WELCOME EVERYONE!.....the MAGNIFICENT 7 OF SUMMER SPORTS it is. The scoring has a slight bias towards the big 3 events of the summer. Wimbledon, Tour de France and The Open as they are the main events, plus, they are also the hardest to predict so slightly more points could potentially be won. Jokester will again keep score, but I urge everyone to jot down their own as I don't want no comebacks on her at the end. It's not fair, as it is a very difficult job to keep on top of everything. Mistakes could be made. I will post the results after each event as before, so you know who has scored what. Again, I may tweak one or two things closer to the event. But I would like to think I have given those with less knowledge on some sports a chance to do well with some guessing games thrown in. Please no posting 5 event predictions at a time, just those coming up. All I need for now, is a simple I'm in or variant of, so Jokester has plenty of time to wield her magic upon her spreadsheets.
