Possibly ever. Checking records going back 37 years, there has never been a WPIAL season with 13 undefeated and untied teams (there used to no overtime in WPIAL football). It seems this perfection thing has become much...

The loyal reader’s taunting began shortly after Chick’s Picks was posted on Thursday, calling out the prognosticator for what was deemed a terrible prediction.  Chick’s Picks monitored the situation closely throughout the day, noticing that the same reader also called out other local...
