Beat the Streak Report: Tuesday, June 1
I don’t know what’s better news: The fact that the top six player selections each laced hits to extend the streaks of about 35 percent of Streakland combined, or that I keep thinking it’s Monday only to repeatedly hover my mouse over the clock thing on the bottom right corner of my monitor and it reads “Tuesday, June 1, 2010.”
That clock is so wise and just the bearer of the bestest news.
And what better way to celebrate a great start to a shortened Beat the Streak workweek then to reach out to the BTS world for a little Q&A?
That’s right, I’m asking all of you fantasy game multi-million-dollar entrepreneurs out there to send in any questions, comments, qualms or just incredible ideas that have anything to do with Beat the Streak to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Think the Beat the Streak Report needs a little face lift? Some lipo? One of those sounds-amazingly-painful gastric band surgeries?
Let me know and drop me a line at email@example.com.
I will post them in tomorrow’s Beat the Streak Report and we can all get wiser together.
Just like the clock thing.
Time for Monday’s picks
Wait a second …
Time for Tuesday’s picks

“kneetgm”, our leader entering the weekend, saw his/her streak bite the dust at 27 games to become the fifth BTSer who was KO’d at the 27-game mark.
Anybody else find this a smidgen interesting? Just me? Alright, just checking …
Anyway, let’s see if our new leader, “agentstjohn” can buck the trend and eclipse the 27-game mark tonight.
