My Kingdom For a Quarterback

.. OK, maybe not a kingdom. How about a franchise? No? How about a couple of draft picks? Most mornings, I’ll go down to the corner store to get a cup of coffee and shoot the breeze with Tom, one of the clerks. The breeze-shooting generally centers on sports. One of Tom’s “pearls” is that […]

See What Sticks

Pick ‘Em Whatever Week This Is: Just Shoot Me

I’m glad there are only two more weeks left. This year’s Pick ‘Em has been humbling. I stink at picking games in 2014. Of course, the teams aren’t helping me out so there’s that. In recapping last week’s wonderful display of foresight, Ken went 6-1, missing only ND over Northwestern. I followed with a 3-3 […]
