I have always wondered what it would be like to have all those announcers giving play by plays of my life like they do the game.
Bob "She is exiting the bathroom now, and it looks like she washed her hands."
Bill "Yes Bob, her hands look like they've been washed... thats the sign of a good hygienic person right there, her Husband Brad obviously recruited well."
Bob "Ya know she was the leading handwasher in High School with over 12 washes per day..."
Bill " I did not know that...Let's go to Nick on the sidelines to find out more"
"Hi this is Nick and I am standing in the hallway next to the bathroom where Paula has just emerged and apparently washed her hands for the 10th consecutive time today; Paula how are you feeling right now?"
I'm feeling pretty good about this weeks picks. The Start of the season is always the most difficult for me. Its hard with 2 young boys to constantly keep up with all the off season news and happenings, plus living is Singapore I am not flooded with the info... but I try. But, the first week has everyone's adrenaline pumping, and you just never know who will come out on top... Half the fun of the picks is trying to figure that out! :)
Here are 3 of my picks for week 1 - remember this is against the spread!
Texas V Rice - 23.5 - While I think Texas is gonna win, I do not think they are going to cover. It is still to be seen whether or not the team has recovered from last years mishap of a season.
Ohio vs New Mexico State - 7.5 - I took Ohio, to win and to cover. I just do not think the NMS Aggies have the manpower to take on the Bobcats. This is a good practice game for Ohio, and I am even going to be so cocky as to make a guess on the scoring... 56-14 - I think the Aggies can pull a few points when the Ohio 3rd string comes on the field.
USC vs Minn - 21 - I DO think USC is gonna take this one, but I think it will be a much closer game than 21. I am pretty sure there are more holes in the USC defense than they think, and the Kiffins have not settled just yet. Although, this will not be the beginning of a magic year for Minnesota... they could be a bit more interesting to watch this year.
I'm also taking Tennessee over Montana, LSU over Oregon, and Northwestern over Boston College!
Off to watch the games, and hope my girly senses are right!
