 JIM HENNING EDGES DICK HAMMERSTROM TO WIN 2006 TITLE - DEB POW
     Jim Henning was correct on two of the three games he disagreed with Dick
Hammerstrom and finished 11 points ahead of Dick and 15 ahead of 3rd place Nelson
Slagle. Fourth place was 87 points behind third.  Jim picked wins by Kansas City and St
Louis while Dick was correct on New England's win.  Nelson and Jim had the same 16
winners.  Deb Cummings was Predictor of the Week for the third time as she had 12
wins.  The two gals were the top two predictors this week.
     Three predictors easily beat the Odds this year.  This is only the 3rd time in the
last 20 years that the Odds haven't been in the top 3.  They would have been first
10 of the last 20 years.
     Jim Henning was the 19 different predictor to win in the 40 year history of the 
contest but only the 3rd new predictor since 1987.  
     Predictors picked the winning team 61.44% of the time which is the lowest % since 
2000 when the winning % was 60.56 
     Randy Lang finished 15th but picked the most winners.  This is the lowest finishing
player ever to pick the most wins.  The prior record was by John Drew who finished
10th in 1998 and picked the most wins.
