Yes, oh dear god yes. I can not get here soon enough.
If College Football was not starting this weekend I would need Animal Control to put me down since I would be feral.
Ever since June I have been reading what ever I could get my grubby little hands on glorious football. You name it: pro, college, betting and fantasy.
Here is a list of what I have read. To show you why the NFL should have a restraining order out on me and how shallow my life is:
Pro Football Weekly – NFL Preview & the Summer issues of Pro Football Weekly
SportingNews – NFL, College & Fantasy Previews
2007 Pro Football Prospectus & paying for it Player Projection Program
Athlon’s NFL & College Previews
The Goldsheet College and Pro Preview
The Marc Lawrence Playbook – Football Handicappers Yearbook
Lindy’s NFL Preview
Phil Steele College Preview, all 6 of the regional preview Mags and Pro Football (which I got for free, I should have gotten it for the money I laid out)
Street & Smith Pro Football Preview (the only one that has a CFL preview, so go heavy on the Argos this season)
So all in all I have laid out probably about $200 bucks. Yes, I am a loser. I just can help myself. I love collecting these things I have been doing this for a while. I have some going back to ’89. When I finally got a grown-up job in ’96 it became an addiction.
Secondly, I have always wanted to see if I could be football handicapabler instead of just a dude who gets park really close to things. For all the gambling stuff I look at, I don’t do a lot of betting. Other than $5 a week office pool and a couple of squares at the Super Bowl, the last bet I made on a football game was September of last year. I know I have droned on about it in the past, but this fascinates me to no end. I have never had a desire to bet other sports, well except for Snooker and Monster Trucks. Hey if I am in Vegas I’ll throw something on whatever going, but betting the Hawks to beat the Nets by 4 on a Tuesday in February holds no allure.
The E! True Hollywood Story: The Great Spacecoaster
Here’s a preview:
“Just as things seem to be going great, Gary Gnu was tumbling into $10,000 a week, hooker and blow binge that he thought it would last forever, or till Thursday. Sadly Gary’s love of the White Lady and Ladies of the Night came all crashing down when Gary was arrested in Guam after using his shrimp fork to eat soup while driving. The authorities found .02% blood in his cocaine, but the cops and the world was rocked when they opened the trunk of his Suzuki Sidekick. hookers midget jugglers, alpaca’s, Rollo’s and Dick Cavet in drag…..
