    And now, for the mother of all Pick Em weeks, welcome to... ThanksPicking 2020
    The concept remains the same, but with 30 potential points on the table, now is your chance to vault up the standings! Or, to cement your place in the Pick Em cellar. No pressure, though...

    The value of each pick is in parentheses after each team. Favorites are worth 1, while underdogs are worth 2 or 3. No penalty for guessing incorrectly, as always. In some games there is no favorite, so each team will be worth 1. (Don't worry about listing the point value when posting your picks, the team name is plenty.)

    Happy ThanksPicking everybody!


    Week 12: Thurs, Nov. 26th (Thanksgiving) - Mon, Nov. 30th:

    Mandalorians (3) @ Troopers (3) - Game of the Week!
    Mandalorians 45, Troopers 26

    In another showdown in the southern sector, the mighty Mandalorians (7-3) have vanquished the sith and now attempt to eradicate their army, the Troopers (7-3), whose aim at galactic rule is improving each and every week.

    B-1s (2) @ Twi'leks (1)

    Monday Night:
    Seattle-Wattos.png Philadelphia-Yodas.png
    Wattos (1) @ Yodas (3)
    Wattos 23, Yodas 17
    Its easier being neon-green this time around as the Wattos (7-3) take the fight to their little green foe, the fledgling Yodas (3-6-1) whose leader seems far-removed from being a contender for Most Valuable Jedi.

    Thanksgiving Night:
    Tuesday Night:

    Baltimore-Siths.png Pittsburgh-Droidekas.png
    Sith (3) @ Droidekas (1)
    Sith 14, Droidekas 19

    FYI, tomorrow night's Thanksgiving game of Sith @ Droidekas is moving to Sunday.

    This doesn't affect our Pick Em but I just wanted to let you all know of the schedule change.

    So, heads up guys. The star player of the Ravens (Sith) just tested positive for coronavirus.



    They are also still getting positive tests and all signs point that the outbreak cannot be contained.

    What happened was that one of their fitness coaches lied about having symptoms because apparently he was embarrassed he had the virus. Fitness coaches work closely with all the players on the roster and it's unknown how long he was interacting with them *while* he was infected. It's assumed that the incubation period for the first wave ended on Monday and it's very likely there will be another wave once this one ends. Complete freaking shitshow. Not sure what this means for the Sunday game yet but they are barely gonna be able to field a squad.

    We may be witnessing the end of their season in all but name because some idiot was too proud to follow quarantine.

    The Sith @ Droidekas game got moved from Sunday to Tuesday.
    His Twitter sadly reveals that he's a bit of an anti-masker.
    The problem was that he hid his symptoms and refused to use the device the league issued to contain the virus within the facilities. You keep it under your shirt and it doesn't really stick out, so people for the most part relied that everyone worked in good faith. I would strip the Ravens from a fifth round pick, same as they did the Raiders, and ban the coach from the league.
