The message came inside an old poster tube, emblazoned in Spanish text. It had been two weeks since any word had been heard from Ida, a wait that grew more arduous by the day, as news piled up about football fortunes won and lost, injuries shirked or overcome, and terrible defeats that ended postseason dreams.

Inside the tube was what looked like a movie poster, covered in Cyrillic text, and inside of that, another poster with large, inky cartoons of two figures staring at each other. “Vencinos” it said in large text. “Documental Cubano.”

Scrawled in the bold, random text on the poster were Week 17’s picks, the ink smeared and unreadable.

“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us,” said the great scholar Joseph Campbell. Here are Ida’s playoff picks:

Seahawks (2.5) over Falcons

“You know me.”

Texans (9) over Patriots

“It’s all in the spread.”

49ers (-3) over Packers

“I’ll go for them.”

Ravens (8.5) over Broncos

“Michael Oher.”

Wildcard playoff round picks

Texans (−5) over Bengals

Packers (−8) over Vikings

Colts (6.5) over Ravens

Seahawks (−2) over Redskins

Regular Season record (not including week 17):

110–122–7, Kryptonite 6–10.

Playoff record 3–1.
