I did. Ended up winning by 1.25 pts. Hoping there are no stat changes this week.
I didn't deserve to win at all this week but I'll take it :nana: :nana:...

Here is a side topic I've always wondered about regarding in-state vs out of state:
Lets say I live in Texas and want to send my kid to LSU. Below is the tuition difference from college data:
So a difference of 18k per year or 72k over 4 years.

PPR League. Choose three from my receivers:
Calvin Johnson @ Car
Julian Edelman @ Min
Reggie Wayne vs. Phi
Brandin Cooks @ Cle
Anquan Boldin vs Chi
Obviously CJ but tough to choose between Edelman, Wayne, and Cooks. Wayne had a ton of targets week 1 and should be in a shootout vs phi....

Its an incredible experience. Take a really serious approach to training. I should have trained much more than I did. The better shape you are in the more enjoyable the climb is.

BTW, if you are serious about getting a guide for a 2015 trip you need to sign up ASAP. I think they released 2015 dates a couple days ago and all 3 guide groups sell out extremely fast.
