XXL Mag Dot Com Family,

Are you fags geeked for the upcoming NFL season? Yeah, I know Michael Vick is still locked up but there are plenty of other players not even under indictment.

As a treat to all of you that have fucked with this column over the last how ever many months that XXL has broadcast it I decided to give back to the community.

The Any Given Billy X. Sunday football pool will kick off this year. The winner of the pool not only gets to be the king of the hill as far as commenters are concerned but I will copp them a pair of kicks for FREE with my XXL earnings. You people have earned it with your venomous hate and your inane chatter.

Step 1: Leave a comment on the thread that you want to play. Make sure that your e-mail address is legit. One request to play per person.

Step 2: Register your team name.

Step 3: Make your picks weekly prior to kickoff of that weeks first game.

Step 4: Talk shit.

We are playing the season with point spreads. Does everyone know how that shit works? The idea of the point spread is that the favored team has to win by at least that amount in order for it to actually win in the pool. For instance... If New England is favored by +6 points over Miami and the final score is New England 20 and Miami 15 then Miami is credited as winning that game.

The point spread separates the wheat from the chaff as well as the winners and the losers.

I'll post a drop weekly about who is in the lead and I will figure a way to tie it all into Hip-Hop/rap music since that is part of my contract here at XXL.

Don't wait too long to sign up. The pool only has fifty slots and I have occupied one of them my damn self.
