There's been some requests for an easy one, so here you go. Enjoy. And no, it's not about football. Don't let that picture fool you.
</crosswordtalk>I got suckered into joining a fantasy football league again. It's been, what, like six years since I last did something like that. Utterly hated it. Ended up watching the games all wrong. Instead of rooting against teams and/or appreciating the games, I ended up yelling things like "throw the fucking ball to Marvin motherfucking Harrison." Also, the dreaded moment when your fantasy kicker is lining up to kick the winning goal in the game against your real-life team is guaranteed good times. So this year I get to pretend I care about Frank Gore, Matt Ryan and Joseph Addai. Yay, football,
Since I'm a fool and like to make absurd predictions, here's your 12 playoff teams (in no particular order). AFC: Dolphins, Ravens, Colts, Chargers with the wild cards going to the Titans and Patriots. NFC: Redskins, Packers, Falcons and 49ers with the wild cards going to Giants and Eagles. People will ask, no Jets? Absolutely not. Besides, pride goeth before a fall and everybody who's been that "Hard Knocks" show ought to be embarrassed. I didn't pick the Saints because of the Madden Curse. Everybody forgets how lethal that is. Favre's washed up, so no Vikings. The Cowboys schedule is too tough. I don't think the Steelers recover from the rapist's suspension. And that's that. Let me have it in the comments section.
Share the puzzle. New one on Monday.
