    Sup Boys!

    So I’ve been looking for awhile now, but I have just decided to become a member. Instead of just posting an introduction as the first post I make, I feel myself compelled to give something – even if most people don’t care.

    I’ve always been a fan of football, and I’ve gotta think there’s at least some of those here. So here is a link for free nfl football picks. One more time, I have no doubt it isn’t relevant, but I was sure it’s more useful than a boring question.

    Thanks!
