(Dec. 10, 2013) – As we wind down our little contest, the year-long race for the top prize on the fan and media side is looking almost certain with MachineGunKelly with a comfortable 3 game lead on the fan side with only six state title games to choose this week and on the media side a rookie, “Magic” Mike Stancik who freelances for the Loudoun Times-Mirror and Viva Loudoun among other publications, is up 4 games on defending champion Carl “Big Cat” Lukat.
There is a lot of exciting stuff happening this final week, however, as we are paying out the top 3 spots on the fan side — 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 or Leesburg — and we have ValleyHokie of Purcellville holding onto a 1 game lead for second over a trio at 15o wins (antman of Sterling, hokies85 of Ashburn and Mtneer32 of Charles Town). And another 3 fans are just 1 back of that final money spot — Fighting Illini of Charles Town, SwenAB of Sterling and The Oracle of Potomac Falls.
Fan of our website for years will know that The Oracle owned the crown of You Pick”em in the LPS days and that Mtneer32 won the contest last year and is threatening to get a payout this year!
It is ever more exciting for our playoff prize of $50 to the fan with the most picked right and another $50 to the local high school. There is a 3-way tie at 69 for the money between Antman of Sterling, Arturo1016 of Ashburn and MuttonNick of Ashburn with Bama of Purcellville just 1 game back and a whopping 5 players at 67 waiting for the leaders to falter this week.
Our tiebreaker this week is REALLY important as it will be use to break all ties for money spots!
The season winner from the LoCo Experts will get $100 donated to their favorite charity.
