It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Fyodor's Pro Football Playoff Picks of the Week.

1) The guys who set the lines are professionals. Their job is to make each game look as attractive as possible to everyone. That way they even out the amount of money bet on each side.

Instant translation: The house wins no matter who wins. That's why people get into the gambling business.

2) I am just a fan. I won't even keep track of these picks week to week if it gets too embarrassing.

3) There is no such thing as "inside information". Especially in the pros.

4) If those idiot touts on tv and in the paper were any good, they wouldn't go public with their genius. They'd sit at Harrah's sports book from open to close and then go out and buy $2,000 an hour hookers who dress like high school girls.

5) Gambling is stupid. You cannot win.

That being said, here are my NFL picks for this week.

Saturday 1/6

Kansas City (+7) at Indianapolis
IF the Chiefs can hold the ball, using Larry Johnson to keep Manning off the field, they just might win this game. I'll take the Chiefs and the points.
FINAL: Colts 23 Chiefs 8 - Fyodor loses! (D'oh!)

Dallas (+2.5) at Seattle
Both teams are having defensive problems, so I will go with Hasselbeck over Romo and Alexander over Jones and Barber. Take Seattle to cover.
FINAL: Seahawks 21 Cowboys 20 - Fyodor loses! (Stupid Seahawks.)

Sunday 1/7

NY Jets (+8.5) at New England
I am tempted to take the Patriots in a blowout, but I have a hunch the Jets will keep it close. Take NY and the points.
FINAL: Patriots 37 Jets 16 - Fyodor loses! (Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!)

NY Giants (+7) at Philadelphia
Go-go Garcia! Take the hot hand over the team whose only passion is disdain for their coach. The Eagles will cover at home.
FINAL: Eagles 23 Giants 20 - Fyodor loses! (Stupid Eagles.)

About Me

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
