NFL Bonus: Two MNF games. For it? Against it?


Unlike the tailgate intensity question, there is no wrong answer here, only weak efforts.

The For Its

14 National Championships (CG): Love it. Wifee, not so much. Double up, come up for my bets lost on Saturday and Sunday. (+3, double up, like)

A Northmen (ANo): For it... you can't ever get enough football yo! (+3, yo)

AccidentChild (MN): For it. Why not? (+2, seriously)

Beelzebubbles (CCo): Always for! I can switch during commercials and never feel football empty. (+2, football empty is a terrible feeling)

Ferments-A-Lot (GN): Does The Man really like it? I'm for anything that irritates The Man. (+2)

Bevo XIV (DW): For it. It's one fewer game that I can't watch on Sunday due to regional and TV distribution limitations, and the west coast gets a bone. We're only about 5 years away from one or two games a night each weeknight with all 4 (plus cable) networks chipping in billions for the rights to one or two days a week. (+3, it's always all about the money)

BlitzKrieg (RK): For it. As a fan of a team that normally plays in the 1 p.m. Eastern slot on Sundays, I tend to miss at least half of the NFL games a week. I love the idea of moving one of these games to Monday night to create a doubleheader -- I now have the option of seeing one more live game a week. (+3, practical)

Bourbon Street Bounty Hunters (JC): FOR anything that gives us more football staggered across a given week, period. (+2, me too)

Double D (DD): For it. Duh. Universal law. If one is good, two MUST be better (football games, carburetors, girls). (+3, carburetors… good stuff)

Gig'em (AP): For it! Just wish there were better matchups! Looking forward to all the Thursday Night games this year though. (+3, prerequisite is sh!tty West Coast match-up)

Kentucky Wildmen (GF): I have two DVR boxes now, that means I can go elsewhere and watch something interesting instead of the Cartoon Network. So I am for it!!! I just wish that we would quit showing Big Easy(t) games on Thursday night. (+3, that answer is all over the place… love it)

Pimp Possee (JBe): For it...able to watch more prime time games. (+2, more is good)

WhoDat4Life (Lo): I would LOVE it...that would be two reasons for Mondays not to completely suck! (+2, Mondays do kinda suck)


The Against Its

Cacti3 (DCo): Totally against!!!!!!!!!!!! (+2, but the 12 slammers make me think you are not serious)

Chumlee Banditos (KP): Against it. They should spread it out over a week. Thursday night opener except when the DNC/RNC have a prominent speaker like say the President. The Obama team were probably worried that no one would have watched his speech if it ran at the same time as the opener. Sunday games as usual. Monday night football game and a Tuesday game. (+3, I'm OK with that)

JoeMama_TheGreek (JHu): Nope. Don't like it. (+1, but why?)

Large Donkey IPA (KS): Against it. How about a Tuesday night game? And the announcers are always awful. (+2, I'm all for a Tuesday Night game)

Levain's Cookies (A-C): Against it. First one starts too early, second one ends too late. (+2, fair enough)

Mr. Smokeypants (KH): Against, can't stay up that late anymore. #DaddySmokeypants (+2, #old)

Naked Bootleggers (JN): Against it. 6pm still on the road coming home from work and missing the first quarter, 10:15pm already in bed and won't make it past the first quarter. If you think about it with two games I get to see one whole game, so maybe I am for it! (+2, ha, and maybe you work too much)

One Man Wolf Pack (MF): Against, I don't like west coast nfl teams anyway. (+2, that is the problem with the 2nd game)

Replacement Picks (ANe): Completely against it. My access to ESPN is limited, which means more football on Monday nights is less football for me. If it was worked out where I could watch more football on Monday nights, then I would be all for it. More football = better life. (+2, interesting perspective)

SITKNM (JHa): Against it. (+1, cool, but why?)

Team Awesome (SE): Against it, should only be one game on monday night it. Tradition. (TRADITION! That was the secret bonus word for this question. +3)

The Chex Mixers (KW): Against it, I have football palate fatigue by then and need a coming down game, not a double jam down your throat event again. (+3… for wording)

TXH8R (DT): Don't watch it/them in the first place. (+1. What!?)

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! (AP): “Go to sleep on time during the week!” (3)  -- apparently you aren’t into MACtion Beelzebubbles (CC): “Now I can get some decent sleep during the work week” (3) More time for football 18 National Championships (CG): “Plenty of football and golf” (2) Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK): “MACtion!” (4) -- yes!

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. I am ready to sign up at 3, and I am ready to fill out the registration form . 4 Each year we play 4 games that are guaranteed to keep your weekends interesting from the end of August until mid-February. 5 Game #1: NCAA Pick’em (played against the spread) 15 games per week Games will list a point spread for you to pick against Contest represents approximately 1/3 of the registration pot; Both
