I am playing Chief_aka_James and Jess.  I'm beating James and losing to Jess, but I have players on both teams who are playing in Denver, so I still have a chance to make a comeback against Jess!

I bet i have fewer clues than you and if i win (highly unlikely) i'll send you a gift worth half the winnings.

Ok, then it was one of three reasons why the game didn't go through.

That'll happen sometimes. Not everyone likes getting their butt kicked by you, huskerfan

You don't have to go to Facebook. Just click on Quick Fantasy. Then Start a Challenge. Then on the left hand side you'll see current challenges. Click that. No Facebook is necessary at all.
