Do you know that I
Use these picks as legit
Income tax write offs?

I'm very much enjoying the Oakland/Minnesota haiku.

As a Raiders fan, tonight was the one time I rooted for the Jets. Shudder. You people have like… one guy who can play. The guy who got thrown in jail for shooting himself in the leg. Watching professional football is supposed to be fun, you know.

I realize replacing "some people" in the Dallas/Wash haiku with "everyone in DC" throws off the meter, but it's more accurate.

As a Detroit fan, don't you want the Packers' one loss to happen next week?
