Hey Folks we are back, and just like the NFL we get some bye weeks too. The last two weeks I have had some interesting experiences with a company that offers to give you sports picks for a price. The first week I contacted them I got a free pick as advertised and it was a winner. "AWESOME"is what I thought, I did had a friend of mine contact them and he got a free pick, and it was a winner "AWESOME TIMES 2" All the time they told me that yes these picks are free, but we normally charge $500.00 a week. "WOAH" is what I thought I mentioned to them that I am not a big gambler, that the most I ever wagered on a game was $100.00, the service then on mention you get 7 picks for $250.00 this week. I told them I would have to think about it. I spoke to my buddy who had gotten a free pick as well and he said it may be worth the expense, again I had to think about it. So my buddy received more calls from them and finally my buddy broke down and said "hey I only have $220.00 bucks" They guy was like "I'll charge your card only $200.00 and i'll give you seven picks" the service then went on to give him two picks that day and they were both winners. I wish I could tell you the story ends with them just giving us more and us still paying them $500.00 a week since we are winning and they are winning. Well what happened over the next week was just not call, they kept harassing my buddy to up sale him to $4,500 a month for a month's worth of picks and of course if he is only wagering a small amount how can one start the week when your minus $4,500?
The final outcome was my buddy stopped taking their calls and he never got the rest of picks he was due. Overall he went 5 &1 with their picks, but any winnings he got, he put towards his life bills and couldn't double up , or make a huge score, had the service just done what it promised to do, I bet my buddy would have started making bigger bets and paying a bigger weekly fee with this company, but all well.
Now on to tonight's action. Teasing is what is going on tonight and it goes like this
MIAMI FLORIDA +3
MIAMI FLORIDA vrs NORTH CAROLINA
SEATTLE vrs ARIZONA
Good luck to all tonight

"The Hipsters are coming . THE HIPSTERS ARE COMING" Are what they screamed as the announcement of this Beer Garden was going to be opened. Well to be honest if Hipsters love Artisan Sausages and Fancy Hot Dogs, then I expect to come in my the hundreds. But I am not a Hipster and I am not really sure what one is, but I didn't like my experience at The Lock Yard. Let me break it down for you
First I really liked the Pink Lemonade
It was not too sweet it was refreshing and provided a nice exhilarating quenching of my thirst. It all went down hill from there. I found the menu limiting if I was in the mood for hot dogs and sausages maybe I would have had a different experience, so I tried to make the best of my limited options and ordered a Kings Smoked Beef and Cheddar Sausage with onions. I'm not sure what the bread roll was that they gave it to me in but it dwarfed the sausage and I felt like all I was tasting was onions . Along with my order I ordered waffle fries with two dipping sauces. The first sauce I order was Carolina Gold BBQ and Sweet Bourbon Mustard. The Carolina Gold BBQ was really good, but the Sweet Bourbon Mustard was not sweet or any good, I spoke to a manager about it , he came back with replacement sauce but I didn't taste any improvement. When my fries arrived I thought things were picking up since they brought what appeared to be two portions of fries, now I started thinking "interesting generous portions of fries". When my bill came I got the bad news that for every dipping sauce I ordered , I apparently ordered another portion of fries. So I don't know if my server was just bad or this is a normal practice at The Lock Yard. Along with my experience I ate outside.
It looked nice at outside, but as you see it was pretty empty. Overall I didn't have a good experience , but I am willing to give the place another try, but nexttime I'll be in the mood for some hot dogs.
Today we have a special edition of Not for Losers, not only do we have my mush friend's pick, but I have the pick of an expert. Since game time is in an hour I will spare you the mush loss of the week and just give you his pick and the experts pick.
The Mush likes 49ers -3.5 and the over 42.5.
The Expert likes the 49ers -3
Good Luck and use at your own risk. I am actually taking the experts advice tonight :-)

"I quit" is what my mush friend told me this week as I was asking for his pick for tonight's game. He gave me the run around, I finally found out that he didn't really quit and went on to bet the over on Monday night's game, of course he lost. As game time is only 1.5 hours away, I'll spare you the long version and just tell you what my mush friend is betting tonight. He likes Philly and the over.
Best of luck , use at your own risk

Welcome to this weeks edition of N.F.L. (Not of Losers). Last weekend I was in Atlantic City with my Mush friend and I witnessed him loss with pocket Aces all in pre-flop not once, not twice, but four times. On one of those occasions he even flopped a set and lost to runner runner straight. In true gambling form this didn't stop my mush friend from betting on the Pats -12.5 and Over on last Thursday nights game, sorry fans for dropping the ball on not letting you know that little nugget of gambling wisdom, but to make it up to you I asked him for his "lock" of the week. He likes N.Y. Giants +4 and Under 55 points. As always I say use this knowledge how ever you wish , but at your own risk lol.
Know more then my loser friend

The Jets won an exciting game to day on a last second field goal, that was set up by a penalty by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jets Fans have gone crazy are partying in the streets and claiming that a super bowl is only 20 weeks away.
Well Jets Fans I wanna show you what happened the last time you were overly excited about a QB that won a game for you
I still think this Geno's is the best on the east coast.

Tonight is the night, FOOTBALL Begins, but here at PTU we are bias . We all bleed blue, except for Bottle who every once in a while claims to be a Jets fan. So instead of breaking down tonight's game we will break down the up and coming season. First lets look at the schedule.
1 Sep 8 @ DAL. Giants own Dallas at Dallas, I don't expect this season to be any different 1-0
2 Sep 15 DEN Denver is a Super Bowl favorite and Peyton is going to have extra days to prepare against the Giants 1-1
3 Sep 22 @ CAR Giants should handle Cam Newton and the Panthers easily 2-1
4 Sep 29 @ KC Even thou Kansas City is greatly improved they won't be improved enough to beat the Giants 3-1
5 Oct 6 PHI By this Point in the season I expect the Eaglas offense to gel and finally start beating othere teams and one of those teams will be the Giants 3-2
6 Oct 10 @ CHI Bears don't scare me and they won't scare the Giants 4-2
7 Oct 21 MIN When I think of the Vikings I think of Nightmare games for Eli , I don't know why they have his number but they do 4-3
8 Oct 27 @ PHI By this point the Giants should be able to adjust to the Eaglas new offense and beat them 5-3
Week 9 Bye
10 Nov 10 OAK Come on its the Raider 6-3
11 Nov 17 GB Now if your a Giants fan like me you know they always lose 3 games in a row , so expect a loss here 6-4
12 Nov 24 DAL here 6-5
13 Dec 1 @ WAS BUT what wait Redskins during week 13 , but this point RG3 won't be as quick and agile as he might be during weeks 1,2, or 3. Giants win a close one 7-5
14 Dec 8 @ SD Chargers are terrible 8-5
15 Dec 15 SEA Seattle was impressive last year , but as you know that means nothing in the NFL I look for the Giants to win this game 9-5
16 Dec 22 @ DET Lions shouldn't be playing for anything at this point, Giants will be playing for the Division . I expect the Giants to take care of business. 10-5
17 Dec 29 WAS If I thought RG3 would have health problems in week 13, by week 17 he should be in a wheel chair or on the sidelines. Giants win this game and the Division 11-5
So the Giants are going 11-5 how will that happened?
Its all about Eli Manning if he throws for 250 to 300 yard every game, they won't be losing. If he throws for more then 300 yards I expect that to be a bad thing as they will be far behind and need him to light it up. David Wilson needs to come up big in the running game and protect Eli in the passing packages.
Giants were Ranked 31st in total Defense in 2012. This has and will improve in 2013. I expect the D line and Line backers to be the strong points of this defense with the secondary improving the most.
Either way 2013 is looking to be an exciting year for the NY Giants and Giants fans.

Hello PTU readers and welcome to what will hopefully be a weekly segment. I like to call this segment "Not For Losers" Its where I select one match up during the N.F.L. season and ask how my mush friend who he likes in the game and then bet the opposite. Now why would I bet the opposite? Well this man was once a millionaire and I never seen him win a sports bet when his life depended on it and at this point of his life it does. He is running colder than an Eskimo in a freezer, well enough of my banter. Here is his pick for Thursday Night
Denver -8.5 and Under 48
You should take advice from people how know more then me

him. Zimmerman isn't history's greatest monster either. That's her. One thing is absolute though: George Zimmerman is half White and half Hispanic just like some of our writers here at PTU. And also just like these folks:
5) Tony Romo
While I originally thought Mark Sanchez was half White, it turns out that he's not at all. He's all Mexican. But Dallas Cowboys quarterback is indeed only half of a Mexican. He might try and hide his Latino side by only dating blond White girls and rarely if ever driving a car service, but it's there. Mexicans and White people can argue over which side is the one that tosses all those interceptions and chokes in the playoffs.
3) Juan Epstein
2) Charlie Sheen
1) Jessica Alba

For some of you its your birthday today, for about a few million people in the United States today marks the end of tax season. If for some reason you haven't filed your taxes yet, you should get an extension. I'm not providing you with any tax advice, but if you want to know how to do it, the IRS has a link for you.
I would like to point out the most important part of what the IRS has to say in that link.
"Please be aware that an extension of time to file is NOT an extension of time to pay."
I hope you all enjoy this tax season , not sure how you can but I couldn't think of a better way to end this post.

Two months ago I wrote about how the Knicks Season was over, http://pardontheunemployment.blogspot.com/2013/02/knicks-season-is-over.html
they had just lost 4 in a row and they 4th loss was to the Raptors. I am making this apology not because they recently one 12 in the row I am making it because I was a dumb angry fan. So first off let me say I am sorry Knick nation and second of all I am happy I flew off the handle that just means I care. I try to forget those Knick years that Johnny Bagels knows to well, where they had clowns playing for them and very clowner coaches. In short I want to say regards of the seasons outcome its light years better then those sad dark Knick years and I'm sorry.

Enjoy it for now, fellow haters. While the taste of defeat is sweet, alas it is short lived. The Heat are still a dominant team, and I know I wasn't the only person who felt like Miami would still pull a win out of their ass even when they were down 9 with 2 minutes left. And they were a defensive rebound away from having a chance to make it a one possession game with about a minute left but Carlos Boozer (who made some great and some really, really stupid plays last night) scored on a put back to seal it. They've shown they're on another level when they really focus and it's a scary thing for every other team and fan base in the NBA. But, there's a slight glimmer of hope that the haters can take solace in. The short-handed Bulls who started Nazr Mohammed in place of Joakim Noah (ugh) and still without D Rose pushed the Heat around a bit and frustrated LeBron, so much so that he committed his first flagrant foul since 2007 (which oddly enough was on Wade back when James was with the Cavs) on a elbow to the chest of Boozer. It was strange to see, the usually unflappable LeBron losing his cool like that. That's usually the stuff that mere mortal hot heads like Carmelo pull. But the Bulls pushed, bumped and even tackled (see the photo above) LeBron all night and provided a blueprint for other teams to maybe have a chance against Miami. Much like the bad boy Pistons employed the "Jordan Rules" which was little more than just sending 3 of their goons to assault MJ on every drive to the basket, Chicago basically let Bron and the Heat know that if they were going to beat them it would hurt. But oh does it feel good to be a hater today. Enjoy it for now, my comrades in Heat Hate. We might not like LeBron when he's angry.
