Thanks for reading ScoreBoredSports NFL Staff Picks: Week 6. So, one thing they don’t tell you when you begin the process of turning into a fifty-foot tall giant made of diamond, is how strongly such a transformation can affect those around you. For example, did you know that people sometimes resent perfect geniuses like myself who make incredibly insightful NFL picks each week? To quote SBS Co-Founder and bearded maniac, Bruno Tysh: “Why has God cursed me with such strength?”

 

This week, the SBS staff didn’t have our best showing, but we were still strong in making heady picks. Mike tied for the lead with that Bruno dude, and yours truly.  As unquestionable as my brilliant method is, the truth behind the veil is perhaps more deceptive than one might think.  Simply stated: my main strategy is to avoid feeling stupid after making a pick.  The best example of this I can think of came a few weeks ago, when the Texans played the Bucs. My logic in picking Houston? Boy, would I have felt like an idiot picking a rookie quarterback, who’s historically struggled against pressure, on the road, against the mythological creature known as J.J. Watt.  It doesn’t take a genius to make that pick, but it doesn’t hurt that I am one.

 

Week 6

 

As a Detroit Lions “fan” I don’t really have much more to say about football this week (except go Red Wings, of course).  Instead, here are the lyrics to Cattle Decapitation’s “No Light, No Life,” which do an okay job of depicting what it’s like to be a Lions fan.  Doesn’t really capture the despair, but it’s the closest I could find.

 

No Light and No Life
Cattle Decapitation

I could not be anymore negative if my life depended on it
The look on my face of actual hate
Look in my eyes to peer inside – no light and no life

I hope you die within my lifetime
I wish nothing but the worst for you and everything you know
Conditioned by the acts you hide behind
Condemned to believe that this is how life should be

I don’t wish to spew this rhetoric, I’ve been damned with this voice
I don’t wish to be filled with hatred, I’ve been given no other choice

This hostility, malicious enmity, the spite inside of me,
dark as pitch and black as night
This cursed chemistry, an acid to clemency, pre-meditating helplessly…

If man cannot change the world
We must live long and die out
There’s far too many of us anyway
you are the proof that these are the end of days

Rationalize the status of your life on this earth
Actualize trampled worth as your life is reversed
Dehumanized, your re-birth, now dispersed in the hearse
So brutalized, phlebotomized draining of life

I don’t wish to make these threats on your life
I’ve been damned with this voice
I don’t wish to hate the whole of this “humankind”,
I’ve been given no other choice

This hostility, malicious enmity, the spite inside of me,
dark as pitch and black as night
This cursed chemistry, an acid to clemency, pre-meditating helplessly…
