Well I’m glad that my Cup pick came through on Sunday night (and that Mystery Picker wound up in DFL 40th place!) but Memorial Day weekend wound up being kind of a downer overall for me.
First, we had rain. Lots of rain. More than enough to ruin the BBQ I was supposed to go to. Then My one day of work—Sunday—we had our roof leaking. And guess who had to mop it up every half hour when the buckets overflowed? Monday was a waste as well, as my plans to get together with some old coworkers for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals fell apart because apparently one of them got food poisoning over the weekend. This is as good a time as any to remind you that the less you know the person running the cookout, the more well-done you should have them cook your burgers.
Xfinity Series Pocono Green 250 (1 win)—Kyle Busch: CHALK!
Cup Series Pocono 400—MYSTERY PICKER (4 wins) PICKS Aric Almirola. Favorite (2 wins): Denny Hamlin—just too tough to pick against the Pocono master. Next Favorite: Martin Truex Jr. (1 win)—yep, its still the Toyotas (and SHR Fords) dominating. Dark Horse: Ricky Stenhouse Jr.—for the record I’d have picked AA if Mystery Picker hadn’t.
