P-F22: What is your biggest disappointment of so far?

By simply being a part of this league, you've distinguished yourself as a critical thinker and someone of exquisite taste. Given your high standards, you are bound to be disappointed now and then.

Sometimes, the disappointments are personal.

"My picks." - Cornholio's Bunghole (BO) +4

Sometimes it is with the teams we support.

"Seeing UT ebb and flow" - accidentchild (MN) +3

"Losing" - A Northmen (AN) +3

"(ew)ers" - Sixteen & One +3

Sometimes, it's that plus not having enough to watch in a living room full of TVs.

"It's 2022 and I still can't stream LHN with a dedicated subscription." - Left Hand Scissors (GN) +3

Guess that dream will never be fulfilled.

Speaking of dreams, at least I didn't hand any of you a blank Pick'em Dash Football Championship plaque.

"Texas A&M by far!" - Astros! (AP) +3

"My Aggies.  '#1 Recruiting Class' to '#1 WTFs?'" - Huntwick Hosers (KW) +3

"That Texas A&M has won 3 games." - Six Six in Shoes (GF) +4

Knowing GF is a funny guy and a Louisiana boy, I'm not sure if he's disappointed tamu has even won 3 games or that they've only won 3 games.

SEC fans are both collectively proud of themselves and deeply shamed that someone will figure out that outside of Alabama everyone is just a guy.

"The [LSU] loss to FSU stings. But happily, Alabama is the biggest disappointment." - OG Donkeys (KS) +5

Clever. Thoughts bama?

"BOB still rollin" Beelzebubbles (CC) +3

"Bill Obrien - he's a literal human turd." - 18 National Championships (CG) +3

If you had to just be a guy, you'd be lucky to be Vanderbilt.

"Vanderbilt shitting the bed in the 100-year anniversary of its stadium." - Bourbon Barristers (KH) +4

I assume this is your fun bedroom name for the Crimson Tide ??

"Bamey" - Bevo XV (DW) +2

A few other disappointments...

"Not winning the $2 Billion PowerBall.  How can you not get at least one number to match with five quick picks?  That’s 0 for 30!!  Sheesh!" - In BK We Trust (RH) +4

"Not having Tuesday & Wednesday MACtion in September and October." - Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK)

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.

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.

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.
