Bring your weak ass picks to (team

Get smoked like the biatch you are.
2001-09-07 08:11:20 AM  
Don't quit your day job.
2001-09-07 08:12:04 AM  
I remember when Norad used to write excellent satire for Culf of Nobody. It's a shame to see he's fallen to such a lowly state as this.... *sniff*
2001-09-07 08:19:31 AM  
i saw his "Carolina over Vikings" pick and quit reading
2001-09-07 08:45:45 AM  
Bug - yup. A 10 point spread isn't very generous, given the scoring power on the Vikes.

Can I get free webhosting on Fark too?
2001-09-07 09:33:35 AM  
Phillyguy you already have it. Here is a link to it.
2001-09-07 09:39:33 AM  
Don't let them sway you Norad. I agree with most of your picks although point spreads have always worried me. Besides, we all know the Rams are going to scooty-scoot-scoot through the season, through the playoffs and through the Denver Broncos to take it all. Again. (St.Louis is great, ain't it bro?)

When are you going to start up your own 900 number???
2001-09-07 09:51:06 AM  
I kinda like the fact he dislikes the Cowboys-eecch!
2001-09-07 09:54:53 AM  
Agreed! If the Cowboys were playing the Iraqis. I'd cheer for Saddam Hussein.
2001-09-07 09:56:50 AM  
shiat. Need more coffee, can't feel keyboard.
2001-09-07 11:35:57 AM  
Obviously this guy knows nothing about these games. If you are going to bet, you might be better off going with the opposites of his picks.
2001-09-07 11:48:50 AM  
Redskins loose to the Chargers because Banks is on the team??? UMM he's a backup.

PS Cowboys blow goat
2001-09-07 12:00:56 PM  
His ID is Noorad in the pigskin pickem pool. See how well he does on monday.
2001-09-07 12:11:47 PM  
> 6. SAINTS @ BILLS: Vegas Line--Saints by 1 1/2
> Norad pick: Another confusing New England team...

Ummm. Exactly which of the New Orleans Saints and the Buffalo Bills is a New England Team?

Buy a map, you ass.

These picks aren't that horrible, but why the hell do we care?

Oh, and am I now officially the only person in American who still likes the Cowboys? I swear all I hear are people piling on them on how bad they are going to be and how they will be the worst team ever. Yes, they are going to suck this year. Yes, they aren't going to have a winning year. But come on, they aren't going to go 0-16 this year. They play both Arizona and Washington twice this year so there is at least 2 wins. All I can say is thank God Ryan Leaf failed that physical.

I submitted this as a goof, I'm surprised it got posted. Football picks usually bring motormouths out of the woodwork, and it looks like FARK is no exception..but HEY! That's the way it goes. I stand by it & that's that.

Fb-: First, I already did. And those are straight picks at USA Today, which is hella easier than factoring in the spread. There's a very helpful beginners guide to point spreads right here. Go check it out.

Burber: Like I said, the very fact the 'skins picked up that loser is a flashing red neon sign that screams "WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING!" Bad decisons like that aren't made by teams worth a damn. If they wind up sticking him in a game, you'll see what I mean. And yes, the 'boys are gonna scream SUCK all season long.

Bigpeeler: You know it, man. Tip a few Sunday while the Rams open a jar of jelly whoop-ass. W00t!

Aeonite: Buffalo isn't technically in NE, but I'm an American and I'm supposed to be shiatty at geography.
2001-09-07 01:50:31 PM  
Crap. It's
2001-09-07 01:54:31 PM  
does the last post officially bring you out of the woodwork?
2001-09-07 02:00:23 PM  
Why yes...yes it does
2001-09-07 02:08:41 PM  
We will see how easy straight picks are. Me thinks j00 are gonna get smoked.
2001-09-07 02:55:54 PM  
My spread picks are quite different from the straight picks in the USA Today pool, but the dust will settle come Monday night.
2001-09-07 03:08:13 PM  
go broncos
2001-09-07 03:15:45 PM  
>>but I'm an American and I'm supposed to be shiatty at geography.

OK, you're excused.
2001-09-07 03:21:30 PM  
I agree, Panthers over Vikings!!

It is too bad that I cannot upload music or you would all be listening to the NY Giants theme song right now. Norad it is obvious that you spent last night partying with Marion Barry, cause these pics are for crack heads. Denver over the NY Giants, ha-ha-ha.
2001-09-07 05:28:31 PM  
You can spot Carolina 20 1/2 points and they still wouldn't cover.

Weinke and the rest of the scrubs on that team won't score a TD. Minnesota 38  Carolina 6

Excellent points about the Deadskins, Norad. Does anyone know if Felony made the move to the D.C. area? Banks = S.U.C.K. This guy just has no concept of what it takes to be a professional athlete.

Unless the turf in Philly somehow takes Faulk out, the Rams will travel to the largest cess pool in America and thoroughly whoop the Eagles' ass.
2001-09-07 05:32:06 PM  
The Rams won't win the Superbowl this year.

2001-09-07 09:06:16 PM  
I can't agree with all those picks, but I live in Vegas so whaddya expect? The Casinos are already holding a big chunk of my money that's riding on this weekend, but I have any idea what the hell I'm doing, I'll be getting it all back, and then some, come Monday.
2001-09-08 12:00:49 AM  
I like your style and your picks.
2001-09-12 03:04:36 PM  
Hey Norad. I loved your picks. Do you plan on posting week2, week3, etc? It would be great if I could get them from ya.
