Big Break NFL - Predictions
As I've mentioned in the past, the Big Break series on Golf Channel is one of my favorite programs on TV and this seasons NFL series is no exception. As always, the stakes are high as contestants are competing for amazing prizes and career changing opportunities; the difference this season... Contestants are paired up, one male, one female and one NFL legend.
Teams compete against each other in a series of challenges, the losing team gets a strike against them. Get two strikes and you're team is eliminated from the competition.
After 6 episodes, two teams have managed to avoid a strike, Team Rypien and Team Doleman. Here's a recap of the leaderboard so far:
Team Rypien - No Strikes
Team Doleman - No Strikes
Team Rice - 1 Strike
Team Brown - 1 Strike
Team Bulger - 1 Strike
Team Del Greco - ELIMINATED
Al Del Greco
Having watched the first 6 episodes, I think there are a couple teams that stand out from the rest. My two favorites:
1. Team Rypien
2. Team Rice
Both these teams are playing decent golf, but more importantly, they seem to have developed great team chemistry. Although this isn't typical in golf, in this team environment, I think that the good spirited camaraderie they demonstrate will go a long way in this competition. I'll be rooting for both these teams throughout the remaining episodes!
