Will have my picks in before the race. I am racing tomorrow myself so i will be back late but before the race is run to put my picks in.

Mike, picks need to be in before 12pm EST time as the race, like last week, will have been run already.

Spoiler:
Dammit, I can not catch a freakin break, every sign was telling me that the Michelin guys were gonna have a chance at this race, hence, my pics, weather was going to be cool and all the bridgestone guys were having problems with their front tires. All of a sudden, weather decides to heat up and well... the rest is history.

That's it, I am not playing this stupid game next year... yeah, I'm a bad looser!

Since I'm in the lead with only 2 to go, do I play it safe and just pick what the other guys pick so I know worst case I will get the same points they get thereby staying in the lead?

Nah, I'm a racer and I play to win!

Win it or Bin it!!!!

That was priceless and I would gladly give up another 20 bucks if I knew that would happen on the next two races...

Probably hidding under crazy eye's Bossom?

You know, as much as I am a fan of Nicky, I have been asking myself this... why is he doing so good now that he's on his way out? Don't get me wrong, I am not saying he's winning races but, at the very least, he is up there dooking it out with the big boys... the same can not be said for Edwards and Hopkins but that's an entirely new thread!

I sure don't want to jinx the kid but I am hoping he can make Pedrosa and Honda eat some of that crap they were giving him now that he is moving to Ducati.

Most if not all fantasy sports pools have strict rules. Picks are not publicly posted until race/game time.

Evad 101, TuonoR6, and HondaJim: How do you want me to handle this?

I'm good. It's all fun for me. If I were to win anything I'll donate it to the site anyway. I think Dave is good on his word. He'll pick to win.

I actually agree with RC90 about the picks. I find I don't enjoy watching the races as much because I want certain people in certain spots. Kind of strange, but I like it better when I don't really care.

I'm picking who I feel can win. It's all in fun. I find a lot fun when I'm worried who's in 5th.

Its all just fun to me. I'm like Jim, if I win, I just send the money back to WristTwisters.

Since I am on the west coast, I usually pick last anyway so it doesn't matter to me.

I always try to pick different than the guys who have a chance to beat me, HondaJim and Tuono. This way I can pull out a bigger lead or gain more points to catch them. Has worked so far so I see no reason to change now.

Should be fun the last two races. You never know who's really testing stuff, who's packed it in for the season, who doesn't want to get hurt before the end with nothing to gain in sight, etc.
