I sent emails this morning to the players in our A2K Fantasy football league. I heard back from Soup Kitchen. He is not on A2K but is a friend of someone who is (which is fine with me). At 7:30 this morning west coast time (I didn't know they got up that early there) he picked:
Bengals (24-17)
Lions (42-41)
Giants (27-24)
Steelers (39-3)

@realjohnboy,
Water Cooler Talk For Tuesday, Jan 3rd:
1) Adopt a bit of a sneering attitude.
2) "Denver? They finished first in their dreadful conference. At 8-8!"
3) "Did you know that they were outscored by their opponents 309-390?"
4) "Pittsburgh outscored their opponents 325-227. Great defense."
5) "Tebow doesn't have a prayer of winning, about the same as (fill in name) has in Iowa." Two quips in one line.
6) If challenged re the Steeler's injuries, say "When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Big Ben is the man."

I think I may have help for CoinToss this week. The secret code is CHDNANPD/HT. We will see if my quest, with the help of another A2Ker, works out.

I am pleased today to welcome a very special guest flipper to help me select the winning teams in this week's wild card games.
Lady Diane and Dys were a couple of very early joiners to A2K. Johnboy was about #200 back in late 2002 and Dys came on days later.
Johnboy joined them in Albuquerque for a gathering a few years ago. A lot of us got to meet them.
Lady Diane flips the coin four times and the NFL winners will be-
Cincinnati Bengals
New Orleans Saints
New York Giants
Pittsburgh Steelers

(Thanks to Osso for doing the effort to collect the picks and get Diane's permission to use her name.)

@Ragman,
I have the same picks, so I laughed when coin-toss got the same - haven't decided the scores yet.

Packers.

That is all.

(Yes I know they have a first-round bye, this is my way of both bookmarking and saying I will be only minimally participating, as in my vote is Packers ftw and won't really be doing anything else.)

@sozobe,
Putting Soz's post in context. She is not dissing the concept of this thread but rather a response to an invite to her from me to play. No problem.

@realjohnboy,
That wasn't dissing, no, but it's not related to an invite either. (I was invited to the Pickum game, not this one, when I was especially busy -- still busy now but a notch down from insanely busy, whew.)

Watercooler trash talk for Wednesday. January 4th:
"Ndamukong Suh plays with passion but very little class."
He plays defense for the Detroit Lions. He strutted around Sunday after sacking the 2nd string Green Bay QB as if it was the greatest play ever.
A few weeks ago, after he tackled the ball carrier, he stomped on the guy's arm.
The Lions face the New Orleans Saints this weekend. If they win, they will again face the Packers in Green Bay.

Hi all, it is an honor to be one of the coin tossers, although I have no idea on which team is the best bet.

Hi Ragman.
