I heart football. I super heart college football. (I'm still shocked that GA Tech is in Atlanta...what the, nobody told me!)
Right now I am not liking the NFL one bit.
Is it me, or does it seem like all this seasons' games are rigged, so far?
It's only week 3.
And I have a bone to pick.
I am in a football pool, in a desperate attempt to win some cash. Just kidding, I've been part of one since the job before the job I just lost. It's been going on for about three years.
The first year I sucked. The second year was so-so. Last year, I kicked ass and ended up with $300.
Clap for me.
This year when asked if I was in, I thought about it and was leaning towards a no. You know because I have no job and it's $50 to join the pool.
But then I had a dream that Eli and The Giants would go all the way this year. I don't know what that was about especially since I like my dreams to involve Peyton. Don't get me started. He has some sort of hotness to him.
After the dream, I joined in. To save some cash, I went in with a partner.
When I want to vote against Dallas, he is all for Dallas.
Hey, I just live here, I don't have to like that team at all.
I had to sit him down for a one on one talk and let him in on my strategy and how lucky he is that I pulled him into this pool to begin with.
This week I was eating my words.
What the hell happened to the teams this week? Was it because I wasn't able to give my full attention to any of them (due to being in Atlanta, half awake on Sunday)?
Where were the team players? Sick? There is no sick in football and it's week 3.
Where there was a win for some teams, it should have been a loss.
Yeah, I'm looking directly at The Patriots. What? The? Ball?
I was so disappointed...and then even more so last night.
Don't get me wrong I am so happy The Saints won, really, I am. It was a given win. Shoot, they could have been as bad as the Texans and still won that game. If anything, nobody should have bet against them...
but we did.
Partner convinced me that Atlanta was having a good run, thus far.
I argued that it was the first game back in the SuperDome and the morale would be out the roof, if anything...come, on.
We bickered back and forth. Since it is half his money and the fact that I was rendevousing in Atlanta this past weekend...I agreed.
I still don't know why or how or why.
We are dead last in the pool.
Who would vote against that game? Who? Who?
