Aram and I will go head-to-head in Tribskin Pick’em throughout the season with the loser buying lunch in December.
Last week: Robledo (15-3); Tolegian (15-3)
Season standings: Robledo (129-40); Tolegian (127-42)
Last week: Aram and I both went 15-3, but we took different roads there. We both missed taking Los Altos over Bonita, but I also missed taking South Hills over Damien, and Walnut over Diamond Bar. Aram lost taking Crespi over Bishop Amat and for whatever reason, Wilson over Northview. Our race is shaping up, with three weeks left and playoffs, I’m up by two.
This week: After calling Amat on the road at Crespi, I’m calling them at home on Friday too. They’ve already lost one Serra home game, you think they’re going to lose two? On homecoming? In another must-win? I don’t think so, but Aram does. I don’t think Tolegian will pick Amat to win any Serra games. As great as Damien has been in recent weeks, I think they lose the next two weeks and wind up finishing third in the Sierra. Chino Hills and Charter Oak will play for the league title at the end, and Chino Hills will show why by doing its part. Of course, Tolegian disagrees again. The other game Tolegian and I disagree on is Northview-Nogales, I like the Vikes, he likes the Nobles. Rosemead could screw up the Mid-Valley with a win over Arroyo, but don’t count on it. West Covina has another test at Los Altos, but the Bulldogs are passing all tests these days.
