P-F21: Week 6 NCAA Bonus - Positivity Leaders

Many times you can’t control what happens to you, but you can always control your reaction to what’s happening. Everybody, even Alabama fans, deals with setbacks. How do wrap your head around a place like College Station? The answer is a positive attitude.

I struggle with depression nearly every year in mid-October, but I’ve learned to look at the better side of these events. Someone on the internet may say a positive attitude will cure disease. If it can do that, then it can no doubt lead to better picks.

This was your goal this week, and we practiced on the universally loved but historically disappointed Longhorns and Sooners. Are the Longhorns hurting inside? Secretly. The Sooners? If money can’t buy you love, then do you think wins can?

It is hate week for Sooners and Longhorns. Since all the fans will be filled with hate, say something nice to one or both of the fan bases.

Positive Leadership

A Northmen (AN) – “Thank you for putting the horns down, it means you hate us more than you love yourself. What an amazing compliment. Have a nice day hater. :-)” Alright alright alright. That’s positive. +4

Astros! (AP) – “On the bright side, one of you will win today!” While not negative, this is minimal positivity effort here. +1

Cornholio's Bunghole (BO) – “I've never been so happy to be from AZ.” It’s always sunny in Arizona? +2

18 National Championships (CG) – “We welcome you to the SEC and look forward to both sending A&M further into the dark ages of football.” If I know Texas, the Longhorns will slide into the SEC on the DL. You may not even notice. +3

Middle-aged Hot (CK) – “Longhorns: You are smarter and prettier. Sooners: Norman is better than College Station.” My favorite totally unbiased answer. +5

Swamp Dogs (DR) – “Bevo seems like a nice fellow.” He’s been working hard at media training. +3

Bevo XV (DW) – “Your commitment to hate is impeccable.” Ok, a compliment. +3

Left Hand Scissors (GN) – “No matter what they are dealing with all year living in Oklahoma, they still get excited about coming to Texas each year. I can't same the same for Texas fans. Baker Mayfield is also the man.” +3

Bourbon Barristers (KH) – “I ️ Lincoln Riley.” I do too. I hope he gets promoted. +3

Huntwick Hosers (KW) – “Bless your hearts.” #blessed +3

Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK) – “The property felons’ offense does a great job of getting away with holding every play.” They absolutely do. And good for them. +4

Struggling to be positive

Beelzebubbles (CC) – “nope.” That’s not positive. +1

T-Horns (AM) – “Can't spell Douche without OU.” While true, I think I see what you did there. +2

Buddy the Chimp (BC) – “Please don't fling poop at each other.” Buddy, flinging poop is a bad habit. +2

Riggsmtb713 (CR) – “Gig Em Aggies.” Gigging is something that isn’t positive for frogs and wasn’t something positive for ‘bama this past weekend. +1

Shake and Baker (JN) – “Beef is my favorite food.” More tasty than tiny horse. +3

That’s not nice

 [ON]/OFF (RH) – “OK...OK...I'll stop saying Choklahoma!” I do wish you said it more in October, but that’s not either of us being positive. +2

Accidentchild (MN) – “Texas - Hook'em!  OU - Go f*ck yourselves!” I get it, but I don’t think you understood the exercise. +2

Variants are for beer (KS) – “Fuck both of y’all but at least you will be in actual conference soon.” SEC is positive that they are the best conference. +2

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.
