BFL or How To Make My Husband Love Me Even More

As some of you know I am married to a sports junkie. He loves football and baseball, golf and soccer, and even pro basketball (sometimes). He also loves pretend sports and participates in two fantasy baseball leagues, two fantasy football leagues, fantasy soccer and fantasy golf (yes fantasy golf).

So when I told him I was going to be participating in the Blogger Football League, picking games against my fellow bloggers for glory and bragging rights, he was ecstatic.

He offered to help me pick the games to ensure victory. I told him no way jose I want to do this on my own. I know a lot about football, I don't need his help to crush the other bloggers into submission.

And that is when he got an idea to make this even more fun. We could also compete against each other with the winner to get a date night of their choice.

So I'll be making my picks for the BFL and Bubs' picks will also be listed here so you all can see who's kickin' arse and takin' names in the But Why Mommy household (most likely me).

To quote the Manning brothers, its on like Donkey Kong.

Kansas City @ Atlanta
Oakland @ Buffalo
Tampa Bay @ Chicago
Houston @ Tennessee
Carolina @ Minnesota
Miami @ New England
Cincinnati @ NY Giants
Arizona @ Washington
Detroit @ San Francisco
St. Louis @ Seattle
New Orleans @ Denver
Pittsburg @ Philadelphia
Jacksonville @ Indianapolis
Cleveland @ Baltimore
Dallas @ Green Bay - This should be a great game. Dallas is really good and could win it all this year but it would cause me physical pain to choose Dallas over GB. With the Brewers well into their annual end of season tailspin and crushing my spirit along with it, I have decided to hop on the Aaron Rodgers Bandwagon and ride it for all its worth.
NY Jets @ San Diego
Combined Score of MNF - 49

Now here are Bubs' picks:

Kansas City @ Atlanta
Oakland @ Buffalo
Tampa Bay @ Chicago
Houston @ Tennessee
Carolina @ Minnesota
Miami @ New England
Cincinnati @ NY Giants
Arizona @ Washington
Detroit @ San Francisco
St. Louis @ Seattle
New Orleans @ Denver
Pittsburgh @ Philadelphia
Jacksonville @ Indianapolis
Cleveland @ Baltimore
Dallas @ Green Bay
NY Jets @ San Diego

Combined MNF Score 46

Well, look at that. I'm lovely. Yay.

What a great idea to turn this into a date night bet.

Ride that bandwagon! LOL

Who is this Aaron Rogers you're riding? Was it fun? Is he hot? Does your husband know?

Maura said...

Our picks our pretty similar, so Bubs is definitely going down. I love that you have a dual competition going on!

I'm looking forward to tomorrow -- see you on the field. (The Twitter field, that is.)

I love WATCHING football...but this. I have no idea. You make it sound so cool though, I wish I could understand! LOL! Anything to make my hubby think I'm all in the know about pro sports.
