Just Throwing My Picks At You

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IDecember 20, 2008

Leave it to Chris Webber and the rest of the Inside the NBA to deliver the best parody of the Bush shoe throwing incident. Admittedly, I've never really been the biggest fan of George W. (but I'd love to have a beer with him, right!) Still, I have to say I didn't find the shoe throwing incident to be that funny.

Even though Bush made light of the situation by saying, "I saw that man's sole" (hilarious in it's own right), I was still uneasy about the whole situation. Someone just threw a stone at our President's head! I know it's just a shoe, but the intent was to harm our Commander in Chief. Isn't that kind of a big deal?

Per usual, a tip to Awful Announcing for the TNT video. Now for those of you keeping score at home, I do have my confidence points picks for the week, minus the awkward attempts at comedy infiltrated with YouTube videos. I'm off to a wedding, and I'm not sure if the church has wireless access, so this post had to be brief. So let me just throw my picks at you:

1 point - Carolina over New York Giants
2 points - Dallas over Baltimore
3 points - Cleveland over Cincinnati
4 points - New Orleans over Detroit
5 points - Tennessee over Pittsburgh
6 points - Kansas City over Miami
7 points - St. Louis over San Francisco
8 points - New England over Arizona
9 points - San Diego over Tampa Bay
10 points - Buffalo over Denver
11 points - Houston over Oakland
12 points - New York Jets over Seattle
13 points - Atlanta over Minnesota
14 points - Philadelphia over Washington
15 points - Green Bay over Chicago
16 points - Indianapolis over Jacksonville

See you tomorrow, my Buckies.
