Gadzooks! Got a lot on my plate today so here goes-- Week Six was really, really hard on me... but since my Boys won, I can take it in stride.

Now, for Week 7, here are my picks you can take to the bank:

Thursday Night Feetball is a real fowl... affair and the bird Bob Costas* will be knee deep as the Seahags notch up another win at the Red Byrds' expense

Sunday finds the Phins eating the Buffalopes' lunch

Da Bears see a UFO and shoot it down only to find out it is the Redskins' new politically correct... nickname

TCU North makes the Bankrupt Bozs pay the bill

Sorry, Allegra, your Texicans are going to get whipped by my Old Dallas... Texans and new hero, Big Chief Andy

Okay, okay, big! Your Pattycakes get a win against dem Jersey Jets

Chargers at Jags and again you have to ask?

I see the Yews geting Camshafted

Vick's Old Black Byrds sink the Buckin' Ears

I'm throwing Allegra a bone and picking her Old Earlers over the 69ers

Crabshack Joe gets the Stoolers back in the loser column

Though it pains me to say it, big's Packerwackers beat the Cleveland Brownskins

Mile High Manning comes home to Indy and leaves with all the Colts stump broken

Monday Night the Viqueens and Jersey Jints meet with one win between them and when the evening is over, Pharmboy will be tickled pink

Now, my Boys will be visiting the Iggles and they will be returning home... with a victory

*You don't know Bob Costas! post 63

BTW The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their Tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep.

Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, "Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?"

The Lone Ranger replies, "I see millions of stars."

"What that tell you?" asked Tonto.

The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, "Astronomically speaking... it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter Past three in the morning. Theologically, the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorological, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow." After a beat, he adds, "What's it tell you, Tonto?"

Tonto sat up and looked down. "It tell me... someone stole the tent.

Re: und The Queens... over the Midgets

Hi, Mr. Peabody... where are we going today?

To the future, Sherman... to see the New York Giants break their losing streak.

Okay, I've set the Wayback Machine for Monday Night... when the Vikings play the Giants.

No, Sherman, set the date... for 15 years in the future--

Gee, Mr. Peabody, if the Giants are that bad... how will they finally win a game 15 years in the future?

Look there and see how 15 years in the future, Coach Coughlin... will direct Eli Manning to win a game--

Well, Mr. Peabody, that is sure a new wrinkle... on the Shotgun Spread!

In the future, Sherman, the Giants will call it... the M-1 Carbine Spread--

Hey, I report... you decide--

If the Giants lose Monday night, Coughlin’s gone. If they win, he’s still gone at the end of the season.

Fascinating read: Want to be able to buy stock in your favorite NFL player. Soon you can

It'll be fascinating to see Romo's stock collapse as he throws yet another game losing INT..now, instead of cussing at the TV..fans can call their broker and scream SELL

Well, we lost... a good 'en two days ago... and old Bum always had something good to say--

Once when Earl Campbell... wasn't able to finish a 1-mile conditioning run, Bum said, "Well, when it's 1st and a mile... I won't give it to him."

"Coaching is not how much you know. It's how much... you can get players to do."

"The harder we played... the behinder we got."

Ya know, Sid Gillman once tell me that breaking down film was better than sex. I replied, "Sid... you must not be doing it right."

Of course, Allegra's favorite is this: "Now tell, me, son, ain't this much better... than kissing Jerry' ass?"

To Bum, he never lost a game... time just ran out--

Giants have a good chance to get in the ‘W’ column against the Vikes. I’ll take Eli over Ponder, Freeman, or Cassell.

Picking the Lions is hardly an upset and this is now after the Bengals have already scored, Detroit should still take this.

experts? none of them experts is beating me @ 67-25 ... and I ain’t no expert. Casual at best.

I avoided the early season brainwashing that KC MIA and BUFF were no good ... and avoided a lot of those losses. The remainder of the season, Golic will trounce me unless he picks too many upsets.

I usually read the CBS picks always.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/features/writers/expert/picks/against-the-spread/7

The whole CBS sports site is fairly good, we get their radio too though I did write them once and urged them not to show leftist views and they responded to me.

Anyway, this is about sports not politics.

Kind of lost enthusiasm for the Women’s team after I learned Wambach was a carpet-muncher (not that it came as a great shock)

That's too bad about Wambach and not surprising, I've long liked Alex Morgan (pictured above), how about that name but she and a few others are fun to watch. Also, that one WNT player came out as gay too, we don't need to know that and I don't like all those body issues per, I think they both do it, ESPN and Sports Illustrated. But after Hope Solo etc. I think Alex Morgan gives me some hope for the lady in the sport. England, France too are easy on the eye, Norway, Canada too.. but I'm viewing this as merely a sidelight to the NFL games today. I don't know the women's team as well as I should, some others look very nice as well. Surprised Wambach is still out there to be honest.

Glad the Fox game still calls them Redskins, wouldn’t surprise me if some pc network like NBC does like some others (some newspaper in Virginia) have and refuse to use that term, that’d be maddening.

Tobin Heath is another cutie for the USA team, I won’t plaster photos all over but yes she is too. The US National Woman’s Team member who came out as lesbian was Megyn Rapinoe, see she is still listed as being on the squad but have not seen her out there... I’m not even positive that USA game is live but I think it is.

GVDL-1111!!! Good thing my Bears have a bye, their defense looks like Normandy beach. How goes your groin feel Bender? Cutler’s hurts. My Irma huts.

Jets win in OT even though Gronk is back, Brady 0 TDs again, Jets are so inconsistent. Boys beat the birds 3rd string QB. Bills beat the Dolphins on the road with a QB I’ve never heard of.

At least the Bengals beat the mewing kittens.

I’m just 5-4 if you were wondering, Mauro.
