@realjohnboy,
I failed to pick the Giants.
The song Beth posted was "Fee Fi Fo Fum".

Too subtle for me. Redneck humor tends to revolve around sex and bodily functions.

You're not the first person to note how cute and subtle I am Mr. Green

I just re-read my picks.
Except for my Giants pick, totally boring. Ho-hum.
It's time for The Amazing Giorgio!

@realjohnboy,
Less then 24 hours to go before Sunday's 1st game. We are up to 19 players but can certainly handle more. Please consider joining us!

YES! We are back for our Vth season of this game, run here by idiots for the entertainment of folks who don't know one end of a football from the other. The 1st year we had 6 players and then 12 in the 2nd and it has grown and grown.
The idea is that when the folks around the water cooler talk about the games on Sunday, you -yes, you- can say something like "How about them Bears?'

Here is how it works. Each week a schedule will be posted of the games. It will look like this:
Washington Redskins @ NY Giants
Detroit @ Atlanta
and on for as many as 16 games.
All you have to do is pick the winning team in each game by posting here.

You might say Washington, Atlanta, etc. down through the list. If you know the NFL, that is fine, but there are some folks here who in the past have made choices based on some rather bizarre criteria. They have done quite well based on the cutest cheerleaders or the cuter quarterback. Or numerology, whatever that is.
There are some rules, but we tend to make them up as we go along. I will explain some of them later.
WATCH THIS SPACE FOR WEEK #1.

Here is the schedule for week #1
Thursday:
Washington Redskins @ NY Giants - Too late for this one, but pick the rest.
Sunday:
Detroit Lions @ Atlanta Falcons
Seattle Seahawks @ Buffalo Bills
Jacksonville @ Tennessee (I can't remember their nicknames)
NY Jets @ Miami Dolphins
Kansas City Chiefs @ New England Patriots
Tampa Bay Bucaneers @ New Orleans Saints
St Louis Ravens (or something) @ Philadelphia Eagles
Houston Oilers @ PITTSBURGH STEELERS
Cincinnati (whatevers) @ Baltimore (are they the Ravens)
Carolina Panthers @ San Diego Chargers
Arizona Razorbacks @ San Francisco (whatevers)
Dallas Cowboys @ Cleveland Browns
Chicago Bears @ Indianapolis Colts
Monday:
Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders

All you need to do, which will take all of V minutes, is to list the teams you think will win.
But, as a needed tie-breaker, you need to suggest a score for the last game.
So, you might say, Washington, Atlanta...ending with Denver (14-13).
Pretty simple, huh?
Some pretty amusing writing goes on in the interim betwixt folks here on A2K you may not typically interact with. That's the idea. Welcome.

Goes back to the Giants winning and the "Fee fi fo fum" song somebody (ehBeth?) was singing earlier? Jack the giant killer? He planted the beans that grew the great bean stalk to get him to the Giant's castle in the sky where he slew the Giant?

(Yeah, it was pretty subtle. And you pretty well have to grow up with Grimm's Fairy Tales and like literature. Smile)

I really thought I had reeled in a couple of new players. But they both ended up declining. Sigh. Ms Cowdoc? Where are you?
"Obtuse?" I rarely get to use that word, and I make up the rules here. So there.

You need to hang out on the political threads more.

@Foxfyre,
The inabilty to pm folks really crimps my style, Fox. 19 players is fine, but for me, growing the game has been part of my mission from when this stupid game started 5 years ago. That makes no sense, does it? Kind of obtuse.
