Week 14 NFL Picks Against a 5-Year-Old

I always hated the game of Hearts.  I've never actually played it with real cards, just on the computer, back before things like Words With Friends were in our lives.  I would play it because it was there, and the rules were easy to follow, but it was frustratingly hard for me to beat the computer.  What cards do I pass, what cards do I keep, when do I play the Queen of Spades?  I ALWAYS GOT STUCK WITH THE QUEEN OF SPADES!

Anyway, I was reminded of Hearts this afternoon as I was adding up our pick 'em standings.  If this was Hearts, the game would be over since JDaddy has reached the 100 loss mark.  The winner of our imaginary Hearts game?  Me!  Yay!  I like it better this way since we have way cooler names than the ones the computer would make up.

But it's not just Hearts that appears to be going my way.  With another 5 win week, Uncle J has fallen a game below .500 on the season.  That gives me a 13 game advantage with just 4 weeks to play.  Winning the season isn't clinched yet, but another double digit week has me rolling.  Still, I'm just going to take it one day at a time and Lord willin' I'll come out on top.
