An oh so close to an epic Week 13 but alas after a strong start on Thanksgiving combined with a poor showing for the 1pm games, we finished really strong for the late games to get back to 8-8 ATS for the week. Keeps us at .500 for the year. We went a very nice13-3 SU so we were locked in on the winners just came out on the wrong end of every close spread. It was an acceptable week in my eyes as I felt very unsure about multiple games so we’ll move on to the next week.
QUICK LEAGUE NOTES
I had a busy week and haven’t had a chance to really look at anything and started very briefly yesterday. As soon as I looked at the first game I stopped what I was doing. There was just no way I was going to rush to beat the Jacksonville/Houston game deadline. However, I wish I did cause I would have bet Jville, as I’ve been on them the last few weeks riding their mini streak. Looking at last week’s games, in hindsight nothing crazy really happened. The biggest upset was probably the Vikings beating Da Bears (correctly called by Hal) but even that’s a stretch cause it’s a division game. Seattle really thumping NO by as much as they did was a little surprising but not earth shattering. It looks like the teams that need to are taking care of business right now. I don’t know if it will keep up but it appears that the have’s and have nots are really starting to separate.
Paul Walker died this past week in a car crash and all I hear is Fast and the Furious this and Fast and the Furious that. I honestly have never seen more than 5 minutes of any of those movies. I guess there are like 20 of them or something. One movie I have seen with him in it is Varsity Blues. Now that kids is a fucking great movie. He plays star quarterback Lance Harbor from West Canaan who gets his knee blown out because of a concussed Billy Bob cannot block. Then Johnathan Moxon comes into save the day albeit reluctantly because he’s looking towards his future out of the small town. The names in that movie are just the tops. Besides the aformentioned ones there is hard drinking Charlie Tweeter and Coach Bud Kilmer who makes Tom Coughlin look like a nun. Darcy Sears, the fame whore she is, tried to seduce ol Mox to no avail. It was not due to a lack of trying coming out in a whip cream bikini. Ahhhh, sluts. That movie just had everything.
I know this is a football blog but Robinson Cano signed with the Mariners today for 240 million for 10 years. Have fun counting your money in utter solitary because know one will hear from you again playing out there. I love how fans like me gripe sometimes when players take the money and bolt their homegrown teams. If an employer offered me even slightly more money I would seriously consider it even if it was in Saskatchewan cause I am a greedy fuck.

The “I dont want your life” scene was a no brainer but too predictable.
STAND UP COMEDY CLIP OF THE WEEK
Coffee flavored coffee is great. This is nine minutes long but you’ll get a few laughs relatively quickly.
HIGHLY RANKED FANTASY PLAYER THAT WILL SHIT THE BED THIS WEEK
I was pretty spot on with Frank Gore last week. He had 8.9 points while I had predicted 8.2 so thats a definite win for me. I am going to change it up this week. I am going to find a very low ranked player to exceed his expecations. This weeks choice is Ryan Fitzpatrick, ranked as low as #23 QB this week.
I think he’s set up for a decent week because of the situation. He’s playing @ Denver. More than likely this probably won’t be a close game so he’ll have the advantage of playing against a prevent type defense and Denver’s d isn’t good to begin with.
Prediction 20-35, 300 YDS, 2 TD’s 1 INT. (not bad for the 24th ranked QB) 18 points
