Hey, I was three for three last week.  Whoo-hoo!  If I can get the Upset of the Week right this week, I’ll be back to .500 or better in all three categories.  It’s almost beginning to sound like I know what I’m talking about. I said ‘almost’!  And keep those comments to yourself, will ya’? […]


This has been a strange season indeed!    At the beginning of the year, you could hear predictions from all over the sports world, justifying nearly every team’s guaranteed spot in the World Series.  (Sorry Houston and Cubby fans, I don’t remember hearing either one of those teams mentioned!)

For two weeks in a row, I’ve picked two out of three correct.  It almost makes it look like I know what I’m doing.  Scary thought, eh? I need to improve on my Upset picks, and this week will not make it easy. Here is this week’s Lock of the Week (2-2). I had this […]
