REAL MEN OF GENIUS: Regular Season ends … playoff time

If you’re a regular visitor to The Boys Are Back blog, please disregard this post. My son and I play a Pro Pick ‘Em game on Yahoo! Sports and it’s time to rub a few things in his face! haha

RMOG 2012 Regular Season overall - The Boys Are Back blog

Here is a screenshot of our Pro Pick ‘Em 2012-2013 Regular Season Overview. As you can see, it was another ass kicking … very similar to the 2011-2012 ass kicking you received last year! I thought you would ‘insist’ on me posting this public record … so that we can relish it for many years to come!  I’m trying to be humble, but it’s hard to do when you’re NUMBER 1 … the big cheese, the top dog … and the master of all I survey! As you can see, I waxed your butt by 307 points … and also dominated the W-L column. That’s a 65.88 percent winning percentage. You had the 54.90 percent winning percentage … which is cute. So damn cute. If you want, go ahead and print out a copy of this. It will look great on your refrigerator!

RMOG 2012 Regular Season - Weekly Performance

I knew you’d want to look at the weekly breakdown, so click on the image above to bring it to life … you know, make it larger … super-size it! Pay particularly close attention to the last seven weeks … and note the nice 7-game winning streak! Think of this as the 7-Eleven year … I won 7 in a row, Eleven overall. You did have those 3 wins … in week 3, 8, and 10. Not bad for a little feller! Also note that I had four weeks over 100 points, 116 being the highest points scored this season! I liked your 90 in week #8. Next year, go ahead and shoot for those 100’s! They really add up!!!

RMOG 2012 Week 7 - 12 of 13 winners - The Boys Are Back blog

It would be wrong for me not to point out this week 7 spanking! I, your dad, had the best week recorded in 2012 in our group … picking 12 winners. None of us got the elusive undefeated week … but, I’ll go ahead and knock out a few of those next season.

Well. It’s been fun. I’ve enjoyed it, once again. The new game starts in August … so that gives you a few weeks and months to think about this one! I’ll bring it up from time to time … because I’m sure you’ll want to be reminded …

Real Men of Genius: Week #4 results … with a video bonus!!!

CONGRATULATIONS to Robbie for winning week #4 with a 2011 YTD record 115 points in our Pro Pick’Em game; Real Men of Genius. For more bragging, just see his comment posted. I was going to brag for him, but he did a good job of that on his own! haha

Robbie rolls in week #4 ... breaks 100 points ... thirteen wins ... climbs up in overall points

 It’s been four weeks … and we’ve had four different winners. This week, it’s Reggie’s turn! haha

Week 4 Performance - Four weeks, Four winners!

Three consecutive 100+ point weeks puts robert D knight over 400 YTD!

As you know, Dallas has a bye week this week. They’re healing and preparing for the New England Patriots. Week #5 only has 13 games, because six teams are on their bye week breaks.

Good luck everyone!

RMOG: Week 3 picks due Sunday, before noon

CONGRATULATIONS to everyone for having a winning record in week 2! We all finished 8-8, or better. Week 3 features eight divisional match-ups, four conference games, and a former Superbowl (XVI/XXIII) re-match. Should be a challeging week! Good luck everyone!

CONGRATULATIONS to Carolyn for being the big winner in week #1. Carolyn and The Kiesters topped the rest of us with their 9-7 win/loss record … very nice for opening week! Dallas flies to San Francisco this week. Should be a good game! Good luck everyone!

Rockin Reggie hit a sour note on his scoring system … which only produced 59 points this week. Robbie’s still in the race with 69 points. Only 24 points separates us all … so, we’re all still alive for the RMOG 2011 crown!



RMOG: Congrats to The Kiesters and Reggie with opening game.

CONGRATULATIONS to Missy n Kurt (The Kiesters) and Rockin Reggie on their 16 point lead from the NFL’s opening game last night. That’s a GREAT way to kick off your 2011 season!
