And Then There Were Four

Hey Peeps, and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

Before I start...Happy Martin Luther King Day...I hope Hazel has the day off.

So how was your NFL Sunday? Well, mine pretty well sucked the big one - I didn't really care for three of the four teams that were playing. Start with the Colts and the Steelers - I can't stand either of them, so it was a tough call on who I really wanted to see lose. I don't know if it was sad or funny that Mike Vanderjagt missed a game tying kick - on one hand he's Canadian, so that sucks...but on the other hand he is the guy Manning called an idiot kicker (not without reason). Vanderjagt for all his talk, for all his bravado...for everything he says he is, missed the kick. He's, the look on Manning's face said it all - Peyton is going to want him gone, and what Peyton wants...

Speaking of whom, I can't stand Manning - though I don't mind James and Harrison - all the screaming, gesturing, walking up and down...all crap, all smoke and mirrors, good defences shut him down. You know, I hate when people refer to them as the triplets. They haven't done enough to earn that tag; they have not even come close to achieving what the real triplets did together...that's right, the triplets - Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmit Smith. The Colts 13-0 season went down the drain with a playoff lose to the Steelers...All the talk of the Colts, ya right.

Well, I'm not going to be a hater, out of respect for what happened to Tony Dungy and his family. So the Colts get a pass this year...but consider this the beginning of the end - this team won't be back.

I can't stand the thought of another week watching Ben "I Hand The Ball Off 40 Times A Game" Roethlisberger, Jerome "The Shakes" Bettis and Bill "Spit Shower" Cowher... couple that with watching Jake "Porn Moustache" Plummer, Mike "Mr. Ed Teeth" Shanahan, and John "The Cerebral - Yet Average White Guy Safety" Lynch - I don't know if I can stomach 3.5 hours of these clowns. I would like to see both of them could lose - hopefully they beat the snot out of each other - with the winner getting their cans handed to them in the Super Bowl.

Then Carolina...ugh. Yes, I picked them to win...but I also picked them on a few pro-line tickets to tie the Bears (a result of 3 points or less) and those dumbasses had to go and kill my tickets...4 longshot tickets that would have won about 900 bucks. I want someone to plant Steve Smith, someone to knock Delhomme into next week...and someone to put John Fox in a straight jacket - I can't stand seeing him bounce around the sidelines. Ok...enough hating about the NFL this weekend.

Next Sunday's winners....Seattle over Carolina (they WON'T win three road games in a row) and Denver over Pittsburgh. Seattle beats Denver in the Super Bowl on Feb 5.

You'll be in a bit of a push-pull situation and, the more you try to sort things out, the worse they will become. Today is best suited to fun and refusing to become too serious about anything. 5 stars

Now, if that doesn't say "Hey Hazel...go drop a message down on the yahoo site." I don't know what does...other than her horoscope saying exactly that.

So now I gotta get my can in's -35C today (damn Canadian winters), and I'm still a little grouchy about this past NFL weekend, the Leafs blowing a game to the damn Coyotes on Saturday night.

Have a great one peeps...

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world...hope your NFL weekend was better than mine.
