Confession time.

I didn’t watch the game on Saturday. I was at a funeral and I figured I’d just catch some of the great plays somewhere later. Then I learned the score and heard some details. I decided there was nothing I needed to watch.

Instead, I’m going to pretend that last weekend was a bye week. That game never happened. As the resident optimist and writer of 5 to Win, I think it’s best.

Now here are your flakes.
