The Ladders Gods hate me.

Postby Mercer Boy » Tue Nov 22, 2005 12:15 am

I have had about enough of this game. I get 13 right and lose, and then I have a chance to tie for a win if GB can just beat the stinking Vikes AT HOME, and they still freaking lose.

I am tired of 2nd in this game. You only get so many chances to win it, and I've probably blown them all this year. I run the game, but I can't win it. I can win freaking Baseball Ladders, a game I should have no business winning because it's really hard and I don't like baseball as much...but not football which I know more about.

Yes, I am a sore loser. No one likes it, but that's my way.

So freaking frustrating and I needed to vent...things are not going well for me these days in anything.

I'm hoping I can get another solid ladder in this year. I've been foiled 2 weeks in a row by the upsets. I'm sure you'll get it eventually. I just hope I can get mine before you ;)

Well Green Bay was my number 2 pick I think so I'll get a whole whopping 1 point this week. Plus I busted on backjack scoring 23 points. Plus I lost in Sweet sixteen last week the last week before the icon. Yup I feel your pain.

Sorry MB...Looks like my prediction of Gado scoring a bazillion points for you too fell a little short.

Feel free to blame me for your loss, and post a bitching out thread in the Cafe. I will take the heat. :-D

Just my luck...once again I have all the games but one. This time, I managed to put the lost game as my 2nd choice. Stupid Oakland; how could they let Miami score that many points? :-t :~(

Provided Indy wins tonight, the Oakland game messed up a 13-rung ladder for me this week (guess I get the Unluckiest Ladder Award).

Note to self... Check Mercer's ladder before I submit picks. :-/
