The Bird is the Word

It's actually "Bird's Word". That's our new title to the same old high school football pick 'em contest.

Nick Birdsong (of the Tampa, Fla., Birdsongs) is running it now. Back by popular demand/request from you, the loyal reader, we've brought back the staff picks.

Teams from Woodland to Cedar Bluff longed for it. I think some just longed to laugh at Al Muskewitz's off-the-wall picks. While it never quite worked (with respect to wins and losses) there was a formula.

1. Pick the local team.
2. If it's two local teams, pick the home team.

Proving that even a leopard (or just a really old dog) can change his spots, Musky went against his old plan. He's got Oneonta over Alexandria, Sidney Lanier over Anniston, and Jacksonville Christian picking up a road win over ASD.

Pick up a copy of Thursday's Star and check out our staff's lineup of picks (found on 6C).
