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!) Most early projections did not pan out […]


After a shaky start, I’ve now picked seven of the last nine correct.  Almost makes it sound like I know what I’m doing, eh? Alright, keep the wise cracks to yourself!   Here is this week’s Lock of the Week (3-2). The Dallas Cowboys at the Baltimore Ravens.  It used to be that when these […]


This week, the title should actually include the entire week, rather than just the weekend.  Read on to find out why. 1)      It’s not safe to be in the AP top ten this season! Every week we see at least one or two top ten teams get knocked off their perches, and this week was […]


I know, you’re probably scratching your head, sounding something like Tim the Tool Man Taylor – HUGHHMM?  (If you don’t get that one, ask your father!) Of course someone will win the World Series.  (Okay, technically it will be a team.  Lighten up, will ya’?) The problem is, this has been one of the weirdest […]


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 […]


I almost ran out of time this week, but I couldn’t bear the thought of not sharing my life lessons this week.  So here they are. 1)      Okay, I was wrong about the whole ‘Genius’ thing! Three weeks ago, I declared Rex Ryan to be a genius, since he obviously had the world fooled (see […]


Well I got a little bit of redemption last week, getting two out of three correct, after going 0-3 in week 2.  Unfortunately, my Lock of the Week pick is starting to look like the Madden’s Curse. I’ve received thousands of emails from fans all over the world, begging me not to pick their teams […]


I received such a great response from this last week (see THINGS I LEARNED THIS WEEKEND (from watching sports), dated 9/10/12), that I decided to make it a regular post. So without any further ado….. 1)      Okay, maybe ‘genius’ was going a bit too far! Last week I was singing the praises for the Jets […]


Since this was the first week of the NFL regular season, and things rarely go as planned in week one, I decided to make a list of a few things that I learned while watching America’s favorite sport this weekend. I came up with a short list of items, then realizing that the short list […]


It’s my favorite time of the year.  The NFL preseason games are over and week one of the real deals are here.  All of the predictions have been made, the fantasy leagues have been formed and drafted, and the fans are perched on the edge of their seats, ready to root for their favorite teams […]
