Prep picks: I need to shut up

The reason Chad Johnson, or Ocho Cinco as he call himself, can talk so much trash is that he can back it up on the field. I talked trash in these picks and didn’t even come close backing it up, finishing an embarrassing 6-7, while Eric went 8-5. So no trash talking this week, at least to Eric..

We stayed in house this week for our guest picker, having former sports writer Scott Fontaine do the picking. Ol’ Fontaine, as we call him, is New Orleans boy that is so loyal to the Big Easy that he selected his fantasy football players largely on the basis of whether they played for the Saints, played for the Saints at one time, or played for LSU. Naturally, his team is 0-2 on the season.

After a year, covering prep games and working the desk, Fontaine is moving over to the news side (Benedict Arnold) to be a “mobile journalist.” What that means we have no idea, other than he’s out wandering around the South Sound and talking to random people.

For some reason, Fontaine loves Bellarmine Prep. Nobody’s sure why other than that he attended a similar school in New Orleans.
