Picking winners for Week 2 NFL games

Never trust clowns, carnies or the San Diego Chargers.

I knew about the first two since I was a child. The Bolts, though? I always thought they were harmless. At least, until I needed them to give me my rightful Hero pick on Monday night.

You all know what happened. A 28-7 lead turned into a 31-28 loss to the Houston Texans. Instead of a hard-earned 9-7, I go 8-8 and now I'm writing this stupid intro. The Champion Of The Underdog®, doomed by fate once more.

To express my disillusionment, I will pick against the Chargers every week for the rest of the season. You can't hurt me anymore, Philip Rivers Ground Balls. For I am free.
