If you were wondering what it takes to correctly pick more football games than HUNDREDS of contestants, Jim from Portsmouth emailed me his failure proof method.

Shortly after picking up his 'Ultimate Lawn Package' thanks to Echo and Eliot Small Engine, Jim Christie certainly gave me a new way of thinking when trying to select a winning football team.

My method of picking teams is pretty simple: I find out the estimated game-time temperature for each game and then divide that number by the number of letters in the last name of each head coach. That number is the baseline that I then compare to the likelihood of each team's mascot winning in an actual fight.
So for instance a game between the Bears and the 49ers in San Francisco with a game time temp of 70 degrees has two numbers- 70 divided by Shanahan (8.75) and 70 divided by Nagy (17.5). I subtract those numbers, and get -8.75. That means that your average 1849 Gold Rush miner would have no chance fighting a bear, so I would pick the Bears in that game every time. I did see Leonardo DiCaprio do a pretty good job against a bear in The Revenant, but he was a fur trapper or something, not a 49er. - Jim Christie - Portsmouth NH
As you can see in the above photo, my 'Team Train' teammate Hugh from Eliot Small Engine (right) presented Jim (left) with all that cool Echo gear.
I certainly hope Hugh can figure out Jim's formula by next season, because I think it's THE KEY COMPONENT in defeating 'Team Sarah'.
Congratulations Jim!
We'll keep you updated when Jim gets to use this formula for The Big Game, as he has a chance to win $10,000!
