    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    Remember you can always pick any Saturday game as long as you pick before the scheduled start time. And if you didn't post on Friday, you can still post on Saturday before the scheduled start time.

    That California vs North Carolina seems to have been a difficult one to pick... wish we would have had points for the Florida game...
    Good Job game picker ;)

    Likely I should not have accepted this LYFT offer.

    Might have been safer to stay with Uber?

    Anyways, LYFT driver Anorexia , whole claims to spend her waking hours predicting the habits of young men barely out of high school.., already providing me precise information relative to Week 2 CFB games
    ,
    Started out simply enough...how are you? having a nice day?do you own a dog?

    ( stuff like that)

    2 miles into the ride, we'e talking Kiffin tendencies inside the 40 yard line, Saban's vacation proclivities, and whether Auburn or UGA will finish with the best record for 2017...

    Let-up games, Look-Ahead conversations....and before you know it, I am left standing in my driveway, speechless...as she drives away

    Looking at next week's games, and under a strict oath-of confidentiality,she left me with a handful of " upset alerts" for Week 2, and about a dozen EZ spread covers

    Finally, before pulling away at the curb, after haggling over the tip (should it be $3? Or $4?)..she said she'd throw me a bone...Alabama vs. xxxxxxxx xxxxx U, 2025 college season kick-off game, and the over- under of 47. And the fact that Tennessee WILL win week 1 same year....

    Naturally, I am a bit Leary ( think Timothy) , but:

    Pick'Em could be verrrry, verrrry " interesting " Week 2...

    ( Jusy Saying....)

    Can't believe it. Marked UCLA as losing in this game. Now up by 1 with 39 seconds left after being down 44-10. Go UCLA.

    So proud of my Vols for finding the ability to battle back from 21-7 down to win in 2OT. One game I don't feel bad about picking incorrectly. Didn't look like I picked wrong though going into the 3rd quarter. Way to go Vols.

    Sowal Pick'ems Week 1 Results
    Easy week with 2/3 pickers in double digits. Last year's co-champions either didn't pick or "virtually" didn't pick. aTmMom and kurt led the week, and were 3-4 from last year. Congratulations!

    Good games, Nest-R

    On my way right now to the Tarot Card reader hangs out in front of The Bellagio

    ( really want to get in on those early " soft" betting lines... weak2)

    Weak? Or Week?

    - (We'll know in just a few short days...)

    But, more important, BellagioBetty doesn't work out, I'll head on over to visit the barmaid at Dottys Video Poker and Brewery....

    - Heck, I might just do both anyways...and it's likely Beer30 somewhere...

    Got to fund my retirement somehow...

    And those back-door money-line covers by UCLA and TN?

    WHAT THE HECK??....

    Will crash and burn this week probably but I faired better a couple of years back by picking without looking at the odds. Did worse going by the odds. So it is what it is.
