The 'Juice' is loose
and running wild
The celebrities rebounded from the
frozen turkey's poor showing last
week as Mark "Juice" Majewski
managed to keep the celebs in the
championship hunt with his 7-2
record. Sharad Mattu showed that
consistency makes champions,
turning in a solid 6-3 week and
maintaining his hold on the lead.
The only prognosticator to go
under .500 this week was Bob
Hunt, who had another mediocre
performance. This leaves him six
games below .500 with one week
left. For anyone who bet on the
staff's "Best Bets, that trip to
Pasadena is now affordable after
a perfect 5-0 week. Chris Burke
had too much faith in former
Wolverine John Navarre, who only
managed to score one touchdown
while tossing four interceptions
in the Cardinals' 26-12 loss to
the Detroit Lions yesterday. Burke
and Filice will strive to finish
above .500 after bowl week.
