We had enough of a turnout at football this morning that I was relegated mostly to doing what I do best, playing the lines. I couldn't be blocked effectively when I rushed the QB, and I gave my QB all day to throw. The highlight on defense was probably when the 3 rushers completely collapsed the pocket and arrived at the QB at the same time. The QB ended up on the ground, where we yanked the flags off him. My highlight on offense was a pancake block: the defender was chasing my QB full-speed to the right. He was completely focused on the QB and didn't see me at all. I ran over between them and lowered my shoulder. The defender went flopping and rolling onto the ground in the other direction, allowing my QB to throw a TD. I did cut my lip later in the game when I took a forearm to the chin from a big, strong guy, but I don't mind. I love getting physical out there on Sunday mornings!

I seriously doubt that you are unaware of the outcome of the Chargers game. The people in this town are starting to get just a little crazy. They are seriously talking about winning the Super Bowl already.

I hope even more than usual that they can pull it off, since I win $1850 if they do.

I hope you don't lose anything if they don't.

Just my initial $20 investment.

It was supposed to be a $30 investment, but my friend in Vegas didn't place the bets properly. I asked him to place $10 on the Chargers making the playoffs, $10 on the Chargers winning the division, and $10 on the Chargers winning the AFC and advancing to the Super Bowl. if he had place the bets correctly, I'd be practically a lock for the first two bets. Instead, he only placed two bets for me, $10 on the Chargers to win the AFC, and $10 on the Chargers to win the Super Bowl. The first bet has a potential payoff of $600, and the second $1250.

When I placed the bets, right after the draft when everyone (including me) was convinced the Chargers would be the worst team in football, I figured placing the bets was a win-win situation. If I lose, it's not like I'm really going to miss $20 or $30; and if I win, that's quite a return on my investment!

Agreed. If you win, you can afford to attend a few games at the newly inflated gate price, too.
