Sunday Summary

We never got any real snow today. Just a few little flakes.

There's only 5 more sleeps until my vacation!! Woooooooooooooo!! I'm not really going anywhere. I just needed time off. And my town is a pretty good place to be.



Pam is celebrating with her Seahawks. They trounced Arizona to win the NFC West. I still don't think Seattle is a very good team. But they'll be in the playoffs, which is a hell of a lot better than any of my teams have done. Of course the bonus is that I get to watch Pam do her victory dance. Now that's entertainment.

Pittsburgh put up very little resistance against New England today. The next two weeks are CAKE for the Patriots. They host the Jets and then the Dolphins. On paper neither of those teams has a chance to beat NE. The Patriots travel to New Jersey to take on the Giants for the last game. That should be interesting, because the only thing left to be decided may be whether NE finishes 16-0. So the question becomes, is going unbeaten more important than making sure none of your key players suffers a freak injury? For the Giants, if they have secured a playoff spot, will the emphasis be on staying healthy or on spoiling the perfect regular season for NE?

Picks are going well for me today. I got 12 winners, and I have a good chance to go 13-3 or 14-2, my best result of the season. Even if I don't get the last 2 games, I'll take 12-4.

These teams have clinced their respective division titles: New England, AFC East; Dallas, NFC East; Green Bay, NFC North; Seattle, NFC West. I won't get into the different permutations of what needs to happen to settle the other division races or the wild cards. It's going to change after tonight's game between Indy and Baltimore anyway.

OK gang. We're off to listen to Turnbaby Talks. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    It's been a very rainy weekend here - rained Friday night when my daughter and I managed to get out to see "It's a Wonderful Life" done on stage at the local theater in Philipsburg, then yesterday, it was pouring when we had to leave to go to the dinner and pagaent at church for our annual St. Lucia Day Festival of Light celebration. This morning, it's still wet and hovering right around freezing so the reports are potential for icy spots on the highways this a.m. Wonderful! I'm being my normal sarcastic this morning as I hate cold winter rains and the ice storm potentials that lurk around every bend it seems.

    Ann: Funny!

    CWM: It wasn't much of a snow.

    Jeni: I'm not wild about ice either. It's up to 37 degrees at 6:30am...hopefully there's not ice to worry about.

  1. You do, indeed, live in a great town, and that's a wonderful photo of the skyline. I need a trip up there soon.

    My Colts looked stupendous last night, even without Marvin Harrison. Sorgi got some valuable playing time.

    Songbird: Granted the Ravens were missing two All Pro corners last night, but Indy took that defense apart. And Indy's defense was terrific.
