Wow, look at the power of the lock. rcade got three of the four games correct last week, but the one he got wrong was the only one he locked. Therefore, only five net points.

It wasn't even a full moon last week. Wha hoppen?

I spent a lovely 2 1/2 hours this afternoon with the 'phone on speaker waiting for a human so I could complete my annual enrollment for Medicare Supplement and Prescription Drug insurance. You young whippersnappers just don't know what you are in for. The tech part went easily. Found the plans, put them into the electronic shopping cart, filled out the questionnaire, and hit Submit. Then the site told me I needed to call and make a "voice signature". I called, thinking it would be just a few minutes. Yeah, right. Had to listen to the agent repeat a several paragraph agreement containing many multi-syllable tongue twisters that she had no end of problems with, then had to swear on the life of my only child that I had filled out the questionnaire honestly. Such a fun day.

Maybe the picks will be easier, but Cleveland will not be staying in a Trump hotel in NYC, the Clippers have started to take Doc Rivers seriously, Russel Westbrook is on a tear, and the Lakers have enough players that they can give you a game. here goes:

Cleveland by 6
Los Angeles Clippers by 4
Toronto by 9 SLAM
San Antonio by 10 SLAM
Oklahoma City by 12 SLAM
Los Angeles Lakers by 10
