the week seven picks: a long promised theme comes to life
13. at Colts (-1 1/2) 17, Browns 10. Not much redeemable about this one, other than Andrew Luck. And, in honor of Mr. Luck, my 13th ranked TV theme song is, go figure, about "the luckiest dreamers who never quit dreaming!" Yup, this is your "Growing Pains" Game o' The Week!
12. at raiders (-6) 24, Jaguars 13. Well, both of these teams are a salvage job at this point ... so hit it! Your "Sanford and Son" Game o' The Week!
11. at Bills (-3 1/2) 31, Titans 13. For once, I don't hate the half a point. The Bills should easily cover. And speaking of things easily covered ... there are very few, if any, Beatles songs that are covered well. There's only one that's ever been better than the original, and it's the theme song to my second favorite show of all time. Joe Cocker covering "With a Little Help From My Friends", the theme to "The Wonder Years".
