There were pitfalls this week.
River Ridge. Lennard. Freedom.
But the best at avoiding them? The Yoda Master and Cowboys, who both finished 11-5 to take the early lead in the 2014 Pick 'Em.
Yoda Master took Countryside, St. Petersburg and Osceola is some of the week's tougher games. Cowboys bounced back from taking Wharton and Lakewood to score with some gutsy picks like Brandon, Sunlake, Lennard, Osceola and Freedom.
Yoda Master said his victory was for all the little people.
"Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmmm? Hmmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force and a powerful ally it is."
Some familiar faces made a charge, with 10-6 record, like JK, cjm04, @RonCanTailgate and Coach Puskas. Eight people in all finished a game behind the winners.
At 9-7 was longtime HomeTeam hornet skurdhidingid, and someone named Bonzo Dogbreath.
At 8-8, defending champion John C. Cotey, Times hacks Jeff Odom, Mayy Baker and Kelly Parsons, local fan ETC28 and local legend Justin Miller.
Of the 80 players this week, 37 finished below .500.
Including you, Stacy Chmelik. Let's pick it up, okay?
The Week 2 Pick 'Em will go up later this week.
Here are this week's results:
