Out of the Blue

Showtime's Beat the Insiders website is finally operating, so as planned Batman set up a league that will keep track of the results for those of us matching wits at picking NFL games this season. Opening night is tomorrow night, and I'll post another reminder, but hurry if you want to participate (it's all free). Bats has been busy, as he also set up a Blue's News GTA5 Crew on the Rockstar Games Social Club, so those planning on being a friend of ours can sign up there.

Got my picks in, toot toot. I hope you all bet on the Jets!

Even a Jets fan wouldn't bet on the Jets if they wanted to win.

Free gift at every Jets home game this year is an official paper bag with eyeholes.

In other news, FFXIV sold 185,000 copies in Japan alone its first week of release. They just had to double server capacity. It's doing pretty well: News

I was thinking of giving it a try once they have the capacity issues sorted out aka, digital sales re-enabled. Sounds like it could be fun for a bit.

Jets article on Deadspin: Why Your Team Sucks 2013: New York Jets

Best letter:

The Butt Fumble changed my involvement as a fan. Before, I was disheartened, disappointed, let down by the hope of two AFC championship appearances. Now, I'm reinvigorated, excited to see how terrible this season will be. It's like reading about Amanda Bynes, or seeing Donald Trump get elected President. It's better than actual sports. It's a full-fledged rebellion against sanity and rationality.

One day, when the dying vestiges of our culture raise up a flag in surrender to the greater forces of the future, I hope that flag has Mark Sanchez colliding into another man's butt on it.

So, fifteen years ago there was sports (football and basketball) and gaming. Then came marriage and kids, and the wife said: Pick two out of three. So sports went.

On the other hand the Ravens managed to surprised many times last season, I think 3/4 of my bad picks last year were picking their opposition.

Including the Superbowl.

I think I was the only one to pick the Ravens. *smug look*

I am in. Some very good games to start the season. My hardest pick was the Giants v Cowboys, although a close second would be the 49er/Packers game.

Broncos and Ravens was my hardest pick this week surprisingly despite several other match ups that could go either way. Ravens have lost some key players in the offseason while the Broncos picked up Welker who is expected to perform well with Manning. On the other hand the Ravens managed to surprised many times last season, I think 3/4 of my bad picks last year were picking their opposition. Oh well time to repeat past mistakes

Even a Jets fan wouldn't bet on the Jets if they wanted to win.

I'm in.....Put my picks together. I'm sure you guys will out-pace me over the season, so I doubt I'll be in every week.

It's cool, when you don't make a pick on a game the expert you selected during registration makes the pick for you.

The interface leaves something to be desired... no indication that you have picked all the games.

Edit: Ahh, there it is near the top -- faded. 16 of 16.
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
