When we last left LeBron James doubter and Mike Golic cage match opponent Bill Simmons, he was putting his picks in a sidebar. They didn't turn out terribly, as his 7-6 record in Week Nine was equal to mine. Let's see what he's got for us this week.
When we last left Grantland Basketball Hour star and 30 For 30 honcho Bill Simmons, he had a gambling epiphany. Instead of just looking at win/loss records, he was going to get it together and make good NFL picks. This epiphany didn't appear to help him in Week Eight, where he went 5-10 against the spread.
I've gotta be honest here, and say that Bill Simmons' suspension earning comments about Roger Goodell and the NFL were pretty darn cool. They earned him a lot of points with a lot of people who aren't huge fans of his (like me!). How long can he keep us from actively despising him? Let's find out.
Where in the damn hell is the Friday NFL picks column? Just where the hell is it? Don't come at me with this Barnwell skunkweed oregano shit, man. The suspension is over, man, I need that good Simmons shit, the freshest NFL picks weed. I pay my mortgage on Simmons picks! Jesus fucking Christ where are the…
When we last left NBA Countdown's own Bill Simmons, he was advising us all to take home underdogs at all costs, then immediately ignoring that very advice. Will he change his ways and actually do smart things this week? Let's find out by delving into his picks.
Today, I was busy basking in the fact that football is back and that I'm on pace to go 256-0 on my regular season picks after last night's Seahawks win over Green Bay. That basking ended when I saw today's Bill Simmons picks column.
When we last left playoff suggestion box creator and Los Angeles Clippers season ticket holder Bill Simmons, he was telling us what a crapshoot the NFL playoffs are. What wisdom will he impart on us this week? Let's find out.
When we last left ESPN demigod and Malcolm Gladwell fan club president Bill Simmons, he was really making an effort to not publicize his NFL picks, picks that ended the season 32 (!) games below .500. Now that the playoffs have started, he's back on the wagon. Let's read, shall we?
When we last left Bill Simmons, the guy who singlehandedly made NBA Countdown the whitest show on television since Saved By The Bell, he was changing the rules to fantasy football, missing the Nick Foles bandwagon, and totes reverse jinxing the Patriots because jinxes are a real thing.
When we last left NBA Countdown host/Matthew McConaughey career appraisal artist Bill Simmons, he gave us his Week Eight picks, which finished with a record of 6-7. This week, he's in the middle of coming down from his Red Sox World Series high and starting the season on NBA Countdown, so he's given us a Cliff's Notes…
Bill Simmons is having a rough year in his NFL picks. His pop culture references game, however, is as on point as its ever been. Of course, by on point, I mean that I want to punch him in the Adam's Apple every time he makes a stupid pop culture reference. Either way, he's blended both his crappy NFL picks and oh so…
Earlier, I discussed the struggles of Bill Simmons and Colin Cowherd in their NFL picks this season, and got a request from commenter NotMyFirstRo-Day-O to compare their failures to the track record of funny human/Breaking Bad enthusiast Norm MacDonald. Ro-Day-O's request was as follows:
Bill Simmons love reliving the glory days of his trips to Vegas with Hirschy, House, Jack-O and whoever the hell else puts up with him because he's famous. Hopefully, though, he's stayed far away from the place this NFL season, as he is having just a brutal year of picking games against the spread.
