Ouch. My picks below were terrible! I got about 50% right (or wrong if you want to be a jerk about it.) I guess NFL betting may not be for me, but here is the rest of the week in review (covering only the stuff I care about):
My first mistake came when I started Phillip Rivers over Drew Brees in Fantasy Football. Ouch, Brees had arguably the best week of any QB (save Favre) and Rivers tried to let the Raiders win their second game of the week (that seems like the only way the Raiders will win games is if the other team allows them to get the W.)
The Bears beat the Philadelpia Eagles on the Sunday Night Game of the Week. To be honest, I watched the last two minutes of the game because I had a show in Walnut Creek during the game. Coincidentally (or not if you're superstisious) the Bears are 2-0 on days when they play on Sunday Night Football. They are also 2-0 when I play at Pyramid in Walnut Creek during the game and 2-0 when I wear a particular long sleeve t-shirt. They are 0-2 when I watch the game or put more effort into following the results, yet when my effort is going towards entertaining- they win. Well, I guess I need to put as much focus on the Bears as I do the Tyra Show, and they'll play better.
The Redskins upset the Cowboys in Dallas. They played a great game and I was especially impressed with the Redskins defense (besides their Prevent defense at the end of the First Half.) Great win. The NFC East is the toughest division in football.
Current undefeated teams left: Titans, Ravens, Giants and Bills. Odds of any of those teams winning the Super Bowl: 100 to 1
I'm totally spent. I played the fore mentioned show in Walnut Creek (4 hours), packed up my stuff, drove back up to Sac, but on the way stopped at the G Street Pub in Davis to play a quick set. I managed to squeeze in two shows in a matter of 6 hours. I'm either nuts, or I really like playing music- the answer is obvious isn't it? It's both.
