So Today is the start of the NFL Season and at 6:30 the game is going to kick off and where will I be?
At my boy's soccer practice watching a bunch of pre-teens practice and try to get better at a sport they love instead of watching the one I love.
However, all is not lost as I do have a Verizon phone and it appears as though I can pay $5/month to stream Thursday Night, Sunday Night and Monday Night games plus whatever bullshit local games get played on Sundays (read Raiders and Cardinals mostly).
I had debated going with NFL Rewind so that I could watch the games after they happened but knowing myself I would probably not use it enough to make it worth whatever I paid for it. So, $5 to watch the game tonight is reasonable to a baller like me.
This year I am setting aside some of those amazing poker winnings that I have had recently so that I can bet one parlay card every week through the season. I figure $20 per week is reasonable enough that it won't make or break me.
I'm also going to copy Coach and put my predictions out there and keep track of what my record is every week to see how bad my prognostication abilities are. I just used a big word on purpose, I feel like Punxsutawney Phil.
I'll get to the weekend picks in another post but I figure that I should at least put up tonight's pick so that everyone doesn't think I cheated just to get one right.
Greenbay vs Seattle
Seattle's Defense is going to be key here and it will not come down to a last second Hail Mary like a previous encounter.
Seattle will win but I am not predicting scores.
Either tomorrow or Saturday after work I will head to one of the 3 million local sports books out here and book my parlay card for the week - I don't know which one I'll go to but I really don't think it matters all that much (unless one of you convinces me otherwise).
