2010 NFL Playoff Contest - Official Open Post

SUPER BIG GAME PICK UPDATE: (via PricewaterhouseCoopers Longhorn Dave) Summary: Dickey: 988 wagered on Pittsburgh (+2.5) Schneider: 844 wagered on Pittsburgh (+2.5) GNorris: 780 wagered on Pittsburgh (+2.5) MNorris: 0 wagered on Houston Texans Okay, kidding on the Texans part, but he said neither team, no points. So I guess it's Dickey and MNorris (with Final Jeopardy! crafty type wagering) Dave SUPER BIG GAME PICK UPDATE #2: If any of four other people with point totals higher than 311 would have wagered on the Pack, they would have won. BUT THEY DIDN'T!  Congrats Matt. Nice strategery. The road to the Death Star goes through........ Seattle. The first sub-.500 team to ever make the NFL playoffs. Nice one NFL. And here I thought the bowl system is stupid. I really like football though. I even like bad football. If it were up to me, screw adding two more regular season games... everyone makes the playoffs! But is it just me or is the NHL the smartest professio

If you attended the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, you could not get a Little Caesars Pizza inside the stadium. Ford Field has a contract with a different pizza joint. Also, I was thinking, a "Pizza Bowl" sounds pretty good. Someone needs to get on that. What I drank during this game... Independence Brewing Company 's Stash IPA (Double IPA) and I

P-F10: Week 18 Bonus: What Went Wrong?

Football season's highs and lows AND/OR fantasy football highs and lows AND/OR life's highs and lows... Northmen (ANo) : I think the real question is....What didn't go wrong? The answer... at least the retractable roof still works! Poor Texans!! What else didn't go wrong you might ask?? The Cowboy's record! SWEET! I think Schadenfreude is one of the best medicines for depression... and alcohol... but I'm not a doctor. +4 Ferments-A-Lot (GN) : My decisions were swift and sound. However, I was given bad advice. Not taking blame is the American way. +4 Bevo XIV (DW) : I was turning left into BRC from the middle lane and the guy T-boned me. I agree. That is how it happened. -witness +4 Novacain (CCa) : Didn't watch enough football from Germany this year. It turns out that this makes a difference. The oooooollllllllllld German excuse. Nice one. +4 The Nine-Five (A-C) : My dad burned the pancakes. Bummer, unless "burning the pancakes"
