P-F16: Secret Santa! (Week 17 NFL Bonus)

This Santa has a secret It's the collision of Pick'em Bonus with the time-honored tradition of giving half assed gifts, and of course the subsequent awkward reception of said gifts. Maybe it'll be a new tradition. Just to get it out of the way, the following people got coal: Gig'em (AP), 16 National Championships (CG), Crigga88 (CR), Tannesaurus Rex (CT), Pimp Possee (JB), The Velvet Neutral Ground (JC), Talks to Animals (JD), Lost Cause (JH), General Wartz (JM), Shake and Baker (JN), Creekside Body Count (KH), Geaux JJ (KZ), One man Wolfpack (MF), Dirt Burglars (DT).  +0 So sad! Speaking of sad, A Northmen (ANo) get the first gift. Sad Fans ! You ever hear a sad songs and feel an emotional connection with a similar feeling of heartache, disappointment, loneliness, grief, or depression? Seeing a sad fan has the exact opposite effect. Seeing someone super sad about their favorite sports team is guaranteed to make you feel better 100% of the time.  +4 S

P-F16: Hey Wizards. What Is Your Patronus?

First of all, what the heck is a patronus? My wife and/or kids have dragged me to each of the Harry Potter movies, as well as the recent Fantastic Beasts movie. The Potter movies weren't my jam, but the Beasts movie seems to have read from the Marvel Hit Movie Cookbook, and it followed the recipe well. Don't ask me what Potter book a Patronus was mentioned (or if it is in all of them). I googled patronus and (of course) the Harry Potter wiki page was the first link. Here is what I found. "This ancient and mysterious charm conjures a magical guardian, a projection of all your most positive feelings. The Patronus Charm is difficult, and many witches and wizards are unable to produce a full, corporeal Patronus, a guardian which generally takes the shape of the animal with whom they share the deepest affinity. You may suspect, but you will never truly know what form your Patronus will take until you succeed in conjuring it." In normal people words, I assume this is p

P-F16 Week 14 Card and Scoreboard Links

Friends, another wonderful(ly awesome/terrible) NCAA regular season. Did you know this was the last week of your P-F16 NCAA Pick'em life? I bet General Wartz (JM) knows. You bet General Wartz knows. He's friggin focused on his craft for 13 weeks and is picking 54% against the spread. That is at least enough to stay drunk in Vegas.  But it is the last week of our P-F16 NCAA Pick'em life. Do you think that General Wartz is sitting behind the computer a little scared. Maybe he is a little depressed from that season long high of picking ass (tm). General Wartz has been beating the spread so hard, embarrassing our collective picking skillz, being the Man, and taking home that championship. General Wartz is the example.  I can't even imagine the pressure General Wartz has to not totally blow this last card. What is going on between his temples? He probably isn't focused on anything else this week but filing a perfect NCAA card. He'd probably gladly share

P-F16: Thanksgiving with Pickem Dash Football Fam

If there is a tradition as rich as Football on Thanksgiving, it is me grading what you brought to our virtual dinner. Let's eat. Sides are the star of every Thanksgiving meal. Today we have macaroni and cheese from  One Little, Two Little, Three Little Donkeys (KS) . He says that's all you need, but if that is the case, then I think he misspelled gravy ( +3 ). Accidentchild (MN) brought corn pudding . I had two real Thanksgiving meals this year and no corn pudding ( +4 , for the addition). Shake and Baker (JN) brings stuffing , which I'm sure he's cleared of any bacteria ( +3 ). And this meal needs some cranberry sauce . In a can (check). On sale 2 for 1 (check). February three years ago (still good). Thanks  Swamp Dogs (DR) ( +5 ). For some reason, we still pile bread on a plate with a meat and eight sides. Bevo XV (DW) brought those Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits . Those things are magic ( +4 ). We also have those part dry, part gummy white rolls on the tab

P-F16: Commish A.M.A. (Week 10 NCAA Bonus)

Commish:  Alright alright! Ask me anything. Let’s get this started. Alexandria Cyclones (SS): What motivates you? Commish: Impressing someone with something they weren’t expecting. Talks to Animals (JD): Why the heck isn't pickem legal to play for money? you could fill out your slips at the lotto machine! Commish: I’m for it. We could play at the Astrodome Casino. Big Papa's Picks (AM): So we get 1/2 a point for a tie in the NFL? Commish: Nope. There clearly shouldn’t be ties in football. All ties should be decided by a place kicking competition between the two teams’ offensive lineman. So that’s not on me. That’s on Goodell. Bevo XV (DW): What would it take for Baylor ban to end? Commish: NCAA sanctions, admission of guilt, or a majority league vote to bring them back -- whichever comes first. A Northmen (AN): I got nothing. I know all the answers ;-) Commish: What is “how I feel all the time”? And what else? Creekside Body Count (KH): Erin Andrews or Sam Ponder?

P-F16: Week 4 NCAA Bonus: How many points do the Longhorns give up in the bye week?

How many points would the Longhorns give up in the bye week? Who knows, but opening up your end zone to the opposition is definitely not against Charlie's core values. I could tell that not all of you guys like the open ended nonsensical bonus questions, but I'm using my commissioner powers to give some of you points beyond the stated 2 points for answering. The answers came in some basic categories. CLARIFICATIONS: Cactie (DCo): Huh!!!!! The question is how many points do the Longhorns give up in the bye week. Since it is the bye week, you would think that the correct answer would be zero, but if you saw the box score on any of the recent games, it appears that teams are still scoring even as I type this post! +2 Huntwick Hosers (KW): Loaded question, my answer is purple. Better question, how many will the Purple Wizard score on this D in Manhattan, Kansas. But also no, this question is not loaded. +2 Gig'em (AP): Depends on how many more starters get arrested t

P-F16 Week 3 NFL Bonus: We banned Baylor from P-F16 last week. What should we ban in the NFL?

Protesting is easy. Protesting is kind of fun. Life is often too stable, and from what Jurassic Park taught me about Chaos Theory, protesting feels right because it probably is right. Therefore henceforth and until such time as we lose interest, we shall balance the P-F force and protest something NFL. What is your vote? We should ban banning. It's offensive. -Huntwick Hosers (+1) I know the anthem was on your mind, but JJ Abrams has already fixed America.

You think their owner cares what you think? (Pimp Possee; One Little, Two Little, Three Little Donkeys; Butt Pickers +2) It's also way too easy to ban the Cowboys.

The Official 2016 Pickem-Football Annual Recruitment Post

Dear Pickers, I would like to announce my candidacy for the office of commissioner of picking things in the upcoming 2016 football season. VOTE STRAIGHT TICKET AND SKIP TO THE END! As a longtime maker of decisions, and a self-proclaimed commissioner of football picks for fourteen years, I consider myself very fortunate to be able to preach these successes on the world wide web. My concentration and vision have kept me alive for some time now. And I’ve seen some stuff you guys. That stuff is depressing and offensive, and all I want to do now is use “progress” in this sentence. Now, more than ever, I think it’s time… it’s time to keep mostly the same blood, mostly the same faces, mostly the same thinking, and most importantly, some Pickem Dash Football Dot Com action. It’s also time to review our rules; our constitution if you will. In order to achieve personal picking growth, we must adopt a radically conservative and progressive avant-garde approach to avoid all of the bad st

P-F15: NFL Playoff Pick'em Challenge, Part 1

There are* times in all of our lives when we need a new beginning. Maybe you failed to place in a regular season contest. Perhaps you let your mind drift when you saw that monster of a bowl card. Now you feel far from a master picker. Previous disappointments may have caused you to drift from picking. You need a new beginning. But is it even possible? And if it is, where do you start? The thought of a new beginning is scary, because you don't want to risk another pick'em failure. But you aren't content. Your soul needs to pick. You could make the difficult and perilous journey to the promise land, OR you could just click a few boxes and wager some points! Because. You. Are. A. Human. Being. Forget Babylon. It is a pile of rubble. How about couch and computer. You earned this chance by joining at the beginning of the season. Follow me now. * I had a college English teacher in college that failed our papers if we started a sentence with "there are" or &
