The NFL season kicks off tomorrow with the Saints visiting Green Bay. Which reminds me of one thing... football is king. If you play fantasy football you have drafted your team at this point, in fact you may have drafted several. If you like you wager, checking out lines and props for week one has been your passion over the last week. If you have not yet jumped into the BFTB survivor pool, that is another way for you to enjoy this beautiful sport.

(Shameless plug: Like the BFTB Tickets page and enter the contest on the page for your chance to win Chargers tickets!)

One thing holds true to football fans more than who survives, more than the spread, and more than fantasy football. It's the good ole' fashioned football pool! I remember (way) back when I was 10 years old walking around the neighborhood collecting a dollar from each house and jotting down their picks for the upcoming Sunday. Yes, at the age of 10 I was running the neighborhood football pool (don't judge).

Our friends over at XTRA Sports 1360, home of High Boltage Radio have set up an NFL Pick'em with weekly prizes and all! This is your invitation to jump into the contest. Simply click here, log in and make your picks.

Last season I was the pick'em champion on another station that will remain unnamed. With that said, I only feel it is fair that I give you my picks for week one. Let the smack talk begin!
