The Return Of annika's MNF Pick

Dallas is favored by 5½ points. i'd take Dallas minus the points because they plan to honor Troy, Michael and Emmitt tonight. The Cowboys should be up for this home game and besides, the Redskins aren't going anywhere this year.

Unrelated football note: L.A. has been without a football team for what, ten years now? New Orleans doesn't even exist, but they have a football team. How embarrassing is that.

Update: Amy was at the game!

That's a no-brainer. What about the Nawlins game? It's a double header.

I'd rather have no team than have the Raiders.

The average Raider fan comes on a Harley Hawg, has at least three tattoos, has served at leat 30 days in one jail or another...

And, that's just the women.

My own team the Texans sucked it up so much that they just fired their off. coordinator after two games!
Guess I can still be a cowboys fan.

I'll have to take Dallas, because the Big Tuna is going to get them into the playoffs.

We have a local character in San Diego by the name of "King" Stahlman. He's in bail bonds. Last time we had the Superbowl down here, the local newsguys asked him at playoff time who he'd like to see in the game. His reply? "Oakland, they're good for business".

Pre-911 I went to a Chargers/Raiders game where everyone was patted down before entry. Now of course the minimum wage shitheads do it to everyone, but in those days it was an afront.

My picks are over at my site. I'm 18-10 so far this year against the spread. Not bad eh?

Oh, and I took Dallas and gave 6.

Sky masterson says "My Daddy told me that if a guy offers to bet you that he can make the Jack of Spades jump out of a brand new, unopened pack of cards and spit cider in your eye, don't bet him; sure as Hell you are going to get cider in your eye".

That's how Dallas looked tonight. On paper, at home, they should have been at least 13 point favorites, but the bookies know more than you guys. Obviously.

I hope the cider didn't sting too much.

By the way, Annie, see if you can figure out who the President of the Los Angeles Memeorial Coliseum Commission was the year that the Raiders left and went back to Oakland.

Might this person be a district representative of the State Bar Board of Governors?

Posted by: annika on Sep. 19, 2005

Might even be Vice President.

My strategy will now be to look at annika's pick and go the other way. Heh.

Dallas was winning
for fifty-six minutes, babe!
Gibbs is a genius!

Dallas does a Texas size CHOKE.

Dallas didn't put them away in the 3rd qtr when they should have. I predict that the long ball comes at Dallas all year.

As a native of Louisiana, I humbly offer you the New Orleans Saints. You can have em!
