Victory, thy name is New York Giants

Well, the Giants beat the cowboys (41-35), though to be fair, they faced a 1-4 Dallas team, who lost their QB with a broken clavicle in the first half. But this meant I finally won a week in my football pool. And due to an oversight, the overall leader in the pool fell asleep at the wheel and forgot to make his picks this week.

Correction, the previous overall leader. Because now the current overall leader is me. Heeeee!

Hubris aside, I hope I can keep the luck rolling because truth be told the previous leader is only in 2nd place after missing a week. Let's face it, that would be really embarrassing if he managed to win the overall with one less week of picks than the rest of us. Hmmm. Perhaps I should start reading NFL articles and get familiar with this league better. That Dez Bryant, he's a keeper.

On a tangential note, this is hopefully good news to my Words With Friends players--my good luck in the pool seems to coincide with my bad luck with tiles in my recent games. In the last 2 days, I lost 2 games in a row. Yes, Ras... and Lb..., that's why I lost. Fortunately, there isn't money on those games.

And on a completely different note, I took a quick People's Choice poll and currently, "Uptown Girl" is beating "Piano Man" as favorite Billy Joel song.

Losing Faith in Humanity Again, thy name is "Uptown Girl".

I am truly disgusted that those two songs are even in question together!
