Only one dozen of the 105 entries remain, and this week they chose 3 different teams to lose.
As a New York Giants football fan, last Sunday night was rough for me. One of the most difficult parts of that frustrating and tough loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys, was two terrible calls by the officials. On Thursday, the NFL told the team that they did make mistakes in important calls in the game. This only adds to the frustration of a very imperfect game.

Hi! It’s me. I’ve been watching sports and not sharing my thoughts on it. For the past three NFL seasons, I’ve run suicide pools. These are great for people who want to care about games they otherwise wouldn’t/be more involved in football viewing, but not as involved as a fantasy team requires.
This season, I’m running the pool with a twist… instead of picking a team to win each week, you pick a team to lose each week.
I’m an NFL fan. Ever since I was little, I went to multiple Giants games every season. The excitement of football, the strategy (or lack thereof), the drama (or lack thereof), the sight of athletic talent (or lack thereof) hooked me.
I don’t go anymore because the team priced out its fans by building the most expensive stadium ever made. I still love football and follow it closely. I even bet on it sometimes. And I ran my office’s first ever suicide pool last year and had a perfect season, something I have to brag about because it was awesome.
But I don’t play fantasy football.
It’s been rough to be a part of the NFL over the past two weeks. Three people who work for professional football teams have lost their lives; two players and a grounds crew member. Teams who have lost members of their organization the day before a game, however, are 3-0 this season.
In an effort to pollute every network with politics, in case you happened to somehow miss the Presidential campaign that has been going on for the past two years, the U.S. Presidential candidates appeared on ESPN at halftime of last night’s Monday Night Football game to not answer questions and mention football.
The NFL is also a fashion show where top prospects show off proper courtroom attire that will likely be shown to a judge sometime in the near future.
