Week 12 Results

CRAZY STRIKES NFL’S THANKSGIVING

CALENDAR, BUT OHIO CONTESTANT

SAILS PLACIDLY THROUGH TO VICTORY

IN POWER POINTS FOOTBALL CONTEST

Is it over yet?

At last glance, the NFL’s Thanksgiving weekend football extravaganza was passing the 110-hour point. What began on Thanksgiving morning with the Detroit-Houston game had stretched to the thrice-postponed Pittsburgh-Baltimore game on Wednesday evening.

Along the way, we encountered bizarro events that fit the Halloween motif more than Thanksgiving — including the Denver Broncos having to play New Orleans on Sunday with no quarterbacks on the roster because of Covid-19. (Denver fans will take a long time getting over the idea that the Broncos were forced into action with no bullets in their pistols while Baltimore and Pittsburgh got to postpone their game all the way until Wednesday. Welcome to 2020.)

While all this was roiling around him, one Ohio contestant in Week 12 of the POWER POINTS Football Contest stuck to his knitting, kept his head down and persevered to carry home Grand Prize honors. Dwight Wold, of Beavercreek tallied 127 of the possible 136 points to claim that honor. He entered the contest through the Daily Gazette newspaper in Xenia.
