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. PICK: Grass Lake

Jackson @ Ann Arbor Huron: Someone once referred to Chucky as a big rat, and that definitely hurt his feelings. Ann Arbor Huron’s team nickname is the River Rats, thus he doesn’t like them. PICK: Jackson

Michigan Center @ Onsted: Former Cardinal Drew Dowding shows up on game night to deliver an exciting and motivating pre-game speech. He then floats away. Wait, what…? PICK: Michigan Center

Northwest @ Eaton Rapids: The Mounties are thinking playoffs this year and they’re excited. But not as excited as Chucky, who raided the snack bar in the off-season and made off with eight pounds of soft pretzel dough. PICK: Northwest

Springport @ Vandercook Lake: The tough-minded Spartans are fired up on the bus ride over, when they’re allowed to watch ‘Sharknado 2’ on DVD. Is there anything else to say? PICK: Springport

Western @ Lake Odessa Lakewood: The Panthers look to open the season on a high note against a team they pummeled last season. Plus, Chucky likes the word ‘pummeled’ and vows to use it more this year. PICK: Western

Pittsford @ Homer: The Trojans lose a lot of firepower from last year’s team, but they’re still formidable, but don’t go to sleep on Pittsford. Actually, that’s silly. Why WOULD you go to sleep on Pittsford? It’s a town. How can you go to sleep on an entire town? PICK: Homer

Leslie @ Dansville: The Blackhawks are shocked when road construction on US-127 reroutes them to Marquette. Sadly, they never recover. PICK: Dansville

Manchester @ Clinton: The Flying Dutchmen outfit their team bus to look like an old sailing ship, but the state police find the whole thing silly and make the team walk to the game. This is just enough to give Clinton the edge. PICK: Clinton

Hillsdale @ Jonesville: Chucky once played a sixth grade football game at Jonesville, but he was injured on the opening kickoff and knocked out for the year. That left a bitter taste in his mouth. That, and the fact he didn’t have any talent. PICK: Hillsdale

Buchanan @ Lumen Christi: Buchanan’s team name is the Bucks, and NFL Hall-of-Famer Buck Buchanan visits the locker room before the game to rally the troops. This is an incredibly difficult leap to make in a prediction and just fails miserably. PICK: Lumen Christi
