    Yinz is here.

    And Everyone said the Boston Red Sox were a shoe in to win the World Series. THere are some other sure things being predicted right around this time of year too…But, i digress.

    Anyhoodles…on to the money losing portion of today’s post. 4/6 last week. 29/57 $750/$1000. Good thing my bookie is a nice guy!

    #2 Clemson at Florida State – Sat, Oct 27, 12:00 PM ET – Clemson is giving 17 on the road at Deone Sander’s house! I always wanted to see that guy play wing on the Rugby Pitch. 17 points, I gotta go with Clemson beating that spread.

    #20 Wisconsin at Northwestern – Sat, Oct 27, 12:00 PM ET – W is giving 4 and beat that spread.

    #9 Florida at #7 Georgia – Sat, Oct 27, 3:30 PM ET – The gators are for real this year. No one saw this coming. They are getting 1 point at Georgia??? yeah, no. The Bulldogs beat this spread.

    #18 Iowa at #17 Penn State – Sat, Oct 27, 3:30 PM ET – Iowa is getting 7 on the road at Happy Valley. The Nittany Lions lost last week and need to save their season. As Macker would say…that makes them the Loins. The Loins need to beat this spread. This will be a great test of team fortitude and coaching. Against my better judgement, the Lions beat this spread.

    #18 Iowa at #17 Penn State – Sat, Oct 27, 3:30 PM ET – Duke is giving 3 at me Beloved Panthers. My Alma Mater need to beat this spread. They will.

    #14 Washington State at #24 Stanford – Sat, Oct 27, 7:00 PM ET – The Cougars??? Ummm…no one saw them being ranked either. They are getting 3 on the road at The Tree. Cougars beat this spread.

    #16 Texas A&M at Mississippi State – Sat, Oct 27, 7:00 PM ET – The Aggies are getting 1 point on the road, they beat this.

    #3 Notre Dame at Navy – Sat, Oct 27, 8:00 PM ET – The Good Catholic Boys are at the Midshipmen and giving 24 points to Navy. Navy, like PITT always plays ND tough, but ND is really, really good this year and Navy stinks. ND remains undefeated but does not beat this spread.

    #6 Texas at Oklahoma State – Sat, Oct 27, 8:00 PM ET – The Longhorns are back and are giving 3 to the Cowboys. There are a few things in college ball that must happen for the universe to be in balance. Notre Dame and Michigan have to be good, and The Longhorns have to be the best team in Texas.

    Let’s go with $100 per game…and I might have to sell one of my kids if i lose big this week.

    Carried over from the last thread:

    when i went to PITT i would always sit at the Mike Ditka bench just outside of the Cathedral of Learning. I was on campus yesterday and had a seat there again and smoked a cigar. It was glorious.45 minutes of perfection…a nice cool fall day, the sun was out, the weeks classes were winding down, and there was a touch football game going on on the quad.

    All i was missing was a few pints with Chris Hitchens at the bar.

      I’m depressed and furious. Not surprised. It’s been open season on Jews since forever. Islam re-weaponized Jew hate. They are probably handing out candy in Paleostine, London, Paris, Dearborn, Michigan, etc.

      Facefuck and Twitter allow anti Jewish diatribes along with Hollywood.
      Synagogues all over Europe have security & barbed wire. Not in Canada will you see a guard with a gun in front of a synagogue. Up here Socialism and no gun rights means pisslam flourishes. Our Foreign Affairs (like State Dept.) people are entrenched Israel haters, no matter who is Prime Minister. Same with the big “public service” unions.

      It’s a continuum. It was only a matter of time. mus-slums are breathing a sigh of relief and victory that a white guy went jihadist.

      Just a reminder that acts of anti-Semitic violence in the United States increased 57% between 2016 & 2017. The largest single year increase ever.

      Wake up.

      The Left spent the week using the mail bomb crimes as a pretext to attack the First Amendment. Today, the terrible Pittsburgh murders to go after the Second Amendment.

      The pathological need to blame Trump (and his supporters) for every perceived wrong is seeping into society like lava thru the fissures of a volcano. I’ve seen tweets today that declare Trump dog whistles to Nazis (Jewish family notwithstanding), that moving the embassy to Jerusalem is behind today’s massacre (from an American Jewess who accused Trump of incest with Ivanka), and now a Brit reporter from the Guardian accosts Salena Zito, the Eric Hoffer of our time and our very own yinzer, of complete responsibility for this because of her profiles of Trump and his supporters.

      https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/10/claim-guardian-reporter-screams-at-salena-zito-at-presser-for-pittsburgh-synagogue-massacre-blames-her-reporting-on-trump-for-shooting/

      The defining characteristic of the liberal mind is a catastrophic inability to handle reality. What we see now is a psychotic break brought on when the ‘reality’ they constructed in their minds can no longer incorporate the reality in the world. They simply self-detonate.

      The problem WE have is the shrapnel

      watching. listening. Had to check to see if anyone I knew back home is impacted by this. (Some of my Jewish friends went to temple in Squirrel Hill because their families started out there before moving over to the goy hoods). So far, doesn’t look like it, no one has heard anything.

      Put the shooter under a microscope. Deconstruct him. Force him to face his thoughts. I am always amazed that this type of fixated person exists.

      We need a sticky word for the liberal cognitive dissonance they are infected with. All these progressive with slippery slope minds and vast paranoia.

      If anybody has such a word, it would be Camille Paglia. I think I’ll go download her book. She’s got a new one out.

      So the mad bomber of democrats is a steroid ripped gay stripper of Phillipino decent (not bagging on Phillinos… good people) and a known anti-semite and Trump hater shot 11 Jews to death in Pittsburg?

      I stopped watching the news, so forgive me if I am behind the curve ball on current events.

      well, that and I think the Red Sox and Dodgers played the longest game in baseball history the other nite or something.

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      oh, god, that interception and run at the 2:20 was glorious! Who is #8 for the All Blacks? He was having way too much fun.


    25. Aussie Infidel
      26 | October 27, 2018 10:03 pm

      The #14 for the ABs who had that perfectly timed interception was none other than the most dangerous outside back in the world Ben Smith. He was playing at #14 last night, as a winger,, but he normally plays either Fullback #15 of outside centre #13. The guy is so strong but is also very agile and has all the requisite skills of an amazing back.

      Brilliant

      🙂

      27 | October 27, 2018 10:05 pm

      @ eaglesoars:
      The #8 a little earlier who scores just after the 2 minute mark was none other than the captain of the ABs, Kearin Reid.


    27. eaglesoars
      28 | October 27, 2018 10:07 pm

      Smith & Reid. Got it, thanks

      That is good. Hey, I had Northwestern to beat the spread and upset Wisconsin.
      I rest my case my honor.
