Two bolters have, though, emerged from the pack to challenge Conor, with Shane Tuohy moving up from fourth to second while Juan has made the jump from eighth to third.
Have they left it too late? Or have one or both of them timed their runs to perfection? And why can’t I predict my way out of a brown paper bag this year? Here’s the new leaderboard.
