It was another bad day at the office last weekend. I was able to salvage a late-week rally thanks to a little bingo by Green Bay (over Houston) and Denver (obliterating San Diego in the second half).
But there is nothing to be proud of so far. Just a terrible break on the Thursday game with Jim Harbaugh costing me, and millions of others with considerably more on the line, a cover. To recap, the Niners were favored by eight over Seattle and declined a late safety that would have given them the cover. These are the kinds of bad breaks you get when you are ice cold.
Time to get my act together.
That time is now.
