Why our predictions panel rates a less than perfect 10
People can be divided into 10 types: those who understand binary and those who don’t.
I mention this only because a look down our scores for this week would reveal a great many ones and zeroes, and very few fives.
To recap: in this game, you get a point for predicting the right result from the English football, but make that five if you bag the correct score.
The big winner for us this week was Simon Evans, our man in Miami, who is the new leader after grabbing 14 points, including correct scores on Villa and Bolton.
Other than that, there wasn’t much to shout about on our side of things. Here are the latest scores…
Reuters Soccer Blog: Simon Evans 46, Kevin Fylan 42, Paul Radford 41, Patrick Johnston 40, Justin Palmer 35, Miles Evans 35, Mitch Phillips 35, Mike Collett 28, Neil Maidment 26, Julien Pretot 25, Mark Meadows 16, Asia Sports Desk 15
Rest of the World: No time to go through all the entries, but it did look like a terrific week for Chipking. Looks like the Chipmeister got three on the nose. Must be way out in front by now. Decent start from a couple of newbies as well, by the looks of things. Remember, in this game you keep your own score. Just tell us where you stand … we’ll believe you.
Let us know how you did in the comments, and feel free to rush over to the glass windows at Reuters Soccer Blog Heights making “shush!” gestures, in the style of Mr. Olic.
Back on Friday for more… But if you’re in the mood for more things binary, check out the guitar solo here…
