When In Rome - Do Like The Romos

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

Count me amongst the shocked after watching my Dallas Cowboys come back from a 14-0 first quarter deficit and score 35 straight points against what I thought was a very good Carolina defence. I wasn't convinced that starting Tony Romo was the right decision - but I'm happy to say this morning that I was dead wrong. Romo showed me, and a lot of other Cowboys fans I suspect, a lot last night in Carolina. Romo overcame what could have been a devastating INT in the first quarter (it should NOT have counted), he overcame some terrible calls from the officials, and he managed to keep everyone on the offensive side of the ball happy. The Tony Romo era has officially commenced - I'm hoping that history repeats itself, in that Drew Bledsoe's replacement goes on to win the Super Bowl (New England fans are smiling about Tom Brady).

Tony Romo didn't put up the numbers that some other players did - but winning your first start on the road, against a team many thought was a legitimate Super Bowl contender has to score points with Hazel. Romo finished the game completing 24 of 36 passes for 270 yards and 1 TD.

Larry Johnson of the Chiefs (is Hazel smiling or what?) rushed for three touchdown and caught another to lead Kansas City to a 35-28 victory over the Seahawks. Johnson rushed 39 times for 155 yards and caught 2 passes for 26.

Michael Vick of the Falcons has suddenly turned into a passer. The man we know as Ron Mexico was 20/28 for 291 yards and 3 TDs.

Yesterday was our first losing day of the week - finishing the day at -$65, but finishing the week at +129; not bad for the week.

New England -2.5 over Minnesota - Brady over Johnson on Monday night. I'd lay $50 down on the Patriots.

Anaheim over St. Louis - I can't see St. Louis winning this one, the Ducks are playing far too well to give up a game like this one. Lay $50 down on the Ducks.

Calgary over Washington - the Caps were shut out on Saturday night against the Oilers and its tough to see things getting better for them tonight in Calgary. Lay $25 down on the Flames.

There you have it peeps...have a great one!


Now is the time to flourish, not to be shy and reluctant to take what's yours. Show your worth and you will not be denied. A strong sense of fair play will put you ahead of the competition. 4 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world.

Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps - its Gavin Rossdale's birthday today, I wouldn't count myself as a fan of Bush...but the have a few good tunes.

Swallow - Bush

Peesth Out...Buh Bye!
