    I am VERY much looking forward to tonight's Packers' game! I am hoping that they are able to make a mark without Favre. You can't take anything away from the man as far as his record goes, but I am incredibly sick and tired of his tears and whining. Good riddance and hope NY enjoys his drama-queen antics more than the Packer fans did. :lick:

    Tuef, I even took your Ravens to win. You should be ashamed!:coco:

    Did I mention, Go Steelers!!!? :cheerleader:

    for those of you wondering how we are going to pay up each week, cause I do plan on doing this each week as long as there is interest, here is my idea if agreeable. I have locked down a green bag right inside the door of my house in front of the Grim Reaper, it is labled NFL Millions, loosers simply stop by the house and drop a bag with a check for a million and a book with your stratics screen name in it. Access for the bag is set to anyone. For anybody that does not trust me, and if you look around the house you will see I do not need the gold, just take a screen shot of you dropping it in the bag. Once all gold is collected I will get in touch with the winner and deliver. I believe Tech Firecrazy and even that Steeler lover Betty will vouch for me. My house is just outside the West Gate of Luna was formerly AJ's, I would post a screenshot but Photobucket is acting up...let me know if anyone has any problems.

    I will certainly vouch for Teufel. We've had a couple trades and he's always been honest, friendly, and generous. And he's right: he's rich enough that he doesn't NEED to cheat anyone! Ordinarily it would suck for a low-to-middling rares collector like me when someone moves in next door whose collection DWARFS mine, but it's easier to take when he's a good guy like Teufel Hund.

    His house is immediately north of mine as shown in the radar screen inlay in my signature, in case anyone does want a picture.

    I'll vouch for him as well Tech, as he has hooked me up on several occasions, including once with you hehe.:) No worries on the gold, it's a pretty nice hood around there lol.

    I need to lay down and try to get a 'nap' in before work tonight, but dangit! Those Packers are coming along nicely, even again that Adrien guy. (Fast little sucker!)

    Rodgers is doing us proud! Win or lose, I'm glad to see him on the field doing a pretty damn good job. (Even if his offensive line was flagged to death in the first quarter!!)

    The heat is on.

    Good luck, Teuf!

    If anyone else wants to join our cozy neighborhood, there's currently room for a 7 x ?? just west of Teufel Hund (Isabeau), if you don't mind living in his shadow. :)

    Er it would be a two way tie, haha.
     
  42. Teufel_Hund

    Teufel_Hund Guest

    Kahlan Betty and Fire Crazy all tied with 10 out of 16 correct picks. check peeps to make sure it is not too early in the morning for me.

    Also the locked down bag is not going to work unless you are a freind of my house, and that would be a pain so I will go with Techs idea and place a Vendor near my front door named NFL millions and place a book for each loser with his or her name on it priced at a million, stop by and purchase your book. Then I will pay offf the winners, 3.3 million to each of them this week. PM me if anybody has any issues.

    Holy Hell!!!

    Denver got their asses handed to them, but good! If I need to pay into the fund and have lost, I will do so, otherwise, let it sit for the next week's winners. I have no need for gold, darlin'. :wink"
