Andy Anderson, of Viola, made grading the final week of the Ness Guess Football Contest an easy one.

Anderson, who joins the Ness Guess as a member of the Quad City Parrot Head Club, won the final $100 of the season by being the only entrant to post a 14-1 record.

In the final week of the Ness Guess Challenge with WQAD-TV sports director Matt Randazzo, Matt's wife, Jen, did something Matt couldn't do often in '12 -- win. In a battle of the wives in the final week, Jen went 10-5 and Kathleen Nesseler went 8-7 to make the final Ness Guess Challenge record 9-5-3 in favor of the Ness Guess. In typical parrot head fashion, Kathleen zeroed in on a loss by the Saints against the Panthers that kept her from finishing with a tie. Recognizing that Buffett is a big Saints fan, she merely said, "Blame it on Buffett," a song popularized by trop rocker Kelly McGuire.
