Chucky’s Playoff Picks

Well, it’s playoff season – and that means Chucky spends a lot of time indoors, thinking about birds and cuddling up with himself. But he sees things regarding these football playoffs… Oh yes, he sees things.   Quincy (6-3) @ Lumen Christi (9-0): In an effort to shore up their defense, the Titans decide to have everyone lock arms and not move whenever Quincy has the ball. This confuses the Orioles, who can’t figure out what’s happening. Plus, it really builds team unity. PICK: Lumen Christi Hillsdale (7-2) @ Hanover-Horton (8-1): The Comets host a non-conference opponent in a playoff game for the first time since Chucky was flattened by a medicine ball in the fifth grade. PICK: Hanover-Horton Grass Lake (6-3) @ Monroe St. Mary Catholic Central (8-1): Former championship boxer Bronco McCart (a Monroe native) suits up when it’s learned he still has some eligibility left. He punches the first Warrior he sees and, well, that pretty much takes care of that. PICK: Monroe Manchester (8-1) @ Clinton (9-0): These two powers locked horns in Week #1 and Clinton won big 41-19. But the Dutch want revenge, the Dutch want payback, the Dutch feel they were slighted! But…
