The Hypothetical SuperContest 2015 – Week 12

SuperContest_PromoHappy belated Thanksgiving! In what has become a bit of a Turkey Day tradition for me, I took a moment to list the things I’m thankful for on the good ole FB.

Now, I call that list “comprehensive,” but after a few days of reflection, I realized there were a few important items my list was missing: gambling, Donald Glover and Wawa hoagies. And while I don’t have a weekly blog dedicated to Childish Gambino or convenience stores of the North East Corridor (Editor’s Note: yet), I do have a place to write about gambling and why I’m thankful for it. So thank you gambling. I’m thankful for you. You complete me.

Here’s the slate (home team gets the asterisk):

I’m thankful for garbage football teams who announce they’ll be moving to another city too early so the football gods turn on them and curse them with even worse luck than they’re used to.

Seahawks* (-3.5) over Steelers

Hannah…. You are an angel from above! @SeattleChildrens

I’m thankful that the NFC East is such garbage the Eagles playoff hopes are still alive.

I’m thankful for Touchdown Teddy, garbage teams like the Falcons revealing themselves to be garbage, and my boy Ray for driving the Vikings bandwagon right past me and the Raiders on the freeway.
