I watched the Bolts game and they did deliver, and would have won were it not for some really terrible calls at the end of the game.

Geez, I can't wait for the replacement refs to finally get back on the field. At least their mistakes were honest mistakes.

You are so right, as this story confirms: http://tinyurl.com/8uhnvea

"Mojo's Best Bets" hits 2 out of 3, including the "Upset Special." That Indy win over the Packers sure was sweet, wasn't it?

Exactly why I am condemned to watch most games in solitude.

It definitely looks like the Colts made the right choice with their #1 pick. That ended being one of the best games of the day, and I'm happy for the franchise

The Bolts would have won had it not been for a random late-hit penalty on a dumb rookie lineman, on the exact play where Brees threw a pick-6.

Which illustrates why it's so hard to pick winning underdodgs.
