As soon as the NFL lockout ended, I started (impatiently) waiting for my football pool notification to come.
I've been part of the same football pool since 1995, when I spent a month in Milwaukee doing research at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Back then it was sent as an e-mail with a lame attempt at an Excel spreadsheet, and the pool owner would hand-calculate the winner each week. My, how times have changed. Now it's on a hosted website with all kinds of bells and whistles.
I just got my activation e-mail today. I can't wait for the season to start.
