Pigskin 'Buffs' Tie Again

Climb To 733 AverageIt

was the same old story as results of the second Jax Air

News pigskin pickings once again found regulars Ron Davis, Bill
Weeks and the Editors tied, this time with 11 correct pickings

each out of 15 games. They upped their average over the previous

week's percentage to .733.

Guest selector, Bob Caskey, although finishing with a very
respectable .666 percentage ((10 of 15)), still failed to outwit the Jax

Air News' team of "experts."

ALTHOUGH OUR "EXPERTS" have shown a remarkable

average thus far, this week's selections pose as hard lots to tackle.So .
with nitted brows and crossed fingers, they will again go out

on a limb.
(Guest selector this week is Joe O'Brien, PII3, Jax Air News
