A memo from my chief statistician, Melissa A. Hartman reads: “And so, the contest comes to a close. Sadface.”
It is true that our “Beat The Putz” pro football contest has come to an end for the 2017-18 regular season. (John Pellan, of Westfield won Week 17 with a 12-4 record and 58 tiebreaker points)
But fear not football fans, the playoffs are set to begin. Much excitement still lies ahead.
I went .500 in the final week of the regular season with an 8-8 record, finishing the season-long campaign 140-81.
Congratulations to all of our weekly winners who claimed a gift certificate to The Tavern Restaurant. Each one of our 15 weekly winners will now be entered into a random drawing for our grand prize, a flat-screen television, courtesy of Manny’s TV & Appliances.
The winner will be announced in the coming days.
