Editor's Note--And now there's this:
Yep. All cleaned up. Congrats to those who took the journey of "Movember", had some fun with the "bristling black moustaches", and raised money for a good cause. Speaking of money, we lost some last week with the clunker week of 2016. We won't dwell on the past. We will look to the future. And the future is now the present. Go ahead Big D.--R.B.
Grrrrrr. Animal spirits indeed. None of this crapola (technical term) again. Now here are 3 college and 3 pro selections.
We got beat by Washington before, but we don't think they get us this time. 7.5 points when a 11-1 team plays a 10-2 sounds like too many. COLORADO also 5-0 vs the math on the road. Close Pac-12 Championship game, handsomes. El Take-o.
We've won a few times with OKLAHOMA STATE and we think that streak continues. Two 9-2 teams and the line is 11?!? What planet are we on? We take with the COWBOYS at archrival Oklahoma.
Now we have a very good Clemson team looking to make the 4 team playoff. Again this a CHAMPIONSHIP game. The other team? VIRGINIA TECH, not a slouch. What do they get? 10 points. That's enough for us. And you too. Take the HOKIES.
On Sunday, "Sexy Rexy" Ryan and his offensive stars head to Oakland! That's right. Offensive stars. NOT defensive stars for Buffalo. Oakland? They got offensive stars too. The stars have aligned. You don't scare us with 49.5 points bookie bob. OVER in Oaktown.
The WASHINGTON REDSKINS have been berry berry guuu. The Arizona Cards? Not so much. The sneaaaaaaaaaky 2.5 points is given to the 'SKINS in Arizona. If you are given, we are takin with this covering machine 8 of 9 covers baby. SKINS!
Finally, the Gmen and Pittsburgh battle it out. The Gmen have been winning. A lot. Why? Not what you might think pal. DEEEFENSE. Pittsburgh may have righted their season. How? You got it handsomes. DEEEEFENSE. The total in windy Pittsburgh? 48.5. Too many, friend. Tooooo many. UNDER!
So the spirited recap: COLORADO+7.5 vs washington, OKLAHOMA STATE+11 at oklahoma, VIRGINIA TECH+10 vs Clemson, Sunday: OVER 49.5 Oakland/Buffalo, WASHINGTON+2.5 at Arizona, and UNDER 48.5 NY Giants/Pittsburgh.
The first line of this song is "Begin the day with a friendly voice"......um, we have NOT been doing that this week. Spirit my foot. Here is to beginning Sunday and Monday with friendly voices, and an unclosable wallet. Cheers. Good luck and god bless.
