Bullfighting, Josh Dhani and Keith’s Week 6 picks

Hernandez and I took a bye week last week from our picks column as I travelled to Spain, particularly Barcelona which translates loosely from Spanish into  “land of beautiful women on mopeds”.   They should strongly consider making this an Olympic sport by the time they get to to Rio de Janeiro.  I was discussing with some Brits while I was there that all you really need to get by without any Spanish is ‘hola’, ‘gracias’ and ‘cerveza por favor’, but now I need to add “¿Puedo satisfacer me siento en la parte posterior de su motocicleta?”  (May I please sit on the back of your motorcycle?)

Hernandez, meanwhile, with his belief that Dolphins can play football, went a paltry 7-9.  For shame!  Losing to the soccer fan!  Stop watching preseason hockey and the Disney Channel and start paying attention.

I’m now up 34-14 to 23-25.  Good start, me.
