Are You Ready For Some Football?

By Wyatt Earp | August 30, 2010

Kyle in goal. Only Jesus saves more.

Finally, football comes back on Thursday, September 9th. Coincidentally, Kyle’s fall soccer season starts around the same time. This year, the team has put out a fund raiser that may be of interest to degenerate gamblers like myself. They are hosting an NFL suicide pool through an independent website. For those not in the know, this suicide pool works like this:

For all football fans this should be easy and straight forward. You register for our pool on the site, and each week you make one pick of a team you think will win. You can’t use the same team twice. Once you lose two times you are out. The last person remaining wins the pot. It costs $20 to enter, and the winner shares the pot with the soccer team. The more people who sign up, the bigger the winnings (obviously).

You have to be signed up before the first NFL game, but sooner is better than later. If you’re interested, send me an e-mail and I’ll give you the sign-in information. Thanks!

    Sorry, I have bad memories of Suicide Football Pools. A Hot girl I was dating about 10 years ago got me involved in one through her work. Once I progressed further than she did, she dumped me.

    You know, not only was she hot, but she knew everything about the Chicago Bears like how Curtis Enis’ bum knee ultimately brought down Coach Dave Wannstedt and caused Mama McCaskey to kick her son, Mike to the pseudo post of CEO Emeritus.

    But I digress. Sorry.
