Post by Nines » Wed Aug 22, 2018 5:09 pm

Reprised from last year's invitation:

"Strap on your cleats and adjust your package, the 2018 NFL season is fast approaching. If you think you can pick the winners of each and every NFL game (with confidence points) while competing head-to-head against the most accomplished prognosticating nosepickers in the nation then join my NFL Pick 'Em League."

Thanks, nines.

Larry Csonka lives in Sarah Palin's hometown of Wasilla, Alaska.

He reports that the Dolphins vets still have reunions when the last undefeated team in a given season loses.

Pretty funny.

He hunts and fishes 24/7 up here. He has had a paying gig doing TV commercials for the local back pain clinic for the last 20 years.

Here is Csonk in his element, doing a float trip down Little Willow Creek, about 30 miles from his house.

You're actually not in such a bad position. Like me, your throw-away score is high. That means when we hit that week (or two) when everybody really does shit, you're going to gain quite a few points.

Tight race as it always is. Anno is correct, we're due for a huge underdog rally in the next few weeks (historically and IMHO) where players might have to rely on saved points. We'll all be decimated on points when 8 out of 14 underdogs pull off an upset win. I've seen it year after year. You just have to ride it out.

Thanks for the pep talk, gents.

But I don't give up like Anno does, even when the cause is hopeless, like when LadyJ is on her game. And this cause is far from hopeless, with only one punter so far scoring over 100 points in a week. That's like 1% or so.

Though maybe I should start watching more than one game a week?

I just read this post on the Pick 'Em message board:

You carry on being a Dick...

So conflicted. I wanted the Niners to win but had 15 points on the Pack.

But most everyone else had 13-15 on the Packers too, so it would have been a wash (except for COOP, who had 15 on the Niners). ... Who is COOP again?

Anyway, in a case like that, I would just forget about the Pick 'Em and root for my team.
