So we were going to pick the games tomorrow, but Decrepit reminded me that there was a game scheduled for tonight, involving da Bearz. This is not a drill. This is real. Really real.
Bear Down Chicago da Bearz (+3) vs. San Francisco Singletarys. Well, this should be kinda interesting. I think Mike Singletary should quit the 49ers, sign up with da Bearz and suit up at middle linebacker. And da Bearz should hire Mike Ditka and Buddy Ryan back so they won't be as dull as they are right now. Back then, they were really good and even made music videos. Bad music videos, but music videos nonetheless. These Thursday games are just a way for the NFL to make more money, with the exception of the Thanksgiving games. As if the NFL doesn't have enough money already. Niners 40, da Bearz 17.
Whoo boy, Gino's not going to like that pick, Seabiscuit! But it may not be wrong. Da Bearz aren't necessarily as dysfunctional as some other teams in the division, but they are pretty dysfunctional. I'm not sure what's worse -- getting beat by the Tampa Bay Creamsicles or getting your butt handed to you on your home field by the Cardinals. Either way, not good. The 49ers are not a great team, either, but they'll be better tonight. San Francisco 27, da Bearz 20.
We'll be back tomorrow with more normal games than this one, which is not exactly a good time slot if you ask me!
