Cavalcade of Whimsy: Best GameDay Ever, We Got Through Week 1


This week’s reason I should be the next Commissioner of the Big Ten …

The Big Ten needs to just get through each day, wait and see how it all works out with the advancements in testing, and then it’ll look prudent in its decision to postpone – not “cancel” – the season. At the moment, though, the Big Ten college presidents have a whole slew of real world things they’re dealing with. That’s where I come in.

I’m an absolute master at the art of stall-ball negotiation.

Mulan will be free on this Disney+ thing in a few months. Every day I can work the clock and shorten the game between now and then is a day I’m not dropping $30 on a movie everyone in my house will forget 14 seconds after it’s over.

The sure-thing, 100%, rock-solid lock, sell the house, sell the kids, no doubt about it picks of the century for this week

PICK SO FAR: 3-1 SU, 2-2 ATS

Gee, thanks Navy. Bang up job with that whole option thing against a bunch of giant men on the lines that blasted away at will.

It’s the soft opening. I’ll take 2-2 for now.

Fortunately, all these picks are correct.

– Syracuse +22 over North Carolina (UNC straight up)
– Kansas -7 over Coastal Carolina
– Florida State -12 over Georgia Tech
– Louisiana +11.5 over Iowa State

Bet on any of all these games at BetMGM. Please.

C.O.W. shameless gimmick item …

The weekly five Overrated/Underrated aspects of the world

5. Overrated: All those who blame a referee for costing their team a game, and, effectively, for all of their life’s problems.

Underrated: The lineswoman who had the audacity of getting hit in the throat by a Novak Djokovic hissy-fit laser beam.

4. Overrated: Everyone who has no problem dropping $75 on dinner at whatever chain restaurant you feel like inserting here.

Underrated: YouTube TV FINALLY getting the NFL Network – followed up by people complaining about the streaming service hiking up the price by a few dollars.

3. Overrated: The “Hey, l know people who got COVID and everything is SUPER!” look-at-me tweeters.

Underrated: The people I know who got it and continue to get their butts kicked.

2. Overrated: My fantasy running backs I drafted entirely too early.

Underrated: Being juuuuuust fine not being the butt of any jokes after passing on Odell Beckham Jr.

1. Overrated: Me: “BYU’s offense is going to sputter against Navy without Matt Bushman.”

Underrated: Taking a nice stroll around the block on a crisp September evening in a time of self-reflection and examination of how one’s life went so very wrong.

Sorry if this column sucked, I wasn’t my fault …

Just like you at start of the column, little did anyone know at the time of the horror and devastation about to happen …
