The picks, week 9

Big morning. The preschool Halloween parade and party was today. Once again, my suggestion of dressing the little guy in a mafia-related costume was vetoed. So simple to put together, too. A velour sweatsuit. White shoes. Slick the hair back. Add a couple of white streaks in the hair above the ears. Boom. Little Paulie Walnuts. But my wife, as usual, was adamantly against dressing our 3-year old as a Sopranos' mobster. Not much I can do, either. It's been two years but I still haven't lived down the fact that his first words (after mama and dada) were "Oh, (expletive deleted)!", and it was pretty much all my fault. But 2008 was a tough year to watch the Yankees.

At least I solved one mystery. The kids call the preschool teachers by their first names, but with a twist. Miss Suzie. Miss Jane. Miss Denise. Explains why he once called me Miss Daddy. I put an end to that quick, but he still forgets on occasion when he really wants something and is laying it on thick by trying to be extra polite. Kid might have a career in politics. Or as an infomercial pitchman.

Here are the picks. Don't forget to get them in before the UConn-West Virginia game Friday night at 8.
