Not a good way to start the season, but lemme tell you, it was close! In week one I went 1-2, bringing my 2008 grand total to..... 1-2.
Let's recap the LOCKS of the Week!
First I said:
BRING THAT TUNA UPSTREAM and pick the Dolphins to win and shock the northeast!Final Score: Jets 20, Dolphins 14
Hey you have to admit, that was a lot closer than we thought! You know, I like Chad Pennington, and if he could throw a ball farther than six yards, they'd have won the game. It's pretty obvious that Miami's no dunce to sneeze at (unlike me and football picks so far).
Next I said:
Take a free ride and bet the HOUSE on the Falcons to cover as a rare home underdog. You can take that to the POUND.. um er, I mean bank.
Final score: Falcons 34, Lions 21
Man, I was feeling SO good about this. Imagine... everybody from pillar to post laughed at me when I called my shot. It was the first LOCK I made... I was saaaaaving that pick. How about Michael Turner yesterday?! Michael Turner is the man. 220 yards, 2 tds for that porker? ah-bdbdbdbdbdbdbdbTHAT'S ALL FOLKS!!
and then, the big one....
I'm taking the (ba ba ba bum) deep in the HEARRRT of TEXANS to cover the massive 6.5 spread.
Final Score: Steelers 38, Texans 17
Hoooooooooo boy. I deserved a dunce cap for a week, just for that one pick. Well, at least I was right about busting the over/under. Just happened to be all Steelers. I'm pretty happy, since my team dominated, but I'm stayin' away from picking Steeler games.
