My well-thought-out NFL playoff predictions (with Lily's help):
Jaguars over Patriots
Bengals over Steelers
Panthers over Giants
Buccaneers over Redskins
The highlight of my weekend so far? A 158-point word in Scrabble. INFECTED through the F from one red triple word square to another. (For those of you who think it should be worth 185 points, I used a blank for the C). I finished with a respectable 483 points, 52 below my all-time record. Laurel and I are tied 1-1 in 2006.
Yes, I could have played INFESTED but that wouldn't have been any fun.
One more prediction: I will crush the competition in tonight's tournament. You know who you are. Prepare to be crushed, like ice, tomatoes, tomatillos, spirits, aluminum cans, and apricot pits. Prepare to walk the streets of Altadena, dazed and without transportation (for I took your cars as well as your chips), communication (for I took your cellphones for parts), or wives (collateral).
