Tonight marks the last game in the first half of 2011 season. So far, we have seen little change in the leaderboard.

Coming off of two consecutive one-loss weeks, Graham stands alone at the top with, like the Braves, a tenuous two-game lead.

David is in second with a chance to make up ground in the Towns County game. In other news, David brilliantly used the word "bugaboo" in an article this week.

Zac dropped a game on the lead last week. He says his concentration was off because his mother-in-law was in town. We really should give him a couple of games for that regardless.

In fourth place stands Brent, who is quickly gaining ground after a slow start. The defending champ says the second half will be different.

Bill, who stands in fifth place, has also used bugaboo in an article and was actually the first in The Times history to do so. He has been pretty confident this week though. "Well duh, I'm going to win," Bill said, "I'm more of a second half picker anyways." 

Play along and post your picks.

Halfway through the picking season we have our first change in the standings.

Brent has shot up the leaderboard into second place. The three-time champion sat at his desk calmly like he expected the change, "I told you so."

Zac, on the other hand, is ready to give up going with intuition and start crunching the numbers after his 9-3 night. "Regis always said go with your gut feeling," he said referring to the former host of Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

Graham again put up strong numbers and was tied for the night's best record at 10-1 with Brent. Graham's performance put another game between first and second.

Standings through Week 5:
1)Graham 57-7
2)David 53-10
3)Brent 53-10
4)Zac 52-12
5)Bill 47-17
