As I explained last week, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve expanded my weekly football thoughts to include some non-football stuff, primarily since I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have an enormous breadth of knowledge about the sport and donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t always get to watch games. That wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stop me from offering up some picks, but if you place bets based on them, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d be forced to characterize you as foolhardy.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve made no secret of the fact that football doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t rank particularly high on my sports hierarchy, placing behind pretty much every other major sport besides hockey, which I never got into. That said? ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s good to have football back, primarily because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s woven into what I believe to be the best time of year.
