I got it at the architecture store (I think). Either that or Walgreen's on Michigan. Dusts it off...
(actually I've worn it a couple of times, ain't all that dusty).

ESPN's game cast got stuck again at some fourth down for something like fifteen minutes, with the score at 29 to whatever, obviously wrong. That's not the first time that's happened for me trying to follow the game with it.

I went over to Yahoo, who hardly seemed to be home on the sports nfl thing.

Checked google news and cnn, also not home.

Checked SI-yahoo, nah.

Checked SI again sometime later, and saw 17-23, which I somewhat believed.

ESPN's scoreboard had what looked like a good way to follow, last week, but then all those little game graphics failed for something like 2/3 of the game(s).

What, these are major networks. They seem to need skilled web folks.

EPSNSI is calling it "one of the biggest choke jobs in sports history". I wish I'd stayed up to watch!

I don't watch football but I gather from the little blurb on my start page that AZ did an excellent job of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

As long as you are watching this thread, cjhsa, you are welcome to play each week.

Thanks, Jespah, but the first time I checked that, back when ESPN gamecast was stuck, it seemed even more untimely than ESPN. Next time I tried it, it was ok.

So a lot of us are woebegone this week in A2K NFL land. A bad week #6 for many of us.

But not so for Chiso, who finished at 11-2 and for Child of the Light who came in at 9-4. Chiso becomes our 6th different weekly winner. Well done, Chiso.
Who's turn is it in week #7?
Finishing at 8-5 were Liontamerx, Cowdoc, Pantalones and Sublime. (Kicky would also have been at 8-5 had he gotten his picks in on time, but he didn't. I hope we learned a little lesson from this, Kicky, on the price one pays for procrastination.)
JPinMilw and JPB ended up at 7-6, followed at 6-7 by Osso, Region and George at 6-7. It was an unchacteristically bad week for Region.
Tico and Johnboy stumbled in at 5-8 followed by Fbaezer at 4-9.
And then there was Jespah, who evidentally made her picks on the basis of the length of the teams' names. She finished at 2-9. (I hope we learned a little lesson from this, Jespah. "Length" doesn't equate with "better.")

The best ESPN guy wound up going 9-4; the worst 6-7.

Green Bay (1-4) @ Miami (1-5)
Philadelphia (4-2) @ Tampa Bay (1-4)

Carolina (4-2) @ Cincy (3-2)
New England (4-1) @ Buffalo (2-4)
Pittsburgh (2-3) @ Atlanta (3-2)
Jacksonville (3-2) @ Houston (1-4)
Sunday 10/22 Late Games:
Denver (4-1) @ Cleveland (1-4)

Minnesota (3-2) @ Seattle (4-1)

Total Points in the last game.

I'm still too irritated. (But at whom? Myself, for some mind changing and not following some hunches, while proud, proud indeed that I got a few right). I'm waiting a day to think about these next ones..

sublime must be dancing in the streets over that Bears' victory last night.

Dennis Green once again proves himself to be unqualified to be a head coach in the NFL.

Oh. I thought you were talking about head coaches. Leave it to Denny Green to fire his offensive coordinator in an attempt to deflect the blame from himself.

What a punk.
