Pet peeve #whatever

I can't stand bathroom attendants. Seriously, I can't fucking stand them. I felt obligated to tip when I was younger, but now it's not even an option. All they do is hand you a paper towel. Oh, wow! I couldn't do that myself! Thank you so much! Not. Please, go away.

And no, I don't want your shitty cologne or gum. Thanks but no thanks.

Super Bowl XLIX Pick

Just like last year, the big game (Super Bowl XLIX if you're wondering) will come down to both #1 seeds. The Seattle Seahawks of the NFC will try to defend their title against the New England Patriots of the AFC, and it should be an excellent game. It is in Arizona this year, so weather will not be a factor; in fact there is no favorite for this game as of last night. Before my pick, a brief recap of the Conference Championships.

For the second year in a row I was correct with both conference picks, though it seemed I wouldn't be for a while. The Seattle Seahawks needed a great comeback to overcome MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. The Indianapolis Colts, however, were unable to overcome "Deflate Gate" as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots rolled over them. Brady will meet the fearsome Seattle D in just a few hours...

2014 NFL Picks for Conference Championships

I did indeed improve my playoff mark last week, finishing 3-1 for the Divisional Round. I am 5-3 overall during the playoffs, and if I go 3 for 3 during the remaining games I will post my best playoff record thus far.

My only loss came from picking the favorite Denver at home against Indianapolis. I was glad Dallas lost (karma is a bitch), and the other 2 games went how I expected. On to the championship games, which look like they should be very entertaining:

Sunday
Green Bay Packers at Seattle Seahawks
Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots

no upset picks this week.

2014 NFL Picks for Divisional Round

Finished up 2-2 last week after ending the Saturday games in an 0-2 hole. Not the best start obviously, but better than my 0-4 start to last year's playoffs. I incorrectly picked Arizona to upset Carolina, and should have used that upset pick to choose Baltimore over Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, Cincinnati still can't win a playoff (at Indianapolis last week), and Detroit was the victim of some terrible officiating at Dallas).

Looking to improve this week:

SaturdayBaltimore Ravens at New England Patriots
Carolina Panthers at Seattle Seahawks
SundayDallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers
Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos

2014 NFL Picks for Wild Card Weekend

The 2014 NFL regular season is over, but my picks will continue during the playoffs. I ended up finishing the season at a solid 68% after going a respectable 11-5 for Week 17. I correctly picked Houston as my POTW, finishing 15-2 on the season. I was wrong in my 2 upset picks last week, but still finished above .500 at 19-18. All were good for my best totals since I started picking during the 2012 season. I only had 1 week where I picked less than 50%, but countered that with a 13-1-1 and a 14-2 week. Next year I will still try to reach my goal of 70% correct overall, but let's worry about that next year.

Quickly going over my losses before my playoff picks: San Diego was unable to make the playoffs after losing to Kansas City, New England lost a meaningless game against Buffalo, the New York Jets upset Miami, Arizona was unable to upset San Francisco, and Atlanta lost the winner-takes-all division matchup with Carolina. Now for my 2014 Wild Card Weekend playoff picks... keep in mind I was 0-4 last season!

Saturday
Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers
Sunday
Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts
Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys

Upset pick as of 1/2 3pm
