Power Rankings

Wednesday October 1st, 2003

Guess what. My top nine teams all won this past weekend, and my No. 10, the Steelers, lost to someone ranked above them, so my board will remain unchanged. This means that everybody who complained so bitterly last week will have the same complaints this time, but since Jimmy won't call on the same folks two weeks in a row for the mailbag, I don't have to worry about them anymore. Diabolically clever, what? On the bottom end of the Power Rankings, six of my lowest seven lost, which keeps things fairly static down there, except in that neighborhood, any sign of life, win or lose, generally gets you a day trip to the country.
