    Maybe it's a slightly more realistic claim.
    Last week it was an '80% guaranteed accuracy' with an 8-6 result.

    See, that's Wendy's genius at work. Look at the title closely... it's not "guaranteed", it's "guranteed".

    So he isn't actually promising anything, since "Guranteed" isn't a word you can find in the dictionary. From the context, though, it apparently means "of dubious value" or "with fingers crossed".

    Genius!

    We need to find a way to have a chimp make the 50-50 picks each week and see if the chimp can beat Wendy.

    Wendel is like Sex Panther by Odeon. 60% of the time, he is right all the time.

    I figured an Anchorman reference would be apropos this week.

    First Wendy is confused about what 'guarantee' actually means (see last week's 80% guarantee), then this week the word LOCK seems problematical. Even a Chimp gets a LOCK right at least.

    This Forum hasn't seen such rampant football incompetence since AQUA4EVER last posted here.
    Please, Please keep posting this weekly hilarity!

    So far Wendy's at 42%, not the 70% 'gurantee'

    Guessing right on the next 2 games is 50% correct AT BEST
    This is DOWN from last week's 57% and equal to pure chance.

    Final Total for Wendy 43% correct.

    Now we know what 'gurantee' means, it means around half of what was boastfully claimed.

    I think we've seen the last of these self-punking hilarious threads.

    Nah, I predict the following threads in weeks to come:

    Wendel's Week 7 NFL Picks (Guranteed 60% Accuracy)
    Wendel's Week 8 NFL Picks (Guranteed 50% Accuracy)
    Wendel's Week 9 NFL Picks (Guranteed 40% Accuracy)
    Wendel's Week 10 NFL Picks (Guranteed 30% Accuracy)
    Wendel's Week 11 NFL Picks (Guranteed 20% Accuracy)
    etc.

    The final week his actual success rate will be -6% (all predictions wrong, plus picking a winner among the teams on bye).

    #3 Jersey

    That'd be especially impressive since, thank God, there are no more Week 17 byes. :)
