I'm trying to take the kids to the beach today. Sacha will get to eat his first handful of sand and Wyatt will take his first poop in the ocean. Oh, this is gonna be a joy.
Why do I mention that? Because this is my blog and I can mention any damn thing I like. For example, the Redskins are going to the SUPERBOWL!!! Just a little comic relief there on a cold Monday morning.
Hope everyone had a good weekend of luscious football-related action. So, to the pool(poop!): with all but one of the games in the books, we've got yet another tie for first. Alex Mena and Gedeon Mariam are both 11-4 with tonight's Indy at Miami game left to go. Both picked Indianapolis to win (as did I think just about everyone else with maybe one exception), so, again, it's gonna come down to Monday Night Points.
[A quick aside: Not everyone sent in their Monday Night Points with their picks this week, so if it ever comes down to a choice between someone who sent in their MNP and someone who didn't, the one who didn't ain't gonna win shit. Jus say'n.]
Anyway, Gedeon picked 42 MNP and Alex called a high scoring 56.
Remember, it's the closest without going over (unless everyone is over then it's just the closest to the actual number), so it looks like Alex is fucked. If the score totals anything below 56 points, Gedeon is going to be the winner. If it's 56 or more then Alex wins. Good luck to both of you.
I'll be back tomorrow or Wednesday with a memorial service for Week 2, our first of what will be weekly checks into the overall standings (hint: I am not in first place) and a look ahead to Week 3 where all y'all hoes gonna pick my Redskins to win, even if you really really really don't want to.
Ta ta for now.
