Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Nah - I got this. Panthers just scored defensive TDs on the Vikings on back-to-back plays. Yeah.

And I picked Vikes by 7-9 points. Now the Patriots are about to beat up on the Cards, killing my pick in that game... Cards still have a better chance than Vikes I think.

I survived.

After five hours on 75S I have migrated from the dumb north to the less dumb quasi-north.

But still dumb.

Giants atop the NFC East. Raise your hand if you predicted that so I know you're a liar.

Anything is possible in that division

I did pick em to win today, but by 7-9 points, so I only get half credit.

The Vikings game is insane now.

Once the draft position is wrecked, I might as well hope for a playoff slot and some wild trick plays. We're clearly not getting a new QB, HC, or GM this year. Crossing fingers this is the team coming together and a few more pieces will keep the improvement going.

Of course, in five weeks, the Cowboys will be the obvious winners for 2021.

Next year. Next year is definitely the Cowboys' year.

Kudos. My plan for this week had been to do 300+, then the weather hit and that was that.

Stopped watching Chiefs-Bucs and it went to 17-0. Started watching again and the Bucs marched down the field. Noping out of that again.

I gather you all are talking a per litre price right? Cause if that is per gallon, even little US gallons, that is so cheap to be almost free.
