One pitch. One mistake on a fast ball to Beltran and that's all she wrote. Weaver pitched his ass off but he grooved a fast ball and the Cards are down 1-0. I do feel good about Carpenter going in Game 2 and hopefully we can get out of the shithole known as Shea even at 1-1.
The Stations Casinos, which Red Rock belongs too, has its annual football contest every year with a year long first prize of $100,000. Also each week they give away $20,000 for the best picks and $10,000 for the worst picks. The picks are based straight-up and no point spread is involved. Now I got three plays for $50 so I turn in one sheet, my dad turns in one sheet, and the guest picker turns in the third sheet. So far this year the guest picker has been a blogger and if they win I will split the $20,000 first prize with them although so far no cash.
Here are the results so far.
Week 1 Carmen Sincity 7-8 (22 players went 14-1)
Week 2 JJ 13-3 (18 players 16-0)
Week 3 Hoyazo 8-6 (1 player 14-0)
Week 4 Smokkee 9-5 (13 players 14-0)
Week 5 Waffles 9-5 (1777 14-0)
As you can see it usually takes an undefeated week to get in the tiebreaker and you can also see that if you went 14-0 last week BFD, which means Big Fucking Deal as every favorite won straight-up.(11 covered the spread)
This week the Guest Picker will be none other than the good Doctor himself. We've also arranged a private bet between the Jets and Dolphins so we'll see in a couple days who wins that bet. BTW don't forget to get those essays submitted to Pauly's site as the deadline is tomorrow night. If I had to pick Pauly I would choose whichever Spice the sister is, but since I'm so overly PC (Right Iak) I choose not to complete the essay.
The weekend is upon us and if anybody is interested in picks check out Shea's site for some winners. He's coming off an 11-2 weekend and all his numbers are documented.
As for me it looks like another weekend of poker and gambling. Fuck life is good.
