I messed up and didn't get my picks up Friday. Last week, I got my assed kicked going 2-2 (1-3 against the spread) as San Diego and Arizona showed me they got something. So much for an all-Manning Super Bowl.
I'd be lying if I said I had the Cardinals to win at Carolina today but the truth is I wasn't buying the 10-point spread and took Arizona and the points in my local pool. I also had Baltimore over the overrated Titans (even with the best record in football) so I'm 2-0 going into Sunday where it counts anyway -- and that's in the ol' wallet.
Sunday I'm sticking with the Giants, though I'm nervous about my boys in a game they should win. They played so flawlessly at times this season, I stopped expecting them to screw up. But then they turned into the old nail-biting Giants and had me reaching for the Xanax every Sunday. Then came their thrilling win against the Panthers and I relaxed a bit. But now I'm back to nervous wreck. They better not fuck up - I hate losing to the Eagles.
I'm glad I have the Super Bowl highlights on my iPhone to comfort me just in case.
I like Pittsburgh in game two. I've loved the Steelers in the Big Ben era. What a defense. And the game is in Pittsburgh. And L.T. is hurt. Did I say the game was in Pittsburgh?
