Super Bowl Prop Bets

Super Bowl Prop Bets
Odds are you are going to a Super Bowl Party sometime this evening. And you’re going to want to make an impression. So you can slave over some homemade taco dip, but you don’t really know that much about bean blends. Or you can run the score squares, but you don’t want to spend your... Read more »

Super Bowl XLIX Preview

Super Bowl XLIX Preview
For a little while there, you may have thought this season was unceremoniously ending with talk about ball boy deflating scandals and physics professors discussing PSI. You knew the embarrassing media circus was coming once they added “gate” to the end of “Deflate-gate,” which they do to every stupid scandal as if “gate” is an... Read more »

Wow, when philosophers examine the delicate passing of time, I’m starting to wonder if they’d find the most extreme results in a study of an NFL Season. One moment, you’re finishing your fantasy football draft over Labor Day weekend just drunk enough to take a bold swing at Travis Kelce (and hit it out of... Read more »

NFL Playoffs Divisional Round Picks

NFL Playoffs Divisional Round Picks
Have you ever seen Silver Linings Playbook? Well, I watched it the day after New Years. In the movie, Robert Deniro, a big dreaming Philadelphia bookmaker, needs things a certain way to make sure the game goes his way. If the Eagles lost, it wasn’t because of the players; it was because people weren’t sitting in the... Read more »

NFL Wild Card Picks: Sunday

NFL Wild Card Picks: Sunday
Bengals at Colts – 12:00CT The Colts were this year’s team with a really good record that never made you very confident they were actually a good team. A third straight 11-5 season and second straight AFC South division title behind Andrew “the Giant” Luck should make the Colts one of the talked-about AFC Contenders.... Read more »

Cardinals at Panthers – 3:20CT Buckle up folks. Ryan Lindley versus the 7-8-1 NFC South (Somebody-Had-To-Win) Division. I can’t wait to tell my grandkids about this game. I really want the Cardinals to win this game. Larry Fitzgerald is my favorite receiver of all time. Phoenix Stadium would be a mad house hosting a Super... Read more »

NFL Picks: Week 17

NFL Picks: Week 17
So, let’s do a quick recap to decided if I knew what I was talking about this year. For the NFC, I picked preseason division champions of the Seahawks (nailed it), Falcons (stay tuned), Eagles (who knew Mark Sanchez would be prominently involved), and Bears (seriously, I hate you Bears). In the AFC, I picked... Read more »

NFL Hindsight Picks: Week 16
I’ve begun reading a Christmas present book called “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield. The concept challenges aspiring artists (or in this case, blogger) to pick out the factors that keep them from accomplishing their work, and labels this intangible entity “Resistance.” Well, I missed it Sunday and gave into the Resistance. I’ll take... Read more »

I’m having a tough time over here. See I just switched from Comcast, known mostly for being Nazi Germany’s favorite cable provider, to local legend, RCN. And while the switch has been great, Comcast, those greedy sunzab****es, took the NFL Redzone with them. I never thought I’d get sucked into the RedZone the way I... Read more »

NFL Hindsight Picks: Week 14
Hey now people, now most of this year, I’ve been very responsible. All you see is the final product, my Sunday weekly NFL Picks. You don’t see me making a pouty, poopy face as I set my alarm the night before. But every once in a while, this past Saturday night for example, I go... Read more »
