Week Three: My Girls’ Expert High School Football Picks


Not the best of weeks for my seven and four year-old daughters last week with their expert football picks. Addie (7) went 4-4 while Rory (4) went 3-5. That moves Addie to 11-7 and Rory to 9-9 on the season.

But this week I think they really have it dialed in and their reasoning is epic and spot on, if you ask me.

Here is the full schedule with some of the broadcast links:


Black Hills Wolves vs. North Kitsap Vikings
Tumwater Stadium – 7:00 PM

Addie: Wolves – “I don’t think that the Vikings had, when Vikings were around, established good metal so I’m thinking the Wolves would run up behind them and bite their butts and that would be so ouchy that they would just go have to find a Band-Aid.
Rory: Wolves – “The can chew up the armor. They can karate kick and jump on their heads.”

Capital Cougars @ Lincoln Abes

Lincoln Bowl, Tacoma – 7:00 PM

Rory: Cougars – “They can go and jump on their heads, bite their butt and then they would run away to find an ice pack.”
Addie: Abes – “They could get a gun that shoots really hard jelly balls and cheese balls and then fire it everywhere” (editors note: ???)

North Thurston Rams @ Wilson Rams

Stadium Bowl, Tacoma – 7:00 PM

Addie: NT Rams – “They would be the only ones with the idea to take their horns and make them go sideways and catch the other Ram’s head and pick up the Rams and bring them to a metal place and then run back.”
Rory: NT Rams – “I would say the same thing.”

Olympia Bears vs. South Kitsap Wolves

Ingersoll Stadium – 7:00 PM

Rory: Bears – “The Bears can, like, jump and then throw and then put their paws on top of the Wolves and then smash them.”
Addie: Bears – “They could get in the cave and when one of the Wolves came by looking for one to attack the Bear would grab the wolf into and pull it into the cave and eat them.”

Rainier Mountaineers vs. Raymond Seagulls

Raymond High School – 7:00 PM

Addie: Seagulls – “They can fly and if they have a fish in their mouth they can drop a ton of fish on the Mountaineers and the Moutaineers would be so grossed out they’d have to go take a really long shower.”
Rory: Seagulls – “I’ll say the same.”

River Ridge Hawks vs. Franklin Pierce Cardinals

South Sound Stadium – 7:00 PM

Addie: Cardinals – “They can fly as fast as they can and when the Hawks are flying after them they can go straight toward a tree and then go up at the last second and the Hawks will be so surprised they will run right into the tree.”
Rory: Cardinals – “I’ll say the same thing. Yeah, the same thing.”

Rochester Warriors vs. Elma Eagles

Rochester High School – 7:00 PM

Addie: Eagles – “The Eagles can fly down, grab the pants, pull them down and their underwear will be showing and when they get back home to the castle, the queen or whoever they work for will say ‘OHHHH, I’M SO GROSSED OUT…YOU AREN’T WEARING ANY PANTS’ and then they will be so embarrassed that they lock themselves in their room.”
Rory: Eagles – “They can grab the Warriors shirt and pull them straight up into the air.”

Shelton Highclimbers @ Foss Falcons

Mount Tahoma Stadium, Tacoma – 7:00 PM | Radio: KMAS

Addie: Highclimbers – “If they have weapons, they can slice off the Falcons head in the air.” (editors note: GRUESOME! Sorry.)
Rory: Falcons – “When the Highclimers are up, they can swoop and grab their ears and go and fly up in the air.”

Tenino Beavers at Hoquaim Grizzlies

Olympic Stadium, Hoquiam – 7:00 PM | Radio: KXRO

Addie: Beavers – “The Beavers can go chk, chk, chk, chk, chk on the dams and when the Grizzlies are drinking there will be too much water for them and when the river overflows they will be pulled down the stream and they will bonk straight into the wood of the Beavers and will get a ton of splinters. Once they get out of the water they will have a ton of splinters on them and they will have to go home and get a bunch of birds to peck them all off.”
Rory: Beavers – “The Beavers can fall onto the dam and the Beavers can run away and when the Grizzlies get water they can step into the dam then won’t know that they put it in. And then they would get splinters.”

Timberline Blazers @ Yelm Tornadoes

Yelm High School – 7:00 PM

Addie: Tornadoes – “If the Blazers are up in a tree and the Tornado comes, the tornado will blow their pants away and if they are in a really tall tree and if they get their pants torn off by the tornado, they will get so embarrassed because people will be looking at them. When the tornado comes back they will jump into the tornado and get blown away to the ocean.”
Rory: Tornadoes – “They can swoop them up and when the ??? come they won’t know which way to go and then go down the mountain. It can swoop.”

Tumwater T-Birds vs. La Center Wildcats

La Center Stadium – 7:00 PM

Addie: T-Birds – “They can bring thunder with them and when the Wildcats are running from them, they can shoot a bolt of lightning at them and they will go RRRRROOOOOWWWWW and then run away.”
Rory: T-Birds – “I’ll say the same thing!”
