NFL Picks Week #3: The Turf Show Times Weekly Picks

   So how exactly does one actually toot one's own horn? That's right TST'er, my stalwart band of writing brothers pale in comparison to my astute mind and keen eye when it comes to picking winners...

   Truthfully though, this really isn't the case. My choices were made with "straight-up" in mind. If it weren't for the betting line, I would have been in the middle of the pack and Mike D would be in the lead. Yet, as in life, a little rain must fall... So where does it say it has to fall on me? Grab an umbrella Mike D, and a few for the others, because I douse thee all!

   Now to keep my winning ways constantly improving, I've decide to pull out all the stops. I am going to create a Dream Team, of my very own. Built out of the TST faithful, we will take no prisoners and vanquish all before us... Heady stuff eh?

This weeks picks after the break!

   Taking my place this week is a TST rookie of sorts. He's mean, he's lean, he's a pickin' machine! You learned a bit about Taosman in the earlier front page profile. The reason for his choice? In the comment section of the first "Weekly Picks" post, he made mention of how cool it would be to let you TST rabble make choices too. So while we TST knights of the Van Bibber round table threw chicken bones over our shoulders, I pronounced "Let them eat cake!" Ryan immediately agreed, sort of... "No Doug, let them eat your cake!" So our Monte Python-esk team journey begins and I look forward to each and every one of you who join... That's right : Team TST

   How can you earn a place on Team TST? I actually have no idea? I think Ryan and Joe will perform some dark ritual that has something to do with puppy juggling while drinking copious amounts of cheap beer in hope of an epiphany. All I can say is: Stand ready people, because a poorly written e-mail from me could be winging it's way to you at any moment offering fame, fortune... and a chance to kick the TST staff's collective asses! Except mine of course. After all, it was my cake...


  Here are the Week #3 picks:
