No offense, but I hope the results so far are as meaningless as the pre-season itself. Because, in a word, I'm sucking it
Here's to a role-reversal come money-time.
You want to know my secret?
I pick FOR teams I like, AGAINST teams I hate. I also think about.... "which of my friends like certain teams?" ...I'll pick them to root for them. Or...."who do I DISLIKE and what team do THEY like so I can pick against them?"
And I always pick the skins no matter what. Because any team can win on any given day, even if they are playing the Patriots. And they almost won.
But honestly, my picking has a lot to do with how the team did last year and also how I personally feel about the team and whether or not I want to root for them based on people I know who like them.
I suspect you're both on performance enhancing drugs.
try it with your picks this week.....think, "hmm....what team does that idiot in the cubicle next to mine like?" then pick against that team. Then think, "hmmm.... what team tshirt was the sexy lady at the gym wearing?" then pick for that team.
Maybe I should revert to whether I like their uniform colors
Problem with picking in the pre-season is, teams aren't necessarily even trying to win - so trying to pick the best team isn't necessarily helpful. If I can't break .500 in the Regular season, there's just something horribly wrong ...
It is nice to see you came out on top a couple times MissU28, but the game is to win for the whole season. And for the whole pre-season I AM THE WINNER!! I've been humble for too long - now that we are playing for real, the kid gloves are off and I'm ready to roll.
Anyway - good luck to everyone during the season, although I really would like to win an authentic jersey. Next year the Campbell pro bowl jersey will be available!!!
