@edgarblythe,
I just heard on the news that once again the Balt Ravens-Texans game has been rescheduled due to storm damage. This time it'll be moved ahead to their (former) bye week which will be on Nov 9th . So one game will be removed from the matches tomorow.

Good move by the NFL. Wrong time, wrong place for a game.

@CowDoc,
Thanks, Cowdoc. But ain't the Ms Cowdoc peering over your shoulder, muttering about some of your choices? I am, of course, not being pushy but we would welcome her wisdom here.

@Foxfyre,
Ms Cowdoc played in years past. Let's see: I caught up with LionTamer and Rochead on other threads and dropped in a reminder. I happened to have Alex's email address. Can't locate Maporsche anywhere on my end of the political sphere. Perhaps one of yall can find him.

Bear down, Chicago Bears, make every play clear the way to victory;

We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation with your T-formation.
Bear down, Chicago Bears, and let them know why you're wearing the crown.
You're the pride and joy of Illinois, Chicago Bears, bear down.

Happy High Noon (EDT) to yall. I have settled into the anchor desk here in the A2K Sports studio. I have the staples needed: Pabst Blue Ribbon, Ritz crackers and a fresh can of Cheez-Whiz. What could be better?
One thing that could be better would be to get the picks from LiontamerX and Ma porsche. And Alex needs to make a couple of corrections.
I managed, with some shameless pandering, to get Ms Cowdoc to play and also Sublime from Chicago. He played in several of the early years but then kind of drifted away from A2K for a spell. Happy to have him back.

I am looking at our picks this week. All 20 of us picking so far have the Steelers, 18 of us have the Saints and the NY Giants and 17 brethern have the Packers. After that, games are pretty evenly divided, with the Bears-Panthers game being a toss-up.

Ms Cowdoc and Jespah disagree with the majority of us on 6 games. That is no big deal as there are a bunch of folks at 5 and 4. Our friend Edgar agreed with the majority of players in every game.
Edgar, as you probably know, is in Houston. He called Rockhead early this morning to report that he, Ms Edgar and the dog are okay.
The Baltimore @ Houston game scheduled for late afternoon has been moved to early November.

@realjohnboy,
I think Mrs. Cowdoc only had fifteen teams if I'm counting right.

Welcome Sublime & Miz Cowdoc. I checked on Maporsche and he hasn't posted since early Friday--must be away for the weekend.

Buffalo* @ Jacksonville
Oakland @ Kansas City
Indianapolis @ Minnesota
Chicago* @ Carolina*
Green Bay* @ Detroit
NY Giants* @ St Louis
New Orleans* @ Washington

Monday Night Game, 9/15:
Philadelphia* @ Dallas*
(And please don't forget to pick the final score in that last game).

If anyone who did not play last week would like to join, we would welcome you. The scoring has been set up such that folks who don't get to pick in every game don't get penalized. We would love to have new players.

@wandeljw,
I have missed Notre Dame football for many years because I work Sat. This season they show a replay in HD Sundays at 8am so all I have to do is avoid the score and wake up early to once again revel in Irish football.

The bad part is that I feel like I should have a beer while watching then realize that its 8:30 in the morning.
