Post Pick4 Week 1 -- Schmoozing
Welcome to this year's Pick 4 game! This week we have a Thursday game, where the Super Bowl champions are huge underdogs at the Broncos.

I just noticed that I didn't format my picks correctly by not including the point spreads. Should I make a second post?

The rules said that if I edit my post it gets DQed....don't dq me bro~

Just leave them as is, the point spreads are assumed. :)

I'm hoping I can dq everyone except myself by the end of the season. That is the only way I will ever have a chance to win the regular season game. :rock:

DQ sounds good. I love the Oreo Blizzard.

I used to tend bar in a casino and bet quite often. I've never even hit a 3 teamer much less a 4 teamer. I'm good at hitting 3 out of 4 or mising all 4 completely.

It says if I win the Pick 4 I get bragging rights. Does that mean I can brag about anything I want...or just the contest?

It doesn't say, so I guess you have bragging rights on any topic you want. If you have a hot girlfriend and want to post her picture in the Schmoozing thread, that's fine with me.

Well, I have to win before I can brag and post pics.

I did notice that no one was even thinking about picking New England until I did...now it's a stone cold lock. Pick 4 is a copycat league, gotta be a trend setter to have an edge.

Every single one of my picks is gonna lose and not cover the spread except the 49ers.

201 yards and a touchdown later, shows what I know about declaring Reggie Bush "overblown."

Ha. And to top it all off, he did that with injuries to his thumb, groin, and hip. Someone needs to figure out how to slow him down! We sure couldn't!

What is the point of displaying the point spreads? You just pick the winner, right? Is it just to give fans a better idea or what? The reason I ask is because it seems as if one right pick is only two points. I would think that if you go against the odds and get it right (Ex. Bills vs Patriots)--that you'd get something a little extra for that, at least a sucker or something. :D If it's simply about picking the winner and ignoring the expectations of the point spread (I read the crazy details and expectations of point spreads...), seems pretty easy to me. I could join now and beat you all. ;)
