I Would Like Someone To Invent a Time Machine, Please.

GAHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I forgot to make my picks this weekend for the pro-football pick 'em group I'm in.* I've effectively taken myself out of the running and now have zero chance of winning. Not that my strategy of picking based on the cuteness of the team logos was going well, but still, $35 DOWN THE FREAKING DRAIN. That's like three 12-packs of beer, completely wasted.



*Yeah, I ended a sentence in a preposition. Whatcha gonna do about it?

That's horrible!! How could you do such a thing?? Waste good beer money...that's a sin!!

We've sucked ass the past 2 weeks in our fantasy football thing, but this week so far we're number 1, so we'll see after tonight. Keep your fingers crossed for me...if we win, I'll share my beer with you ;-)

3 12 packs? Why wouldn't you buy 2 24 packs for the same price?

Yah, I did the same thing. At least, it was the free pool on ESPN with some friends, not the pick'em group that I had put money in, which I stand a good chance of winning this weeks set of games if KC wins tonight. Shoot, probably jsut jinxed myself now. *pout*

AMG, I did the same thing. AND I AM SO PISSED ABOUT IT. There has to be some girl-friendly way of reminding people to make their picks.

Goddamnit.

The same thing happened to my lovely bride last year with a pool at work. She missed the turn-in deadline by like 10 minutes. The guy who was running the pool wouldn’t take her picks. By the way, the turn-in deadline was Friday morning at 11:00am. I’m not sure what kind of edge she would’ve had by turning it in at 11:10am, but maybe that guy was a wagering genius.

Regarding the preposition...if anyone gives you any shit, just rephrase it like so, especially for them: ”I forgot to make my picks this weekend for the pro-football pick 'em group I'm in, asshole.” :-)

1) Drink better beer. No way you get three cases of, say Boulevard Pale Ale for $35 (or if you do, clue me into your liquor store).

2) Cuteness of logos makes as much sense as my own guideline, that the Chiefs will always win, and the more offensive to liberals a team's name/logo is, the more likely they are to win (hence, only the Oilers, Redskins and Vikings stand a chance against us).

3)What the fuck kind of pool makes you forfeit the season for a single week? MNF hadn't happened yet, so what if you (rightly) predicted that the Chiefs are just letting the Broncos look good at the moment? We'll come back, by 11:00 central time, the Broncos will be wondering how they blew such a lead!

No worries, you can always just sit back and watch the Steelers dominate this year! (Well, minus yesterday's lose.)

Justice said...

Sounds like me...too much going on in your life. LOL

$35? Come on, you gotta go higher stakes than that. I play in an $85 entry-fee pool at work where if you win one week, you win $90 and you're already ahead. So after eking out a victory last week, at this point I'm already ahead! Bout it.

BKing said...

Yup. Jinxed myself. Damn Chiefs. *grumble mumble*

Chiefs fans? Could they look any worse on MNF? I'm also a "chiefs" fan but it has nothing to do with the football team in Kansas City. lol Go Colts!
