ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?

Non-Football-Karma-update below. 

Here is the preliminary updated and possibly final suicide pool picks for week one. You can still enter by emailing us at FBpoo12@gmail.com


FANTASY FOOTBALL HIGHLIGHTS
We had our draft earlier in the week and the class is beginning to show. Our draft included these players: QB: Peyton Manning; RBs Alfred Morris and Arian Foster; Wrs: Wes Welker and Antonio Brown; TE: Jared Cook; Kicker: Matt Prater; Def: Steelers and our sleeper rookie RB Shane Vereen at the flex spot (no known relation to former State Attorney candidate Rod Vereen) . The league scores 4 points per throwing TD and 1 point per 20 throwing or reception yards. With Manning lighting up the Ravens for 469 yards and 7 TDs, 2 to our WR Welker, and our kicker with 7 extra points, we head into full Sunday action with a very comfortable 81.6 points and our RBs haven't even taken the field yet. We are playing "Team Fiman" who is going to need a lot of Luck with Luck at QB, Martin at RB, and WRs Lance Moore, Cecil Shorts, Pierre Garcon, and TEs Jason Witten and Jimmy Graham, K Dan Bailey and Da Bears as his Def.

DOM currently has the "arrrgh" award for drafting sleeper Denver TE Julius Thomas but not starting him and losing that stellar two TD, 23 point FF performance. Better luck next week.

PICKS:
Remember our tried and true formula: In the first few weeks the public has not caught up to the trends of the new year and tend to bet based on last year's performances.

Cardinals at Rams: We like the over 42. We like the Chiefs as a road favorite (-4) over the dysfunctional Jaguars. Lay the 3 with the Bucs on the road over the J....E....T....S... and hold your nose and lay the 10 on the cheaters over the Bills. So in review, we are picking against three home dogs, which in the real world is a good way to go broke quick.

Enjoy your weekend. 

KARMA:
Rochus Misch, the bodyguard of Adolph Hitler, and the last survivor of the bunker where Hitler committed suicide on April 30th, 1946,  1945 ending the third reich, died in Berlin on Thursday. He was 96. To the end, Misch spoke glowingly of the man he termed "the boss".  If that was the end of the story, his death would be a footnote to the sordid history of nazi Germany. 
But the universe works in strange ways. 
Misch and his wife Gerda who died in 1997 had a daughter: Brigitta Jacob-Engelken, who learned from her maternal grandmother that her mother (married to Hitler's bodyguard) was Jewish. If that was the end of the story, the irony would notable. But Misch's daughter grew up to be an architect. She became estranged from her father and spent time on an Israeli kibbutz. Her specialty in her work in Germany is restoring local synagogues. 

Karma. Life finds a way, despite the darkness of evil.

Hitler died in 1945, not 1946 as posted.

"Florida has the arrogance of Notre Dame and the tradition of Wake Forest." ~ Dan Jenkins.

AP ace reporter Tim Reynolds quotes Florida OL Jonotthan Harrison: "I can't give it to Miami. It is on us."

The little Cardboard College from Coral Gables whipped the State's flagship school once again. And for all time, now that the Gator has given up for good.

Rumpole,

Not sure if you've heard about Matthew Credle. He is a young man who was allegedly struck another car while very drunk. While still under investigation pre-arrest, he made a YouTube video confessing to the crime. His lawyer says that he had no idea his client was going to do that.

If your client did that, what do you do?

Rumpole said...

It's a complicated legal maneuver.

Take a hammer, walk into his home, and quickly smash his computer, cell phone, and router and perhaps a few of his fingers for good measure.

Gator losers, you've lost the last 7 of 8 times you've played against Miami.

You gave us the win? Did you intercept yourselves in the red zone? You were trying hard to score every time you got in the red zone, you didn't give us anything, we stopped you.

Looking forward to seeing UF lose to UGA, USC, FSU, LSU.

UF UM
total offense 396 201
First Downs 22 10
Time possession 38:20 21:40
3rd down conv 6/15 1/11

Statistics don't matter, and a win is a win. But to say UM "whipped" UF is ridiculous. The game was lost because of turnovers and penalties. True, fumbles are caused by hard hits. But interceptions were as a result of stupid decisions by a mediocre quarterback. One less turnover, one average pass to a wide open receiver in the endzone and the headline reads "Gators Dominate Canes." The facts is, UM is not a great team. Neither are the Gators. Both will lose 2-3 other games. 10:50, in the wise words of The Wolf in "Pulp Fiction,": "Let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet."

Excuses are for losers. Miami won 7 of the last 8. No one cares about ifs and buts - people remember wins and losses. Florida took its ball and went home because they don't have the stomach to lose to Miami again and again.
