Games We Play
Go Steelers! Oh, wait, never mind. : (
Anyone see the news on Crawford? Atta boy, Theo!
is that pic from the Bob James album "Touchdown"?
wait, it's not. just has a similar look...
2) No, but that was my first thought. LOL.
Pats D looking good early.
 the link made me think that was about wakefield. weird.
A little back and forth. We got a game so far.
Pats by 3 at the half. Pretty good game so far.
Ravens 20-16, third quarter winding down. I still down bet against Brady at home here...
C'mon, Brady. Do you your thing. That way you can lose in the Super Bowl.
Gronkowski is a huge loss. I think the Pats just became underdogs.
Fourth and goal. Go for it, Belicheat.
That's the Flacco I know and love.
Heck of a game.
And now, exchange of interceptions. Wow.
Amazing, the Ravens can just run at will, and they try that silly little draw. Must go for it on 4th and 6, of course...
Flacco looked good for much of the game, huh? Simms was even giving him props.
Sweet. A couple more first downs from the semi-lesser of two evils and baltimore can slither back home.
Eat it, B'more. Laces out, Dan!
Oh, bless his heart, he must be the sickest man in America.
 God, what a feeling.
I mean, he choked. I never say that. But there's no other way to describe it.
 Yup. Almost as bad as Wide Right for Buffalo.
 scott norwood!
Yeah, Scott Norwood.
In these parts we occasionally get to hear the radio call of the Patriots' first Superbowl victory. As the Patriots line up to snap the ball, Gil Santos asks, "It it Adam Vinatieri or Scott Norwood?"
 RI - it's good to see ya, man! how are ya?
Nice touchdown. Way to get the 15 yard penalty. Dumb ass!
25) I mean, really. So stupid.
Giants so tough right now.
 Hey yo! Doin' good. Pretty good.
A little down because two of my kids are back at college now, but, in general good.
crap. 9ers touch down.
Oooooffff. That collision over the middle was horrendous.
Now here comes Eli with 1:38 left set to do something special.
Both defensive teams are impressive, man.
9ners fumble. This one looks about over, folks.
Impressive. The Gints are for real. But I'll say this, I will be surprised if Brady loses to them again.
shut your mouth!!
I just hope the game is as exciting as the two that were played today and I'm relieved that I can kick back and enjoy it without sweating it out!
Eli is the best player in NY/NJ
 Brady doesn't play D. Bank on a Giants victory. It won't be as close as last time.
 I've been an Eli booster from day 1, and I kind of like that even when he has a great day and makes a huge play, he still looks like he's not sure where he is or what the score is.
 No, but the coach up there has been known to have a loose interpretation of the rules. Never mind, I think the Giants are going to pull this off.
win or lose still very impressive for a 9-7 team
