Small Margin for Error in NFL Pool
There have been weeks when an 11-4 record would be good for at least a share of the lead in the Sorrento’s NFL Pool. But in Week #7 all it meant was a tie for last place in the standings.
Bob Stremich headed the 19-player field at 14-1 when the week closed out with a win by the Philadelphia Eagles over the Washington Redskins in the Monday night game. He actually had the $95 pot in the bank by Sunday evening.
Five entrants – Carlo Marinelli, Al Munro, Jimmy Kopansky, Graham Lloyd and Tim Shay – were just one win back but they all had picked Philly leaving no potential to move into first.
The results created a log jam at the top of the standings for overall regular season wins. Munro and Marinelli moved up to join John Coss at the top with 72-34 records. Bill Robertson is one win back, followed by Allan Gobert at 69-37 and Rick Carleton at 68-38.
The field is wide open for Week #8 and entry forms available at the bar in Sorrento’s lounge. Grab one next time you drop in for your favourite beverage and take your shot at the pot. It’s just $5.00 per entry and you can enter as many as you like, as long as they’re submitted prior to the kickoff of the Sunday early games.
