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

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
