Princess Says, Raiders Over The Jets This Week

After starting the 2001 NFL season off with a perfect 2-0 record pick record, this week Princess the Camel is picking the underdog Oakland Raiders to beat the NY Jets in their match-up out west this weekend.

When questioned by her handler John, as to why Princess decided to go out on a limb and make what would seems to be a reach in picking the Raiders this weekend Princess responded, “Hey, John, I’m pretty good at making a long stretch… Besides, what did you say earlier? “On any given Sunday”!!”

Is this a good pick by Princess; should we bet the house on it?

What do you think? I happen to agree, the Raiders are playing some good ball so far this season and I think they could surprise the Jets and pull this one off.
