Fantasy Leaguers: There’s a Ringer in the House
Something Stinks on the South Shore.
For once, we are not talking about the Green Acres Mall. We are talking scandal. Along with our season-long Fantasy Football league, some of us play Pick’em against the spread of all the weekend’s games. Of course, it’s strictly for entertainment purposes. We have been doing it for years and while watching the Denver Broncos defeat the 49ers, we took a look at our Pick’em standings. We were absolutely shocked to see that Team Rich is killing it in both leagues.
Mind you, even the sun shines on a dog’s ass somedays, but as Team Weiss so eloquently said, “for years Rich could barely pick his ass and now he is freaking Jimmy the Greek?” For those too young to remember, Jimmy the Greek (pictured in the feature) was CBS Sports’ controversial handicapper during the 1970s-early 80’s on The NFL Today. He was the first TV personality to analyze NFL games by the Las Vegas betting line. He’s also was the first commentator to publicly talk about point spreads on broadcast television. Too bad comments he made about the “black athlete,” genetics, and slavery got him fired.
This Era’s Watergate
We suspect Richie has brought in a ringer. We think he’s enlisted his son, who is an awesome athlete and way smarter than his father, is making his picks. So we have dispatched Richie ‘Dick’ Burns to the South Shore for an in-depth investigation. Richie, we are coming for you. Remember the cover-up is worse than the lies. Just ask former U.S. President Richard M. Nixon.
