So the White Sox won. I want that feeling. I found this interesting though:
“The White Sox have also prospered from a run of good fortune that
borders on the ridiculous.” – The Sports Illustrated I got today
That’s the boldest statement yet made concerning the White Sox’s luck.
Interesting. But the fact is the White Sox were 11-1 in the playoffs
and probably would have won without that luck.
I have my schedule in the process of being made, having some problems
with Journ 102 but if all that works out then I will have no classes
that go past 3:15 and I will only have one 12-1250 class on Fridays,
while also not having any classes before 11 for the 2nd straight
CSL tonight…that’s always fun.
NFL Picks – Week 8
Last Week: 8-5-1 Season: 49-50-3
NY GIANTS (-2.5) over Washington
Some top MVP candidates this season: Carson Palmer, Cadillac Williams,
Steve Smith, Mark Brunell…and, yes, Eli Manning. Anyone who had those
five as being top-flight MVP candidates before this season, you can
cash in your lottery tickets….now.
CINCINNATI (-9) over Green Bay
Wow…I don’t see any team, even a Favre-led one, rebounding from that debilitating loss to the Vikings last week.
DALLAS (-9) over Arizona
I’m picking way too many favorites here. Julius Jones better come back
this week. Him, Joe Horn and Randy Moss have been raping my fantasy
teams for quite some time.
CAROLINA (-7.5) over Minnesota
Mark Schlereth is now on my hit list after believing that becase the
Vikes came back on a mediocre defense, that they can beat a hot
Carolina team that is coming off a bye week. They might want to hire
Kenoy Kennedy to make some more illegal hits on Jake Delhomme.
Cleveland (+2) over HOUSTON
Someone should look into this, but I bet the Texans are the first 0-6 team in NFL history to be favored.
Chicago (+3) over DETROIT
The Bears/Ravens game was like being gang-raped for three hours. Ok, it
wasn’t that bad. But shouldn’t there be a rule that Bears games come
with a warning…”you’re about to see the ugliest football ever
played”? It’s getting worse by the week.
Oakland (-1) over TENNESSEE
The Raiders are just too good to continue to languish in last place. At least put up a fight, guys!
Jacksonville (-3) over ST. LOUIS
The Jags played plenty well enough in their last dome game in Indy. They will get the W this time.
SAN DIEGO (-6) over Kansas City
I might just pick the Chiefs at home and against them on the road for the rest of the year. Why not?
Miami (+2.5) over NEW ORLEANS
Tom Benson is going straight to hell if he moves the Saints from N.O.
after the Hurricane Katrina struggles. Straight to hell. I have no
doubt about this.
SAN FRANCISCO (+11) over Tampa Bay
Bucs are winning this, but they don’t win big. It’s just not the way it
goes. By the way…Ken Dorsey vs. Chris Simms/Tim Rattay has a good
chance of vaulting into the Pantheon of Crappy QB Matchups, right
alongside Randy Fasani/Rob Johnson (CAR/TB 2002) and Joey
Harrington/John Navarre (DET/ARZ 2004).
Philadelphia (+3.5) over DENVER
The Broncos’ inevitable collapse begins…now.
NEW ENGLAND (-9) over Buffalo
Wonder if Tedy Bruschi can resusciate the fantasy team-killing Patriots defense…
PITTSBURGH (-10) over Baltimore
Benny Roth, baby.
