Football Jesus (10/16)

Standing with a four way tie for eighth place in the Cap Pool, American Radio Presenter Toby Knapp again consulted his longtime shaman, Football Jesus, as the portly presenter prepared for week six picks in the NFL.

Knapp trails music industry insider and promotions rep Joe Daddio, who currently holds the first place spot in the pool with a 48-28 record so far this season, and seven others.

"Game on for another week, no lets go eat some gawddamned snacks," Knapp said as he hit the submit button on his picks from his studio office. "I don't know how it will go down, but it will go down, and all I know is that I'm prepared.

Surprisingly, aside from some comments about the low lines and overs assigned to different teams and games, Football Jesus and Knapp spared George Cappelini, Junior, son of George Cappelini , Senior, any wrath this week.

"I laid off George this week because I like the new single that he's been working on with Pop Evil, the band he loves with all of his life," Knapp shared. "Pop Evil are an amazing band, far better than Hinder, but the guys in Hinder can drink like fish, so I think they'll get a hall pass from any more bull***t from me this week," he said.

Pop Evil is a band which is known for their song "100 in a 55" which received considerable airplay on rock and pop stations in the US. They have nothing to do with this story, but have made their way into this story because they have GOOGLE alerts set, and they've probably received an email by now.
"If they're reading, I want them to know I care, and say hello," Knapp said.

Knapp also did not take any shots at Daddio, either.

"What can I say, I'm being tame today," Knapp said.

Knapp did reveal that he saw his old colleague, Cigar Dave,  from Tampa, who was in visiting and who hosted his national talk show from the Nation's Capital. The two shared a chat in Knapp's studio, but did not smoke any cigars in the studio complex.

"Having the General in the building is always an aeromatic experience, and I miss working with him daily," he added, revealing that the two talked about former colleagues in the Tampa Studios, including Kane, MJ Kelli, Todd Schnitt, Dan Diloretto, Russell Link, Chuck Deskins and more.

"All I needed was a stogie and some brandy, and it would have been like old times," Knapp said.

The talk with Cigar Dave had nothing to do with football.
