@lmur,
Thanks Imur. I don't bet much anymore. I prefer now to aggravate people enough so that they watch the game with an intensity in direct proportion to their desire to see my pick lose. To almost transform them into a fan of my pick's opponents. Make the game more enjoyable for them like when Tico slams the fridge door or Mac lurches forward in the chair in an attempted tackle on my pick's wide receiver as he surges along the out of bounds and dances into the end-zone before diving into the crowd where the fanatics gather.

Diving into the crowd here is punished with a yellow card. It has reduced such incidents but not stopped them.

Was it JPB who posted "groan"? That's enjoyable. Being cool and blase--allahkeefik the Arabs say--is no good. You need to be yelling at the screen.

And now for a Domino Pizza.

22) Wandeljw (157-89 .613) ends down one from 21st.
22) JPB - fellow Chicagoan - does the same thing.



Ahhhhhhhh... How sweet is that?!?!?!


Congrats to Spendi -- it was fun watching you get interested in the game as the season progressed.

Great job on keeping things straight, fun and interesting, rjb.

Ya done good!


I was happy to see us tied, JPB. I didn't say anything because everyone was making a fuss about spendius! Smile

@spendius,
About what?

Congrats on winning. I have always sucked at this game. I'm relegated to being pleased to have finished above the George Line (and Wandeljw).

Thank you realjohnboy for all your work. You even managed to make the ranks below the: "george line" entertaining.

We...are...off and running - or perhaps passing. No one changed picks.
I failed to note that Lmur (in 27th) and Alex (4 games ahead in 26th) differ on 10 games.

@alex240101,
Agreed RJB. Ive been peeking in from time to time and found that this thread has been able to draw folks of disparate interests and beliefs together. Very kewl , and I see that about everyone involved has appreciated it. I think you should be conferred a special hamsterian office status, I do.

So you are the one responsible for driving up the number of views!
You got any opinions on the Wild Card games this weekend?

@spendius,
Sounds like a challenge, Spendi.
I thought of you today while reading and hearing about the horrible weather in the U.K. You doing okay? I don't think I know where abouts you are. Probably some place like Cheese in the River. Yall have funny place names there.

@realjohnboy,
Im only going to watch the Philly/Dallas game. The line is still 9 points and I think that its worth a bet on Philly. I dont expect them to win but they will beat the spread this time.

WHO said that Tico's in the horspistol?

@ossobuco,
Yep ... I've moved on to a hospital bed watching the Suns play the Rockets. The hospital bed is much more comfy than the couch.
