Taking Time To Pop My Collar(s)



Well, my friends, this past weekend was a disaster of Titanic proportions for the team here at Rooch Nation.  And by team, I mean me.  Sure there's also my Webmaster, Kevin Tomasso, but seeing as he isn't responsible for any of my picks, and is at the current time having enough difficulties switching his Yahoo! Fantasy Sports profile photo, we'll just leave him out of this discussion all together.  Oh and on an unrelated note, I may need a more experienced Webmaster, so feel free to inquire within...

All pot shots at Frosco aside, this weekend really was one of the worst I've experienced since I started making picks, and it's got me to thinkin' about what action is necessary in order to right the ship.  But before I could outsmart myself, I remembered something a wise man once told me in regards to betting on sports...  


"Constantly changing your strategy is a surefire way to lose."

That wise man?  It was me.  And as a refreshing change of pace, I've decided to take my own advice.  Last thing I wanna do is to be constantly chasing new trends and end up like Teddy Zoolander up there.  Who oddly and appropriately enough looks a lot like a sports betting degenerate I used to know, and one whose tendencies I am now taking great pains to avoid following.  On the other hand, while you don't need to change your strategy, you'd also be foolish not to adjust how you implement it based on the information you have at your disposal.  Like for instance, maybe popping one collar would be OK, but it's when you go overboard in trying to constantly being on top of every little thing that end up looking like the over zealous idiot above (who on a side note must be sweatin' like a Sudanese hooker)...    

So while I am, in essence, taking a half week off here to "lick my wounds", you shouldn't in any way read this as the slightest sign of defeat or a radical change in thinking.  I may be down, but you best believe I'm far from out.  And I'll be back on Friday, primed for a week that would make handicapping legend Hammerin' Hank Goldberg blush.  OK, he's always red because he's always "hammered", but it's gonna be a sight man, so I suggest you check it out...

Oh and I'll have plenty to say about the Patriots and the rest of the league on Friday, too, if that's what you came here today hoping to find.  I'm sure you can already imagine what I have to say about the Pats 38-30 win over the Bills, but seeing as you can't possibly imagine the hilarious puns and comparisons I'm going to slip in there, it'll definitely be in your best interest to give Rooch Nation another click on the ole browser come Friday around lunch.  That, and I plan on helping you recoup all the money I've helped you lose so far.  Ya know, because I don't want you to put lit cigs out on my person when you see me at Thanksgiving because you lost a bunch of cash taking my advice.  So you know, I'm additionally motivated by the fear of friendly mutilation.  And that's always an enticing incentive if you ask me... 

Until then, keep your head up and your collar(s) down, and everything should work out just fine.  And even if it doesn't, it'll probably be humorous enough along the way to make it all worth while...

Be good, friends.
