Over the last bunch of weeks, the whole family has been competing in Pigskin Pick 'Em. On Thursday, there is a guy who writes a "crystal ball" column who predicts the NFL games. All of us make picks too to see if we can beat the "expert." I like to do a bit of research for my picks. I ask who is home and who is away. I also ask about the records of each of the teams. The research is paying off. I won by a mile last week and I'm in a position (with a Denver win) to win again this week. The crystal ball guy seems not to be all that good. He's in last place this week.
