Up north, there's a hint of chill in the air, before the bright midday sun brings at least one more summer kissed day.
They're playing the finals at the US Open.
The baseball division races are heating up.
This may be our favourite day of the year!
And of course, the now world famous, earth shaking, smack talking, playa hatin, very frustratin, REGJB Survivor Pool.
Kenny Weisman, smack talking attorney extraordinaire, gourmand, stylish-well dressed- dapper, and defending co-champ, started it off with this email:
2:23 PM (18 hours ago)
The other defending co-champ, the quiet and dignified Dan Lurvey simply picked the Eagles. He lurks in the shadows this Dan Lurvey, and then he strikes and if you are a prosecutor, your case is over before you know it, and if you are a survivor pool contestant, he simply fades into the mist, and survives another week.
The picks: You can still join by emailing us a pick before the last games (Giants ve Lions, Chargers v. Cardinals) on Monday night begin. Fbpool13 at gmail.
J...E...T....S...Jets Jets Jets. Gang green -5 at home; A Rex Ryan Defense at home, against the worst team in the league (sorry JAX) starting a rookie QB. Could it be any easier?
Lions -3 at home against the NY Football Giants. Megatron and Stafford (who happen to be our starting WR and QB in the REGJB FF league). Need we say more? Lay the three against a Gints team with a new offense.
Steelers vs. Browns. Over 41. Brian Hoyer is a very underrated QB. He will put up some points. The Browns have a great D and may win this game, but it will be close, and the Steelers offense has enough firepower to make this a 28-27 game.
Titans at Chiefs. This line opened at KC -6 and fell to KC -3. Lots of Tennessee moving the line. But on opening day, take the favourite and some KC BBQ at home. KC -3.
Other thoughts: Stay away from Panthers game as Cam Newton status is uncertain; Cardinals at home -3 because until San Diego shows us something, they are a perennial disappointment; Matty Ryan has a big day with Falcons over Saints at home; Broncos at home vs. Colts- Colts played Broncos tough last year. Did the Super Bowl show that emperor Peyton has no clothes? Take the 6.5 and the Colts.
What a great day! Enjoy. See you in court tomorrow.
