Many people ask me what the secret is to being such a successful prognosticator of football games picks. While I must admit, it is flattering that people take notice that I have only lost 3 games since 1994 (Never pick Jake Plummer. EVER!), the secret to being a highly successful predictor of football games is to lie.
“I have only lost 3 games since 1994”. This is preposterous. Obviously it is completely untrue. It’s been since 1997.
And there you see the second tip. Lie again.
I’ve lost 5 games.
Since Monday. Which is difficult, since there has only been one game, and I picked the Saints so hard it counted as five losses.
So there you have it, the cat is out of the bag, as should be obvious these picks are for entertainment purposes only, and if you should use them as a basis of gambling away your hard earned money, well, you are just AWESOME.
