Everyone should start their morning with a little Danish...

And Josephine Skriver is a little Danish!!!

AMAZING!!! We have the NBA playoffs rocking, the NHL beards have started the long, long, LONG march toward Lord Stanley’s Cup, baseball is in full swing, the UEFA Champions League is heading toward the semi-finals, and yet, the LEAD stories on most of the sports websites is the NFL. WOW! Totally understand that the NFL is the CASH COW for the betting public, and attracts almost twice as much money as the next sport, but C’MON, it’s just the release of the schedule, and everyone is FREAKING out. Kudos to the NFL marketing machine which has NO peer. If you’re ready to handicap the opening week, the Patriots have opened as a -7 point favorite over the Chiefs with an over/under total of 50. I’m not ready to jump in yet, but if you need a taste of all the openers, keep reading.

Gonna go to the mountains, the Rocky Mountains, and check out an over/under total on the baseball board. The total is 11 in tonight’s Rockies/Giants game, and it looks like the temps in Denver could drop into the 40s. Normally, the scores at Coors Field are crazy high, but this season, and it’s just a small sample, the Rocks have gone under five times and over only once in six home games (not including last night). My weather guys tell me we could be looking at gusty winds as well, so it might be tough for these teams to put 11 runs on the board. Also like Colorado starter Antonio Senzatela, who strolls to the mound with a sweet 2.37 ERA. Gimme half a Benjamin on the low side. And if the winds are blowing IN at over 30 mph, make it a FULL Benj! Of course if it's sunny and calm, forget everything I just said.
