“The computer, an extension of the human intellect. The ENCOM511, centre of the most calculating intelligence on earth, programmed by Master Control to survive by all means. Soon, the ultimate tool will become the ultimate enemy.” I didn’t start my summary with a quote from the 1982 sci-fi blockbuster Tron as an analogy depicting me […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re back for the championship round of the Bet the Farm Playoff Challenge! Which is… what, exactly? The perfect chance for all you degenerates to get your fix without hurting your wallet! Here’s how the game is played: – Each week we’ll list the current point spread and total for each playoff game when this […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well here we are; week 17, the last coup de grace for a few of you, and for others, the Holy Grail of eternal survival and a suicide championship belt. For many of us (me included), the year ended early with a bucket full of shame. Again, how in the world has Arizona gone from […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
What do Kevin Kolb, Brandon Weeden, Charlie Batch, Nick Foles, and Ryan Lindley have in common? They are all signs that the apocalypse is coming. I kid, I kid. They have all sent me defeats in the 2012 NFL season. Just goes to show you that this game we call American Football is one wild […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
How in the world did Tampa Bay lose to Philadelphia? Really, How? Charlie Batch and Nick Foles have given me back-to-back losses. Throw in an improbably Arizona win in week two and my three losses have come from some dreadful quarterback play. I thought the quarterback position was supposed to be one of great importance, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Now that’s more like it. Even though I got burnt by Charlie Batch last week, it was nice to see some upsets peer through the scoreboard in week 13. I guess it wasn’t nice to see if you had selected San Francisco, Baltimore, Chicago or Carolina. In the first two of those games, the team […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
You know when you wake up in the morning, sleep walk to your washroom mirror in a fog, trying to brush your teeth and wash your face, when you suddenly realize ‘when did my hair get so long’? You try and think when your last visit to the salon was. A month ago? Six weeks? […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
If week 11 in the NFL had one name assigned to it, it would be Houdini. The smoke and mirrors used by Houston, Dallas, Tampa Bay, and Atlanta to magically pull victories out of strait jackets is nothing short of miraculous. The top suicide picks all managed to inch out wins in dramatically late fashion: […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
My experiment working from the road was a success. All three picks came to fruition and the potential upset pick ended up losing. Four for four from the road. As long as no physical activity is required, then road work feels just like home: food, shelter, booze water, and WiFi all available on the road […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We always say that travelling on the road is tough for sports teams: the travel part stinks; your routine is irregular; the hotel isn’t home; you are not used to the climate; the stadiums’ visiting locker room doesn’t have the amenities you are accustomed to; and you’re stuck in a van with three other guys […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
