It’s amazing what a little success can do for you. Just a month ago, our man, Gil Lock of Ryno Rife Sports Handicappers, couldn’t pick his nose. So bad was his performance that we here at Rife With Opinions turned to his wife, Jill, to steady the ship. But, now, after posting a 6-2-1 record over the past three weeks, it seems that people can’t get enough of Gil. Here’s a sampling of a few emails we received this week.
from sallypipes- …so thanks for the tip on Idaho. It reminded me of a girl I once dated. Is it possible we’ve met? I think I went to school with a Gil Lock. Did you go to San Giamino Junior College?
from 2dollarjd- …and used some of my winnings to buy coffee for the guys at work. The dopey kid screwed up my order and dripped sweat all over the bag but everyone else enjoyed. Thanks.
from harrychriscaray- … Holy Cow. Me and Murphy gonna go out and get some women.
from northstar_CIT- … my boys at Hogs and Heifers got off you when you didn’t show early muscle but I stayed with you even though you failed to fire. I don’t mind laying heavy wood against a bad streak. I mean, you couldn’t be a dead piece forever. That’d be like the Yankees losing three straight to the Royals.
Jill was no slouch, herself, last week as she posted her third straight 2-1 week. Here are the lovely couple’s selections for Week 8.
Locks of the Week
The BCS rankings were the criteria for all of my picks this week. I selected teams that needed big, impressive wins to either move up or restore confidence after a poor performance.
