NCAA Pick'em: Week 2 (semi-live)

I'm sitting at home at the moment, so this week I'll do a little live blogging during games.

10:33AM: I'm still missing cards from 3 people... but I'm posting everything up anyway. What is up with the lack of good games today. Blah. Only about 30 more minutes of Kirk Shitstreet.

10:38AM: ESPN College Gameday has been teasing an Erin Andrews appearance... her appearance will improve the show tenfold.

10:54AM: TiVo saves marriages, raises better children, and has healing powers. I'm 16 minutes behind now, but I did catch Erin Andrews (who possesses 2 of the 3 powers listed above).

12:37PM: Ugh... how are all the games on TV right now involving the Big 10? Beer is helping me get through this relative football boredom.

12:45PM: In glass half full news... at halftime, Michigan is playing like crap, the Cheese are only leading Marshall by 3 (after going down by 14 to open the game), and Ohio State is losing to Ohio University... sweet.

2:11PM: Woohoo! The big eleven pulled it out in their 11am games. Time to update the card.

2:13PM: Why the hell did I put the Georgia Tech/Boston College game on the card?! I'm disappointed in myself. *drink*

3:07PM: 4 beers in... good. Games... still suck.

5:00PM: sobering up to go visit the in-laws... "live" updates will be suspended 'till tonight.

10:02PM: ugh... late getting home... TiVo is my own personal savior... Texas game will not be missed.

10:05PM: WTF!?!? USF/UCF went into overtime, and somehow Texas is down by 3... the beer fridge is my own personal savior. Oh yeah, and thanks ESPN for moving the game to a channel Comcast doesn't get. Sweet.

12:44AM: Ok... that 9:15PM kickoff sounded great on paper... need sleepy now... I'm shutting this bad boy down. peace out.

5:32AM: Why. Why do kids not respect the sleep requirements of their parents. Seriously, how much hungrier could you be if you just wait a couple hours?

Below is the Week 2 scorecard.

P-F21: Week 10 NFL Bonus - Baseball is over, now what?

Losing baseball season isn’t like losing football, but it can still be a difficult event for some. While we are deprived of baseball season’s physical presence, we can still reconcile -- you know what, we’ll figure it out. Below are some ways you are honoring the memory or just moving right along. Sleep Astros!

P-F21: Week 7 NFL Bonus: Best news of the year!

It’s a mad world. Let’s parse out some good. Everyone gets POSITIVE bonus scores! (One thing though. I forgot to add “in the NFL” to my bonus question, but maybe you guys behaved yourselves) A Northmen (AN): “Brittney's dad will no longer be her conservator! #freebritney” She went on with a bunch of crap about TSwift, but I’ll spare you. On Brit, of course, she should have the right the fk up her life. That’s great news! +4 T-Horns (AM): “Matt Jones developing earlier than expected.” Wait, are we talking about Mac Jones? +2? Astros! (AP): “OU/Texas coming to the SEC!” This is great news. See what happened is Texas got in OU’s head, then Texas “Trojan Horsed” their themselves in the SEC, where Texas will then ruin the SEC from the inside. +3 Buddy the Chimp (BC): “Bananas.” Buddy, you get bananas all the time. Dream bigger. +3 Cornholio's Bunghole (BO): “Just destroying America is not enough for Joe Biden, so he destroyed Afghanistan. I wonder what country will be ne

1 I once watched this planetarium show on dark matter. I’m familiar with matter. I’m not saying current or future me could define it, but it is like -- stuff. However dark matter isn’t the dark stuff. Dark matter is like all the other stuff that we aren’t familiar with, and on top of that, apparently the universe contains an unknown amount of matter that we cannot observe! 2 Speaking of matter, small wins matter. Not only do small wins add up to major accomplishments, but small wins have also been shown to give enormous emotional boosts. (I think you see where I am going with this.) 3 Enough said.
