Apparently ‘Christmas in June’ didn’t have the same ring.
Bettie Wiedo of Phoenix, aka June, nearly became the Gridiron Guru’s first two-time winner of the year by picking 15 games correctly last week.

June hit in December. And with it, a September champion was denied being the Gridiron Guru’s first double-winner in 2014.
And Betty Wiedow has the boys of December to thank.
Wiedow, aka June, of Phoenix, Arizona, along with Week 1 winner Hesperado (Marcia Kuzma of Hesperus) and KittyCent were alone at the top in Week 14,...
Over turkey week, a Hawk led the Green masses.
Frank Hawkins of Bayfield – Hawk99 – was one of only four Gridiron Guru contestants to correctly pick 13 out of 16 in Week 13.

Roger Simpson got off the Pine (Arizona) and RAMJET-ted himself into the Gridiron Green game.
Simpson, from Pine, Ariz., aka RAMJET, won the Week 9 tiebreaker to break a two-way tie for first place. Simpson picked Pittsburgh to beat Baltimore 27-24; Pittsburgh beat Baltimore 43-23.

For the second time in three weeks of this crazy little game called NFL, I found myself among the dregs of the Gridiron Green voters.
And, once again, I was not the only champion among losers.
A topsy-turvy Week 8 flipped claimed a pair of past champions in this week’s biggest losers, including riches-to-rags Week 7...
