MNF Pick, Week 3

Kansas City plus 2½ points? That's a no-brainer. Sure, Mile-High is always a factor, but so are Trent Green and Priest Holmes. Take KC over Denver. Insist on the points so you can laugh at the suckers later.

First Quarter Update: Fuck.

Halftime Update: Double fuck.

(That Clay Aiken's got a pretty good arm. Who knew?)

Third Quarter Update: Looks like we're going to need the greatest comeback in MNF history for those 2½ points to matter.

Final Score Update: Okay, so i'm 0 and 2. Denver was 0 and 2 before Monday Night, but i don't see you mocking them now. Just wait until next week.

Update to the Update: Crap, wrong again. Denver was 1-1.

Agreed, no-briner. After drafting Clarett in the third round, it's hard to believe that Shanahan can EVER find his ass with both hands.

The Rat never was a great coach, funny how having a hall of fame QB can make you look like an offensive genius.

Actually, the line is 3 at game time. The money line is +120/-140.

If you are so sure, why not bet the money line and forgo the points?

I'm sure, but not so sure as to do that, so I took the three.

You're pretty sure of yourself this time, Annie.
based on your track record .........

GODDAMMIT! LSU blew a three touchdown lead to loose to Tennesee in OT. God that sucs

I think USC could have beaten Kansas City tonight; Heck, even the Quarterbackless Wonders pf Strawberry Canyon might have been able to roll them.

Nice call, Annie. Don't give up your day job...

DOUBLE GODDAMN IT!! I was going to tape the LSU game, while I went to watch the Padres snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Hehhehe, it's ok though. Anyone ranked ahead of the Buckeyes needs to lose and get out of the way of destiny.

OSU? Rose Bowl?

Anni, where do you get your information???? The Broncos beat San Diego last week and were 1 and 1 going into last nights game. Now they are 2 and 1 and in control of the AFC West. I know its hard for a Raider fan to believe it but the Broncos are back and as long as the injury bug doesn't bite too hard, they are going to make a run!!!!

Crap. You are right.

: (

But of course, i could have meant that Denver was 0-2 at some unspecified point in the past, not necessarily this season. So there.

Go back to the law books. The pay's better and steadier.

The only thing that makes being a Broncos fan is the Broncos drinking game.

You get sloshed when they win and stay sober when they loose.

As long as AFC West teams loose to the Broncs, the rest is just fun to watch.

Re Clay Aiken, I especially enjoyed Kimmel's "instant replay."

Watch out what you say in your blog. The Welsh might be monitoring it now. (Not to be confused with Raquel Welch)
