He picked the winner in threeof six games, but two didn't cover his exclusive point spread, so I believe that comes out to a crummy 1-5.Can you believe that?The rage of a sage had been on a roll and was closing in on that coveted 70 percent accuracy rating at .691 until this 1-5 disaster that leaves the Prophet at .676 (144-69).Chesapeake's girls lacrosse team, a club that has become a Prophet favorite, was the only one to come through.
