Out of the Blue

Definitely excited that the football season is here. And the weather even seems to be cooperating, as it's been hot and humid ever since my recent comment about how pleasant the summer has been (I try to shed my superstition about talking about things "jinxing" them, but events seem to conspire against me), but a cold front rolled in yesterday, bringing rain and relief, so things are now slightly more autumnal around here.

I don't really follow sports all that much but this year I decided to do some pigskin pick'ems with you guys. I know almost nothing about the teams so I was picking blindly pretty much. I am not sure how I got to the 75% by doing that...

Looks like Falcons winning will upset a LOT of picks...

Buscemi seems like a really cool guy.

Sheeeeit, if you looked like that guy, you'd HAVE TO be cool just to get any.

Yea def cool about the ripper. As usual article is misleading about the whole 'amateur uses DNA evidence' really means 'the world-renown forensic scientist the amateur hired, used DNA evidence'.
Amazing read.

I don't think it's that clickbaity. While the amateur didn't do the dna analysis, he did track down the relatives to get the samples. And he conceived the plan and put it into action. I think it's fine.

*ugh* Not going to be a good first week for me in the picks.

Yeah, it's looking like the logical picks are not doing what they're supposed to be doing. Oh welp, any given Sunday, right?

First couple of regular season games are the hardest to predict for sure, but that's what makes it fun. Plus it gives teams like the Lions and Dolphins a chance to make everyone think they're going to have a great year, only to crap out 4 games into the season.

You've got to be cruel to be kind...in the right measure.
