We've got fights from around the globe this week, from Cape Town to Derby to the Mandalay Bay (where the flying fishes play). Note that the Funeka fight cutoff is 9:30am on Friday, so get your picks in early.

We're getting down to it with just three weeks to go! Check last week's standings, including how many doubles and triples you have left, here.

Alrighty ... Let's get it get it get it!

For those that haven't played before, welcome to the best pick'em game going. Please join right in and start playing (just make sure to check out the rules - we promise they are very simple).
