Alternative Picks – Week 14, 2017

Another week, another loss for Andy. It was a tight one and it would have ended up a tie, if not for Pittsburgh’s fourth quarter comeback against Cincinnati. But, then again, who didn’t foresee the Bengals coughing up a game to the Steelers? It seems to happen at least once a year these days. As a result, Andy drops yet another $2 to Tony. So here’s where we stand: Week 13 Tony 9-7 Season total Tony 111-77   Week 14 looks like a minefield. So Andy chose to pick first: Andy: New England over Miami – My confidence this...

Bet the Mortgage: Week 10, 2017

Even in a week in which Andy wins his first Alternative Picks week and gets more games correct straight up than Tony, his bets remain a dumpster fire. No, a tire fire. No, a forest fire. No, probably, more accurately, a fire set in a dumpster full of tires out in the middle of a dry forest. Andy failed to get a single bet correct, putting him in sniffing distance of the bottom of his budget. Tony’s not exactly lighting Vegas on fire, but he’s mostly putting up 2-2 weeks and he’s profiting a few hundred bucks at a...

Alternative Picks – Week 8, 2017

This is turning into some Harlem Globetrotters/Washington Generals exhibition side show. It was another hideous week for Andy,  who is currently checking with his accountant to see if it’s legally allowable to pay off debts with funds from his daughter’s college account. … … We’re kidding. … We hope. At any rate, Tony’s commanding lead got bigger. Andy’s left pondering, once again, whether the game has passed him by. … Or whether there was ever really a time in which it was sitting in front of him and he actually knew what was going on. With that little bit...

Alternative Picks – Week 7, 2017

This is turning into a bad joke. Andy got killed again. Not that Tony’s picks have been great, but … Andy’s continue to be godawful. What we anticipated would be a fun contest where one of us might owe the equivalent of a Subway sandwich is turning into a Manny’s Steakhouse dinner. Andy’s going to need to turn things around fast or he’s going to have to start digging into college funds to pay the debt. Here are the standings: Week 6 Tony 10-4 Total Tony 55-32 Andy: Dallas over San Francisco – This is getting ridiculous. I’m getting...
