A Quick Update

I will continue to post my college football and NFL picks, but next Saturday I will be posting something a little different. Since I’m a big Star Wars nerd as well as a big fan of the NBA, I will write an article on which NBA Player fits which character in the Star Wars universe. ...

Fantasy Football Post #5: Week 4 + Thursday Night Football

Well I lost. I lost 97-79 in part because my team couldn’t perform and because my opponent could.  I definitely didn’t count on this guy having a big game.   Drew Brees killed me with his 31 fantasy points. It also didn’t help that Mike Wallace only got me two and that Vincent Jackson only ...

A Small Tribute to Ken Norton

In the golden era of the heavyweight division, the likes of Muhammad Ali, Joe Fraizer, and George Foreman engaged in some of the most memorable fights of all time. This trio managed to overshadow other good fighters such as Jerry Quarry, Ron Lyle, and Earnie Shavers. However, the best guy not part of the trio ...

College Football Week 3 Picks

Well goodness gracious people could I have stunk up the blog even more with my football predictions over the last two weeks.  Again the goal here is to get back to .500; however much of a daunting climb that may be.  I also would like people to know that I’m not an expert and that ...

Week 3 Fantasy Football

Well so far I’m 1-0 in Week 3 of my NFL picks as I correctly predicted a Chiefs upset tonight.  Now let’s look at my fantasy matchup for Week 3. First let’s look at the league standings. Courgar Alumni Association Standings Season:20132012   EAST TEAM W L T PCT GB Crimson Roulette 2 0 0 1.000 ...

NFL Week 3 Picks

Well I fared slightly better last week finishing 11-5 in my NFL picks compared to 9-7 in Week 1.  College football was still atrocious though, and with that said we need to move on to Week 3 of the NFL season.  Let’s start with a special reunion game.  Chiefs at Eagles (2-0-0) Chiefs — (1-1-0) ...

Just Another Night For Mayweather

  One of the most highly anticipated and promoted boxing matches of recent years ended up being just another lopsided victory for Floyd Mayweather (45-0 26KO) as he earned a majority decision victory over Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-1-1 30KO). With this win, Mayweather captured the WBC, WBA, and Ring Magazine 154 pound titles. From the ...

College Football Week 3 Picks

Well my weekend (part of Saturday, and all day Sunday) will soon be underway.  I messed up big time in my picks for college football last weekend and now is the time to make up for those losses and come out ahead.  Let’s start with a Pac-12/Big 12 matchup. #16 UCLA at #23 Nebraska (16) ...

Here’s the rest of Week 2

Bear with me people there’s a good chance we could be on this schedule for a while considering that work is understaffed and I have to work a lot of double shifts.  The Jets upset over New England obviously didn’t come to fruition, but they did come close, losing by a final score of 13-10.  It’s ...

Previewing the First “official” TNF Game

I’m going to do things a little differently.  First I’m going to preview the game between the Jets and the Patriots, and then after work I will do the rest of my Week 2 picks.  Work is starting to turn into a slave labor camp so I’m going to need as much sleep as possible ...

AL MVP Race

Miguel Cabrera will likely win his second MVP. Like always, his offensive numbers are ridiculous. A .350 batting average, 43 HR, and 133 RBIs will usually earn you a couple of awards but the stats don’t stop there for “Miggy”. His sabermetric stats aren’t bad either to say the least. So far this year, his ...

Dolphins at Browns (0-0-0) Dolphins — (0-0-0) Browns — Both ...
