Suicide Pool

Sorry to butt in here, but I'll make this quick.

I officially propose we start the LOV suicide pool here.

You all know the rules of a suicide pool. Pick one team a week to win straight up. You can't pick the same team twice in a year. You lose, you're out. You win, you keep picking. Last one standing wins.

Post your official picks in this comments section and we'll go week to week. Get them in by 6pm ET, 3pm PT today. And I'll post the list of who picked what later.

This is really for bragging rights only. though I may give up my Terrell Owens autographed book to the winner. We shall see.

Get it started!

My pick for week 1... Philadelphia Eagles.

And of course, feel free to keep commenting on Zeke's post below. It's a good thread.

UPDATE - We will take picks until kickoff of the first game tonight at 8:30ET. But once the ball is kicked, no more players allowed. So you have a couple more hours to get in on it.

mound of venus said...

i will take the cowboys over the jags.

for the record as well...RAIDERS will beat the chargers.

Isiah Thomas said...

where the hell has mound been?

El Padrino said...

ok art shell, relax

Martin VanNostrand said...

mound is being probably cutting back on posts for fear of a ball dipping from iam. What went down with jug last week put a hush on the streets.

Isiah Thomas said...

teabagging is the ultimate deterrent.

Eric said...

I'll take the Eagles this week

anonymous said...

i keep my earz to da streetz and i keepz it reelz

mound of venus said...

rev--i think those of us that are taking the underdogs should be given some sort of bonus. the pats over the bills is not exactly going out on a limb.

The Rev said...

Mound... that ain't the way it works.

Martin posts but doesn't pick? What gives?

Beth82678 said...

I'm in, put me down for Dallas.

mound of venus said...

im giving myself a bonus then. beth, feel free to give yourself one as well. we will not be denied!

mound of venus said...

female intuition is on my side here as well fellas. they are never wrong.

Spaceman Spiff said...

if you went out on a limb every week in a suicide pool, youd be gone in 3 weeks tops, thats why its a suicide pool, trying to last as long as possible, so pats over bills keeps me from committing hara-kiri for this week (hopefully)

The Rev said...

Mound...

if you want to "give yourself a bonus", fine!

But for God's sakes man, don't do that in public. There's laws against that sort of thing you know.

There's a half hour left to pick. Should I extend the deadline to 8pm?

Isiah Thomas said...

I'd say anything within 5 mins of kickoff is ok

Martin VanNostrand said...

Sorry Rev. Put me down for Cinci. If I make it to week 4 I will have to make my 4-6 pics in advance. As documented for FFL I will be absent these 3 weeks of the season w/o internet. I have not looked at the FFL schedule yet but good fortune to whoever plays the Yeti Ninja Ballers those weeks.

The Rev said...

Martin... no problem. You can e-mail them to me.

We will take picks until 8:30pm ET. But once kickoff happens tonight, we are done.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Rev was there an inscription from TO or just his sig?

Beth82678 said...

Just so you know, years ago I did win a football pool against a bunch of guys, and I still won't let them live that one down. :-) So mound, we've got that going for us. (Plus, I just don't see Parcells losing when he's had this long to focus on one opponent.)

Of course then again I had never heard of a suicide pool til the rev posted about this one...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'll take the FINS! That's right. Pittsburgh's goin down!

Isiah Thomas said...

MOV's profile says he is male...................

temwr said...

Rev you dumbass he is without internet for those weeks. I don't think he can email them to you.

mound of venus said...

zeke--follow the thread. beth said she was taking the cowboys too. she is female. thus, female intuition is on my side. get with it son.

temwr said...

MoV wants bonus points for picking dogs, not being female.

mound of venus said...

word.

whocares said...

I'm throwin down on Tampa Bay.

Isiah Thomas said...

sorry, reading may be fundamental but I'm all about flying above the rim.

The Rev said...

Temwr, you dumbass!

He can e-mail them to me in advance before he goes. It's not like he can't look at the schedule in advance.

The Rev said...

I got 19 people in so far. Who's going to make it 20 or more?

Where's Jfreak? Someone wake him up.

Isiah Thomas said...

Meiz I left you a message on the other thread.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

zeke, reply on the other thread.

Bob Kaelin said...

Coming in just under the wire, I'm going to pick the Redskins for this week. I don't know if more than one person can pick the same team or not and if not, I hope no one else pick them.

So Skins it is. Don't ask me why.

Bob Kaelin said...

It says 8:35 on my above thread but it was 8:29 by Comcast time when I posted it. Hope it counts.

temwr said...

yeah i am a dumbass

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Welcome, Bob Kaelin.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Hey, let's get all the folks in the fantasy football league to vote on who's gonna win each match up every week.

ebntx said...

steelers go up 28-17

meiz just took his own life.

Bob Kaelin said...

Hello Mr. Meiz. Thank you for your welcoming of me.
