Out of the Blue

It's Thanksgiving here in the U.S., so happy holiday to all who are celebrating, and best wishes to all in the hope that you have reason to be thankful even if this is not celebrated where you are. Things are well underway here in the BlueTower, as the Chex Mix is mixed and the turkey is nearing perfection even as I type these words. I'm looking forward to spending time with the family, watching some football, and lapsing into a food-induced coma. We also have thanks to express, and most appropriate to this space, thanks to all of you for your support of this site over all these years.

Speaking of football, here are last week's results: Batman 12-1 (I don't think we can give credit for posting a Thursday winner on Sunday), Cutter 12-2, Jivaro 11-2 (skipped Eagles/Skins), mag and Blue 11-3, and Creston and Verno 10-4. Here are my picks for this week: I guess we'll have to see if posting so late means we just shouldn't count the early game: Texans, Cowboys, Patriots, Seahawks, Falcons, Bengals, Steelers, Titans, Broncos, Bears, Chargers, Saints, Rams, Giants, and Panthers.

Thankful Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Humbug 2.
Soccer Balls 2.

The Seahawks really aren't that great. They've won a few good games, but it takes a lot more than that before I pick someone to win on the road.

Yeah, as a die-hard, but realistic, Seahawks fan I see the Hawks as two different teams; a very good team at home who can beat anyone, and a very mediocre team on the road who can lose to anyone. Historically they've been really bad at 1:00 East Coast games although they're starting to turn that around (last year beating the Giant and Bears). A good defense and running game travel well though so I'm more optimistic than I used to be in games like this.
