Dad’s Corner: Roll On Red Sox

It seems the only thing I have been right about lately is The Red Sox being the team to beat. The sentimental favorite is Colorodo.  Everyone loves Cinderella.

Through DH I learned there are 2 possible new football leagues forming. Needless to say, I am old enough to remember the American Football league merging into The NFL becoming the AFC and the old NFL still keeping the name, and the former teams becoming the NFC. Numerous leagues tried to form and all have failed since. The closest was The World Football League, which got numerous older players like Hall Of Famer Larry Czonka to join. If my memory is correct, this lasted for about 3 years before they decided to stop losing millions per year.

I am not going to make any picks this week. I have been terrible with the Colleges and 50-50 with the Pros. Next week I will give my pro picks. This weeks college picks are from my son, DH. He can’t possibly do any worse then I have done lately.

College Football: Mississippi + 17.5 Virginia – 4 South Carolina – 3 and California + 3.

In closing, Dolphins fans: what else can go wrong when you are 0 and 7 and lost your only possible all pro (Ronnie Brown) this year?  Maybe the Dolphin players and coaches are thinking of staying in London. Till next week, be safe out there.
