Congratulations to Big Al McMordie, whose 5-2 effort in the finals beat Brent Carter to capture the 11th annual Stardust Invitational football handicapping tourney.
David Stratton, of GT fame, won the title last year and will be part of the 2005 list. In each of the last two years, the elite group of Las Vegas handicappers had nearly a 59 percent success rate. Kudos to Bob Scucci, the race and sports director at Stardust for a stellar job in upgrading the talent list to produce the very best results. Now, get me in for the $10Gs. — Mark Mayer
