Prediction Friday Returns: Ravens vs. Chiefs
We’re cracking open the bubbly. And not the cheap stuff either.
This champagne comes all the way from French Lick, Indiana.
Only the best for my patrons.
We’re celebrating because you have made it to our first true, football Prediction Friday of the late summer.
If you are new around here, Prediction Friday is simple. It’s a fiesta and party all wrapped into one.
Basically, the deal is this: Each Friday we share our predictions for the upcoming Ravens game. The one who is closest to the score gets a free drink chip and the adoration of his barkeep and fellow patrons for a full week.
(Neither is worth anything, but this is a fake bar people. What do you expect?)
If you hit it straight on, it’s a free bar tab for a week and your name in Christmas lights over the sports mural on the front wall.
The tiebreaker – if we need one – is if you correctly select the hero of the game (decided at my discretion to give me a better chance of winning).
But since this is the very special week one, we have even more fun and games on tap (bad bar pun). I also need your prediction for the Ravens’ season record.
I’ll keep them and get back to you in January. Last year, almost no one had them over .500. My guess is that changes today. We'll have this run all weekend, and you can make your prediction up until kickoff.
OK, here is my entry: I say the Ravens win 23-6. Todd Heap catches two TDs for hero of the game.
And the Ravens go 11-5 in 2009.
