are those beef jerky goalposts?
i like to think they are...

and a twinkie faceade -- smart idea, due to their incredibly long shelf life...


yes and yes

(I posted the link at FB in case you need one for later - build it now - it'll still be fine for the SB)

The NFL season begins in just a month (Thursday, September 8th). All the animosity between owners, players and fans seems to be behind us.
So to review the game here on A2K. Each week we post the games that often start on a Thursday and end on the following Monday. I used to do that on Tuesday, but in recent years I do it on Sundays for the benefit of folks who actually work and often travel between Tuesday and Thursday - as opposed to those of us who lull about building mock stadiums out of twinkies and beef jerky.
All you have to do is pick the winner in the games posted. You can change your picks in any game up until the start of the 1st game of each week. You also have to predict the final score in the last game of the week. I use that as the tiebreaker in determining the winner for the week.
We keep track of folks' cumulative scores for the season and eventually get to a winner for the season.

@realjohnboy,
Here is the schedule for Week #1 to show you the format:
Thursday, September 8th:
New Orleans @ Green Bay
Sunday, September 11th:
Atlanta @ Chicago
Philadelphia @ St Louis
Detroit @ Tampa Bay
Tennessee @ Jacksonville
Indianapolis @ Houston
Cincinnati @ Cleveland
Buffalo @ Kansas City
Pittsburgh @ Baltimore
NY Giants @ Washington
Minnesota @ San Diego
Carolina @ Arizona
Seattle @ San Francisco
Dallas @ NY Jets
Monday, September 12th:
New England @ Miami
Oakland @ Denver (+ final score)

You can post your picks in any format, such as NO, Atl, Phil...or you can take the time to explain your choices. Or trash talk.
Remember that you can change your picks, so there is no penalty for picking early.
There are some other rules, but I will get into them once I remember what they are.

@George,
I'm not paying attention yet, sucked as I am into a golf vortex, which I admit is a funny idea.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis ... followed by Gostkowski and then Gronkowski.


Or maybe you reverse the order of picks #2 and #3.

@Ticomaya,
Good guess, but wrong thread.
This is for picking the games.
