Hey there folks, well my craptastic season continues (hey at least I got more right than wrong last week) so I'm trying a brand new strategy. If a game is too close to call and I think something may happen one way, I'm going to go the opposite.
For example, our game tonight. I don't expect the Bucs to win, but I think they have a shot at it. I think it will be a close game that the Bucs would find a way to blow. My pick would normally be Atlanta but using this philosophy, I'm going with the Bucs.
It was either this or let my dog pick games - and that's not off the table for Week 10.
Last Week: 7-5 58% Upset Specials: 1-2 33%
Season: 65-53 55% Upset Specials: 8-12 40%
Upset Special #1 Buccaneers 27, Falcons 24 - See above. BTW, congrats to Johnny Lynch for his induction into the Ring of Honor. I don't know if he'd be able to play in the modern NFL but back in the day, he was the man!
Raiders 30, Broncos 24 - Usually, I'd pick Denver here. They're the champs and while Oakland is very good, I'm not sure if I'm fully a believer - plus they're Buc-like at home. So obviously, I have to go with the Raiders thanks to this philosophy. (Watch this be the week I would gone perfect if I stayed with the old way of picking games).
Speaking of - even if you can't stand either candidate for President, please get out there and vote. There are countries throughout the world that would give anything to have this opportunity and you're not just voting for a President, but senate/congress and important local issues that can have effect on millions of people.
Don't be silent. Don't sit out. Do your civic duty as an American citizen (living or dead).
