so if in the very unlikely event you are able to pick the margin of victory and the very very unlikely event you can pick the total points scored you are awarded as much as you get for picking the winner? i predict a whole lot of zeros coming our way for the latter two picks. anyhow team: eagles mvp: jevon kearse (heh, he's got ARSE in his name) margin: 4 total: 38 disclaimer: less than none of this is likely to happen

You raise an excellent point, grum. I gotta stop making my picks so early in the morning. Of course, it's tempting to leave them as is, since I still have an equal chance of getting either one right. But I'll conform for the sake of the community. Non-stupid Total: 45

Chico! I'm glad you're not taking a break from us too. I promise, no making fucked up comments about your mom here at SpoFi.

Telling Terrell Owens ankle to spread a little wider so Wilma McNabb can make a little more money is prostitution.

lil_brown_bat - your picks don't work out. If your margin is 34 points and the total score is 44 points then what I think you're getting at is that the Pats will win 34 - 10 - which is a margin of 24 points. Just saying is all.

posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 02:37 PM on February 04

WeedyMcSmokey: The score could be 39-5. That's a REAL longshot (safeties!), but doable.

posted by grum@work at 03:55 PM on February 04

It would be funny to see a referee award one of the teams a strange number of points (say, 1) because of some infraction (which I believe is in their power to do), and then be found dead the next day under a giant pile of spread betting stubs. Well, maybe not "funny". But you understand.

posted by DrJohnEvans at 04:20 PM on February 04

No, no - that's pretty funny.

posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 04:29 PM on February 04

Grum - ah the ol' field goal/safety double shot. My bad...... Bold pick lil, much respect.

posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 04:31 PM on February 04

Back in the day, I had an English teacher who used to say, funny ha-ha or funny peculiar? That referee thing would qualify as a little of both. Maybe not dead, just wounded.

Yeah, yeah, NoMich, enough of that. Spofi is an oasis in the otherwise raging sea of my online life. Oh: CFB = Come from behind. I was in a hurry.

Oh, jesus h baldheaded christ. The Pats are going to win it by a score of 34 to 10. Therefore: Pats. Dillon. 24. 44.

CFB = Come from behind That makes much more sense than my guess would've: "The clock hits zero, and McNabb lets it fly long! Mitchell's running, he's running, he's caught itóbut he's ten yards out the back of the end zone! But there's a flag on the playówait, it's a Canadian flag! The ref has declared Canadian football rules in effect, therefore the end zones go on forever! Eagles win! Eagles win!"
