(Nov. 21, 2013) – We played 24 playoff games — yes 24! — in the first week of the postseason and it was a week for the favorites as higher seeds took 22 of 24 contests played in 5A North, 4A North and 3A East.
One lone fan — MuttonNick of Ashburn — went 24-0 for the week and wins a Viva t-shirt and is in first place for our playoff prize money of $50 to the fan with the most picked right and another $50 to the local high school of their choice! There are, however, a lot of fans at 23 and 22 games just behind MuttonNick.
Season long winners will win cash prizes with the overall champion receiving $100, as well as $100 to their favorite local high school athletic program. Runner-up will get $50 and third place $25. Our overall winner will also win a haircut and shave combo to Roosters Men’s Grooming Center in Ashburn and Leesburg. (Email Viva editor Dan Sousa if you have a prize to add to our winners booty).
In the prize race for the season, MachineGunKelly has dead aim on first with 110 games called right — two ahead of B’Land Eddie and ValleyHokie. The second place duo have a 2-game lead on CoachBrian and hokies85 and three game lead on a group that includes CockyBobcat, Fighting Illini, Jpet, Mtneer32, SwenAB and Team Bring It.
On the media side, “Magic” Mike Stancik is in the pole position — er, the “Fox” regrets if that didn’t sound right — as he has 106 right. The “Fox” (aka Dan Sousa) is two back and a media pack of five is just three back: Cup of Joe Bushrod, Alanna Dvorak ‘Em Up, Sean “Will” Farrell, Owen “the wind blows the cradle will rock” Gotimer, and Carl “Big Cat” Lukat.
The season winner from the LoCo Experts will get $100 donated to their favorite charity.
