When Monday night’s Chiefs/Chargers game came to an end, signifying the end of Week 11, there was one song and one song only that I felt the urge to listen to
I can’t explain why this song was what my brain craved immediately after the game, but I wasn’t about to argue with myself over it because Thin Lizzy kicks ass. You can probably tell from this little piece of info that I was in high spirits and must have had a good week, and for what feels like the first time in the history of doing these blogs, you’d be right. Let’s take a look at how my picks did in Week 11.

For the second time this season, I’ve cracked the double digit mark and ended up going 10-3 in Week 11. Now I’m not saying I deserve I round of applause or anything, but
All 5 of you that have been following along with my gambling escapades this season know how rough of a road it’s been, so forgive me if I feel like taking a second to celebrate this small victory in a war that I’m losing by a wide margin.
This 10-3 week brings my season record to an improved (but still pretty embarrassing) 63-99. Eh. So what that I have a losing record and have lost close to a thousand dollars betting on regular season football games in 2 and half months. Believe it or not, I have done way dumber things in my life, so this is just another number to add to my list. plus, the season isn’t over just yet. If I can string a few more positive weeks like this together, I might be able to turn this season around and break even. It’s a long shot, but a kid can dream.
