i intended to post my picks on saturday so you could see them before the games but saturday ended up being busier than i anticipated. i had to work until 12:30 and then i babysat until about 5. i ended up babysitting two toddlers and two infants. it was fun. i can’t wait to be a mom.
okay so my picks started out pretty well. i did pretty decent in the college games. i sucked it up pretty bad in the nfl. ugh. and there were a few games that i changed my picks on and i shouldn’t have. from now on, i will go with my gut. there are about 130 people playing in this picks group. there are 7 people that i know who are playing: scott, kelli, kesha, lori, dixie, stacie and brian. the goal is to make it in the top 5 each week but also to beat these 6 people. not exactly how it turned out this first week. right now i’m tied with 7 other people for 111th place. really? ugh. stupid nfl. ok. listed below were the games we had to choose from. the teams in bold are who i picked to win. the teams that are crossed through are who lost.
akron vs. syracuse (i originally picked akron and changed it. ugh.)
miami (oh) vs. michigan
connecticut vs. temple
georgia tech vs. boston college
