It's been a long day and I don't have much in the way of motivation to write this post. However, I don't let tiredness stop me from updating the Saturday Tip Comp. A few players went close last week, which could well have put some pressure on the leaders. But as John McCrirrick says: ''Close, but no cigar.'' Only one player found a winner and that was Shukman who is now in third place with 9pts. I'm pretty sure you know the two people who are doing an Irish Jig to River Dance. Rawnsley sits in pole position with 37.25pts, while Mixerman has 33.25pts in second place. Fourth and fifth positions are held by HCE and Racing Mama. They are so far behind that I won't detail the points. The other players have not one single point between them. Who will win? Is it simply a battle between the two or could someone, somehow, find a big priced winner? Considering most will be looking for a biggie a winner might just scare the leaders. In truth, we have a high wall to scale. Plenty of meetings to choose. 1 PM Deadline. Good luck to all.
