TOP OF THE TOWN – I’m a little scared this week for the Seattle Seahawks. Minnesota doesn’t have a good record (1-3), but are playing tough football and just could give the defensively challenged Hawks a good go. I’m still sticking with the Hawks, but this could be the week they get shot down. So far in my quest to predict winners in football I am 56-21-1 (71.8 percent), but it wasn’t a good last week. I went 18-12, including 10-8 in colleges. I have been doing this predicting since I was a little kid and my experience has told me that in a typical football season there are two weeks when upsets are scattered throughout. The first one was last week. This week I worry about Texas at Oklahoma (it should be a Red River shootout), Texas Tech at Iowa State, Arkansas at Auburn and Kansas State at TCU. It’s much more difficult to predict the pro game because on any given Sunday what looks like a sure winner can turn into a surprising loser. That applies this week to the unbeaten Seahawks 4-0) hosting Minnesota, Houston hosting Jacksonville with a new coach, Miami at injury-plagued San Francisco and Indianapolis at suddenly blooming Cleveland. Good luck, and stay safe.

Be well pal.

Be careful out there.

Have a great day.

You are loved.
