We Killed It, Redskins Win, and Other Stuff

A nice weekend of prognosticating for yours truly. 4 road ATS wins, 3 of which were barking dogs, is your basic nice Sunday afternoon. We advised to consider the Bills and Texans as money line plays, and would've nailed both of those had it not been for a last second Jets score. Our NFL record ATS for the year is a respectable 23-15-1.

The Redskins rebounded nicely after that Monday night ass whuppin' they took from Philly, with a hard fought win at Tennessee. Dominating the Titans statistically, including an almost 2:1 ratio in time of possession, the O-line looked better, as did McNabb, who only let a few passes get away.

With 6 games to go, we feel the Redskins are still a long shot to make the playoffs. They're 2 games behind division leader Philadelphia, and there are currently 4 "wild card" teams with better records. Realistically, the Redskins probably need to win 5 of their last 6 games, and also get some help from others. In any case, a 7-9 or 8-8 record would be a marked improvement from last year's 4-12 debacle.

Greg Oden has been put on the shelf once again by the Portland Trailblazers. For those keeping score at home, that's 4 seasons (technically) and only 82 games played for the once upon a time phenom from Ohio State.

If one must shed tears over this story, please do so for the basketball fans in Portland, and not for Mr. Oden. "Big Greg" has earned a little over $19 million for those 82 games he's played, and he's got a dong in his pants that legally has to be registered in 37 of the 50 states.

Speaking of the NBA, guess which team is currently 8-6, injured, vertically challenged, and their coach is on the "hot seat"....

Charlie "Harper" Sheen update: This dude is a classic. So Sheen was involved in that hotel trashing meltdown in NYC last month. Since then, his separation has been made formal, and the hooker, errrr, lady friend that was with him that night, has claimed that she was choked and later held hostage in the hotel bathroom. Sheen has since filed a suit against the woman for extortion. Stay tuned for further details, but in the meantime, enjoy another classic moment from the best show on TV.
