It's there and ready to go. All we need is players. I missed doing it last year but nobody sounded like they were interested. Hopefully we'll have some interest this year. I actually enjoy doing it, whether I know anything about it or not.

Are we still talking about the football pool?

Will there be just one division, or will there be a senior competition for guys like Luca and MDDad?

One division. Seniors get a 10% discount on coffee with their AARP card.

Pro golf had the wisdom to change the name of the Seniors Tour to the Champions Tour. I propose we should be just as wise.

And if Luca and I will be the only two guys in it, you can give me the trophy now.

Maybe John Q. can get Metamucil to sponsor the Luca/MDDad face off.

Log in/Register on the right side of the site's front page or a direct link here. http://www.occonnect.com/wp-login.php

If you haven't registered for the pool before - it's best to use the same name you use on the forum. Yes, you have to register for it separately. If you have registered (a lot of people have) and you have trouble logging in, try the "forgot my password" link before asking me for help. I'm not even sure if I can with Wordpress.

So JQP, when will we be able to see who is signed up etc...?

and reminder not to forget to sign up..."Winning isn't everything; It's the only thing." who said this?

Hint College, don't look it up if you do not know...just wait...may surprise you.

I dunno. I have a list with 80 names on it, most of which are actual people, but we can't know who's playing until they submit their picks.

My question is, when do we start? All games played count toward the final score, so do we wait for league games to start or do we start with non-league? We started September 17th last time and it looks like most, if not all, were non-league. It looks like the first weekend with a full slate this year starts on August 24th. League isn't for another month.

The 24th it is. I'll make a board-wide announcement when I have time.

I just looked at the registration page and it seems to work alright. There is a slider CAPTCHA device on it that you have to slide and it didn't work the first time I tried it but it did the second time. Maybe I didn't slide it all the way or I did it too fast. I don't know, but it did work.

And I found out that I can create users and change passwords. I'd need a user name and a valid email address for either of those and it's sort of a pain for me, so I'd really appreciate it if people try registering or recovering their password themselves before asking. But if it doesn't work for you, send me a PM.

OC that is what most think but that is not correct! The quote is attributed to Bruins football coach Henry Russell...
