Pond-ering a Ducks Dilemma 

November, 16, 2010

Is there anyone hotter than me? I think not! Over the past three Tuesdays, I've been deadly accurate, picking 14 of 17 winners. That number would have been one better if the Ducks hadn't stung the Sharks in OT last week -- a tough loss to swallow, considering that Patrick Marleau and Team Teal outshot the once-mighty Ducks 41-20. They just couldn't get the winner.

Oddly, the Ducks have accounted for two of my three incorrect prognostications during this run. And they're on the card again tonight. What to do?
