AP NFL Poll and Survivor Pool

It's time to catch up on the AP's NFL Poll.  Here is the top 10:

1.  Tampa Bay:  2-0
2.  Los Angeles:  2-0
3.  Kansas City:  1-1
4.  Arizona:  2-0
5.  Oakland:  2-0
6.  Baltimore:  1-1
7.  Buffalo:  1-1
8.  San Francisco:  2-0
9.  Cleveland:  1-1
10.  Carolina:  2-0

This week, the Game of the Week features a rare 1 v. 2 matchup, with the Buccaneers heading west to take on the Rams at 3:25 Central on Sunday.  That should be a cracker.  That's also the only top-10 matchup that we have.

Here's what we've done in Survivor Pool so far:

Week One:  Los Angeles 34 - 14 Chicago
Week Two:  Cleveland 31 - 21 Houston (I survived both weeks)

This week, I'm going with the Broncos at home against the Jets.  I don't think the Jets will win their first game of the year at Mile High -- or whatever Denver's stadium is now called.

Survivor Pool Week 2

Here are the results so far:

Week one:  Los Angeles Rams 34, Chicago Bears 14 (I survived)

This week I have decided to go with the Cleveland Browns at home against the Texans.  I don't think the Browns will go 0-2 to start the season.

1984

Top-five countdown: 

5. Nina Blackwood 

4. Alan Hunter 

3. Martha Quinn 

2. Mark Goodman 

And, at No. 1, ....

But, to be clear, I loved Nina Blackwood.

HP Special Report: Ah, Paducah

This is an HP Special Report ... a conversation is unfolding this morning on the Facebook social-media platform (fanned by, among others, a star trumpeter in the 1984 Heath High School Marching Band of Pirates/former Boy Scouts of America Troop 4 patrol leader) about the history of Cardinal Point, and it is LIT!

 

Will advise as events warrant (i.e., comments flow!) ...
