Game 6, tonight, 8:05ET

The Sports Guy's account of being at Fenway Park for the Game 4 & 5 heroics of SeƱor Octubre is not to be missed. (The dizzying highs, the terrifying lows, the creamy middles, etc.).

I sincerely hope, for Simmons' sake if nothing else, that the Red Sox pull off this wild comeback. It'll soothe the pain of his abject failure in progressing towards his bakery-in-the-sky goal of being 50 games over .500 on his NFL picks this year. (Through Week 6, he's 46-39-3. Not awful by any means, but not the kind of pace (which is a false concept in gambling anyway) that will get him to 150-100-6). (Holy Brackets! I must be channelling Bob.)

I'll also note unhumbly that the prediction I made at the bottom of this post came true - mostly. He didn't quite say the exact sentence in his Week 5 column (the explicit Lesson in it was, "Never put all your eggs in one basket on a team with only one above-average offensive player, especially when that same player is plea bargaining a federal indictment in a drug conspiracy case that same week."). However, the teaser for the column on the SGW page was right there in white & black: "The lesson is, as always, I'm an idiot."

Speaking of which, whatever happened in your NFL Survivor Pool? Did I miss the update?

Yeah, I picked the Packers at home in Week 2 to beat the Bears. OUT!
