MNF DOLPHINS EDITION

First the bad news: Suicide deaths include Colby (and now we don't have to deal with that headache anymore) and Peter Sauter. Long time "pooler" Dan Lurvey really did commit suicide by picking the Bills over the Jets. BTDT stayed alive with the Jets, as did Nick Basso. Michael Feiler, still feeling lucky with his last minute pick of the Bruins last week, kept afloat with the Saints. 11 players remain heading into the second month of the season.

Our first losing week of the year, and it was a bad one. You know it's going to be bad when you cancel the only bet that would end up having won- the over in the Cleveland/Cincy game.

We went o-2 yesterday, bringing our season total to 7-6, and we lost 660, bringing our total down to a meager 245 Huizengas. And to make matters even worse, we lost out bet with Markus, and that standing is now Rumpole 2-2, Markus 2-1-1.

Monday night is get even night.
There is no way the Dolphins should lose this game. Furthermore, if they do lose it, they will have lost to the two division rivals at home in consecutive weeks. On that basis alone you can kiss the season goodbye.

The over/under is 49. Despite the Cheaters high powered offense, the Fins, Brandon Marshall not withstanding, don't have the firepower to run with them. Furthermore, we like the Fins D, and we expect the Fins to come out running and try and slow the game down. The more minutes the offense has the ball, the less time pretty boy Brady has to throw it to bad boy Moss.
Under 49 for 400. We also like the Fins -1, but instead of making that bet outright, we're going to parlay 300 under 49 and Dolphins -1.
Remember that a parlay pays 13-5.

Go Fins!!!!

Mr. Rumpole.

Thank you for alerting your many readers that I am not involved in your "suicide pool." While I understand that these pools are for "enjoyment only", you must understand that some participating under my name gives the appearance of impropriety that I am involved in an illegal gambling enterprise. I am not, and I do not endorse any participation in illegal behavior.

Thank you for allowing me to get my point across.

Former Judge J. Colby.

Rump- here at the game (thought I saw you in a luxury box chatting up J-L0. Was that you?) enjoyed the hospitality of the real Jay White tailgate.

Going to cheer on the dolphins for a home town win.

When can we meet?

LOL. Was that really Colby?

Suicide pools are not illegal when no money is exchanged or prizes given. Sheesh.

How is a pool that involves no money or things of value illegal? Don't want him deciding joa motions.
