12/20 10:48PM update: what the heck is wrong w/ the 'boys? 12/21 3:25PM update: Who is interested in that Falcon/Viking game? I am. 12/21 7:03PM update: You know what "Hot"-lanta. Thanks for nothing. Newsflash, Atlanta ain't *that* great. What's so hot about it? Timbaland? Thanks for bringing record-scratching-with-your-mouth back. And Paula Dean's act? Too much fkn butter man... and I like butter, but seriously! Beat it Crap-lanta... you cost me the lead... and there is that too much butter record scratching beat box thing. 12/21 10:35PM update: Dear New York City. You are truly the greatest city in our nation. Thank you for winning in overtime. New York, I love you more than Atlanta... even if you do make your home in New Jersey. 12/22 10:59PM update: Daaaaa Bearsss. Congrats to Gary for being the only person to hit double digits... and he picked the MNF score on the nose. That's not worth sht since there was no need for the tiebreaker this week, but

Where's Week 17 Card?

Image
Wait! You know I have an excuse. Last night some [insert whatever you want here] * T-boned me when I was on the way to Stag's Head for happy hour. I know what you are thinking, if I was going to happy hour then I wasn't really going to get that card out anyway. But that's crap... I would have cranked that out and fixed the mistakes later... that's the Pick'em way. By the time everything was settled, I wasn't exactly in the card building mood. But now I've created a picture as therapy and I'm ready to get this card out (are there errors? who knows). [CLICK HERE FOR THE WEEK 17 CARD] Since its a little on the late side, here's what *I'm* going to hit you guys with. Everyone has got Indy for the Thursday game. You get that pick for free. If you don't want Indy, then you gotta email me or just send this card back to me before the kickoff tomorrow night. Not sure what you are looking at in that picture? Those dudes (at a stop) came across thr

I'm a little late in the day posting this, but I have a good excuse. I was sitting front row at the Texans game next to the St. Arnold's dude. Tee Dee yo! 10:41PM update: Bob is the winner of Survivor... and we have a tie in the NFL Pick'em contest again. 10:40PM (Monday) update: *Yawn* great MNF game... not. Speaking of not that great, what the bleep was up with that Kanye West performance(s) on SNL? Flu? Or Suck? Cher called, she believes in life after auto-tone. 10:49AM (Thursday) update: bonus points updated Thanks to the Cowboys for getting me that point to tie things back up. I love you guys. I also love this Cowboy Chris guy. Nice.

Week 15 NFL Results

here is the play at home version... I don't know about you guys, but I'm particularly interested in the Falcons/'aints and the Bucs/Panther games ;) 3:15PM update: Saints win! no need for a rant this week... yet. Texans win... how 'bout that? Titans win and lock up the AFC South... VY will do that for you... even from the bench. 7:51PM update: Dallas lost... but it's just not as fun for me anymore... I kind of like their team these days. 10:33PM update: Wow... not too many upsets today. Almost everyone is going to end up in the double digits. Monday, 10:41PM update: I'll leave the semi-humorous geographical rants to Cain this week... The Saints and the Panthers worked for me this week. That means we have another tie up top in the NFL standings again.

NFL Contest Bonus Question: Turkey is kind of dry and boring. What meat would you wrap around or stuff inside the turkey to improve it, and what would you call your turkey culinary invention? I'm more of a sides guy than a turkey guy, but mostly because turkey is usually dry and boring. This question was clearly inspired by John Madden, and some of you guys just couldn't get the Turducken image out of your head. Bob 's suggestion is to "stuff a hen into a duck and then stuff that into the turkey and you have Turducken. Not my invention, but it fits the bonus question very well" (+1) . Gary appologetically suggests Turducken, saying "I know I stole the idea, but it is hard to improve on greatness" (+1) . Open ended bonus points are always about creativity, so that just ain't gonna cut it. Is anyone surprised these guys are LSU grads? Kirby earned some points for referencing John Madden and still coming up with a tasty suggestion, albeit one that

NCAA Contest Bonus Question: What college mascot would be the tastiest to serve at Thanksgiving dinner? Amy and Carrie would serve Trojans (+2) to their guests. I'm not sure which kind they would be bringing to their table, but I suppose either Trojan would provide some protection. Crystal likes to keep it dirty. She suggested a Gamecock (+2) ... and you can bet there was some extra formatting and a space inserted into that rooster. Ugh, did I just type about inserting something into a rooster? My bad, but speaking of....... Kyle , fresh off an Oregon bachelor party suggests Peking Duck (+2) . You know... Chinese... Thanksgiving... get it? No? Well often Chinese restaurants are the only places open. There is that... or there is Dave's suggestion. He was feelin' some Thanksgiving Duck (+1) , only he wanted his with mango salsa (clearly a big fan of Geiko too, I'm sure he extended an invite to the cave men). Justin suggested Duck (+1) as well, he

How about a little halftime action? Since marching bands are a polarizing topic for some, I'll keep my comments reserved. Baby Bambi called, he wants his footing back.

Amanda wins the week and we have a new leader. Don't get excited folks, it's just Cain ;) Oh and speaking of the Texans first MNF game, I met up with fellow Pick'em playas Kirby and Justin after they attended the game. We drank a few (more), Justin rode through a Whataburger drive-thru in the fastest golf cart I've ever seen, and we left the bar mere minutes before they probably would have thrown us out anyway. The night ended with Kirby simulating a teabagging of a dead pigeon. Good times. Check out that sack! I don't know if it really comes out in the cell phone pic, but that was seriously the flattest pigeon I've ever seen.
