SUNDAY WEEK ONE RECAP

Someone once said "it ain't braggin if you can do it." or something like that. 

We started the first Sunday up 125 by virtue of the Giants and under this past Thursday.

J..E...T..S..-3 over Fins. (+150)
Bills over Seahawks. (+100)
Upset special of the week, month, and maybe the year: Titans and the money line to beat the Jags outright. And wouldn't you know it, the Titans went out and did just that. We bet 50 to win 67.50

The surprising Bears pounded the lackluster Colts last night in the biggest upset of the week. We'll take the  -110 for our only loss of the season so far. 

+322.50 for the week and +207.50 for Sunday.   5-1  for the week in picks. Not bad.  We'll take that every week to pay for the Condo in Sun Valley, Idaho.

We're not going to have very many Sundays with such a large win, but we surely will enjoy this one.

SUICIDE IS PAINLESS....Unless you pick the Chargers.
A switch in time...saves Rick Freedman.  Rick sent us an email at 12:29 PM on Sunday switching from the Chargers to the Patriots. The Chargers lost on the last play of the game. The Patriots, who lost Tom Terrific, managed to squeak out a 17-10 win, keeping Rick and David Markus and Miguel de la Over in the game. 

Must say goodbye to Marshall Dore Louis. Our heart was with you and the your Fins pick, but alas, they came up just a bit short on the last play of the game.  The Public Pretender went down with the Bungles,  but everyone else survives to play another week. 

Rumpole's Eagles squeaked out a 99-0 (or something like that) win over the Rams. With Brady out, the Patriots now become a team you have to use carefully. They play the Jets next week, and I like Favre's chances to give them the old Mangini. 

We started with 14, and now there are 12. 

 Hurricane Ike is hitting the coast of Cuba Monday morning  and is forecast to run the length of the Island and leave Tuesday. Ike is now forecast to MISS THE KEYS, which is nice for our neighbors to the South, and then head into the Gulf, which is not nice for the Gulf states. With the way this town was getting whipped into a frenzy Friday, we sympathize with the citizens of New Orleans who may be uprooted again later this week. It could easily be us in Miami preparing for a big hit. And no way around it, one day it will be us again.  

Sorry to end on such a downer. Have a good Monday.

RUMPOLE- followed your picks, including the dolphins under and the JETS. Made 5 K. Gonna blow it on the FIU chippy and her friend on SoBe this coming weekend. This is better than winning the lottery. (the two girls, not your football tips, which I do appreciate. )

Rump--I liked your advice on the Bears-Indy game so much that I drained my office trust account and wagered it all on the Colts. What should I do when my clients and the Bar come after me?

Miami has the Dolphins
A mediocre football team
They take the ball from goal to goal
but mostly get stopped in between

They're in the air
they're on the ground
but usually they're three and out

and when you say Miami
Huizengia starts to pout'
