The first week of October is one of the best of the year for sports fans. Not only are college football and the NFL in full swing, but the baseball playoffs get started on Tuesday, this year on October 2.
One wonders how much work actually gets done in this week. It's probably comparable to the first week of the NCAA basketball tournament in March, when people everywhere are paying more attention to their picks in the brackets than to their workload.
Just a reminder to readers that they can catch all the playoff and World Series action at Baseball On Deck and weekly football picks on the main site, starting with updates at Snap Central
