Out of the Blue

Well, last week I did the thing I told myself I wouldn't, and made a few extra-daring NFL picks in our Beat the Insiders league to increase the chances of some wild comeback. How did that work out for me? Well, I thought my picks did poorly when I was playing it straight, but my attempt to hit some longshots was even worse. I'll have to pull off a pretty spectacular slate of bad picks this week to manage to slide into dead last place, but I think I've proven that this season I'm up to the task. It's actually also possible for me to end up in first place, though this requires me going 16-0 this week and the four players tied for first all going 0-16, so I don't think I'll bother clearing a space for the championship trophy just yet.

Except that is "misfortune" really the right word here? Makes them sound blameless. So much of this could have been avoided with a smidge of careful thought.

Well, my original wording was "stupidity", but the second link included a few people that had genuine accidents (getting hit in the crotch with a baseball bat) so I decided to tone it down slightly...

But yeah, most of these seem self inflicted.


Yeah, I do feel for the genuine accidents

Shoot the Moon, Blue! See if you can go 0-16. That's a type of victory!

Ah, found it! Little over a year ago...

I have an odd fascination with stuff like this. Part of it squeamishness, and part of it is laughing at other peoples misfortune.

What Did We Get Stuck In Our Rectums This Year?

I suppose the thing that sticks out at me (heh) is that humans do some messed up stuff.

Also, the comments on that article are priceless.

Yeah, this is bay far my worst season for picks in a long time. It's been a pretty whacky season all and all.

You know, when you drive the wrong way down a one-way street, accidents are bound to happen.
