Car Payments: Philadelphia -8 vs LA Lakers, Houston @ Utah O 209
The Cornfather was surprised by the Lakers’ performance. They stepped up to the plate on national TV. The Cornfather will put that in his memory bank.
Lunch Money: Iowa +7 @ Iowa State, Valparaiso +16 @ Purdue
Another wash, which we know the Cornfather hates.
Horse Racing (0-1)
Pony of the Day #4 Dr. Ann – Finished 4th at 21/1 in race 8 at Los Alamitos. The winner was never in question, but all we needed was ½ a length for second at a monster number. The Cornfather won’t beat himself up over that one.
Car Payment Play: New Orleans +2.5 @ Atlanta
This game went pretty much like the Cornfather expected. There wasn’t a correct side in this one, it was a complete coin flip. It looked like overtime at the worst for New Orleans before Brees threw an uncharacteristic pick in the end zone with a minute left. It was a very weird game with lots of penalties and Matt Ryan making some absurdly bad decisions. Both teams are tremendously talented and the Cornfather isn’t sure he learned anything moving forward. All in all, it was a sub-par Thursday for the Cornfather, which we didn’t know was possible based on his recent performance. I can’t wait for him to double down today.
