Mr. Dennis Stagliano
c/o Gridiron Gold Sports Service
Dear Dennis,
This time last year we were congratulating you for a third place finish in our EXPERTS BOWL handicapping contest, and you responded by telling us that next year you would win it.
Well, that turned out to be the first of many, many correct predictions, as your final 34-18 record earned you the championship of the 1984 College EXPERTS BOWL.
Your final winning percentage of 65% actually represents a drop from the 67% mark you maintained in week 10 of the last 13 week contest, which just shows that you were consistent all season. How consistent? So consistent that for the first time in three years a sports service went the entire season without a single losing week!
Your record is remarkable enough, but it must also be noted that you accomplished this while making selections early in the week, and you defeated some of the finest college football handicappers in the business.
Here is the complete order of finish:
GRIDIRON GOLD SERVICE (Dennis Stagliano) 34-18 FIRST & LAST SPORTS SEERVICE (Dave Cokin) 34-18 SPORTS NEWSLETTER (Bob Livingston) 33-18-1 JOURNAL & COURIER (Media Champion) 33-18-1 MVP SPORTS SERVICE (Steve Richards) 29-23 KOLLEGIAN KINGPIN (Jim Rotunda) 28-23-1 SPORTS REPORTER (Richard Bomze) 24-28              
Naturally, we are hopeful that you will return to defend your championship. You will have your trophy shortly--would love to see a picture of you and Sandy standing next to it.

Ron Sataloff
