  1. Yes, I believe so!

    Want to hear an embarrassing story? I forgot about this week’s contest until 6:00 AM today. I came to the site, put it my guesses and then hesitated submitting as I wanted to re-think them in hopes of landing a six pointer. Then I went back to back and woke up at 8:30, missing the deadline.

    As no one else put in their picks, I would have been assured an 8 point week, which would have been within a point of Juan. I still would have lost without a six pointer (as we had the same picks for the unanswered bonus questions) but damn it would have been more exciting.

  2. I agree, but how I worded the question could lead to many different answers. If we’re talking about failure in terms of % of budget grossed, there are probably greater bombs. Poor job on my part.
