Carry on.

While its certainly plausible, I think its highly unlikely you get laid a lot.

Re: Playoff Picture - Its quite possible

Well, it was pretty wildly unfreaking plausible that Brett Favre would heave that crazy ball instead of the Vikings kicking a field goal, in fact it was about as far away from plausible as you can humanly get...so you can say whatever you want about plausible, probable, and likely, talk about your 8.5% chance of this or 15% odds of that... it is football after all, they do have to play these games still. So I'm putting ALL my chips on "possible" for right now, and when the wheel stops spinning, we will find out if the Saints get to move into the big high-roller suite upstairs or if we sleep in the gutter outside. But this year I'm gonna stay at the roulette table until they either turn the lights out or I am removed by security.
