Hijo le mano! I just got back from Stalingrad folks. At least thats what it feels like in the ol' B Bar V corral this evening. The wind was howling off Hungry Mountain and blowing snow in my face as I made the nightly manure run out to the edge of the property. Crossing that frozen dirt with 2 inches of snow on top with the wind blasting me in the face as I pushed the wheelbarrow along made me recall with fondness the balmy days of summer. Like way back on October 8th when we hit 82 degrees. Where is that bloated stain on humanity known as Algore when you need him? October 10th and already the B Bar V looks like midwinter. I reckon my harvest of tomatoes, okra and peppers is gonna be a mite thin this year. At least the cold weather is good for the onion patch.

Speaking of patches of dirt, for those of you who might not know it, there's going to be a little football game in Dallas tomorrow. At noon Eastern, the beloved and noble Texas Longhorns will run into the Cotton Bowl to take on the dirt burglin' Oklahoma Sooners. Both teams are undefeated and ranked in the top 5. The quarterback statistics of the two pigskin pitchers are nearly identical through 6 weeks of the season. Will goodness and light win out? Or will the assortment of probationers and parolees masquerading as student athletes from Oklahoma cause great wailing and lamentation across the Lone Star State. We'll soon know. For myself, I'll be keeping a gameday vigil at the local sports wagering establishment, also known as the Felony Flats Hotel and Casino, enjoying a fine Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 seegar.

Speaking of gameday vigils and wagering. Seems our Polish friend overloaded on football in Vegas last week. He came back a winner but as a true devotee of any American sport worth betting on, his attention has turned to the love of his childhood, playoff baseball. Since the Dodgers are making a run at it, the Pollack can't be trusted for football picks right now, any more than democrats can be trusted with a budget plan. With that in mind, I'm still here to offer you the latest picks from the Mexican and the Texican. The Texican finally had an off week, going 1-3 last round so this is a get even week for him. The Pollack was 2-2 on his selections and your humble correspondent was a torrid 3-1. For those of you keeping score, that puts us at 24-15 on the season. Entirely respectable, from a purely entertainment point of view of course.

This week the Texican phones in picks on: Texas, take the 6.5 pts and buy the hook to 7. Let's hope and pray that he's back to his winning ways. The Longhorns have covered the last 3 in the series. Hook'em Horns and Texas Fight!! Georgia laying the wood to a disappointing Tennessee team. Giving 13 pts but the Dawgs are at home and UGA IV is hungry. Notre Dame at North Carolina. Sure the Tar Heels are at home and beat UConn 7 ways to Sunday last week. But UConn was overrated and this could mark a resurgence for God's team. In NFL action, take the Broncos at home in Denver, lay the 3 pts against Jacksonville.

The Mexican hopes to continue his winning ways this week. Hawaii over Louisiana Tech. Lay the 7 pts. The boys from bayou country are going to learn the hard way that Lake Ponchartrain ain't quite as large as the Pacific. Baylor laying 4.5 pts at home against Iowa State. The Cyclones come into Waco and get pasted by a pretty fair Bears team. Maybe this call will finally get me off the Baylor fundraising mailing list. Sheesh, you go to one party 25 years ago and date one girl and them Baptists never let go. TCU laying 15.5 at Colorado State. Buy the hook to get it to 15 and watch the Frogs roll over an overmatched Rams squad. NFL action, take Houston at home over Miami. Lay 3, buy the half pt. Big win for Miami last week but Houston is a decent squad this year.

Thats it for now sportsfans. Be sure to check in for winnings and political updates as we get closer to resolving this goatroping they call a presidential election.
