You know what feels shitty? Spending years working at something only to have it not pay off in the least. I know, we've all been there or some other useless fucking platitude, but save that shit for a motivational cat poster. There's no worse feeling than trying your best and failing.
Dear lord, last week was a bad week of picking football games. Let's hope this week is less bad. Let's get into it.
It's December. Tony Romo is playing football. Those things don't mix.
Better late than never, here are this week's NFL picks.
Thanksgiving is the best day of the entire year in America, and that is an objective fact. This is the case because it combines the four best non-sexual things on the planet. In no particular order (okay, maybe in particular order), those things are large quantities of food, all the booze you can drink, loved ones,…
So last week went pretty well as far as these picks are concerned, as we finished at 10-4 against the spread despite picking Kyle Orton on the road on Thursday night. This week I'm hoping for more of the same, despite picking Alex Smith's terrible ass on Thursday night.
Friend of the blog and former Deadspin commenter sweatingmullets is a huge Kansas City Chiefs fan. Well, not really, but he's a big Alex Smith fan, that's for sure. I think it's because he's living in Utah, Smith's college home, or something. But, yeah, he's a big fan of Smitty.
Nobody is reading this garbage anyway, so here's a quick rundown of this week's picks.
My birthday was on Wednesday, and I just drank my first 40 oz. ever. It wasn't bad, even though it's no Four Loko. Here's a quick NFL pick.
There are only eight more weeks of NFL regular season games, which means that there are only eight more truly great Sundays left in the entire year. That's a huge bummer. You know what's not a huge bummer? Picking NFL games. Let's do it.
Thursday Night Football's effort in Week Ten of the NFL is the Battle of Ohio between the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals. Just typing the phrase Battle of Ohio fills me with irreparable sadness.
There is no worse feeling than losing a standalone NFL game against the spread. As opposed to losing one of the 1 p.m. games, when there are about 19 other games to distract you from that loss, losing the Thursday, Sunday, and Monday night games force you to sit there and think about how dumb and bad you are. It…
I'm busy. Let's get this over with.
Yesterday, a judge in New Jersey granted the NCAA and major sports leagues a temporary restraining order to stop legal sports betting from happening in the state until arguments are heard from both sides in court. This is, objectively speaking, complete garbage.
Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning are both proficient at throwing footballs to people in the same color trying to catch them. This week's Thursday Night Football game is going to actually be fun! Let's break this bad boy down, yo.
It's an interesting time to be a sports betting enthusiast. New Jersey just legalized sports betting, even though sports leagues will sabotage that in a hurry, and Bill Simmons isn't picking NFL games anymore, apparently. But NFL games are still going on, and we're still here pickin' em. Let's get to work.
Favorites and the over have hit on Thursday Night Football at an incredible rate so far this season. Will that continue this week? Probably, yeah.
This week's Thursday night game was fun, because the first quarter was dominated by people complaining about how bad Thursday Night Football is, while the second half was marked by a lot of quiet assed haters. Let's pick some more football games.
Thursday Night Football is terrible. The football has been bad in each of the first five games, and it's probably never going to be good. But we're still going to watch, and gamble on it. So let's break this bad boy down.
Man, Christian Ponder is the worst. He took a smart pick in the Minnesota Vikings and just rewarded all of the square idiots out there by going down by 42 (!) points at one point in Minnesota's great big loss to Green Bay. Whatever. Let's pick some other football games!
