Chucky’s Week 3 Football Picks

  • September 10, 2014

Chucky’s week #2 record of 6-3 isn’t all that bad, folks. And he celebrated by giving himself a nice bathing, complete with uncomfortable hairballs. On to week #3, and with it success… always, success… Hillsdale @ Columbia Central: JTV’s Lisa Spampinato (of ‘In the Kitchen’ fame) tries to fire up the Eagles with a delicious pre-game pasta dish but the plan backfires when CC -now duly fed – appear quite sluggish. PICK: Hillsdale Grass Lake @ Michigan Center: Rather than risk injury, these two rivals engage in a carp catching contest at Center Lake instead of playing a football game. The plan backfires when they all turn ankles getting off the bus. PICK: Grass Lake Addison @ Hanover-Horton: Two recent cougar sightings in the Hanover area have Comet fans on edge. Everyone feels a little better when it’s revealed it wasn’t a cougar after all, but rather some form of rabid lion hell-bent on destruction. Wait, that doesn’t make sense. PICK: H-H East Lansing @ Jackson: The Vikings are excited about the possibility of a post-game celebration meal cooked by J-High assistant coach Russell Davis…Frankly, that sounds delicious.  PICK: Jackson Lumen Christi @ Harper Creek: The Titans are a little…

Chucky’s Week 2 Football Picks

  • September 3, 2014

Well, an 8-5 start to the season was part of Chucky’s plan all along. His goal has always been to keep the bar nice and low, which should make it easier to jump over. On to Week #2- Columbia Central @ Leslie: Chucky and all of his cat buddies will be at this battle between two ferocious bird creatures: Eagles and Blackhawks. PICK: Columbia Central Union City @ Concord: Legendary Union City alum Al Capone visits before the game. Imagine the shock when it’s later learned Al Capone never attended Union City. And he’s been dead for a number of years. PICK: Union City Addison @ Grass Lake: Missy’s Little Grass Shack announces a prime rib dinner special is available for the winning team, and the Warriors rise to the challenge and pummel Addison. They are angered, however, when they learn the prime rib dinner is not free. PICK: Grass Lake Jackson @ Lansing Everett: Someone misplaces the usual pre-game warmup music with something from The Carpenter’s. Both teams settle in for nice, long naps. PICK: Everett Charlotte @ Lumen Christi: Charlotte announces a name change before the game. They’re switching from Orioles (which are quite adorable) to Angry Birds.…

Chucky’s Feeble Week 1 Game Picks

  • August 27, 2014

What’s new from Chucky Buckles… It’s been a good offseason for Chucky. He’s chased a few birds, nibbled a few mice and spent some quality time on top of his neighbor’s shiny, classic Mustang convertible, resulting in a series of profanity laced tirades. But the football season is back, and Chucky is excited to once again dazzle the area with his hard thought picks that most likely won’t prove accurate. Still, pick on, Chucky, pick on… Week 1 Columbia Central @ Napoleon: The Pirates, looking to get into character a bit more this year, play the game with eye patches. This messes with their depth perception, however, and the Eagles take full advantage. PICK: Columbia Central Hanover-Horton @ Concord: Chucky is certain the Comets are going to make some noise this year, so why not in week #1? Plus, the Yellow Jacket community is still excited that Concord grad Courtney Clark won the Jackson County Rose Queen pageant. Chucky is excited, too, but doesn’t see how that helps the football team. PICK: Hanover-Horton Grass Lake @ Dundee: The Beef Jerky Outlet Store is in Dundee, which really doesn’t factor into this article at all. But peppered is probably the best.…

Chucky’s District Predictions

  • March 3, 2014

Chucky Buckles, picker of events and things, spent a night in the hospital recently when he was attacked by some dubious ruffians who were angered by his lack of knowledge when it comes to correctly picking… well… anything. He has vowed to improve – so here goes for the boys’ tournament… CLASS A – Jackson v. Mason: The Vikings’ Michael Johnson hurt his wrist shooting all those free throws in the recent Lumen Christi game and wears a bowling brace on it during this district matchup. Sadly, he draws a technical foul for donning those goofy bowling shoes, as well. PICK: Jackson And then… After the Vikings beat Mason (confidence!) they get Grand Ledge in Round 2. That’s a toughie… PICK: Grand Ledge   CLASS B – Charlotte v. Western: On the way to the game, a Charlotte fan scales the Parma water tower and draws a mustache on the scary Panther logo up there. The Panthers, citing a ‘nobody messes with our water tower’ pledge, get even. PICK: Western And then… After the Panthers take round one, they draw Leslie in round two, and keep going… PICK: Western Olivet v. Northwest: Shocked and saddened by the Lady Mounties’ loss…

Chucky’s Game Picks

  • January 3, 2014

*Chuck will select a few of his favorite games each week for his picks. The holiday season is over, and with its’ end comes Chucky Buckles’ emergence from hiatus. During the break between the football and basketball seasons he took a computer class, had one of those soda-pop vending machines installed in his house and built a covered wagon from some old barn wood he found in a field. Basketball season is here, and that means Chucky is more focused on each concession stand’s popcorn making ability than the action on the court. Still, picks must be made. BOYS***   LUMEN CHRISTI @ JACKSON: Former Lions coach Jim Schwartz is on-hand to lend his services to either coach in need of in-game adjustments, but his offer to assist is rebuffed by both sides when it’s revealed that he- and the Lions – just aren’t that good. PICK: LUMEN CHRISTI HOMER @ HANOVER-HORTON: The Trojans feature many of the same kids who helped the football team reach the state semifinals in November. Trouble erupts when those same kids, perhaps forgetting its basketball season, tackle the Comets’ ball carriers the first few times up the court. PICK: HANOVER-HORTON CONCORD @ VANDERCOOK LAKE:…
