Look, I'm not saying it's going to go out before they close entries on April 5th, but if it did, wouldn't you want to have your winning picks in before?? And maybe they'll need to shut down early just in case and you'll miss that opportunity to win entirely! I think I'll do mine today or tomorrow. The ice actually thickened up, which it tends to do every year. Do your research, then guess like I do! I did miss it by 2 minutes one year. Lots of places to buy them-look for the sexy red cans. And the photo I attached was from my yard bbq-ing this weekend. Looked over at the sun and I was happy. Nothing to do with the Classic, but I thought it was pretty. Good Luck!
