Tribskin Pick’em, your picks and ours … A season of surprises and more to come

Aram and I will go head-to-head in Tribskin Pick’em throughout the season for our annual dinner bet.

Last Week: Robledo (11-8); Tolegian (13-6).
Season: Robledo (86-43); Tolegian (84-45).

Last Week:: Since taking a six-game lead a few weeks back, Aram has chipped away and cut my lead to two. We both missed by not taking Los Altos, Duarte, Diamond Bar, Temple City and Workman, but I also missed not taking Charter Oak, El Monte or Los Alamitos. Aram missed another by not taking Kaiser.

This week:: It has been extremely tough picking games this year and this week’s lineup is another example. There are maybe five or six I feel good about, the rest are up for grabs. Do you really know about Charter Oak-Chino HIlls? Damien-Ayala? La Puente-Sierra Vista? Glendora-Alta Loma? South El Monte-Rosemead? Gabrielino-Mountain View? Los Altos-Rowland? Diamond Bar-Diamond Ranch? The way upsets and surprises are happening each week, it’s an “Any Given Friday” type of season.

    Swastika painted on West Covina High’s bulldog mascot

    WEST COVINA – Police are investigating an incident in which a swastika was painted on the West Covina High School bulldog mascot during the weekend.

    A photo from Twitter shows the bulldog, which is normally maroon and gold, had been repainted green and white, and had been tagged with as swastika and the letters `SH.’ Authorities could not confirm whether SH stood for South Hills High School, West Covina High’s crosstown rival. Green and white are South Hills’ school colors.

    West Covina Unified Superintendent Debbie Kaplan said the vandalism was reported to the West Covina High’s principal Sunday morning. She said a work crew repainted the bulldog Monday morning before students arrived.

    Kaplan said the investigation is in its “very initial” stages, but she said authorities plan to review security footage from several cameras at the school.

    Police said no one has been arrested in connection with the vandalism. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call West Covina police at 626-939-8557. Anonymous tips can be left by calling 626-939-8688.

    And yet you wonder why no one takes you serious…lol

    But I’ll play along:

    Monrovia 17
    Blair 14
    Monrovia wins when Blair fumbles at the goal line with one minute left.
    It’s like Deja-vu all over again.

    Ayala or Damien..?

    @Duroc K
    Let’s have some respect bro no banging on a blog lets leave that to the streets this is football good compliment but no “dirt rock”…
    Duroc and Gladstone should be a game though but I still think Duroc come up with the W… my opinion!

  • mean green pastures

    What do you mean no one takes me seriously lol…I think Aram mention greenie…anyway who says I am playing? I don’t see any domination here. BP is hungry for a win, and I think a rebuilding Covina might give it to them. They did this against Covina’s most talent team in years. Don’t make me go to the game…I’ll meet you by the buses lol.

    last year 26-18 covina
    The year before that 17-9 Covina

    “Don’t make me go to the game…I’ll meet you by the buses lol.”
    Sorry, I’m straight. You need to go to WeHo for that.

    Everything you need to know about Covina VS Baldwin Park

    In the last 11 years our record against BP is 8-3.

    We scored 321 points and them 136.
    Their biggest win over us was by 21
    Our biggest win over them was by 41
    Our smallest win over them was by 8
    Their smallest win over us was by 1
    We have shut them out twice by a combined score of 65-0
    They have shut us out NEVER.

    BUT….their stadium blows our dilapidated CDF out of the water!

    Covina vs Baldwin Park is always a good game and I’m looking forward to it.

  • I am a Bp fan and I know it’s been another bad year , another group of bad coaches but I will always be a brave for life.Now don’t think bp is going to throw in the towel it should be a good game like each yr , but Covina still has more play makers .. So I hope we can steal one as long as bp plays with heart they will be fine .. I hope Covina plays scared like they did the past couple of times cause from what I heard was Covina can’t stand playing bp cause they hit and are scrappy , well see good luck braves ,, by the way I was reading about schools with all these transfers and some bloggers making it a big deal that’s been going on for yrs and is never going to change bp don’t make a big deal ex.. Just in recent yrs .. Santiago from c.o a bp boy dad lives in bp mom does not .. Bj lee .. Castro .. Gus vechees.. Marky frijo .. Basically two quarters of westco team .. Amat took Moore from this back yard .. Couple kids from south hills I mean there is about 3 kids from Covina team this year that should be at bp and starters but I understand why they went to other high schools I talk to their dad and they feel it was best for there kids cause bp don’t have coaches even when James was here He brought out of character coaches here the kids hated Wardell until bp gets a coach that understand what bp football was and could be its going to be tough , but all we can do is be fans and root for that magical season

    If we have people on here saying that the only league game that Gladstone will lose is to Duarte, than I am aghast. To me this just says that the Montview League is terrible. If Duarte is the best team in that league then wow. Didn’t they get smacked by a 6th or 7th place finisher from the Mt. Baldy league? Didn’t that same team lose a game to a team that had won like 2 games in their last 31.
