There’s No ‘I’ In Team, Plus Playoff Picks

Reach for the sky...

Reach for the sky…

To be fair, there’s no “Team” in “I” either.
This is what the scholars call Freedom of Association, and once upon a time it was your birth right.
But no, let’s all pretend we’re First String on Team Humanity, because what the Hell.
Anyway.
It’s Thursday, unbelievably, though I hold out hope this sad state of affairs is just a conspiracy of Gregorian calendar peddlers — it’s really just supposed to be Saturday every day into perpetuity. Of course, we have that damn thermonuclear reactor in the sky that demands a more constraining, cyclical system of order.
So be it.
If the sun never set on the British Empire, doesn’t that sort of imply that it never shone on Chamberlain’s ass?
Or is it arse?
I hate Europeans, who appear to me, culturally, as merely smudged, poorly colored-in Americans, with their shitty food, shittier “football” and their adamance on using the same language to say things differently.
The gall.
Anyway, no, I haven’t been drinking but I have been suffering a bit with the fever.
What of it?

    Doing well with your picks so far. I’d rather see IND beat NE. Watch our for the flu. Damned bug is killing toddlers and elderly around here.

      Yeah, I’m having a good year with that kind of thing for once.
      It’s been awhile.
      I’d also like to see Indy beat the Pats, but there are two teams Luck hasn’t come close to beating so far in his career — the Chargers and the Pats. I know they’re vulnerable and old, that’s why I think Indy covers, but I have a sick feeling that the talking heads called it right with their Seahawks v Patriots Superbowl.

      Watch our for the flu. Damned bug is killing toddlers and elderly around here

      Yeah, same here.
      It hasn’t been pretty but I think I’m passed the worst of it.
