LMS XV WEEK FOURTEEN - 6433 OUT, 1 DQ'D, 195 IN

Posted: 2008-12-05

Working hard to get my fill,
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice,
Just one more time.
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues.

The icicle lights were strung up around the VAN this week. Readied plans to light the Chanukah Menorah were in place. Inside, THE ZOOKEEPER was knocking back on the grape ...

... celebrating the 75th anniversary of the ratification of the 21st amendment, checking his hooker raffle number holdings on Craigslist, listening to Lil Wayne, and just generally readying himself for Eid al-Adah party plans. Four weeks to go and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Cages.

Welcome to December's rare air, still caged ones. The Gregorian calendar has now reached culmination month and still somehow you remarkable pigskin prognosticators remain true to the quest for legendary football genius. 195 animals celebrate early days in the month of lapis lazuli and holly from inside the cages, while 6,434 of their lesser talented companions gaze longingly from their second place spot in the cheap seats of DON'T KNOW JACK SCHITT. Many have traveled the pathways of the WORLD'S GREATEST FOOTBALL POOL over the years, but few get to see the sights of the promised land from this wintry high ground vision that now stands before your anxious, still extending grasp. Four weeks to go, animals. Don't stumble now. Every step is a bold one. Every mis-step is a fatal one. Choose wisely, but, above all, just win, baby, win.

This week's numbers:

6433 OUT, 1 DQ'D, 195 IN. 52 TITANS, 51 CARDINALS, 41 COLTS, 19 BRONCOS, 10 PATRIOTS, 9 LIGHTNING BOLTS, 5 PACKERS FROM THE FROZEN TUNDRA OF LAMBEAU FIELD, 3 VIKINGS, 2 J-E-T-S BRETTS BRETTS BRETTS, 2 NEW YORK FOOTBALL GIANTS, and one lone wolf RAVEN.

PICK OF THE WEEK easily goes to that lone wolf Raven cage occupied this week by SYXPACK with a gutsy, take it all down, pick against the Native Americans. Good luck, SYXPACK. Your personal bail out package awaits without needing congressional approval.

That's all for this week. RIP Odetta. Don't forget to load up on LMS 2009 Stocking Stuffer Gift Certificates for those hard to buy for animals on your list. They're way better than a stick for a toy, and Mailmen love them. Peace. Out.
