We’re on to week 10 of the NFL and we’ve actually got some legitimate matchups for a change. Let’s get right into the picks. Continue reading “Picks From The Pine: NFL Week Ten”
After two down years for the basketball program, Saint Louis University made two moves in the off-season: they re-designed their mascot, which will forever haunt your dreams, and they hired a new head basketball coach. That can only mean one thing. It’s time for us to help you Better Know a Billiken!
It is getting ever more difficult to pick 2 games of the week. There seems to be 1, “Eh that game could be ok” game and a bunch of “Why would I watch that game” matchups each week. This week we’re going with Denver at Oakland in what has to be the latest point in a season the Raiders have had a chance to take sole possession of 1st place since the Rich Gannon days. Rich Gannon is that even right? Or am I mixing up the last name with the bad guy from Zelda?
That’s how forgettable the Raiders have been. On to the pick!
The Chicago Cubs have won the World Series. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria! We break our PineCast silence to break down what turned out to be a pretty good World Series, and a better Game 7. And a quick preview of what this means for the St. Louis Cardinals going forward. Plus we preview our weekend NFL picks.

3 of the 4 1 loss teams didn’t have their starting quaterback for the 1st 4 weeks. 2 still don’t. And the other 1 lost team, the Seahawks, played to a 6-6 tie on Sunday night. In a true showcase of how “meh” the NFL has become.
I guess we’ll still do picks. Does anyone even care?
Welp, as you may have noticed, my streak ended after the 6-4 win on Saturday against the Flames. Starting a new streak tonight, and hopefully the Blues aren’t.
With the MLB playoffs winding down, and the NFL being completely unwatchable, I have been following the NHL more closely than usual. Here are my take-aways and observations from the first weeks of the season. Continue reading “Around The Rinks”
