Nothing fishy about Fever winnerAsk Reno Ramiro to pick out a prime cut of fish for you and he'll do it without a problem, but by his own admission, picking out winners in football games has never been his forte.
That changed last week for the professional fish cutter for Nobu of Hawaii, when he picked nine out of 10 correctly on his Football Fever ballot.
His 9-1 record vaulted him into contention and his ballot was selected in the weekly drawing as this week's Football Fever winner, taking the $500 prize and two Hula Bowl tickets .
"I never follow the games closely so I don't know how I do each week," he said. "I just pick what I think and put in my paper each week. This is a total surprise for me."
Ramiro, who's luck has been riding high recently, just had his wedding reception last week so he plans to use his winnings to pay a few bills and to buy something nice for his new family.
