Pick'em 2017

Folbies Pick’em 2017 Weekly Write Up – Week 9

Tomorrow night Russ Wilson and the footlongs head to Arizona where they will do battle with the Drew Stanton led Cardinals. People forget Drew Stanton started the “Average white guy from Michigan State who is somehow an NFL QB” train. Following in his footsteps the almighty Brian Hoyer, Connor Cook, and Kirk Cousins. Four guys who could just as easily be your mechanic, your dentist, or maybe your cousin. Instead they are in the NFL and we are here getting fatter and balder. Anyway, get your picks in for the game.

The Week 8 title was captured by Thank You Bobby (Bob) formerly known as #BroadRippleBobby who was perhaps the best Bobby there was. For those unfamiliar, BRB was a force to be reckoned with as he put together a few great years of all-conference play – sweeping girls off their feet as a man about town. A true cocksman, BRB is responsible for several floods in the Indianapolis area between 2012-2016. However, Bob is more than just a former ladies man, he is a humanitarian and friend.

In the spring of 2013 as I moved out of my room across the hall from his, he gave me a pair of khaki shorts to wear. They didn’t fit him and  I was meeting the parents of a female later that evening and all my nicer clothes were packed. Whether or not a handjob was received in those shorts cannot be confirmed nor denied. However, being a good person, I did inform Bob of a possible incident. Since the shorts didn’t fit him, and I wasn’t driving back to Chicago with crusty shorts, we decided it would be best they found a new home in the dumpster. The next morning Bob’s wonderful father came to help him move out… “Hey, do you have a my khaki shorts? I think mom put them in your laundry by mistake a while back and I can’t find em anywhere…” Needless to say, neither of us directed Bob’s father to the dumpster out back. Apologies to Mr. Bob’s Dad and RIP to your shorts, they went out in a blaze of glory.

Looking Back: Bye week and no one got suspended or arrested. That is a plus.

Moving Forward: Josh Gordon is back and going to play QB, CB, WR, TE, and LT. Hooray for us!

I will be in Shanghai next week, so there may or may not be a write up. Whoever wins will still get paid but may be a little delayed. Deal with it.

Good luck and thanks for playing!
