NFL Predictions 2012: Week 10

Sport

It was a streaky week for me. I was 12-2 straight up (88-44 overall) and that works. I started 8-2 against the spread only to finish 8-6 (71-58-3 overall) but started 4-5 on the over/under and closed strong to reach 8-6 (63-66-2 overall). It’s very disappointing to be below water on the totals and I can’t quite figure it out. Moving on.

NFL Predictions 2012: Week 9

Sport

 

Last week was pretty uneven for me. I was a disappointing 9-5 straight up (76-42 overall, 64.4%). The lone bright spot was going 10-4 against the spread (63-52-3 overall). I was a dismal 3-10-1 on the over/under (55-60-2 overall) and still lead Vegas by a little.

NFL Predictions 2012: Week 8

Sport

 Maybe Microsoft Word bugs should screw up my picks more often. I went 12-1 straight up (67-37 overall). I nudged out a 7-6 week against the spread (53-48-3 overall) and also went 7-6 on the over/under (52-50-2 overall) to stay ahead of Vegas.

NFL Predictions 2012: Week 7

Sport

A wacky week, especially after the midway point, really did me in. It’s rare I lose straight up like I did at 6-8 (55-36 overall) but obviously it does happen and it hurt to miss on the final 7 results that came in. My lone bright spot was going 8-5-1 against the spread (46-42-3 overall). I lost on the over/under at 6-8 (45-44-2 overall) and in general need to get better against Vegas.

Topic icon

 You've noticed, by now that I have "topic icons" for each of the topics.  The topic icons incorporate the smiley face from the Small.to logo.  What do you think the logo for Small.to games should look like?

New Directions (and Cleanin' Up)

Other Stuff
  1.  I like the idea of the "One of these things" game, so much, that I've created a new topic for it.  "Small.to Games" is where this and any other, similar games can be offered up. Have an idea for a challenge you want to pose to the Small.to collective?  Post it to Small.to Games.
  2. I think that some of the topics over there (Fantasy Sports, LUSA for those who care) are ready for full-time mothballing.  Unfortunately, I didn't build an archival function for "topics".  What I plan to do: export all of the stories in each topic, into a single HTML or text file, and then delete the topic outright.  Authors (mostly norcalfella) who've posted in those topics, let me know if you have a better idea.

NFL Predictions 2012: Week 6

Sport

I think I finally had a week I can be proud of. Certainly straight up going 12-2 (49-28 overall) was great. Even better I was 10-4 against the spread (38-37-2 overall) and even being a flat 6-7-1 on the over/under (39-36-1 overall) didn’t bum me out too much.

One of these things is just like the others

 Inspired by KFOG's "My Three Songs" and a recent Facebook post, I think I'll start a new trivia game, here on Small.to.   [Feel free to join in, and submit some of your own.]

I'll present a list of "things".  In my mind, they have a common, unifying characteristic or element.  Your job?  In the comments, figure out what they have in common.

NFL Predictions 2012: Week 5

Sport

Life was not too bad for me last week. I returned to double digits in straight up wins at 10-5 (37-26 overall) and went just south against the spread at 7-8 (28-33-2 overall). Most importantly I did my thing on the over/under going 9-6 (33-29-1 overall). Hopefully it will get better and better for me from here on out.
