Dexter brought this subject up on Monday in the Shoutbox but I guess it slipped everyone's mind.

I just remembered today... so I made the league. The top scorers already have 8 Hat Tricks but it's really easy to catch up. I remember last year by the time I joined, I believe the top guy already had 15 Hat Tricks. Either way, by the time he had 35 I caught up with 30 or so.

In case you don't know what it is... it's just 3 questions per day. You have a 50/50 chance of getting it right. So just do it. You could win prizes (or so they say).

There's an app that will remind you to make your picks. I installed it, but it's running really slowly. Not sure if it's the app or my sad, tired little phone.

I'm in, but there's a good chance I'll end the season with zero points because I'll forget to play. There's also a good chance I end up with zero points even if I don't forget to play.

I'll get a reminder on my phone, then forget about it by the time I'm in front of a computer. If one can play on a phone, I won't be able to figure it out due to that old dog/new trick brain block disease. Maybe we'll all have a chance if this thread gets new posts and stays near the top. Otherwise, we'll have to find solace in the suckage of that Kevin Weekes guy.

But then I'll never form a habit of doing it, and forget about it all together.

Can we just sign up for a service to have Mel call us daily with a reminder and have him give us advice?

They do, but whoever is in charge of that is slow at times. Sometimes you'll see questions posted 3-4 days in advanced. Sometimes they don't until the day of. One thing people typically complain about is that for Saturday afternoon games, they don't post until Saturday morning. So that can screw you over.

Yep. 1 question. Make sure you check back tomorrow before the game to see if they update it. I think last month, there was one day where they had 2 questions up. Then at the last minute, they put up a 3rd question and 95% got it wrong because they well, never chose an answer for the 3rd question that popped up at the last minute.

Thanks! I still keep forgetting to do it sometimes. They really need to put more than 1-2 days up at a time. The days I usually forget are Saturday/Sunday when they have those super early morning games. By the time I check in the afternoon, I can't even answer 2 out of the 3 questions. :facepalm:

And of course, some of these questions are stupid luck. Like the other day, Who will win between the Maple Leafs or Red Wings? 89% picked the Red Wings and they lost. Then last night there was a question on whether or not Johnny Hockey will score a goal. I saw that they were playing the Blues so the first instinct would be to say No right? That's what I picked and when I saw the box score, I saw that the Flames scored 5 goals! Thankfully, that's where the stupid luck kind of comes into play. He didn't score a goal. Whew.
