Moore's excellent choices
do not extend to
Pellegrino's less-than-staggering 123 points are still good enough for sole possession of first place, while Mike Moore (120 points) saw his choice of Sparta over Rapids lock up the silver medal for another round.
Luke Rudy takes the WHSHP
very, very seriously.
Entrepreneurial spirit Jaime Moe is right behind the Daring Duo in fourth (117), just one point ahead of his older brother Erik and the still unidentified Donkey.
If that familial rivalry is not uncomfortable enough for you, take a look at the 6th slot, where Peter Rudy and his wife Shauna share an awkward matrimonial bed with former champion Mark Jobson. (Spoiler alert: Jobson has Restless Leg Syndrome.) Still, Shauna deserves her kudos as she too breathes the rarefied air of the those who chose both Chippewa Falls and Sparta to advance.
Rounding out the Top 10:
Leading the number 7 slot is Erik Smolin, our first contender for Rookie of the Year. He might not have that title looked up yet, but I've already engraved his name into this year's Most Likely to Be Mistaken for a Member of the Cure trophy. He shares that slot with Dan Caplan and defending champ Brian Kobylinski who, once again, is sneaking his way up the charts.
Gloves Off Middendorf (shown here with unidentified woman) gives us
a rare glimpse of his more sensitive side.
