The next Lisa Guerrero?

Well, it’s official. My wife was able to pick the winner in just as many NFL football games on Yahoo’s Pick Em this year, and I’m sure I’ll never hear the end of it. We both ended up picking 165 of the 256 games correctly which was good enough to place us in the top 3% on Yahoo (the best record was 178). And if I’m going to get teased for merely tying her, then my buddy Mark is really in for it since he ended up with only 160 correct. Mark and I are by no means experts, but spend a few hours a week watching the games, Sportscenter and the like, and Sue, who rarely watches football and certainly not Sportscenter simply followed her instincts and was right nearly 2/3 of the time. What can we learn from all of this? That parity in NFL makes it difficult to predict the outcomes of games? That Sue communicates with ghost of Vince Lombardi? That she is simply smarter than Mark and me? Nah, that can’t be it.
