Princess Pick Updates; The Camel Picks’em Wrong The Past Two Weeks

For those having a little fun keeping track of Princess the Camel’s NFL picks I need to give an update after missing the past two weeks, NFL weeks 10 & 11.

Last week I missed posting about Princess’s choice to take the NY Giants over the S.F 49ers, I got busy with post election stuff and honey-do lists. Princess picked the Giants to beat the 49ers in that game out on the left coast believing that Eli Manning would be able to rally the team from behind once again late in the game if necessary. And if it wasn’t for an injury on defense to Middle-linebacker Michael Boley, the Giants might have held their opposition and allowed Eli to make the comeback complete.
This weeks game for week 11 went off last night between the NY Jets vs the Denver Broncos. Due to the game being played on Thursday night this week, I didn’t check in with Princess early enough this week to see her pick.
In last night’s game, Princess like most of us, assumed that the Jets would handily take care of Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos but you remember what the say about assuming… Poor plays on offense (interception returned for a touchdown) and defense (Tebow 20 yard touchdown run on third and 4 with a minutes to play) had the Jets crashing to earth and the Broncos sitting high in their saddles eking out the 17-13 victory.
We’ll have to wait to see next week if Princess rights her recent losing ways but for those now keeping score, after losses the past two weeks Princess’s record stands at 6W-5L

NFL Week 9 Giants Vs. Patriots – Princess Picks’em

Last week as most of you all know, Princess the prognosticating Camel of Lacy Township’s Popcorn Park Zoo, picked the Giants to beat the hapless and winless Miami Dolphins. Thanks to the Giants playing down to their competion, as was the worry last week, the Giants nearly lost the game and continued Princess 3 game losing streak. Thankfully for Princess fans (and the Giants), her losing streak was broken and she returned to her winning ways and raised her pick record to 5-3 for the season.

This week the game that Princess will be covering is the Giants Vs. Patriots. It’s a tough game to pick, the Giants are entering the game as 9 point underdogs but that doesn’t deter Princess, who went with her heart instead of her head and picked the Giants to upset the Patriots this week.

After fretting over her choice this week and questioning her decision to take the Giants over the Pats, Princess’s handler John tried to console her doubts about the pick, “Hey girl, it’s okay to pick with your heart instead of your head and who knows, anything can happen. It’s not like they haven’t done it…”

Will the Giants comeout on top this week and extend both their and Princess’s winning streak or will the Patriots prevail, disappointing both Giants and Princess fans? We’ll find out Sunday afteroon.

Football Friday: Princess Picks The Giants


Week 3 of the NFL season is upon us and Princess the Camel, of Popcorn Park Zoo in Lacy Township has chosen another New York team this week to defeat its opponent.

Last week as everyone should know by now, the great prognosticator of the park, picked the Jets to upset the Patriots. It was a pick that had some scratching their heads but proved to be right on.

This week Princess forecasts the Giants to swashbuckler their way through Tampa and beat the Buccaneers.

“I think coach Coughlin is going to fix that run defense this week, and Eli looks like he is finally living up to the Manning pedigree. Now on to more important things …” said Princess after picking the Giants this week.

So far this season Princess is 1-1 with her picks.
