Default ESPN Streak for the Cash Discussion thread

Monthly pool idea was shut down, so have to scrap that, but we still could have a thread on here to trash talk, discuss picks, brag about streaks, etc. New month starting up soon, so have to load up on picks these next few days or just try again in February. Anyone else actively play it?

haven't played in a while after losing my 21 wins streak on darts, and the winner only had 27 wins. (This was when the prize was 1 million)

You had a 21, and you picked darts?

I play every day, but the best I've ever done was a W12. My biggest problem is I have no patience to wait for stuff I actually know about (baseball, football, hoops). Every morning when I get to work, I check espn and pick some random soccer game or tennis match and it screws me up.

I mean honestly, pick one winner a day in the NBA or something and in a month you should have a 20-30 streak, right? It seems so easy!

The current leader is 20-0, he's smart with that. I'm up to W6 now, was going to pick Sharapova and would have had it right, but Ferrer running long I lost confidence in my pick.

Anyone remember ESPN's old triple play game? Every day you logged onto the site (if you were a member) you got 3 players who had games on that day. In fantasy type way whoever had the most "points" (goals, runs, hits, points, yards etc etc) won some prize. I think they gave away cash at the end of each month too.

Kinda miss that game

ESPN Streak for the Cash is year round and applies to all sports

MLB Beat the Streak is baseball only

Liking Wisconsin, Wild, and over on Serena/Sloane, too bad they're all at the same time.

I have become addicted to this game! My highest has been W6 but I think I need to be a bit more patient with my picks.

I'm told that I'm a pretty lucky person from people I know. But I guess that luck doesn't carry over to this game. Went 0-3 yesterday. Picked Real Madrid, Duke, and OKC Thunder and there was a tie and two loses. This game is not for me.
