Finally, WEC 53 Pick Results

Well, it appears that I’m just a little slow on the update here since WEC 53 was nearly 2 weeks ago. My bad. It’s still technically a anyone’s game to win the MMA Challenge this year. TJ held onto his lead, Armondo remained 1 games behind and I, well I went out on a limb and got burned and fell 3 games back. Actually, we all got burned for the most part. It’s the first event all year that no one’s picked up a .500 record or better. Probably. I’m sure I could go back and look but that would take a lot of effort. Instead, I’ll just give you our results and then a real quick look at the final card we’ll be picking for 2010, and it truly will be our toughest picking yet: Dynamite 2010!! Those will be up in the next few days, when I get them back from the guys.
