Comeupance

I am not as smart as I think I am. Apparently, one good week in the NFL led me to believe that I would be able to pick the pockets of fortune on a regular basis. The three picks I posted last week, plus the teaser, all bombed out. Detroit twisted the knife by pretending to score in the final seconds, but even with replay, the points came off the board. Ugh. I'm still slightly up on the season, but what a kick in the pants.

I am now 4-4 on picks, and 0-1 on teasers. Is it even worth counting the teasers? Probably not. I'll certainly have to put more effort into my picks this week, since my sense of entitlement doesn't move the ball down the field.

I haven't yet seen my name pop up in the blogger tournament on PokerStars, but I am a patient man. Imagine being one of the poor souls who has to pull up all the blogs submitted; there is some serious depravity out there. I hope these brave workers are at peace with themselves and their gods.

I bought Tales From the Tiltboys and it is a hoot. I don't think I've laughed out loud reading a book since The Daily Show's America (The Book). There is also a little part of "there but for the grace of God go I." Bastard.

I don't remember the last time I blogged about playing poker, but I'm on a winning streak. I won the last two SNGs I played, although the last one was on Friday. I guess I need to get back to the tables in order to fund some sports betting. Speaking of--I haven't looked at the line yet, but I'm going to be looking closely at the Red River Shootout (Texas/Oklahoma). Oklahoma managed to hold off Kansas State, even without Adriaan Peterson, and OU is like Kryptonite to Mack Brown. With OU completely out of the AP poll, and Texas pounding the hapless victims in its path, the line could be generous.
