To borrow a phrase, are you ready for some football?   I'm excited.  Let me just say that anyone can join us, this is totally free - just choose which team you think will win, at the end of each week, I'll post the winners and we can see how many we got right.  Week 1 begins on Thursday, Sept 8, and there are two Monday night games this week.  I'll get the picks posted each week as soon as possible, and will have the results by Wed. at the latest.  Oh, by the way, I'm still on baseball time, so if I get a team name wrong, for example, MLB name - Pittsburgh Pirates instead of NFL name - Pittsburgh Steelers, please forgive me!

Good Luck everyone!

I feel like I should give an Academy Award Speech.  I just would like to thank my Instincts for helping me pick the right team.

Ugh! I stunk.  Hope I do better next time.  Hope Giants do better next time or it's going to be a very long year.
