Big news from the NFL

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

Football fans across the continent are no doubt discussing the big news that came from the NFL yesterday - Carolina Panthers QB Vinny Testaverde announced that he will be retiring after today's game in Tampa Bay. Testaverde's announcement took all the attention away from Tom Brady and the New England Patriots who completed a perfect regular season with a win over the New York Giants - lost in Testaverde's announcement was the fact that both Tom Brady and Randy Moss had record setting nights. Brady threw his 50th TD pass - good enough to pass Peyton Manning, and Randy Moss caught his 23rd TD of the season - eclipsing Jerry Rice's single season record. Nice to see those two names erased from the books.

We are in shock over Testaverde's announcement - so much so that we can't even begin to think about hockey.

Washington Capitals RW Alex Ovechkin had four goals in an 8-6 win over the Tards - you know we like to heap love on anyone who pounds the Tards. Didn't we tell you Washington would win? Speaking of heaping love on anyone who pounds the Tards...

Washington Capitals LW Donald Brashear destroyed the Tards wanna be tough guy Chris Neil - pounding him with close to 25 shots to the melon before Neil dragged him to the ice. You know how we feel about Neil here - he loves fighting little guys, so it was great to see him get dusted by a heavyweight. Typical "re-Tards" fans applauded Neil for dragging Brashear to the ice - ignoring the fact he was annihilated.

Calgary Flames RW Jarome Iginla and LW Christians Huselius both had two goals and an assist in a 5-3 win over the Ducks - both are on the Maeple Leafs roster in the Fantasy Hockey Pool.

Another decent night going 2-1 and adding $90 to the bank roll for the week - the total stands at + $390; we told you we were on the road back to respectability. Today's suggestions in a crazy week 17

Seattle -1 over Atlanta - we've maintain that the Seahawks are road wimps, and we believe it - but Holmgren says he's playing his starters...they won't lose to the woeful Falcons. Lay $100 on the Seahawks.

Cincinnati -2.5 over Miami - see yesterday's reason. Palmer won't lose to the 1-14 Dolphins. Lay $150 on the Bengals.

Tampa Bay +2.5 over Carolina - Vinny goes out with a loss where it all started for him. Lay $100 on the Bucs plus the points.

Denver +3 over Minnesota - can't see the Vikes winning big here - Shanahan, the miserable curmudgeon, will have his gang up to play spoilers today. Think about it...would you trust Tarvaris Jackson? In a big game with playoff implications? Well, we wouldn't.

Arizona -6 over St. Louis - an ugly game, but you look for value - Arizona will want to end a disappointing season on a high note...they will today. Lay $100 on the Cards.

We'll be back later with a few more picks - thanks for taking the time to check in.

Hazel, we hope things are groovy in your world.

We're Out!
