    No idea why TPG shut down. For all we know Vinnie may have had a health or family emergency. Hope that's not the case, but if it is I wish him the best.

    This is an appropriate response IMO.

    I emailed him and thanked him for running the league.

    Most of you guys have no idea how much work it is to run a website for you guys. :hoops::hoops::hoops:

    Vinnie could never ever run this place. Nothing is wrong with him other than he's SICK of US. If you guys think it was a coincidence that he just HAPPENED to erase our two highest scores so that the other team inched ahead and just HAPPENED to shut down the game the second he did that...well, anyone interested in a certain bridge at a great price? Do not kid yourselves. He should appreciate our support. He ran the game for himself there are plenty of games out there.

    Ya'll go ahead and worry about his health. He shut the damned game down! Urinate some more on my shoulder some more and tell me it's raining.

    Bump that "appropriate response" politically correct B.S. ! That is YOUR opinion. You are entitled to it. From MY perspective MY response is the appropriate one. I don't even care about the stupid game. Vinnie comes over to confront us for cheating on his incompetence. Fair enough. Did he ONCE...just ONCE...in 8 years or whatever come over to congratulate us on our excellence? Our great comebacks? IMO THt would be the appropriate response from him. Huh? He took his ball and ran home because things weren't going his way.:baby:

    I just presented some facts for my point of view. Opposing viewpoint FACTS? Whatever. I actually find this whole dog and pony show very funny. :pound:Then again, I only wasted a bit a small bit of time and all but one week of those guesses were Laimbeer's so I wasted no time on research.

    As usual Darth, you are the consummate team player and community ambassador.

    Thank you!

    Vince got back to me.

    He has been out of commission because he needed an unexpected heart bypass.

    The next person who wants to talk the Picks game or Vince down, please log out and have a nice life. That will save me issuing a ban.

    Thanks in advance.

    I apologize if I said or implied anything hurtful regarding Vinny or The Picks Game.

    If you ever get a chance to read this, I appreciate you running the game, it has always been quite fun.

    Nevertheless, it's just a game and above all, we all wish for you good health.

    It's a wild gamble to not take the Pats in the Superbowl.

    This is sort of what they have been doing for 15 years.

    The commissioner said that he would "shake Brady's hand" if New England wins.
    Also...Eli, and Peyton are tutoring Atlanta on how to stop Brady.
    Third..."The Lions Refs" will be working the game...pulling for Atlanta.
