A couple weeks ago Protime and Mrs. Protime went for a walk. When they got back, the door was locked and Protime had forgotten the keys. When Protime checked the other door and all of the first-floor windows he found they were all locked also. This created quite a dilemma. After weighing his options, Protime decided to get the ladder out of the garage and climb in through a second story window if one was not locked.
After a few attempts Protime finally found and jimmied up an unlocked window. As he crawled through the opening his belt got stuck on something and there Protime was, half in and half out. All of a sudden, the window fell on his buttocks pinning him even more. As luck would have it a neighbor saw Protime’s predicament and called the fire department. When the ladder truck pulled up to Protime’s house everyone on the block came to see what was going on. They all smiled and shook their heads seeing Protime’s lower torso hanging out of the window.
Protime was smiling too last week as he went 25-2 and correctly picked a couple of upsets. That puts him at 154-39 (.792) for the season. Protime thought he would skip his weekly preview of a few games for the week. So here are the 8th week’s predictions by the famed foreteller of football.
