Well, it's taken all season, but our beloved Bonzo the Idiot Monkey has finally fallen on hard times as a top-notch handicapper.
Bonzo went 6-10 last week -- his second straight below .500. The poor guy was moping around his cage all week. He went 1-1 on the Thursday/Saturday games, leaving him at 117-91 on the season against the spread.
And yes, that puts him, for the very first time, behind the leading "experts" at CBSSports.com
. Pete Prisco is 118-90 against the spread including the two early Week 15 games, a game ahead of the Bonzonator.
Prisco, who has been belittled countless times by Bonzo's heartless masters, now goes head to head with a monkey for bragging rights. His race with Bonzo for supremacy will be the greatest of all time, even better than that time Chad Johnson raced a horse.
Bonzo was not available for any type of comment, and it took every trick in our simian-influencing book just to get him to make his picks at all.
Good luck, our hairy friend, and Godspeed.
