Picking winners for Week 12 NFL games

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.

It's no fluke. I'm in last. Dead last.

It feels pure. It feels real. It feels free.

Besides, NEWSFLASH: Last I checked, waltzing up to some semi-minxstress counter girl at Bob's Big Boy and announcing to the room that you've landed first or second or wherever in Around The League's weekly picks will not -- repeat, will not -- earn you a free low-grade roast-beef sandwich or even so much as a soiled napkin.

Sic Transit Gloria.
