That was an interesting week wasn't it? More interesting than you'd like it to be if you're a Seahawks fan. Raise your hand if you saw the Percy Harvin trade coming.
Tackling NFL point spreads isn't for the faint of heart. Need evidence? Just take a look at last Sunday's games. The New York Jets, 10-point dogs, trailed the Denver Broncos 24-17 with under a minute left on the game clock.
Has there ever been a football weekend filled with more upsets and general zaniness than the one we're still recovering from? The Kenai Kardinals gave a dominant SoHi Stars team everything they could handle before falling 21-14.
The Sultan of Sides is riding a tidal wave of excellence into the fifth week of the NFL season. A pocket book pleasing 9-4 mark against the spread in week four followed an even fatter 11-4-1 tally in week three.
Last week's 4-12 record against the spread was the worst mark in this columns history! Ouch. What planet am I on? I'm still feeling dizzy from the rear-end kicking the NFL handed me, but the football calendar waits for no man.
The Sultan of Sides has his swagger back after a scintillating 11-4-1 performance against the spread last week. That result, following a disastrous week 2, raises the column's record to 24-23-1 ATS on the year. Apparently, using the Donald Rumsfeld "Known-Unknown" strategy works better in the NFL than the Middle East.
I don't like to jump into social issues but I can't help but address this Ray Rice ordeal. Obviously, there is no place in our society for domestic violence.
Blue forty-two, red sixty-six, razor, razor, hut-hut, HIKE! Thank God it's football season! The Sultan of Sides is back, after a summer of golfing, to once again make your NFL Sundays as profitable as a Bernie Madoff hedge fund.
Summer isn't over, summer isn't over, summer isn't over. ? I'm hoping if I say that enough times it will be true.
The Fourth Kenai Peninsula Open came and went last weekend. Gail force winds, very unusual at Birch Ridge, made scoring next to impossible Saturday during the first round of play.
