NFL Week 8: Yes we are still playing Baseball Edition

So there was some killer stuff on the site this week, what with everyone justifiably going bananas over Blade Runner 2049, but did you get a look at Faststeady’s piece on Omaha Hi-Lo? I read it twice despite not being involved in a real competitive poker game against either man or machine since the heyday […]

NFL Week 7: You Knew What You Were Getting In For Edition

Hey, it happens. Gotta handle the swings, that’s part of the process. Remember, a very famous man of the cloth once said that a mans gotta make at least one bet a day, else he could be walking around lucky and never know it. We’ll be alright. Now, as is custom with most football gambling […]

NFL Week 6: The Oppression Is Only In Your Mind Edition

NFL Week 6: The Oppression Is Only In Your Mind Edition This just in: Mike Ditka sucks. Mike Ditka not only sucks, Mike Ditka is an archetype of suck. Mike Ditka is a caricature of a sort of outdated, humorless hard-ass father figure exclusively in the eyes of people who hate their fathers. He was, […]

NFL Week 5: Yes, it’s already Week 5 Edition

Rats in the cellar! The dreaded double deuce! Dot cinco goose-eggs. The worst of it is that I thought we were rolling early on, too. We nailed the Saints v. Dolphins game in London, even predicting the ugly nature of the whole affair. I didn’t see it obviously, because no one not addicted to cocaine […]

NFL Week 4: Liars and Swearers Edition

Words fail me. There was a time when taking a knee meant taking a knee (see featured image) I’d like to think I’m not easily taken off guard. At this point I am fully aware that the President of the United States possesses the same temper and capacity for restraint as Poison Idea. I’ve regarded […]

NFL Week 3: Best Friends In Love

NFL Week 3: Best Friends In Love Hey look! Reader mail! Dear J.J.: In reading your prior column, in which you went a very respectable 2-1, I was struck by your assertion that the Kareem Hunts of the world outnumber the Tyreek Hills, perhaps both inside and outside of the game of football. Do you […]

NFL Week 2: What Happened? Hillary Clinton Edition

NFL Week 2: What Happened? Hillary Clinton Edition Damn you goons! I asked you last week to be decent to one another, at least in terms of how your behavior affects the game we all love. Yet, an hour or so after the column goes up, here comes video of that dumbass Dr. Pepper Guy […]

NFL Season Week One: Mother Nature’s Name Is IRMA Edition

NFL Season Week One: Mother Nature’s Name Is IRMA Edition They say if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. Well, truth be told I do love gambling on football and writing about it. I have to level with you though. Making a bunch of jokes after a […]

NFL Pre-Season 3: Mayweather v. Mcgregor Edition

Sweet Mother of Pete did you read that Deadspin takedown of Vox by way of SB Nation? Allegations of profiting off of an army of exploited workers? I dunno, my ignorance is bliss but that seems downright rude to me. I am officially against it! Now, as hard as this may be to believe, the […]

The 2017-2018 NFL Preseason Notes: Gang Green and Radiation in Your Cheese Edition

Ruthless regrets to inform you that recently-installed NFL pick columnist J.J. Duquesne (b. Jay Jay Duquesne, Pangaea, Me Decade) is no more, having gone into absolute, unmitigated shock this week when informed that we are now flirting with a nuclear war. This is in spite of repeatedly being told that North Korea would not be […]
