LAST WEEK: 0-2, .000
OVERALL: 486-97, .834
Picking .834 for the season but missing both state semifinal selections is akin to batting .400 for the year but striking out twice with the bases loaded in the seventh game of the World Series.
Well …. not exactly. But you get my point.
What can I say? After being on fire for 14 straight weeks, this column has hit a late-season slump, going 3-5 over the last two weeks and whiffing twice in the state semis. Nonetheless, I’ve got one more game to pick and it’s a biggie.
The Hamlin Pied Pipers (12-2) will square off with perennial powerhouse Mart (12-3) for the Class 2A Division II state title, officially closing the books on the best picks season I’ve ever had.
That said, let’s dive in.
Here’s this week’s forecast and we’ll see you in Arlington.
