Look out, the sky is falling!
No, really, it is.
I've spent the week trying to figure out some way to distract myself from my 5-9 record last week. So, I'm thinking of natural disasters a lot.
By the way, did you hear the one about the idiot who picked the Panthers to beat the Bears? Maybe coming up with a suitable punchline will help.
Or denial. I made all those lousy picks last week as a joke...err, I bet someone I would do that...err...
I wasn't the only one who picked poorly. Look at everyone else- they're records were just as bad, heck, Hoge was 4-10.
I suppose that's rationalization.
But then reality sets in. Last week was just one of those bad weeks where nothing goes right, a once every few years scenario. So I guess I have that out of my system until 2014.
Anyway, enough lamenting. I'm only 40-36 for the year. But in comparison to the ESPN Experts, I'm not doing that badly. I'm still ahead of a few. I feel worse for them than I do for myself. They make a living doing this stuff.
This week has a few good games. Baltimore-New England should be good. And we have the Desperation Bowl- Dallas v. Minnesota.
There are a bunch of games that are a coin flip. This season is going to be ugly.
Tennessee- Monday Night.
