I understand now why the Germans get their ass up every generation or so and feel the need to march around Europe. We got into Las Vegas last Friday and spent Friday evening at the Hofbrau Haus watching the Chuckwagon Gang run up our first winner as they destroyed Tulsa. While watching that game, we ate copius amounts of bratwurst and potatoes, all washed down with 6.7% German Oktoberfest beers. The polka band was playing and scantilly clad waitresses kept appearing with massive cut glasses full of more beer. After a couple liters of that stuff, you're ready to march off and kick some Gallic ass. A few more and you're ready to take on all of Europe. Judging from the folks around our table, we could probably have hit the beach at Normandy and been in Paris in two days. Fortunately for us, we just wanted to kick some posterior at the sportsbook the next day.

Now let's review last weeks' plays, Arkansas busted, so the three of us tossed a loser out there. The Texan went with Florida and lost that but the Pollack and the Mexican wisely put their money on Ole' Miss which paid off handsomely. The Texan did take South Carolina and the three of us agreed on that play. The Mexican did give out Purdue and 13 which was a winner if you got it, if you got the play at 14 like I did, it was a push so no loss there. I did like Toledo to cover against Iowa State and they covered and won outright. So all in all a mixed bag for posted picks.

Now when the Pollack and the Mexican hit Vegas on the annual business trip, we had already run up two winners with Thug U and the Dirt Burglars of Oklahoma. I got to admit that as the morning unfolded, it was beginning to look like we had walked into a buzzsaw I was already calling the Homicide at the Hilton. As the early games came in, a roster of losers posted first. Bets on Nebraska, Notre Dame, North Carolina State, Boston College, Kent State, Arkansas, Colorado State and Maryland all posted. Few winners were coming in. Fortunately we had an incredible afternoon including a clean sweep of PAC 10 action. A litany of winners rolled in and the Arturo Fuente's came out in celebration...Kansas, Florida Atlantic, South Carolina, BYU, Ole Miss, Illinois, Ohio State, Navy-Duke over, Colorado State-Cougar High over, Miami Ohio-Colorado under, Arizona-Cal over. Then the icing on the cake, the late games, Purdue-push, Arizona State, Oregon, Toledo, Iowa and my beloved Longhorns, all putting money in the coffers. I won't go into the ribald details of how much was won or lost since the occasional IRS agent may be cruising through the cyberhood. Suffice it to say that the trip was more than paid for.

As to this week's action, the Texan has checked in and he likes Oregon giving the 5 pts at home. Autzen is a zoo and the Ducks will be up for Cal. The Mexican agrees with this pick.

The Texan also likes Texas to take care of bidness before next week's blowout with the Dirt Burglars. Take the 'Horns and give the 15.5 pts against Kansas State.

The Texan's final pick of the week is Air Force to bomb Navy. The Pollack and the Mexican disagree on this pick and think the Middies shoot down the Falcons. According to the Texan, take Air Force and get the 2 pts.

The Mexican's pick of the week is the alma mater, UNLV. Take the Rebels and the 3.5 pts on the road against a Nevada squad that is going to be primed to take it to them. Since this is the big in-state rivalry, normally all bets are off but my Rebels have been covering spreads so far so let's stay with them one more time.

Until next week...

Once Spider got on the outside of a cup of coffee and a seegar this morning, he was able to launch the hi-speed satellite uplink in order to get us his picks this week. Now last week the Pollack finally had a loser, BYU, his first of the year so no sniveling. This week the three of us once again agree on a pick of the week,

Kentucky @ Arkansas: Take the Pigs and give the 6 pts. Fayetteville is a tough place to play and Louisville had no defense to stop the 'Cats last week. (This is the Pollack's play of the week)

The Texan also provides these insights on SEC action.

Florida @ Ole Miss: The Texan calls for a Florida mudstompin' in Oxford. Advises to take the Gators and give the 21 pts. (The Pollack and Mexican are staying off this pick and may even hold our noses and take the Rebels and the pts.)

South Carolina @ LSU: The Texan calls for South Carolina to keep it close enough to cover. Take the Yardstrutters and the 16 pts and hope that Spurrier can pull some tricks out of his bag before the Bayou Bengals send them packing back to the Palmetto State.

Now then Mexican is interested in a mild financial position on the following games:

Purdue @ Minnesota: Take the Boilermakers and give the 13 pts against a horrible Minnesota squad. Besides, theres too many lib'ruls in Minnesota and the chipmunks don't look any tougher than a team of junior leaguers.

Iowa State @ Toledo: Take the Rockets and the 3 pts. The Cyclones played the Hawkeyes tough last week but they also lost to a Division I-AA school earlier this year. The Rockets are at home and can put some points on the board.

Thats it for now folks, gotta pack for the Vegas weekend. Looks good so far since we took Thug U and gave the 2 pts tonight against the Sodbusters...We'll check back in next week with more exposure of lib'rul insanity and football talk...

Sometimes kids do indeed say the darnedest things. In these days of over-hyped has beens’ and talentless never-should havebeens’ it is sometimes easy to overlook the truly momentous and important. You see, while today is September 19, an important anniversary passed a couple days ago with nary a mention of it in the media. This past week marks the 220th Birthday of the United States Constitution, for it was on September 17, 1787 that many of the leading political figures in the United States came together in agreement on a framework for a new government. Successful? Not to hear the leftists speak of it. Of course your liberal (excuse me, progressive is the term du jour) has little to no use for a document that they haven’t read, don’t understand and can’t apply to their fantasy worlds.

Rather than mark the anniversary of such a historic day, the media instead choose to deluge us with the latest on O.J. and his arrest in Las Vegas. Alternatively we might learn that Britney is losing her kids or hired out a contract on K-Fed. (An act for which I believe she should be given the nation’s highest civilian award, if true.) Of course the media is at the heart of the problem. Since they are overwhelmingly composed of limousine liberals who have no use for the Constitution, the media really sees no need to celebrate it. Of course the Constitution did receive some scant attention locally when it was reported that colleges actually make people dumber. (I will forego the too-easy comments about the representation of political beliefs in academia) Suffice it to say that billions poured into college education has merely resulted in graduates who can mouth the leftist line, rather than engage in critical thinking.

It appears that incoming college freshmen score better on civics questions than do outgoing seniors. I don’t know what they are teaching in those required core courses on U.S. Government at most colleges and universities, but apparently it has nothing to do with the actual foundation of the government, the Constitution.

I bring this up because I couldn’t be prouder of my Goddaughter, Bethany Smith of Boulder City, NV. She took time out of her busy teen queen day to fire off letters to the local television stations in Las Vegas, blasting them for focusing on O.J. while the birthday of the Constitution went by unnoticed. Kids, you’ve got to love them and since Bethany is quite capable of critical thought, I’d say her folks have done just fine.

Speaking of the land of dust and lust, this is the Annual Boy’s Vegas Weekend. The yearly bash where several friends get together in Vegas, drink, eat, smoke cigars and wager on football. What that means for you regular readers is that this week’s picks will be posted tomorrow, as soon as I can get the satellite feed up and running to Texas. (Or when Spider answers his cellphone, whichever comes first.) We’ll discuss last week’s showing as well so until then, y’all be good and take a moment out of your day to thank God for giving us those forty men who affixed their name to an experiment in government 220 years ago.

Hey there fellow sportsfans and budding financial emperors. If you all have been betting with the combustible trio of the Texan, the Mexican and the Pollack, you’re winning money so far at a torrid clip since we’ve posted 9 winners and only 2 losers these first two weeks. This week is gut check time as we prepare for the big annual Boy’s Vegas Weekend 2007 next week. That all said, we just finished up our conference call via high technology satellite uplink to San Antone. The Texan checks in this week with a call on the following games:

Houston @ Tulane. The Texan says to take Cougar High and give the 14 pts.

Arkansas @ Alabama. Our humble Texas correspondent says “roll Tide” and give the 3 pts. Tuscaloosa is a tough place to play, especially if you’re a young swine…(sidenote, The Pollack and the Mexican agree on this pick)

Tennessee @ Florida. Now the Mexican and the Pollack say to stay off this one. The Texan says this pick is only for those with iron constitutions. Take Tennessee and the 9 pts. and cuss loudly every time Coach Fulmer does something stupid. (Which the Pollack and the Mexican think could make for a loud afternoon.)

BYU @ Tulsa. This is the Pollack’s play of the week, take the Mormon’s and give the 6.

USC @ Nebraska. Now I generally hate to support USC at anything but bidness is bidness. Take the prophylactics to cover 10 against the Corn Farmers.

Hawaii @ UNLV. No one likes it. But I might throw the alma mater on a parlay card, taking the Rebels and the 17 pts.

Ohio @ Virginia Tech. This is the Mexican’s pick of the week. Take the Hokies and give the 17 pts. After last week’s Louisiana ass-whippin’ of the Hokies, they’re goin’ home with a mean on. Ohio gets to play the victim.

In Texas H.S. football action, the Texan says to mortgage the farm on the Fightin’ Unicorns of New Braunfels against the Beeville Trojans tonight. Look for an easy cover of the local spread. The spread is currently available only through selected San Antonio area bookies. Contact SAPD Vice for last known whereabouts of your favorite.

That’s it for this week folks. You want a game you’re interested in posted? Hit the contact button and give me a holler…

Week 2 of the football season has already begun folks but truth to tell, I wasn't too terribly enamored of any early picks. The WKWR Hi-tech satelite uplink to Texas went down today in the middle of transmission, so we are without the Texan's picks. All we got was a garbled "I been studyin' the Miami Thugs at Mobilehoma Chuckwagon gang and....." We were unable to reestablish contact prior to the kickoff of the New Braunfels-Seguin Texas High School football matchup, where the Texan was last known to be. We here at WKWR will miss his input this week and root for a win by the Fightin' Unicorns over the Matadors...

Now then, back to where the money is. The Pollack loves Mississippi State over Tulane. Take the Bulldogs and give the 6 pts.

As for the Mexican...I like my beloved Longhorns to cover the 9 pts against a feisty TCU team.

Contrary to many of the experts, I like Boise State to cover against Washington, even though Washington accounted for one of my two losses last week. I don't think the Broncos are getting enough credit.

I also like Mizzou again. I rode that horse a long way last year. Gonna do it again this year. Take the Tigers, give the 5.5 on the road at Ole Miss. As long as they stay focused and don't get too carried away with all of the....ahem...."scenery" around Oxford, Mizzou should be allright.

Look for Okie Lite to run away with it over Florida Atlantic...give the 24 pts and take the Cowpokes.

Lastly, for my nephew Jamie, who went to Indiana and is a huge Hoosier fan. They are usually the doormat of the Big 10 and this week they play Western Michigan, out of conference. The game is a pick'em. Sorry kid, gotta take Western Michigan over the Hoosiers.

Hopefully, come Monday, we'll all be on the lamb from the IRS....

Well there all you football comatose folks out there, how was that for a blistering start? Your football prognosticating trio of the Pollack, the Texan and the Mexican, went out and posted a torrid 6-0 in games we gave you. If you'd had ten bucks on a parlay card, you'd be about $400 bucks better off. Sadly, even your genial host didn't do that. I did have Nebraska wired though and the Pollack absolutely nailed the teaser pick of the week. The whole idea was to protect a rooting interest bet on Cal while getting better odds on Missouri. Didn't end up needing either but Mizzou was closer than we like. Sure Memphis lost to Ole' Miss but they covered and around here, it's the money that counts. The Texan and the Mexican agreed on The Hub City Bandits of Tech and they absolutely destroyed the ponies from SMU.

Be sure to check back this week as your humble trio of football forecasters tries their mightiest to give you a betting edge and make you a little richer. It's all part of my plan to jumpstart the economy by getting more money to circulate.
