I was playing before it was cool and I had to explain it to almost everyone. Just to put in perspective:
--I found a program that I ran on my Tandy1000 pc
--I had to manually enter the stats from the newspaper
--You called in your picks on the phone...yes a landline without an answering machine
--You had to call me or drop by the house to find out your scores
--In our third year, the program I used began offering a stat download service through Compuserve
--AOL and Compuserve were about the only thing on the internet, other than BB's
--I was excited when I got 14.4 modem
So, I have been playing since 1987...and in all that time, I have NEVER won the damn championship. My wife won the second year she played, that's the only time the traveling trophy has been in our house.
Every year I say I'm done, but they just keep reeling me back in....
