Well, it only took until week 15, but I finally racked up the old 3-0 record last week. (For those of you who are math whizzes like me, I took a few scattered weeks off during the season!) That’s the good news. The bad news is, we are now in week 16, which, along with […]

Just when I think I’m figuring out this wonderful thing we call the National Football League, I get thrown a major curve ball. (I know, I know, great metaphor – wrong sport. Deal with it!) Through the first four weeks of the season, I couldn’t pick an upset to save my life, even though they […]
