Football Jesus (10/10)



After a successful week in the pool, American Radio presenter Toby Knapp turned again to his sportsbook shaman, Football Jesus, for advice on this weekend's NFL action.

"It's going to be interesting, I've taken all the sure thing survivor pool bets, and there's a bunch of obvious and not so obvious stuff happening, and, of course, if you want to win, you've gotta have the balls to make some picks which make you nervous," Knapp said. "As Joe Daddio would say, that's why they call it 'gambling'," he added.

Knapp and Football Jesus again raised questions as to the legitimacy of the spread points in the office pool, hinting that George Cappelini Junior, a music industry executive and fan of the band POP EVIL, might have sinister motives.

"These spreads continue to make people wonder exactly what crack might be smoked when they're posted," Knapp said. "There's no way any smart bettor, like FBJ, would take these lines in Vegas, they're whack, like Whitney Houston on smack back when she was with Bobby Brown," he added.
