Pick 6 Update
The day game and holiday caused the update to be skipped this week but here's a quick run-down of the season so far: jacksorbetter has taken over first place, I'm in second, then Jim and then Nordhagen and lisa523 round out the top five. jacksorbetter is also charging up the SB Nation-wide standings and is currently knocking on the door of the top ten.
