Jack Picks The Falcons | February 5, 2017

Jack is deflated.
Jack has a perfect 5 and 0 prognostication record in picking the Superbowl. For 2017 Jack likes the backfield secondary special teams of the Falcons, plus he likes that the Falcon's quarterback has properly inflated manly balls. Jack states "The Falcons have thrown the dice and gone from 4-4-2 to 3-4-3. The team with the best defense wins, plus the Falcons know how to put points on the board." Jacks says the Falcons fly away with it.

Pamlico Jack 2017 Predicts Winter Will End | February 2, 2017

Pamlico Jack 2017 Predicts Winter Will End
Happy Pamlico Groundhog Day, a county tradition celebrated since 1840. At precisely 6:03a this morning, Pamlico Jack emerged from his burrow and examined the skies of downtown Oriental. Pamlico Jack did not see his shadow (it was dark), signifying that winter will soon end. Word is that a copycat Pennsylvania groundhog did see his shadow, signifying more winter. Pamlico Jack released this statement: "A yankee rodent is not to be trusted. I may be a dog, but I can check the calendar. No matter what a rodent sees on Feb 2 in Pennsylvania, he’s getting more winter."
