Preseaon has begun (think Orbcomm-2 for SpaceX), and the regular season is just a couple weeks away.

SpaceX nails another landing after JCSAT-16 delivery to reach 5-3. Next SpaceX launch could be on opening weekend!

This is the most bizarre poll ever held here, I'm pretty sure. Currently one of my picks (Skins, Bears, Lions) is the winningest team that SpaceX is still beating.

("Whoever picks the team with the highest win percentage LOWER than the SpaceX first stage landing percentage from Jan 1, 2016 through Jan 3, 2017 wins!")

If the season was over now I (along with three other folks) would have this one in the bag.

I'd be curious to know how SpaceX compares with NFL teams in terms of the fraction of its business that is accounted for by public subsidies.  NFL teams get some sweet deals on stadiums ("... or else were gonna leave town!"), while SpaceX (and its competitors) get public money for developing vehicles.
