Third second place finish in four weeks, and I'm still only a Sassy Squirrel oopsie from being in last place. I must've dug my early hole really deep....

I had a good week, but one of the ones I got right was picking the Colts to upset the Bills...upsetting me in the process. It seemed obvious...an average at best O-line missing a couple of starters, allowing a clear path to Josh Allen, a defense, shaky against elite running backs, up against Jonathan Davis and missing an important piece of the defense...I saw this coming a mile away.

So yeah, I picked the Colts and got it right.


yay.


I feel so dirty.

I face a similar situation when I team I don't like (Steeler, Ravens...) is playing a prime time game. I don't want them to win as a fan , BUT I HAVE 15 POINTS ON THEM...

Dilemmas.
