Well, I would call that a VERY successful NFL season. Of course, Colts and Saints fans might disagree, but I digress.
Yet again, the NFL keeps us riveted until the final seconds of its regular season. Meanwhile, Roger Goodell smiles from his highchair pulling in another $50 million a year for his efforts. Not a bad gig if you can get it.
Speaking of making money, our little experiment worked to a tee. We invited celebrity guests every week to predict games against me and the masterminds at The Wife Hates Sports and we all finished over .500.

I did not foresee that sort of accuracy but the people we chose know their sports so in retrospect, the results are not all that surprising. Thanks to all those who participated. Very nicely done!
Now that you got your feet wet, here’s your chance to do it all again and win fabulous prizes in the process.

Monday Night game:
Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Rams (-4)
Correct size…Comfortable in the thought the ex-offensive lineman doesn’t have a great track record in these things…
Las Vegas Raiders at Cincinnati Bengals (-6 ½) – The Cincinnati Varicose Pumpkins cover
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills (-4 ½) – Hey Buffalo Bill…who did you kill? Bill Belichick and Mac Jones…
Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-8 ½) – Fuck you. Enjoy your feast of roast Eagle.
San Francisco 49ers at Dallas Cowboys (-3) Plowboys get ambushed
Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs (-12 ½) Engineering fact: structural steel loses most of it’s strength at only half it’s melting point. The City of Fountains will COVER all that melted Steeler.
Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Rams (-4) A bit early for Easter/Passover, but the College of Cardinals will be cleansed in the blood of the L.A. Lambs.
Good luck to all that join. May Chump and I win. I mean… uh…
