By the time next week’s This Week’s Picks is posted we’ll either have a new President- Elect (Willard Mittimon Romney Esq.IV) or we’ll still have President Forward (Look, I called it a terrorist act in the month of September. Geez, what do you want? I killed Bin Laden.) It looks like, at the moment, presently, at press time, right now, that either Romney or Obama will win the election. But, you never know. Ross Perot could still come out of nowhere and win. All I know, is that whoever wins,
Americans will join together and work for the betterment of our country there will be a lot of Americans mad.
This Week’s Picks!
Big Bad Dawgs vs. Old Mess: As many have commented, the Manis Jinx (where I pick a team to win and they lose—by the way, this happened to Wisconsin-Whitewater last week) caused Florida to lose to Georgia. According to this theory, I was part of a diabolical metaphysical plot to pick Florida to win, thus infecting them with the Manis Jinx and causing them to lose. It doesn’t explain all those other years I picked UGA to win and they lost, but it is an interesting theory. In any event, The Ole Miss Used To Be Rebels will be coming to Athens. They wish there was a jinx. Georgia Wins.
I wasn't the only one that missed it.
Wrecked vs. Turtles: Georgia Tech travels to Maryland because frankly it has nothing better to do this weekend. Lord, what a stinky year for the Bees. The AD just quit to take a job at Clemson. Maryland, on the other hand, has some of the worst looking uniforms on the planet. But, as the kid said, I like turtles. Maryland wins.
Turkeys vs. The U: At one time, this would have been a very important game. Virginia Tech is having an off year. Miami wins.
Ags vs. Other Bulldogs: Last week, Mississippi State walked into the buzz saw that is Alabama and found out that they’re not quite at the upper eulachon yet. Texas A&M has a big hoop de do quarterback, Johnny Angel/Football who totally destroyed Auburn (like that was a big deal). It is going to be interesting to see how the Upright Walking Maroon Dogs handle The Aggies. It will be close. Mississippi State isn’t Auburn, but Texas A&M isn’t Troy either. Texas A&M wins.
Why does he wear a shirt and pants, but no shoes?
Bamy vs. Ellesyou: As much as I hate to say this, Bama is just on another level this year. I’m not sure anyone on this planet can beat them. Bama wins.
Why? Why? Why would anyone do this?
Georgia Southern vs. Appalachian State: This is the game of the year for Georgia Southern because Appalachian State is their numero uno rival. A treat in this year's contest will be when all of the students stand as one at halftime and sing the Georgia Southern Alma Mater (“B-double e-double r-u-n Beer Run! B-double e-double r-u-n Beer Run. All we need is a ten and a five-er. A car, a key, and a sober driver”). The Eagles are Number One in the FCS standings. They’ll win. Georgia Southern wins.
The President of Appalachian State University
The Division Three Game of The Week: Wheaton vs. North Central College: I’m including this game only because the newly named President of North Central College sat in a couple of Sunday School lessons I taught a long,long time ago and didn’t make fun of me despite the fact that his brain is way bigger than mine. Congratulations Dr. Hammonds! North Central wins.
