With the addition of Giancarlo Stanton, I am optimistic the Yankees will win the division. I think they can win it all. I am still hoping for some additional pitchers somewhere along the line. The more...

Pigskin Predictions

The Superbowl was an exciting game. The Eagles were definitely the better team. The Patriots defense was awful. They deserve most of the blame for the loss on the New England side. Tom Brady was very good. He did struggle at the end. He is still the GOAT! Rob Gronkowski may retire as he has too many concussions. At least Julian Edelman will be back next more...

And now we are down to four teams. What great games took place last weekend. Each one I enjoyed better than the previous one. Minnesota’s unbelievable last second play topped them all. I am still in disbelief. I went 3-1 and am 131-66 for the season on my picks. I never saw Jacksonville beating Pittsburgh coming. I knew the Jaguars were good and ha beaten more...

Pigskin Predictions

Every single playoff game last weekend was exciting. I am shocked that Kansas City allowed such a come back by the Tennessee Titans. Atlanta was my upset winning pick. Jacksonville squeaked by Buffalo and it was certainly interesting in New Orleans. I was 3-1 for the week and am 128-65 for the year. This week is very interesting. I picked 1 underdog, but was tempted more...
