Sorry for the rushed post today…been a crazy week…and I’m on the injury report today. Google: Sole Skate
OAKLAND (-4) vs. CHICAGO
No Cutler…No Way…Oakland wins this one.
SEATTLE (-4) vs. WASHINGTON
Seattle. Skins suck.
NEW ENGLAND (-3) at PHILADELPHIA
New England all the way.
PITTSBURGH (-10) at KANSAS CITY
If you haven’t seen an episode of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, you’ve been living under a rock for the last seven years. The show is awesome…a bunch of Philly degenerates own a shitty bar and fight constantly. It’s awesome. The show’s creator, Rob McElhenny not only has an epic beard this season, but he’s also put on about 50 pounds for the sake of comedy. That’s dedication my friend.
Over one million mustaches have already been grown for Movember, the social good movement using upper lips to make a visual stand against cancer. Even Google appears to be jumping on board, dropping a nifty video effect into Google+ Hangouts that allows even those incapable of growing interesting facial hair to don their own hipster-tastic ‘stache for November.
I present to you, the Michelangelo of our generation…BOB ROSS!
And, he was Mormon!
Did you happen to notice who was 3-0 last week? Yeah, this guy. I do apologize for being so late with this week’s picks. I was a little under the weather this past week. I blame the removal of my beard for the weakening my immune system. Regardless, no more excuses and on to the picks!
BUFFALO (+2) at MIAMI
Take the Bills and the points here. Yes I was burned by them a few times already…and they’re on the road against an improving Miami team. Still going Buffalo, it’s time for them to turn it around. I think this game will be ugly and close, but Buffalo will win by a FG.
OAKLAND (-1.5) at MINNESOTA
The Raiders are way better than 1.5 point favorites against the Vikings. Yes it’s tough to play the Vikings at home with all those stupid Viking horns blowing, but they’re really bad this year. Palmer throws more TDs than interceptions this week and they win by 7.
DALLAS (-7) at WASHINGTON
I hate the Redskins. Have we established that? I’m picking against them every week. Rex Grossman couldn’t make a team in the CFL let alone the NFL. The Cowboys will win this game by 21 points. DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant run wild in this one. God I hate the Redskins. Cowboys minus 1000 in this one.
SAN FRANCISCO (-10) vs. ARIZONA
This is my stretch pick. The 49ers are great this year, they really are. I think they win this game. The John Skelton Cardinals find a way to get within 10 and hang around in this one. It won’t be pretty, but it will be closer than 10 points. Take the Cardinals and the points.
Dallas is my lock of the week, fairly confident in Oakland and Buffalo; pick Arizona with caution.

Great, so the NBA season is not happening…for those of you who are hoops fans out there, have a look at The Best Beards in the NBA, Position by Position Bleacher Report.
I have to say, Baron Davis does have an EPIC beard.
Would be terrifying to bump into this guy in some back alley in Lancaster, PA.

Er, I guess it’s the 11-12-11 edition, I’m late again, sue me.
DISCLAIMER: I’m not a bookie, prognosticator or professional gambler. These picks are for entertainment (and ridicule) only. If you are dumb enough to use this picks for an attempt at financial gain, you my friend have not been keeping up.
Week 10 in the NFL started with a surging Oakland Raiders team serving the San Diego Chargers their 4th straight loss. Ouch. I’m actually a closet SD fan (except for when they play the Steelers), but I have to say the Raiders are looking great. Carson Palmer looks like he’s time warped back to the Chad Johnson/Housch days and the young receivers on that team sparkle every week. Yeah I said sparkle. They might win 10 games next year.
On to the mediocrity that are my weekly picks!

JACKSONVILLE (+2) at INDIANAPOLIS
I’m thinking there are 1000 people in the stadium for this one. Probably less watching it on TV. Snooze fest in the making. Blaine Gabbert and Curtis Painter will probably throw 6 interceptions, MJD will rush for 100 and The COlts take one more step towards their heir apparent, Andrew Luck. Jags, powered by MJD, win this one by 7. Take them and the points all day long. LOCK OF THE WEEK.
PITTSBURGH (-3.5) at CINCINNATI
I’m doing it again, picking a Steelers game. This time, I’m picking the Steelers. Pittsburgh’s defense looked OK against Baltimore last week and should feast on Andy Dalton. Ike Taylor will keep A.J. Green out of the endzone and Cedric Benson will rush for less than 50 yards. I’m picking against the AFC North leading Bengals at home and going with the Steelers here.
MIAMI (-2.5) vs. WASHINGTON
I’m picking against the Redskins every week. Miami is dreadful, but not dreadful(er) as the Redskins. Everyone seems to think that Roy Helu is the second coming of Thurman Thomas but this week he’ll be bottled up and Beck will be forced to look for plays down the field. Translation: Beck throws 3 interceptions and the Dolphins find a way to squeak this one out. Look for Brandon Marshall to get 100 and a TD.
D’s record going into this week: 3-5
