Who was Mark McGwire?


This was an INTENSE game! Earl held the lead going into Final as a result of four rebounds in this game. In fact, every single time Earl had the opportunity to rebound one of his opponent’s negs, he did! That’s why he’s been on such a long run! Meanwhile, a Final very worthy of Sports Jeopardy! (and betting strategy) determined this week’s victor! (For the record: I got this one playing at home, but I only answered it as my best guess for lack of anthing better.)

  1. Earl, great run! 8 wins & $40,000. Sorry, that it had to happen, but I enjoyed it, and we’ll wait til next week to see if Roderick can start a run of his own.

  2. I wonder if Vinny was starting to sweat a little.
