Don’t hate the Hatelys because they’re beautiful.
It just so happens that they’re great at Gridiron Green, too.
Last week, it was Carolyn “reddurango” Hately that won our Gridiron Green.
This week, it was Rob “sparky” Hately that won our Gridiron Green.
Last week, Carolyn Hately picked 12 of 14 correctly to win our top prize.
This week, Rob Hately picked 13 of 14 correctly to win our top prize.
They both finished one right pick left of the national Gridiron Green champion, too.
This week, Cindy Anderson of Traverse City, Mich., scored a perfect 14-for-14; it’s tough to beat perfect.
Locally, “edonelan” leads our Week 2 winner Ann “packerfan” Laws 92-91, while “tnewhard” and “tholeman” share the Gridiron Gold at 90 points.
Me? I went 9-5 to lift my season total to 73-58. Thanks for asking.
