Each week, the Around The League writer with the worst record in picks has to write our introduction. This week, that man is Marc Sessler.

Times are grim.

Small children are picking pro football games with more success than me. A nonthinking forest animal could go .500 on any given week -- but I can't.

Our world is transient. Fleeting. Passing away.

I go with the wind.
