    Here's the deal. One of my current roommates is a friend that I've known for years. We've made so many silly bets over the years, I don't even know where to begin. The ones that really get me is how he picks winning football teams. He knows nothing about football but his logic for choosing a winner is simple, lame and quite successful:

    1) Team colors
    2) Mascot

    *Examples*

    • Pittsburgh Steelers > San Francisco 49ers: Black and yellow are awesome colors. I like red but I hate gold so black and yellow win.
    • Atalanta Falcons > any other team: Black and red is the best color combination in the league.
    • New York Jet's > Houston Texans: Both colors suck but a jet flies over a bull so the jet wins.
    You get the idea. In all honesty, I want to punch him in the face over his win ratio, cause he actually wins quite often ... However, in my drunken brilliance last night, I came up with a GREAT idea. Let's test this theory out for every game during the regular season. Spent sometime in excel this morning and the bet is on. We're only looking at $100 but my bragging rights will hopefully shut him up forever.

    Wish me luck!

    Atlanta at Chicago Atlanta Atlanta has Best colors
    Cincinnati at Cleveland Bangels beat the browns cause both colors suck and a tiger beats no mascot
    Buffalo at Kansas City Although white / red beats blue / red, a chief hunts down the buffalo so chiefs win.

    NY Giants at Washington Washington beats NY cause it's a Chief
    Seattle at San Francisco A Seahawk flies over a 49er
    Minnesota at San Diego Doesn't like blue / gold and the viking is way cooler
    Carolina at Arizona Cardinal colors are dope and the icon is way cool so Arizona
    Dallas at NY Jets (Flys over a cowboy and crashes into him)
    New England at Miami The dolphin icon sucks and the colors are too
    Oakland at Denver I hate Oakland cause I grew in the bay area



    He was 9 & 7
