Does anyone drink water at Thanksgiving? I’m curious.
I’m a totally unhealthy person but I do manage to drink about 60 ounces of the clear stuff per day (less on the weekends if you’re going to give me a hard time about it).
Still, is there a meal that makes water seem less appealing?
Well, I’m doing a Pick 12 this weekend because we have a legit five-day football schedule in front of us. Yeah, the NFL games on Thursday mostly suck but there’s interesting games on for a majority of the weekend.
I also have an excuse to show off 12 pictures of Hooters girl Lauren Kosier. Plus, I can improve to 42-41-1 with an unbeaten record this long weekend.
Yeah, true. Lauren’s got a better chance of joining me at that bar I’ll go to inside a mall on Thursday and Friday night than accomplishing that feat.
She’s one tall drink of water I wouldn’t mind seeing at Thanksgiving Dinner.
LAST WEEK: 3-3 OVERALL: 30-41-1
DENVER +7 over New York Giants (Thurs., 8:20 p.m., NFL Network)
I thought it was against NFL policy to throw a watchable game out there on Thanksgiving. Who done messed up and scheduled this here game? (Yes, I wrote that all after Week 5 … but this still is a pretty damn good game that will get me to go out and watch tomorrow night.)
COLORADO STATE -3 over Wyoming (Fri., 2 p.m., The Mtn.)
A three-win team is favored at home against a team fighting for their bowl life? Vegas knows what they’re doing.
AUBURN +10 over Alabama (Fri., 2:30 p.m., CBS)
Alabama will win this game by between eight and 13 points … and between 5:40 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. EST.
WEST VIRGINIA pick ‘em over Pittsburgh (Fri., 7 p.m., ESPN2)
Pittsburgh is the worst 9-1 team to ever play in a BCS conference. As always, no stats whatsoever to back that up.
Clemson -3 over SOUTH CAROLINA (Sat., noon, ESPN)
To be honest, I needed to find a 12th game to pick and didn’t want to rob you of another picture of Lauren.
CONNECTICUT -13.5 over Syracuse (Sat., noon, Big East Network)
Connecticut is no joke at 5-5. Really. The word “Connecticut” in and of itself isn’t very funny at all.
Florida State +24 over FLORIDA (Sat., 3:30 p.m., CBS)
Tim Tebow’s last game in The Swamp will be close enough midway through the third quarter for Tebow to make a big “memorable” play. This probably will be a gutty 1-yard TD run.
KENTUCKY +3 over Tennesseee (Sat., 7 p.m., ESPNU)
The ‘Cats haven’t topped the ‘Teers since ’84. Most apostrophes ever in a sentence. Yeah, they’re due.
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES -9 over Washington Redskins (Sun., 1 p.m., FOX)
No one can convince me that the Eagles and Redskins don’t actually play each other seven times a year.
Seattle Seahawks vs. ST. LOUIS RAMS under 42.5 (Sun., 1 p.m., FOX)
Let’s get in the holiday spirit with a little help from our pal Mr. Grinch: Stink. Stank. Stunk. Seattle. St. Louis.
Jacksonville Jaguars +3 over SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (Sun., 4:05 p.m., CBS)
I remember in the sixth grade my buddy Jon always would call the 49ers the 69ers and I’d have no clue what he was talking about but I’d laugh anyway. Whatever. He had an unlimited stash of Diet Mountain Dew at his house. I wasn’t going to mess that sitch up.
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS -3 over New England Patriots (Mon., 8:30 p.m., ESPN)
I’ll be sad to see the long weekend over but this is a nice treat for making it back to work or unemployment on Monday.
