Mr. Pickles

Recently got a new cat. I've had a cat for the past eight years. Alee [top] is small, but ferocious. Well, OK, she's not ferocious, but she makes up for it by sleeping a lot. Her life was one huge nap punctuated by occasional eating and pooping. That is, until Mr. Pickles came on the scene. Mr. Pickles [below] is a hard Philly cat from the mean streets. He doesn't take crap from anyone. Also, he likes to play with string.

After moving in, Mr. Pickles wasted no time drinking Alee's water and eating her food. This lasted for two weeks. I though Alee was just going to take it. But, Alee is nobody's bitch. Certainly not to anyone named Mr. Pickles. Alee waited until the time was right, and I wasn't there. I was walking to class and talking on the phone with my fiance, when there was a loud "MEADOUJALDHF'ALDSF'AEJKF'LD!" in the background. My fiance maintained her cool. "AAAAHHHHHH", she said. "Alee is beating up Mr. Pickles!" At this point, for reasons that are still unclear to me, I turned into a pimp. "Dats riiiight," I said. While the pimp is away, the cats will kick the crap out of each other (apparently).

Things are different now back at the household. Much like the Union Army, Alee hasn't pressed her advantage. She is content to stay upstairs, especially since thats where her food is. Mr. Pickles stays downstairs. Occasionally they'll see each other up the stairway and hiss at one another. But basically we have cat d├ętente at the Kory household. Personally, I think this is the calm before the storm, but then I thought the Redskins would make the playoffs, so what do I know?

So, you might be thinking, what does this have to do with football?

The answer is, nothing. Nothing at all. Here is the slate for Week 15:
San Francisco at Seattle
Dallas at Atlanta
Cleveland at Baltimore
Detroit at Green Bay
Houston at New England
Jacksonville at Tennessee
Miami at Buffalo
NY Jets at Minnesota
Philadelphia at NY "Turtles, Slow But Built To Last" Giants
Pittsburgh at Carolina
Tampa Bay at Chicago
Washington at New Orleans
Denver at Arizona
Kansas City at San Diego
St Louis at Oakland
Cincinnati at Indianapolis (plus total points)
Remember, peeps, I need all your picks by the start of the first game (Thursday, 8pm EST) if you are going to be eligible for the weekly money. Have a great week.
