Week 16 Football Picks - Ep. 62

12/6/2018
More
Mike, Zach, and Shawn convene to make their predictions for the coming week in football. This time we find Zach squarely in the lead... [wait, is this right? Are you sure? I really don't want to have to print a correction... Oooookayyy...] With Zach inexplicably in the lead it really goes to show that it is truly anybody's game, and this week, that game is baseball as Mike makes one of his epic cross-sports analogies. Also, in an effort to retake his dynasty, Shawn has been flipping through...

Week 15 Football Picks - Ep. 60

The boys are glad that that insipid lens slinger isn't actually part of the contest after he bested them all last week, but they continue unbowed and undeterred. This week Mike continues his tradition of mixing sporting metaphors by comparing Alabama to Tiger Woods, Shawn licks his wounds and starts picking his line to regain the lead, and Zach sticks to his guns in spite of overwhelming evidence that (at least) one of his picks is ill-advised.

Week 13 Football Picks - Ep. 58

11/15/2018
More
Holy Cow! Mike has caught up to Shawn "The King" Suchy and now they are tied for the lead! But this week, Mike's own better judgement has caught up to him and he has to pick against his own team to maintain his momentum. Zach has no such judgement, and predictably makes a homer pick, but could this strategy make this a true three-way battle for the lead? (shakes Magic 8 Ball) ..."signs point to no."

Week 12 Football Picks - Episode 57

11/8/2018
More
Mike takes a bye week and leaves Shawn and Zach alone on the mics. If Mike was here though he would likely compare them to a pair of playful mice. But don't worry, he did phone his picks in. And since he has whittled down Shawn's lead substantially we're all paying close attention to make sure those picks don't somehow disappear. Also, with one of our local high school teams moving forward in the playoffs the boys (Keith included) can honestly say that they are all rooting for the "Purple...
