P-F18: Week 2 NFL Bonus - #MNFtwo'd

Monday the NFL gave us two prime-time football games, but what if the NFL genie granted us two of something else?

Most of you want MONEY. It’s been said in song that money can’t buy happiness, but it has been shown by science that money *can* buy happiness. Money can buy hot tracks, but it can’t buy sense. To I Look Good On Top (BF), Beelzebubbles (CC), 17 National Championships (CG), Something Creative (KS), and Shake and Baker (JN): Remember to practice good picking. Use your extra money on experiences, not things. (3 points)

Instead of two million or billions of dollars, I respect Dirt Burglars (DT) wish of TWO PAYCHECKS. That’s a responsible choice. He didn’t mention, but let’s assume someone with that class would also work two jobs for those two paychecks. (4 points)

Also with a mature response was Cornholio’s Bunghole (BO) (editor's note: I see the irony there now), who wanted TWO 401K’s. Stay healthy, my friend. (5 points)

Others felt a little more Charlie Sheen than Bill Gates. Bevo XV wanted TWO TOM HERMAN SEASON OPENING WINS. That stings. True homer Gigem! (AP) and Must Be The Salsa (CK) wanted TWO ASTROS WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIPS. (4 points)

Two of you knew the answer to the meaning of life was buried somewhere in this game. Katy Tigers (RH) wanted TWO PICK'EMS THAT COUNTED. One before the games and one after. That sounds fair. Cockypantherfan (SZ) wanted TWO PICK'EM ACCOUNTS AND TWO FERRARIS. Two of those sound reasonable. (4 points)

It takes two to tango, it takes to hands to clap, and it takes two to make it outta sight. HeavyWeight (CR) will take TWO WOMEN (3 points). Case’s Clydesdales (MM) wants TWO CHICKS AT THE SAME [damn] TIME (3 points). Accidentchild (MN) effectively used two wishes in his answer first for TWO WOMEN, and then to undo his first wish with “NOT REALLY, ONE'S ENOUGH!” (4 points)

Big Papa’s (AM) answer needs some unpacking. His answer was “BOOBS,” and I’m not sure if *HE* wanted two boobs or if he’d like to see two boobs. I don’t want to overlook the plight of the one-boobed. (5 –sympathy- points)

Despite what I preach, not everyone is picky. Statistically Improbable (DR) is good with TWO CONCUBINES… or TWO RIBEYE STEAKS. Money could buy your happiness. (5 points, -1 point for not being picky enough)

I’m going to rank the final 7 answers, which kind of all fell into an “other” category.

After the first bowl, you will be fkn sick of ‘em. (3 points)

#6: SUPERPOWERS - Guru (ANe)
Smart to keep these on the down low. The X-Men will be jealous and will probably kill you. (4 points)

#5: TWO WISHES - Left Hand Scissors (GN)
Not sure if there will be a quid pro quo by the giver that doesn’t allow using the second wish for additional wishes. However, rest assured the second wish will never be used to free the genie. (4 points)

#4: TWO STARTING QBs - 2QBs or not 2QBs (CT)
A blessing or a curse, but either way, apropos for your team name. (5 points)

The best gift in life a second chance [at life!] (5 points)

#2: SATURDAYS IN A WEEKNorthside Nukes (KH)
YAAASSSS!!1! (5 points)

Two commas in a paycheck would mean a million dollars, which sounds practical but is actually silly and mostly unobtainable, making this my favorite answer. (6 points)


  1. Props to 2 Paychecks.
    2 Horn wins nice, but I take
    2 Astros World Series wins!

  2. I like the 2 Saturdays...always needed!

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! Holiday, celebrate! Masks [ON]/OFF (RH): “Fried turkey, gravy and pie, oh my!!” (5) -- love this answer Swamp Dogs (DR): “Christmas!!! Put up that tree!” (3) Any (other) sport will do A Northmen (AN): “bout time to focus on the real sport, table tennis!!” (4) -- feels like a baseball slight T-Horns Fall (AM): “Water polo season is here” (4)  -- I'm on to you guys Hun

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
