They hadn't yet heard of cell phones, the internet, social media, Google, 24hr news or a defenseless receiver..... The Golden Age indeed. 

Also not heard of? Invisalign... image.png.81b30314404bfbd9f133a32f6115d494.png

AAAAAAAAAAAnnnnnnnnnnnd the Pats had it all the way...

No strikes this week...

 

On to Week 10 !!!

Almost, but the Jets pulled defeat from the Jaws of victory, as you would expect them to do.  Just hope the Browns game with them is not that close. 

Cowboys did the same thing.

https://sports.yahoo.com/someone-wagered-99-000-packers-213707746.html

Someone wagered $99,000 on the Packers to beat the Jaguars, at -1100 odds

The Packers seem to be a sure thing this weekend. At least one bettor thinks so.

According to David Purdum of ESPN.com, someone placed a $99,000 wager on the Packers to beat the Jaguars with the William Hill sports book in Nevada. At odds of -1100, the bet will pay a mere $9,000 if the Packers win.

It could be the easiest $9,000 that the bettor ever makes. Or it could be a lesson well learned that, as a wise man has said repeatedly, “That’s why they play the games.”

The weather could be a factor on Sunday, with a high of 44 degrees, ran in the forecast, sustained winds in the range of 25 miles per hour, and gusts into the mid-30s. There’s also a chance that the Packers will pick Sunday to be one of those days when they just don’t have it.

It’s obviously unlikely, as the odds indicate. Still, if the game ends within eight points or so, the $9,000 arguably won’t be worth whatever anxiety the bettor will have experienced. And if the Jaguars somehow win, well, there goes money that the bettor could have done plenty of good with.

But in America the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness includes the ability to make bad decisions. Come Sunday, we’ll see if this is one of them. Win or lose, it already sort of feels like it is.

 

^ What could possibly go wrong?

Give the man his $9k... and some clean underwear...

No strikes again this week... although Packer-pickers had to be plenty nervous. Slightly less so for the NOLA guy and a relative cakewalk for LVR.

... and I'm out... thanks, Vikes!

On a positive note... Week 11 is as deep  as I've ever gone.

 

Vikes also gave three others their 1st strike.

 

5 are left...

4 with one strike...

1 unblemished...

At least it was a good way to go out with a good pick.... Hasta la vista, baby.
