In one of my best picking days of the year I got by Sneads City Commissioner Tim Arnold, hitting 9-of-10 picks to his 8-of-10.
That upped my season mark to 4-7-1, which really ain’t nothing to write about.
This week I do have something to write about though, as my opponent is, which I’m very proud to say, my godson Charleston Mosley.
Charleston is the 8-year-old son of Bernard and Michelle Mosley and is a second grader at Gretna Elementary. When he was born his parents honored me by naming me his godfather and really now, before I knew it, he has reached eight years old.
He plays football in the Quincy Recreation Department’s program. His positions are wide receiver and running back on the Colt team.
Brothers Taye, age 17, and Bernard Jr., age 9, are also a part of the family as is granddad Charleston who is instrumental in getting little Charleston and the rest of the Little Moore Gospel Singers to their events.
Little Charleston, by the way, is the group’s lead singer.
And that leads us into my godson’s picks this week…..
MARYLAND over BOSTON COLLEGE - I’ve seen Maryland play.
FSU over IDAHO - My cousin Ashley Mosley is a FSU cheerleader.
EAST CAROLINA over N.C. STATE - The Pirates have a good team.
PITT over SYRACUSE - FSU killed Syracuse.
DUKE over WAKE FOREST - Devils beat the ‘Canes.
FLORIDA over GEORGIA SOUTHERN - I love the Gators.
MISSOURI over MISSISSIPPI - Mizzou is pretty good.
ARKANSAS over MISSISSIPPI STATE - I like the Razorbacks.
TEXAS A&M over LSU - Johnny Football is something else.
FAMU over BETHUNE - COOKMAN - I pull for the Rattlers too.
And I’ll try these picks to pull by Charleston….
BOSTON COLLEGE over MARYLAND - Eagles run by, don’t fly by Terps.
FSU over IDAHO - The FSU cheerleaders could probably win this game.
EAST CAROLINA over N.C. STATE - The Pirates do have a good team.
PITT over SYRACUSE - Orange is probably still shell-shocked.
DUKE over WAKE FOREST - How bout them Devils!
FLORIDA over GEORGIA SOUTHERN - If Gators can hold the flags down.
MISSISSIPPI over MISSOURI - Feel like an upset is in the making.
MISSISSIPPI STATE over ARKANSAS - Bulldogs too physical.
LSU over TEXAS A&M - Tigers claw Johnny Football.
BETHUNE-COOKMAN over FAMU - Rattlers glad this season is ending.
Charleston, little buddy, I’m proud of you, though we differ FIVE times. You did a good job picking the games.
