Do any FM rubes play the Free to enter Streak for the Cash game on ESPN.com?

http://streak.espn.go.com/

Anyway you try to pick correctly 25 straight sports games to qualify for the $1,000,000 pay out. Each month the contestant who picks the most winners gets $2500.

I have made it to 11 twice but it's tough.

Last night was a tough loss for this guy who had 24 straight wins going into the Pack game!

Streak for Cash player loses out on big prize with Packers' loss

ESPN.com

Greg Reynolds of Chico, Calif., grew up in the same hometown as Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Monday night, Rodgers and the Packers cost him a chance to win $1 million.

Reynolds picked Green Bay over New Orleans in an attempt for his 25th straight win in ESPN's Streak for the Cash game. But the Saints, playing at home on Monday Night Football, beat the Packers 51-29 to make Reynolds the second player to lose after reaching 24 wins.

Samuel Louis-Charles of Miami is now the leader with a streak of 23 straight wins. He picked the Saints on Monday.

Reynolds got to 24 consecutive wins on Sunday night in dramatic fashion, when Indianapolis beat San Diego on a last-second field goal. Earlier in the day, he reached 23 wins when the Baltimore Ravens routed the Philadelphia Eagles 36-7.

Reynolds' streak began Oct. 24 when Stardom Bound won the Juvenile Fillies in the Breeders Cup. He got a second horse racing win when Zenyatta won the Ladies Classic.

Reynolds, a graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and a San Francisco Bay Area sports fan, won two games Saturday (Clemson and Boston College). He's won nine times with college football picks. He also picked up a win with Brock Lesnar over Randy Couture in MMA on Nov. 15.

He nearly lost his streak on Nov. 14 with a push (Allen Iverson had 25 points and four assists to match Kobe Bryant's 29 points).

Two players lost long streaks on Sunday when the Carolina Panthers lost to the Atlanta Falcons.

Jordan Fulkerson of Louisville, Ky., had 24 wins before picking Carolina. Katie Kaufmann of Minneapolis had 23 wins before also picking the Panthers.

Scott Conant of Moscow, Idaho, who had 23 wins heading into Saturday, lost his streak when he picked Wake Forest to beat Boston College.

So let's make a REAL Million!... grin

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
