Cynthia, which baseball team do you root for?  Cubs?  White Sox?

Thanks guys, I was pleasantly surprised that the back-ups played so well.   It was the first Carolina game I  watched in a long time that wasn't just sport highlights and I have to say that Cam Newton was not what I expected.  And I'm not even talking about his play because all teams have bad games.  I just expected to see this high spirited, positive kid and I didn't.  I never even saw him interact with his own team.

Joy thx about the avatar:) Yeah it puts me in a good mood when I see it. White Sox all the way!

Bettyjean I was glad I got to see a Panthers game too. Just to see what all the hype is about Cam (Superman) Newton. Guess it didn't work so well for him last nite. But my opponent in fantasy had Newton & Smith & don't think he did so well points wise.

ETA: Bettyjean have u seen this Chunky Soup commercial yet w/Victor Cruz? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDRxDEOgc8I&feature=youtu.be 

I think it's cute:)

So sorry for your Pats loss Joy... crazy games this year for sure.   My picks are getting worse and worse... I don't even think the bookies in Vegas are having it easy this season.  Stayed up to watch last night's game and never witnessed such a bizarre ending. 

A big congrats to Cindy and Alex on your team wins.

The only thing I can say about the games this past week is that I certainly made some horrible picks, and the replacement refs made quite a pigs breakfast out of most of the games.  I understand Roger Goudell (sp?) is going to address the last call that gave the Seahawks the game on MNF.  Personally, I have no idea how they could even make a call with half the football teams all jumping up at once to grab the ball.  Poor Green Bay.

Thanks Bettyjean:) I also watched the end of the MNF game & must say I was glad the Seahawks won. But between my football buddies I think GB had the ball in the end zone.  Shhhh.

Joy I think I finished 9-7 this week. Thx for the extra win:) LOL.

I am not having a good season this year.  It reflects the real NFL Season.  Congrats to Cynthia and Betty Jean.

Alex, I'm only one win ahead of you - we can commiserate together.  Hopefully week 4 will be the charm.  Except I want the Patriots to beat your Bills of course.  :)

Thanks Alex! Your picks will get better as the season goes on or should I say once the real ref's come back:) LOL.

Cyn - I feel exactly the same way about the Seahawk game (I picked Seattle to win).  Horrible call, but rather see it happen to GB than Seattle.  And now that refs are back, GB will probably never see a bad call again (just like last year). lol.
