She has a system. Or, I should say, we have a system for her. It’s ridiculous, and it actually works sometimes.
Back up. Reverse, restart. I’m talking about NFL predictions. My family makes picks each week before the Thursday night game. I used to be pretty good at this, but I’ve been outscored recently by (drum roll) our rabbit.
Buttercup the rabbit “has” a system. We write down her picks according to the team mascot and whether a rabbit would like it or not. For example, she’ll pick the Cowboys over the Lions and the Broncos over the Redskins. If the team name represents a species that hunts or eats rabbits, she chooses the other one. She always picks the Packers. If the Falcons play the Eagles, we’re really out of luck.
I won that time; Buttercup tied with the dear sweet man of the house. Amigo, surprisingly, isn’t doing well this year.
Amigo and I tied last week, and not for first. Who knows what’s next? So far this week, I’m in the lead. Come on Packers, do right for me!
