Well, we always like to keep a count of how we did each week, but time hasn't been permitting me that opportunity. After going back and looking at everything, maybe it was best that I didn't look at the numbers of W's and L's with my picks. If you followed them and bet any money, you're probably in the unemployment line by now.
Week 1: 8-8
Not bad for starting out. Lots of teams and lots of unknowns on the first weekend of the season. Trends aren't setting in yet.
Week 2: 9-7
Hmmmm,...one game better, but it's always nice to jump ahead of the mendoza line. Let's see if we can make another incremental step forward next week.
Week 3: 6-10
What in the he77 is going on out there? I think my kids could have picked better than 6-10 by just picking their favorite colors. Daddy has definitely got to put them down and start paying attention to what's important (couldn't find the sarcasm font).
Week 4: 6-9
Well, there was 1 fewer game so at least I bested my Week 3 picks die to just good luck. Maybe it's time to let this idea of being a handicapper go.
Week 5: 9-5
Whew,....just when you think it's darkest outside, the light peeks through. 9-5 is good, but not helping me catch any ground. But positive is positive, right?
So for the first 5 weeks, that puts me at a solid 38-39. Week 6,...please be a positive week. I need you to be a positive week.
I normally test myself against the ESPN.com pundits so my 38-39 mark puts me squarely in last place,...by far. Send help.
