El Pad's Weekly Betting Forum

First off I need to know if T sent Clifford some roses. Keeping the baseball theme for a minute Free Agency officially begins today and it should be a slobberknocker. Expect the millions to be flying around. Funny thing bout that, economy is in the tank and beisbol players are getting paid more than ever. Expect 180MM for Carsten Charles. Manny thing will be interesting. Boras is so good at what he does it makes him a tremendous asshole. If he wrote a book I betcha it'd be a NY Times best seller week one. So lot's of baseball news going on today, let's beware, keep our eye on the prize and close some ass.

Games be good you.

I may be shammy'ing this a bit but that might be the 2nd or 3rd biggest win in Jet History. I mean to be up 24-6, they come back after you forget to come out of the locker room for the 3rd quarter, then to sustain that back breaking drive only to have Cassel come back to tie it, then win on the first possesion in OT...that was a damn good win and a helluva football game. Mayo is some linebacker. And it was nice to see Bruschi on the sideline for some defensive snaps. Your old and tired. Please die. Vrabel haolding call, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Fuck aitch.

Where I Stand:
Cash : $1157.50
Picks: 29-25

No big games in college this week. I'll bite on just one decent one.

OK State -17 over Colorado (Straight Bet $50)

I'm a man! I'm 40. Been dying to work that into a post. Feels good.

Jax +3 over Titans (Striaght Bet $150)

3rd time is a charm. I've said for two weeks now that the Titans will go down. And two weeks in a row they've found a way to win. The Green Bay game was closer but this week they play road favorites again. In Jacksonville, it seems like Jack Del Rio has had enough of everyone's shit and is really pissed off. He looks like a guy who, if he throws some shit around the office, it looks quite frightening. And mind you this a rarity for me, the ATS numbers involved in this match-up are heavily slanted towards Tennessee.

Bengals +9 over Philly (Straight Bet $150)

Big number for the Iggles who tend to play down to thier competition (cept week one). Bengals have improved, have been in a number of close games and almost beat the defending champs in thier own house. I know Palmer is out but Fitzpatrick is not Brad Johnson terrible so they got that going for them.

San Diego +5.5 over Pittsburgh (Straight Bet : Shits and Giggles, $25)

It's obvious SD won't be threatened or pushed to win that division. Unless the Broncos can wake up and play defense. That aside I feel like everytime I watch this team or highlights that they "Moss" it a couple of plays against the likes of Kansas City or Oakland. In this business we say all the time "they play down to thier competition", hell I even said that in an earlier nugget and the flip side of that is "they get up for big games". This is a huge game for San Diego. I believe it will be the 4:15 game nationally on CBS. Pittsburgh is banged up pretty bad, the Injury list they just put out is longer than Rev's saturday afternoon King Kullen run and SD have heard all year thus far what a "failure" they been so far. As if the season is only 9 weeks old. This is a show me game. SD shows up.

St Loo/San Fran over 44. Going against the trends again. No idea why. Just a hunch.



This, this is for Matilda.

i went bowling last night and rolled a 70 for one of my games.

i was embarassed.

Keith S said...

tem knows orka?

Keith S said...

poor tem

tem said...

i'm not too worried about the 4th string RB and the holder getting in trouble.

Keith S said...

They provided good support from the bench

tem said...

now they can provide the same support from the stands.

or jail.

Keith S said...

Who knew that tem was a glass half full kind of person

tem said...

is lesnar going to win tomorrow?

Keith S said...

That's tomorrow? Fuck, I thought it was next week

Keith S said...

I think Couture will dominate him. Unanimous decision

tem said...

i am going to say lesnar wins.

tem said...

mostly because i can't decide and you picked couture.

tem said...

"That's tomorrow? Fuck, I thought it was next week"

that's ok, i thought it was last week.

Jugdish said...

How did you roll a 70? You must have really been hammered. A 70 is hard to do.

El Padrino said...

they really need to straighten that out somehow

El Padrino said...

tem, a 70?

cmon

Jugdish said...

You would think the Governator would have a plan for that.

tem said...

yep a 70 in my third game.

i have no clue what happened.

blue said...

San Diago is not a good football team, you're a fool

tem said...

other 2 games were in the 130 or 140s.

i'm not a very good bowler.

blue said...

bowling is for drinking and fun, not for scoring

blue said...

that's why they have those computers that score for you, to not distract you from the drinking.

Jugdish said...

true...but a 70?

Tyler said...

I forgot about my mancrush on Clifton Phifer Lee until they showed him last night on SportsCenter. Cy Young, baby!

By the way, if you look up the award on wikipedia, that is the strangest trophy you'll ever seen.

El Padrino said...

stranger then the grey cup?

Tyler said...

And yeah, 70? Terrible.

blue said...

70 is an average of 7 pins per frame, that sounds reasonable....for a 10 year old

blue said...

first snow of the season here today, you'd think it was the blizzard of '08 the way people are talking...it's not even sticking to the roads

Tyler said...

Hmmm, yeah, the grey cup is pretty strange, I'll give you that.

The Cy Young has a hand gripping a baseball awkwardly coming out of a vertical award.

Tyler said...

With a V for some reason worked into it.

blue said...

V is for Victory

Jugdish said...

tem...is this a bumper league? you should check into those.

Tyler said...

70 means you had to go out of your way to not pick up a spare. And you fucked up the 10th.

El Padrino said...

blue said...

every year a group of former co-workers and friends have a beerbelly triathalon where we play 9 holes of golf, bowl 3 games and then have a pool tournament, and your beer can never be empty.

the bowling by the 3rd game is atrocious. I think i rolled a 34 in the 3rd game last year.

Beth said...

"if tits wanted to be first she should have posted earlier"

Maybe I didn't want to be first today...

Besides, if I want to see tits all I have to do is look down, it's the rest of you that are now stuck with underdog instead of boobs everytime you refresh LOV. :-)

stick with the orange balls tem

tem said...

"where we play 9 holes of golf, bowl 3 games and then have a pool tournament, and your beer can never be empty."

my buddy was hammered at bowling and explaining his version of this:

"it's a twelve-athalon, over 2 sundays. last sunday we golfed, shot free throws, putt putt golfed, caught footballs and golfed. this sunday we are going to play pool, bowl, play billiards, and throw darts...and play ping pong.......and bowl."


he got a huge ::blank stare:: from tem.

tem said...

"stick with the orange balls tem"

this alley did not have orange balls.

my strategy was to find a black ball and give it a racial pep talk about getting to knock white things with red necks down.

blue said...

"caught footballs"

this is a competition?

blue said...

"my strategy was to find a black ball and give it a racial pep talk about getting to knock white things with red necks down."

blue said...

the big Ern had more hair

tem said...

"The hair is the same"

if i "grew" mine out. my hair is really short or not there at all.

Jugdish said...

Beth...those racial jokes are just a little over the top. I thought we were past that. I mean we live in a nation where a black man can be president and Hootie can sing country music. I can finally tell my kids, if I ever have one, that they can be anything.

tem said...

wow, a big ern has more hair than tem i2i.

that's be worth a point or two in the TCS.

Jugdish said...

beats me, i never figured out half of what he said.


he was too focused on bowling a 70

Beth said...

"Beth...those racial jokes are just a little over the top."

Jug, my comment wasn't meant as a joke but as a genuine appreciation to Obama for raising awareness of racism and racial stereotyping in this country. The fact that you thought it was a joke does in fact make you a racist.

s

tem said...

"he was too focused on bowling a 70"

he was too focused on beating my 70.

blue said...

did you hear about the chick who was kilt at the KKK initiation in Lousiana

Obamer should take credit for the klan's increase in recruitment

Jugdish said...

I heard about that...she had a change of heart apparently.

blue said...

i didn't even know the klan was still around

blue said...

newt gingrich likes hillary as the sec. of state

Jugdish said...

want me to send you an application?

tem said...

klan does all sorts of crap around here. well they pretend to.

usually in february during black history month.

like on MLK day they will petition to have a parade and get denied then they will bitch about it in the media for a week.

then they'll be quiet until the next "black" holliday and try to do another parade.

blue said...

nah, i went to school in north idaho i've had my fill of white supremecists

tem said...

" went to school in north idaho "

are there even non-white people there?

blue said...

"are there even non-white people there?"

lots of mexicans

but the White Supremecist HQ (arayan nation) were up there for a long time, but not anymore

Jugdish said...

lots of mexicans here too

tem said...

they have a HQ?

El Padrino said...

mexicans are everywhere

El Padrino said...

no clue they made it to idaho though

wft

blue said...

"they have a HQ?"

they did. the guy who was the "leader of the aryan nation" or some shit had a huge ranch where he housed a shitload of them.

and every year they had a white pride parade, and they showed up and protested at all kinds of shit. they were scary as hell.

blue said...

"no clue they made it to idaho though"

it's an agricultural state

MPS will be the greatest place on earth.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

And we will arbitrarily kick customers out on a regular basis.
