Wellington's Boot

Post by Radley Rambler » Wed Oct 04, 2017 11:27 pm

Simple one this week:

Total up the number of minutes that goals are scored in. E.g. a 1-1 draw with goals scored in 34 and 67 minutes = 101.

Nearest to the actual total wins.

TB1: Total number of goals scored in L1 this Saturday.
TB2: The bonus ball on Saturday's Lotto draw.

In the unlikely event there is a tie in the main question - then the person who is nearest in TB1 wins. If there is a tie there as well, then the person who is the nearest in TB2 wins. If we still have a tie, I'll eat the proverbial boot. ok?

So to get to the tie-breaker we need to have the same prediction or one that is an even number away from someone else's? For example:

128

Then, the correct tactics here to get the boot-eating video are to shadow that someone else's TBs or to be plus or minus two away? Right oh!

TB1 34
TB2 34

Yes indeed - although my odds are still very good!

Embarrassing but I won my own boot being 10 minutes out - 145 was the right answer.
