A Million Years Passes Quickly

Sisyphus is a physics guy, so maybe he was located near a black hole when he made this prediction regarding TV shows we would never see in a million years:

10. Fox NFL Post-Game ShowHighlights of all four NFC North teams winning non-conference games.

Allow me to illustrate the powerful nature of the NFC North:

Minnesota 24 NY Giants 21
Detroit 29 Arizona 21
Chicago 17 San Francisco 9
Green Bay 33 Atlanta 25

For the rest of us on earth, only six weeks have passed since October 3, when he made the post. Of course, at the time I write this I am 1-4 against the spread this weekend.

To an observer in an inertial reference frame traveling at .99999999999999963 of the speed of light relative to us, a million years has passed since I made that prediction.

However, there exists no reference frame where you did better than 2-4 in your picks this week.

To be technical, while all four opponents were outside of the NFC North, none of the games was non-Conference (i. e., NFC vs. AFC).

Therefore, Sisyphus's prediciton is still valid. Six weeks down - 999,999 years, 46 weeks to go.

Thank you Dan! But I must admit that I meant non-division.
