Week 4 2019 NFL Picks Against a 12-Year-Old

Week 3 was a little bumpy around The Cheap Seats, for all except The Kid. He had a nice week, and it has vaulted him up to a tie for first place.

Even though this is a football post, I wanted to say a special good bye to Globe Life Park, which will be closed to baseball by the time Week 4 of the 2019 NFL season is over.

The profile picture on our website is from Game 3 of the 2010 World Series, the first ever World Series game played at The Ballpark.

Globe Life a beautiful ballpark that housed some really good teams and players.

In addition to the great Rangers that played there, I got to see with my own eyes Cal Ripken Jr, Ken Griffey Jr, Mike Trout, Pedro Martinez, Derek Jeter, and many more greats play there.

As an Arlington resident, I voted for the new stadium, and I can't wait to watch some baseball in a climate controlled venue. But The Ballpark is a special place, and I'm sad to see it go.

Now, back to football.

Week 3
12-Year-Old: 10-6
Uncle J: 7-9
JDaddy: 7-9
CDog: 4-12

12-Year-Old: 27-21
Uncle J: 27-21
CDog: 23-25
JDaddy: 21-27

Week 3 2019 NFL Picks Against a 12-Year-Old

Wow, what a start for Uncle J. His 9-7 record in Week 2, gets him to an impressive 20-12 overall. It's a good start for all of us, actually. Even JDaddy back in last isn't that far back, and a nice couple of weeks will get him back up in contention.

I can't believe that what is keeping me in 2nd place is that the Jets' quarterback got mono. As a fellow mono survivor myself, I can't believe I picked a team who is missing a quarterback because of mono. What an idiot I am.

In Week 3 we also finally found what it would take for JDaddy to bet against the Cowboys. A 21 point line.

Week 2
Uncle J: 9-7
12-Year-Old: 9-7
CDog: 8-8
JDaddy: 7-9

Uncle J: 20-12
CDog: 19-13
12-Year-Old: 17-15
JDaddy: 14-18

Week 2 2019 NFL Picks Against a 12-Year-Old

Week 1 of the 2019 season has come and gone. Lots of lopsided scores, but I gotta say, here in The Cheap Seats we all finished somewhere between Ok and Really Well.

2 of us went 11-5, and the worst finish was 7-9. That just means we're due for a let down in week 2.

Week 1
CDog: 11-5
Uncle J: 11-5
12-Year-Old: 8-8
JDaddy: 7-9

CDog: 11-5
Uncle J: 11-5
12-Year-Old: 8-8
JDaddy: 7-9

If you want to know why CDog gets listed above Uncle J even though we both finished with the same record, it's simple:

CDog still works for a living and still manages the picks each week. When you write the blog while on the clock you get to do whatever you want.

Long Live The King

On to Week 2...

Week 1 2019 NFL Picks Against a 12-Year-Old

Can you believe it? We are in our 9th season of picking games against a kid. Before long, the kid won't be a kid.

We started this when he was 4 years old. He's now about to turn 12 (next week), plays baseball in another town, and is almost as tall as his mother. Don't tell her I told you that.

As we embark on Year 9, lets get a refresher on how our seasons have gone in the past. Here are the number of championships for each of us.

The Kid - 3
CDog - 2
JDaddy - 2
Uncle J - 1

To be fair, Uncle J didn't start until our second season.

JDaddy took the crown last year. Will he repeat or will someone else jump up?
