NFL WEEK 10 2010

Good Miami Dolphins-Chad Pennington -Football Sunday!

It's a beautiful day and the Dolphins have a new starter at QB.
Fun fact: two players making their first start for their teams today in Miami -Chad Pennington and Randy Moss- both played college football at Marshall.

Mr. Markus (5-3-1) must be warily eyeing the calendar and beginning to note in his epic battle versus Rumpole (7-2) that he's down by two in the win column and before he knows it, time will be running out. But not yet. And we have our lead to protect.

A couple of intriguing games today but we're going with the game tomorrow night versus DOM: Michael Vick and his Eagles in DC against the Redskins and their cardiovascularly deficient QB.
Eagles -3 at DC and we'll throw 500 Geno cheesesteaks on the boys from Philly for good measure.

Mr. Markus responds that the Dolphins are ready for a home win and Chad Pennington is just the guy to lead them to victory. DOM picks the Fins +1.

Bengals at Indy (-7) and Jets(-3) at Cleveland are the two other games we've pondered this week while sitting in court and listening to prosecutors drone on endlessly. Thank goodness for internet access in court, otherwise there would be nothing fun to do during a trial.

So lets have some fun. What kind? How about the kind when you're walking down Bourbon street at 2AM and see a scantily dressed woman giving you a wink and motioning you to join her at the bar kind of fun. *

In other words, sounds like it's time for a Teaser Bet!!!!

There are lots of different teaser options out there, including 6 point, 6.5 point, and 7 point teasers. But we will stick with the Vegas Teaser, which is six points, and the odds adjust on the number of teams you pick.

How about a three team teaser at 2 to 1? Indy teased from -7 to -1; Browns teased from +3 to +9; and Carolina at Tampa Bay from -7 to Tampa -1. And we'll risk 300 Po Boys on this extravaganza.

Rumpole's tip: The key to teaser bets is that you want to find a spread where you move the line past a key number, like 7 or 3. So when the Browns go from getting a field goal to past a TD and up to 9, it becomes attractive. Ditto when Indy goes from being a TD favorite to 1, which moves them below a field goal.

Anyway, enjoy the day, we wish we could be at Sun Life Stadium today rooting on Chad Pennington, but duty calls.

BOLO- sorry to let work intrude on a football Sunday, but CBS4 reports a BOLO and arrest warrant was issued for Coral Gables Police Lieutenant Edward Claughton for battery on a hotel employee in Marathon.

The morning mist burns off by noon
the stadium echos with fans anew
Chad Pennington starts his first game this season
now when we win we will have a reason
our hometown Dolphins scores we will be cheering
the Titans defense we are not fearing
as every few minutes this phrase will bring them a frown
THAT'S ANOTHER MIAMI DOLPHINS FIRST DOWN

come visit us in the 400 section as we lead one last cheer -Chad Henne Chad Henne at least your name is not benny- before we shout for Lousika Polite to fight fight fight.

Why no word on the awesome Heat victory last night? Be fair Rumpy!

Ugh. 5-1 one week and then 1-3 the next. But when the Cowboys have no heart and the Fins have little talent, that is what you get. Still keeping Three Fingers away as we're only down one unit. At least I'm 2-0 in the NBA.


Each bet for $500.
Houston +1
Detroit +2.5
Chicago +1
KC-1

2010 record 13-13 50.0% -$550

As someone who had the misfortune of running into Lt. Claughton some time ago, I competely understand how he might have been arrested for punching someone out. In addition to teh usual police qualities of bullying and imperiousness, Claughton is a seething caldron of anger and rudeness reday to bubble over at any given moment -- not that this will make any difference as I am sure that he will be given the slightest of taps on the hand and allowed to continue to abuse minorities and the young as he has done in the past.

Claughton's case is in Monroe County. Not sure how they'd handle it there because I don't practice in the Keys but, in Dade County, as a first offender, he'd get PTD with an anger control course, psych evaluation with treatment (if needed), restitution (if any), stay away order and, perhaps, some community service hours.

"...a seething caldron of anger and rudeness reday to bubble over at any given moment" Are you kidding me??? Not sure if he is still doing real police work but had a few cases with him a while back and he is about the most reasonable cop you will ever meet both on and off the job. Guess you lost a case with him...
