    You guys are great!   I don't feel quite so bad knowing that it isn't so obvious. 

    TFB12, T.S. Eliot looks like Pic 3 for sure.   Nice going!   How on earth did you know that?  I kinda wish his name was "Bill" though because in some wild configuration I was going with "Buff" for Pic1 and "Bill" for Pic3, leading to the Buffalo Bills.  And, now I can't seem to make T.S. Eliot fit either.  Is he saying we should only take the "TS"?  That could mean only the Saints or Jets (the only teams not on BYE that he hasn't already chosen).   Pic1 and Pic3 would fit the Saints.  Pic1 = New Orleans;  Pic3 = TS.   Pic2 = "sain"?  I dunno.

    NEGAME, I like your thinking.  We'll wait for others or Cyberknot to confirm this puzzle.



    Some good thinking going on here with you and NEGAME.  I don't want this one to end just yet, it's a good one.

    Picture # 1 - I will be disappointed if it is New Orleans because clearly it is RIO Carnival.

    Picture # 2 - Could be Fishing net, deep sea fishing net, deep water fishing net or even casting net.

    Picture # 3 and to answer your question - I remember reading T.S. Eliot "Waste Land" in school and had to do a report on it.  The interesting thing is that when you do an image search for T.S. Eliot  that picture cyberknot posted does not come up right away, you really have to search for it.  But when you do an image search for Thomas Stearns Eliot the picture comes up as one of the first choices.   So is Cyberknot using that picture as a clue for one of his writings or for TS?  If he typed in T.S. Eliot in an image search he would have used a different picture, maybe.  Get what I am saying?

    I know, we are reading way to much into this one.  Hahaha, I'm starting to thing NEGAME has it nailed.  The only thing that is stopping me is why on earth would anyone pick the Cardinals, especially since he is in the running for the top spot.



    I wasn't trying to be misleading with the photo. I was looking for Mardi Gras and saw this one and liked it. After I posted it I was sorry, it looked more like Vegas. Didn't even think of Carnival.

    Well Done nyjoseph.

    Ok, Cyberknot that was a good one.

    Cyberknot was throwing us off with the RIO Carnival photo, but that is also a mardi gras celebration, he was getting a little tricky with that.  Better start thinking about next weeks now, I expect a even harder one after this.  You have upped the standards now.



    TFB12, like I said when I first asked for help, I figured if we could determine who the guy was in Pic 3 the rest would fall in place.  You were the one that came up with T.S. Eliot.  That really narrowed it down to just 2 teams with names ending with "TS".  So, you deserve 95% of the credit.

    Oh, and great dig through the archives to bring up the back and forth on the Wooden Toothed Babe.   She's still gorgeous.  And you are still the best!

    LOL, thanks man but it was all you!   The key was you coming up with this...

    "There is a fishing net called the "seine" net.  From my French in school the pronounciation  would roughly fit the equivalent of "sain"."

    Brilliant!! 

    As far as wooden teeth, I will try and get you some better proof.

    Sure you weren't.   You were probably sitting back getting a kick out of watching us try and figure this one out.  If not for nyjoseph I would still be trying.  How did you like NEGAMES guess?  It wasn't correct but she sure had a good guess and ideas about it.

    Game's answer was more creative than mine, that's for sure. I'm glad it's not her pool, I'd have Arizona this week!

    LOL!  She was very creative in trying to figure this out. She is one of the good ones around here, that's for sure. 

    Looking forward to your next weeks pick.

    OK.  NORAD is picking up conflicting signals here.   BYE or Chicago?   Since you've already picked the Bears I'm putting you down for BYE.   Let me know if I'm mistaken.
