2017 Week 4 Picks


So, last week I mocked Tom Brady and took a shot at Kylie Jenner. The result? I had my worst week picking games in years, if not in my history (including an 0-7(!) mark for my picks on The Gresh Show). AND news broke that Kylie was probably knocked up. Coincidence?! Absolutely! But just in case it wasn't a coincidence, allow me to attempt to balance out the cosmic karma that did me dirty. So here:

Tom Brady is great. The science behind his book is solid. And if you follow Tom's advice, you too can live forever and marry a Brazilian supermodel. As for Kylie? She definitely isn't having a baby in the hopes of garnering more likes on the various social networks. And she definitely won't leverage the opportunity into a customized line of designer diapers and baby fashion accessories. OR use her situation as a way to orchestrate a meteoric rise to power within the influential MILF community. She's normal, like you and me. And she should be treated as such.

OK, there. Now I should be good to go. And go I shall!

Enjoy.

2017 Week 3 Picks


I love me some Tom Brady, the football player.

I tolerate me some Tom Brady, the guy with a lot of shady friends and quiestonable relationships.

I'm very much dreading me some Tom Brady, future infomercial pitchman, lifestyle guru, and male Gwyneth Paltrow.

I mean, why can't the guy just lend his name and likeness to a product that will break the second it's out of the box? Or maybe one that will slowly kill you with chemicals or give you diabetes? Ya know, like every other respectable retired athlete?! Hell, I'd even tolerate a car dealership, a real estate firm, a ponzi scheme, or a chain of tacky family restaurants! (ideally, he'd partner with TCBY on a chain of marijuana infused ice cream parlors called THCB12's)...

But for this?! For a book littered with unproven pseudo-science and marketed with a charming smile and an "ah shucks, well it works for me!"? No, sir. For this, I will not stand! I mean, I totally will stand. Because I really don't care. But I'd much prefer that Tom Brady just become the next puppet-governor of California, rather than the face of an empire that slings bars and beverages seemingly right out of Idiocracy...


Now this!

See, Tom? Now this is how you go about acceptably selling a lifestyle brand. I mean, I'm not entirely sure what's being sold here. Pools? Pillows? Sheets? Mattresses? Anti-gravity shoulder harnesses?? Who knows?! But whatever it is, you can go ahead and consider me a lifelong customer...

2017 Week 2 Picks


So, I was going to do a little write up about this nonsense between Jemele Hill and Donald Trump. But in preparing to do so, I realized that it was a ginormous waste of time. So instead, I decide to post the newly released trailer for the Eric Clapton documentary that's going to air this February on Showtime. And I think I made the correct decision...

Now, here's to making some more correct decisions! In the form of degenerative game-picking. Which is better than degenerative nose-picking. And better than talking about Jemele Hill and Donald Trump. But probably not better than Eric Clapton. Ya know, except for maybe for all of those times that he was so incapacitated by surely delicious drugs that he couldn't play music. Which, apparently, was most of the time. So, yeah. Thanks for the music...

Oooo and he used a "pick" to play his guitar! So it all ties in! Or at least it ties in a whole lot better than the analysis of a few racially charged back and forths between a broadcaster and some Twitter trolls...

Enjoy!

So apparently young, taut Jessica Simpson likes Louisville? Or went to Louisville? OR is a fan of the Arizona Cardinals?? Meh, either way. This is what Google Images spewed out when I searched for hot chicks from Louisville. So I'm goin' with it. And I'll also be thinking about how John Mayer called sex with young, taut Jessica Simpson a "drug" because she was so "crazy" in bed. Ya know. Because hormones. Freaking John Mayer...
