Nailed It! Pantheon

The Nailed It! Pantheon . . . home to the gods of prognostication that gather around Water Cooler Sports as if it were Mount Olympus itself.

The Pantheon. Once it was an ancient edifice erected to honor the great gods of lore. Now it is home to gods among men. The names which adorn the walls of this great temple are often spoken only in whispers, as befits icons worthy of honor and respect.

Behold, these are the men and women of Water Cooler Sports who have proven their prognostication prowess. This collection of Pantheon Prognosticans has shown time and again how they are truly gods of the gridiron — at least in their own minds. These are the men and women who correctly Nailed It!

Fear not! For one day you too may join them! But until that day comes, doff your caps, bow your heads, and know that you are in the presence of greatness.
