The reactions nationwide to me hitting a W10 yesterday have been touching. I am on top of the world right now. No Gurley, no problem. As the great philosopher Rack 'Em Willie once said, when you beat the Georgia Bulldogs you're gonna feel the Bulldog bite! Well, Arkansas still felt it in a loss. I didn't feel a thing. That could have been because of the booze though. I am not going to attribute that to Georgia football. Nevertheless, today is a great day. I get to watch the NFL at 7 AM like a complete degenerate and hopefully get my Streak for the Cash entry to previously unforeseen territory, a W11.
That honor, or potential induction into the I Hate You Entirely Because of Streak For The Cash Hall of Fame, belongs to the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals are entering the Black Hole in Oakland today to face the Raiders. The Raiders are one of two winless teams left in the NFL. Derek Carr is playing above expectations though and has shown he can throw the ball effectively, even if most of his work is done down fifteen points. The fact that this game is a straight up pick and not a "Arizona Wins By Double Digits/Oakland Loses By Single Digits or Wins" prop scares me a little. I think Arizona is head and shoulders above Oakland as a team but in the ENN-EFF-ELLLLLLLL, the rules are written in pencil and all it takes is one fluke play or phantom penalty to put me back in the red and ruin my last day in Hawaii. I take that back. It won't ruin my day. I am expecting a loss right now. I've never EVER broken ten and I have no logical reason to think that today will change that. This weekend has been so fun that not even the Raiders beating the Cardinals can bring me down. Take that negativity! I was going to say suck it negativity, but then I realized it is Rocktober and that wasn't his gimmick. Today's promo is him making fun of the people with that gimmick though. HAU'OLI STREAKING EVERYBODY!!
