I thought I would be a huge fan of Thursday Night Football. For one Thursday is almost like a weekend night, it’s a break from NBA, NCAA Hoops and the NHL. A lot of people are looking to meet up get drinks and watch the game and for the NFL to offer a Thursday night game that has some interesting sub-plots you’d think a degenerate like me would be pumped. It just doesn’t feel the same as a Sunday, Monday or even a Saturday game. I’ll place the blame on the NFL network, the coverage sucks, the announcers are JV, and the match ups always blow.
Jets vs Bills (in Canada) Zzzz, Miami vs Panthers…boring! Cleveland vs Pitt…who cares…
So the only reason I have interest in the game tonight is a guy name Chris Day, who called me yesterday and today from a 928 number. He said we have spoke in the past…who knows? I have had so many of these cheese ball, cranky, Winston smoking, old timers call me with ‘free picks’ who give you one then they hound you for the rest of your life trying to sign you up for their March Madness package for just Two Dimes. Any way Chris Day called and gave me the Clippers last night who rolled over Minnesota by like 25. As expected he called first thing asking me if I wanted his ‘free’ Thursday night pick. So I am thinking he was going to give me a NBA or NHL game, but he makes a pop with the Thursday night bore fest, Indy (-3) versus Jacksonville. Chris Day’s Play (yes that’s his tag line) is the Colts. I was thinking this would be a trap game, but I’ll roll with Day’s Play and if it loses I’ll tell him to take my name off his phone
