Football

Wow, it's the busy time in the sports world with the start of something more important than anything else on this planet, thats right football. Wait, this is a poker blog so let's start with some poker content first.

I was suppose to meet ex-blogger KOD (no sense linking his blog since it's history) but I just can't bear missing football to sit at a table with a bunch of douchebags so I didn't meet him on Tuesday, or Friday, or definitely not Saturday. I did though hit-and-run a couple cash games online for some decent profits but that maybe took two half hour sessions.

Thank you Oklahoma for kicking Miami's ass and running up the score. Guess you guys are still pissed from the 80s when we kicked your asses every year. Anyway this reminds me of us losing to Florida St (when's the last time you won anything) 47-0 and Syracuse (haha you guys are fucking pathetic) 66-13 back when we were coming off probation following Dennis Erikson. Butch Davis took a team way low on talent, built them up and took them to a National Championship in 2001 and only a fixed game in 2002 against some crappy Big Ten team prevented Miami from going back-to-back.

Now Randy Shannon takes over a team low on talent thanks to Larry Coker not being able to recruit and he too will build Miami into a powerhouse once again. Our early recruiting class for next year is head and shoulders above anyone else and once the talent starts showing up in Coral Gables its over. So all you haters get ready to watch Miami win a couple more Championships really soon. Oh yea Oklahoma, you guys are really good, but don't think we won't be waiting for you when you come to Miami in 2009.

Man there are some truly shitty teams in the NFL this year. So much for parity and everybody going 8-8. I can't remember two teams as shitty as Cleveland and Kansas Shitty. Seriously I might really have to bet against those donks every single week they are so bad. Thankfully they don't play each other. How about those Arizona Cardinals? They can find a way to lose a game like no team I've ever seen before. Wow. Can't wait to see how this season shakes out because there might be five or six teams that don't win more than 4 games. I also hope somebody beats N England this year so Miami can remain the only team to go unbeaten for an entire season. Man with Moss there now they might be unstoppable.

Speaking of betting against teams, how about that call I made on the Mariners road trip? That was sheer brillance.

ML 8-2 +500
RL 6-4 +375

The intention was this to be much longer but some things came up that I had to deal with so sorry this is all you get. I'll finish up with some more thoughts tomorrow.

Criticizing college football teams for running up the score is kinda dumb since it's been proved that huge point margins influence poll voters more than any other factor.

If only wins and losses mattered in college football I'd happily agree with you, but since it's a poll situation, they have to play their best all the time.

Great call on the Mariners, btw. I was with you on the ML the entire way.

If I hadn't read it here I wouldn't have made the bets.

thanks for the pimpage. IMO you come away a winner every week betting against the Browns, KC and Oakland.

Btw you're the only guy out there that I read calling that pathetic 3-point line on the Eagles last weekend "too good to be true". I bet millions were lost on donks betting up the Eagles on the biggest "sure thing" of the year.

Great call and a great job so far on the games in this short football season.
