Week Four Results

Anytime I've ever ordered Chicken McNuggets, when it comes to sauce-picking time, I've always gone with standard ketchup. Why? I'll tell you why. Because there's something unsettling about a dipping sauce that can be both sweet and sour at the same time. You know, kind of like this week's results.

The sweet: 9-4 on the spread.
The sour: 4-9 on the over/under.
For an overall 13-13 tally which, I suspect is what happens when the sweet blends with the sour to come off, well, neutral.

Season tally to date:
29-28-1 (spread)
19-39 (o/u)

48-67-1 (overall)
