Here's the thing. I'm watching one of these shows on the Cooking Channel featuring food trucks. There's a Scottish expat making fish and chips; in a thick brogue he somewhat wearily explains his irritation with Americans who habitually order a side of tartar sauce: "tartar sauce is basically gherkins." That's this blog. I claim no particular insight, no revelation. If you enjoy the flavor, great, but this blog is basically gherkins.

I Pick Every NFL Game - Week 14

Thursday, December 10, 2009

95-95-2

Win and I'm in the fantasy football playoffs - and a decision has to be made right now - Roethlisberger or Flacco?  It's a weather motivated conundrum; if not for the weather in Cleveland I'd just say Ben.  But I think I have the advantage with my matchup, and a fairly certain moderate game from Flacco may be worth passing up Ben's upside to avoid a TD free windswept evening.  I haven't decided.  I'm leaning Ben.  Fortune favoring the brave and whatnot; generally, I avoid gripping about the weather. (edit - well, that was error)

First week without the burden of winning college games (19 over .500 the final total for the regular season, 5 over .500 in my weekly locks, and a contest win that will probably find its way into this week's Tendown) so now we're headed over .500 for good in the NFL.
