El Pad's Weekly Betting Forum

Where I Stand:

Cash: ($92.00)

Picks: 50-51-2



Zona +3.5 ($150) in desert....fuck it. Leap of faith. When the Giants used to beat the Eagles Jim Johnson lost sleep trying to think of ways to cover Plaxico Burress. And it never worked. Kryptonite for any blitz-happy defense is a big, athletic WR wo can stretch the field. Because if Arizona picks up the blitz it leaves one of the two beasts one on one in single coverage. I dont see how Warner doesnt throw for 300, barring a birage of blitzes that go unblocked and leaves him either paralyzed or concussed. He's smart enough to know hot reads and plays that would cripple the Iggles. If they call plays that has Warner dancing in the pocket for more than 2 mississippi he's dead and so it the Cards season. Beacause the Eagles are going to score points. I don't care how spirited the Cards D is playing right now, McNizzle is here to play. Take the over as well. (49 points, $50)

Ravens +6 over Stillirs ($1000, going for the gusto)

Stop it Vegas. Just stop it. Why are you out-thinking yourself? I've never felt more comfortable taking an underdog than I do right now. 6 points!!!!!!!!!!!! If these teams played 100 times, Ravens would win 50, Stillirs would win 50. Everytime these two teams have played with alot on the line the games have ended close. I have no idea what Vegas is doing here. Trying to throw us all off. Like Gene Hackman said in "Enemy of the State", either your very very smart or very very stupid. Unrelated B-More is 7-3 ATS in last 10 Playoff games. Translation : COVER DOGS.

XBOX 360 officially busted, tried everything short of buying a new one. Decision time. New 360, or PS3 for blu-ray. Gonna be a tough one. Someone find me a geek message board so I can snoop around to see if either of the two consoles are coming out with something new and exciting. I have to have the best.

Weekend advice : Dream, like the good Dr. did.

Lighten Up America

14-15 year old girls took naked pictures of themselves and sent them to 16-17 year old boys.

The girls are being charged with making and distribution of child porno and the boys are being charged with possession.

Boston avoided arbitration with Kevin Youkilis, agreeing to a four-year contract with the first baseman worth more than $40 million, sources told ESPN's Peter Gammons. The deal includes an option for a fifth year.

CHIMAL

wow

El Padrino said...

Chimay

wow

fixed

El Padrino said...

"Chimay Bleue (Blue), 9% abv darker ale. In the 75 cl bottle, it is known as Grande Réserve. This copper-brown beer has a creamy head and a slightly bitter taste. Considered to be the "classic" Chimay ale, it exhibits a considerable depth of fruity, peppery character. The taste continues to evolve and develop with a few years of age, and is extremely popular with the Belgian population. "

I recommend this to all, I was twisted. It was $11 for one beer, poured in a Chimay liscenced round goblet. It punches you right in the dick. Powerful.

El Padrino said...

bible on Chimay

isiah thomas said...

Chimay

YES!

this is good stuff, really good

Jugdish said...

It punches you right in the dick.

kodiac said...

The Alfred Hitchcock Angle for "Creepiest Angle Involving Birds"
So you have the Cardinals beating the Seahawks in Week 17, then the Falcons in Round 1, and now, potentially, the Eagles in the NFC title game. Meanwhile, if the Ravens topple the Steelers, then the Cardinals could potentially beat every other NFL team with a bird nickname during their improbable five-game winning streak to capture the Super Bowl, and if that's not enough, birds took down Thursday's U.S. Airways flight heading from New York to Charlotte ... the city that's home to the team Arizona beat five days ago in Round 2. All I can tell you is this: Something better not happen to Larry Bird. You hear me, Arizona? Leave the Basketball Jesus out of your weird bird vendetta! Got it?

-pretty cool

isiah thomas said...

AJ's and whole foods sell Chimay also

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Bankrupt electronics retailer Circuit City Inc. said Friday it has asked for court approval to close its remaining 567 stores and sell all its merchandise.

El Padrino said...

"EP needs to call xbox support & send that fucker in if its been < than 3 years since he bought it"

got $1 riding on balt & az to win

I did a 2 team parlay with AZ and Balt to win for 40 cents (all I have right now to bet with). I feel pretty confident about Baltimore beating Pit....but have absolutely NFC what is going to happen in the NFC.

El Padrino said...

The Dodgers formally released Andruw Jones,” according to the Los Angeles Times, making him a free agent once he inevitably clears waivers.

Meiz said...

"< 3 years, by about 2 months

then why does it make sense to buy a new one?

kodiac said...

gonna let it ride on Pitt -6

name/pic bet Zeke? I'll even go straight up with no points.

-of course, I'm probably jinxing Balt by doing this, since I am about 0-11 on LOV bets.

El Padrino said...

"then why does it make sense to buy a new one?"

trying to find out about blu-ray, i heard the rumors but cant find out exactly waht the deal is

and i can just buy the console for that much on ebay

Tenn put up almost 400 yds of total offense on them.

potential disaster turns into us at our best.

isiah thomas said...

i'm tired of this airplane story already.

all the "depressing" news going on in the US right now, we "need" something like this.

just wait till the pilot makes the media rounds, coverage is going to get "worse".

Meiz said...

They're calling it the Miracle On The Hudson.

Steve said...

just wait till the pilot makes the media rounds, coverage is going to get "worse".

I could handle that kind of coverage. That was one hell of a landing and the dude deserves his props.

I'm just sick of all this miracle talk.

Chill the fuck out, Jules, this shit happens.

I guess in America you could call that a miracle.

People saying Tenn choked away the game. Why not say Baltimore made the plays?

Baltimore didn't play poorly, not at all.

but I'd say Tenn did choke that game away.

Yes. They come from a small sample which is then projected across an entire population.

you might need to febreeze your office chair

Keith S said...

My buddies & I went on a golf trip last summer, and we get to the hotel and the room was supposed to be non-smoking but it smelt awful. I went and complained at the front desk, so the lady follows me to the room and smelt it, so she left and came back with a febreeze can.

Jugdish said...

My office chair is a vault of beer farts

Tyler said...

I got a PS3 for Christmas because I wanted it for the Blu-ray player. I was really on the fence about getting a PS3 or an Xbox but I don't really play too many games, so I looked at it as a Blu-ray player with the added bonus of being able to play games on it.

I figured the games I play (sports and racing) would be widely available, unless the article I read the other day is true and Sony's massive restructuring may end up discontinuing the PlayStation division because they're getting crushed in sales. I highly doubt that will happen though.

I haven't hooked up the internet, but I've heard the online interface is better than Xbox Live. I'm also waiting until I move to get the HDTV, so I've watched Batman and Iron Man on Blu-ray, but there was only a slight difference.

I borrowed Little Big Planet and I'm looking to buy it on eBay right now.

A guy I work with bought a regular Blu-ray player and he says there's about a five minute delay waiting for it to load. I haven't run into that on the PS3 when I watch a movie. It loads quick. Like 30 seconds max.

Tyler said...

I also but an offer on a different condo yesterday.

Tyler said...

I'm out for lunch. Lates.

Jugdish said...

I'm also waiting until I move to get the HDTV


just go get one now from circuit city and keep it in your mom's basement until you move.

isiah thomas said...

he might be waiting to see what kind of condo he'll get - maybe he's waiting to buy new furniture or see how everything will fit and will "accessorize" with a new tv.

Anyone do research on laptops lately? recommendations?
