Week 12: +37,000 jermajesties
Season Total: +15,500 jermajesties
On to Week 13 …
(Obligatory weekly explanation: A “jermajesty” represents the fake name given for a dollar amount in this series. It’s also the unfortunate name of one of Jermaine Jackson’s sons.)
Raiders will score over 18.5 points vs. Cowboys
As a devout Cowboys fan, I am more than familiar with this team’s pattern: disappoint, stun, disappoint stunningly. We’re unfortunately up to the third leg of that equation. Mark my words: Dallas will struggle with the Raiders. This Cowboys defense has given up 38, 19, and 30 points in their last three Thanksgiving games. If you look, you’ll see each of those is more than 18.5 points. Matt McGloin’s best game (three TD passes) came on the road against a Texans defense that’s superior to the one he’ll be facing Thursday. I'm hoping for another Dan Bailey bailout. 20,000 jermajesties
In the seventh minute of stoppage time, Luis Suarez somehow managed to get himself unmarked enough to flick a header past Chelsea keeper Petr Cech. It was the last touch of Sunday's match between Liverpool and Chelsea and it brought the Reds to a 2-2 tie.
At some level Chelsea only has itself to blame for letting two über-critical points slip in the race for the Premier League's "fourth-place trophy," but Suarez shouldn't have still been on the pitch. That's because somewhere around the 70th minute, he bit Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic. It wasn't accidental. It was like Suarez had emerged from a Jack London novel and been informed Ivanovic's triceps was a Kobe rib eye.
It should be noted that Suarez is an adult human being.
But this time, the former heavyweight champ gets serious as he opens up to the Sports Guy and Jalen Rose in a revealing interview about his struggles with drug use, women, leaving boxing, mental health, and his challenging upbringing.
Chris: Rem, when it comes to watching tennis, Brooklyn Decker is the greatest. She's Alexander. She's Sonny Liston. She's Jack Dempsey. There's no one like her. Her style is impetuous, her defense is impregnable, she's ferocious. She has our heart. I think she wants to eat our children.
Even though this is the second straight week that Spinks-related gear has come up (leading me to believe a certain someone has a "Spinks Vintage Shirt" Google Alert), this is the better of the two finds. Why? You get TWO shirts. Never underestimate the power of having multiple versions of the same item. It screams, "I can't wait until my significant other and I show up to this party wearing the same shirt, completely being those people." It's corny when you're both wearing full denim outfits with matching cowboy hats, but when it's two matching Tyson vs. Spinks shirts? Fantastic. If you have someone to keep you warm at night, wait for this item to get reposted (no one bid on it), and if you're single, find a way to get these shirts and then get out there and find you a soul mate.
