Nascar Pick Challenge: Uncle Max vs. Mystery Picker—Watkins Glen


Well, I don’t have any new info on my search for the identity of “Mystery Picker”, although it was nice to beat him good this past weekend—just goes to show you that sometimes crazy strategy (like picking Alex freaking Bowman) doesn’t work.
Speaking of which, I’m going with some crazy strategy of my own next week—its renegotiation time for my rental townhouse.  Rent’s been pretty reasonable here since I moved in, but that was mostly because I had a good relationship with my old landlord.  Now with a new company in charge, their offer is about 30% higher than what I pay now—insane!  But I have a little insane of my own—time to tell them I’m looking to BUY a house, and would only re-sign with them if the rent stayed the same.  Wish me luck!

Cup Series Go Bowling at The Glen—MYSTERY PICKER (4 wins) PICKS Ryan Blaney.  Favorite (4 wins): Kyle Busch—I’ll just keep riding this train, thank you very much!  Next Favorite (3 wins): Martin Truex Jr.—a win at one of his many many home tracks.  Dark Horse: Daniel Suarez: about that time for a flukey breakthrough.
