Out of the Blue

I thought I was frustrated with our football picks league before, but that's nothing compared with how upset I am with myself after yesterday. I mentioned someone sending me the picks their computer program was generating, and last week I changed one pick last week because of it, which turned out to be a winner. Well, this week the computer and I disagreed on four picks, and still being in the frame of mind that I was doing poorly, I changed three of my picks as a result: I kept the Giants to beat the Eagles, but decided to take the computer's advice on three games, changing my picks on Dallas, Atlanta, and Miami. If I'd stuck with my original choices I would have only lost on the Steelers so far, and would be 11-1, but by changing, I am 8-4. The silliest part is that I just got caught up in how the computer would do, but had those teams all won, I would not be proud since it would have been the outside help succeeding, so letting the computer influence me was sort of a lose/lose scenario. Lesson learned. And thus Mr. Loser laments.

I have to add my name to Verno and Mr. Tact as the Giants game was my only miss of the week.

Victory needs no explanation; defeat allows none.
