Welcome back from the holiday break boys…I hope everybody had a safe and happy New Year’s celebration. I thank God every day for soccer because it gives me something to take my mind off of how infuriating LSU football can be. And then we had a break for the FA competition so hopefully everyone is rested and ready to keep going. Also, the Northwest Derby is this week so I’d be remissed if I didn’t point out that Manchester United Football Club smells like rotten eggs…that is all.
The rules are as follows:
- Select a team from the matches listed for that week.
- Home wins and away draws provide immunity to the next round. Home losses, away losses and home draws result in elimination.
- Each team may only be used once during the competition with the exception of the mulligan round. Teams used in the mulligan round are still available to be used later in the contest.
-Failure to pick a winner by the deadline each week will result in either the loss of a mulligan or elimination from the contest.
