Football, Baseball and Stuff

Just for Bayne.....below are the results of my Week 3 Football Picks.  Ugh.  It isn't pretty. 


Buffalo - I lost my 15, tyvm

Tennessee - I won 12

New Orleans - I won 11

Philly - I lost 13

Cleveland - I won 7

Carolina - I won 8

Cincy - I lost 10

Oak - I lost 3

San Diego - I won 16 *whew*

St. Louis - I won 9

Seattle - I won 2

GB - I won 6

TB - I won 1

Indy - I won 14

Wash - I won 5

For those keeping track I got 91 points out of a possible 136 and 11 winners out of 16.  I know 11 out of 16 doesn't sound terrible but I lost a lot (ty duggle for that lesson on 'a lot') of my big numbers.  I didn't even bother to add up Waffles total for the week yet but I know he has me beat.  He hit a lot of his big numbers.  The biatch.

Speaking of being beaten.....

The sox lost again last night and the yankees did too.  The one time I wanted the yanks to win....it figures.  This means that TB and the sox are now tied for the wild card race.  This isn't good.  The sox have zero momentum to help them through.  Beckett pitched last night - we need to get wins when our ace is on the mound of they will be hanging up their cleats very soon.  2 games left of regular season.

While we're on the subject of baseball, The Phillies won last night, which was their 100th win of the season.  Good for them I suppose.  I'm not a major fan of the NL but 100 wins for Phillie is a rarity and should be mentioned.  Last time it happened was in the 1870's.  (okay it was the 1970's...whatevah)

Lastly, I need your opinion on something.  I've been thinking about changing the look of this blog so it looks more like its content....so it looks more like a poker blog.  My question to you is, do you think I should leave it just as it is or change it to something like






I wonder if the examples above look a little more professional that the blog  you're reading here.  Sugar Bear was insistent that I keep the good old original one.  "Mom, you know I hate your blog but don't change it.  I like the kind of purple color". 

That's one person's opinion but he doesn't like change.  Ever.

Although changing the template would probably ten years off my life but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Play smart.

Please stop rooting for the Yankees. It's not working out!

Josie said...

Done. It makes me feel dirty anyway.

I vote for keeping your blog the way it is. The other examples seem too bright and busy for m.

Josie said...

Hmmm it would be easier that way.

Isn't all that flash enticing though?

It's up to you... I don't particularly like the examples you posted.. but I see your going for some bling.

I have the feeling if you decide to change things I will be getting calls for weeks.. :).

Josie said...

Waffles Feintstein!

I agree that none of the examples are perfect, but they show the general direction of where I was thinking of going.

And you'll help me! You said so yourself! :)

My question to you is, do you think I should leave it just as it is or change it

Go for it, but tone down some of the examples you showed is/

Josie said...


What is this "tone down" term you speak of? It's not part of my vocab but I'll try.....I mean Waffles will try. You don't think I'd be doing this myself do you?

I guess if I had to pick one of the three it would be the middle one. The others are a bit much...

WhisperingWriter said...

I also hate change but I decided to pay someone to do my blog. I liked the outcome.

Josie said...

yeah - they were just for ideas....not great feedback on them tho.

Josie said...

Ooooo excellent idea Amber!
