Pigskin pick'em

Would there be any interest in starting a JB forums Pigskin pick'em league? It's free at espn and all that's involved is picking the winners of each game. Linkage

Sounds fun but I will not give them the info they want to sign up.

Somewhere in here we had a thread titled "are ya ready for some football?" but it seems like the search engine can't find it.

Oops... third try was the charm http://www.johnbridge.com/vbulletin/...earchid=702484

John was complaining about the Texans then and nothing has changed.

Petered out for some reason, I think the bookie died.

Jim, don't let that be a deal breaker. You can always open a Yahoo mail account for free and give the rest as bogus info. I've done this for the past few years and the only solicitation I've received was e-mails from ESPN and you can opt out of that...
