Game Overview: No one guessed the Trivia Challenge correctly. Which led to most of the scores hovering around 15. The Gilbert Arenas of the contest, OsmOnd, boasted he would take over the lead. And just like Agent Zero lately, came up short.

LD2K dropped from 2 to 10 in one game because he forgot to add in his predictions. (Was he thinking of his Las Vegas weekend?) Brillus continues to lead but it has tightened up. Only 20 pts separates the Top Ten. If you are in the middle of the pack, have heart, you are not far behind. A good game or two and you will be right back in the hunt for the ‘Hoodie.’

(Lesson: If you want to be “The One”, don’t miss a game.)

    I think its actually the hawks, playing at the georgia dome in the late 1990′s. They had 62046. Source georgiaencyclopedia.org

    “While playing at the Dome the Hawks broke the NBA single-game attendance record with 62,046 fans and went on to break the single-season home attendance record as well.”

    “Team that holds the record for highest attendance in a regular season” (that’s regular season, not a single game)

    The Hawks you mentioned was the number one single game. Detroit had number two, and Minnie number 3 with 49,000.

    Fatty to Discontinue Game Preview and Prediction Contest

    Sorry to do this, but working with TLN Staff has become increasingly hard, if not nearly impossible for me.

    I really enjoyed putting together the Previews and Contest, but feel TLN has given me very little choice but to do this.

    My last four Previews and Results have been extremely hard to get staff here to even post. I’ve worked very hard to be timely and thorough. Then submitting them at 5-7 in the AM and waiting for hours, some of them have made it to the site 6-8 hrs later, and only after several emails to remind them to do their job. One prediction article was refused because it was considered unacceptable. Only after repeatedly insisting, was it finally posted.
    Further, emails and messages are rarely returned. Making a committment to TLN has been a one sided affair. I always tried to keep my word in such matters and take it very seriously, I wish a similar effort would have been recipricated from TLN.
