Pick it!

This game could be a really good one.  The two teams involved are clearly the toast of the NFC and the QB comparisons are very evident.  Apparently it’s only on the NFL Network in the U.S. which is making people crazy.  I’ve been feeling that pain for a couple years now with the Maple Leafs airing some of their games solely on Leafs TV.  It’s frankly bullshit but I can only see it getting worse in the near future.   Thankfully I didn’t order Leafs TV this year because I’d clearly be kicking myself with the way things are going.  In fact, I’m considering boycotting the team all together due to their long history of deficient management and play. 

 I’ll get to the point.  Tonight I think that Brett will really get up for the National audience and deliver a typical historic performance.  I’m on this feel-good story’s bandwagon big-time!  Go Pack!

Gotta Catch ’em All!

vancouver_mascots_400.jpeg

Pictured above are the 3 mascots for the 2010 Olympic games taking place in Vancouver. 

“Quatchi is a young sasquatch with a long brown beard and blue earmuffs, while Miga is a snowboarding sea-bear — part killer whale and part kermode bear.

And Sumi is a spirit animal that flies with the wings of a native thunderbird.” 

Makes sense.  I can’t help but wonder if the design of these little woodland critters was somehow influenced by either the proximity of Vancouver to Japan, or by the large amounts of good cannibus I hear is available in the area.  Either way, we’ll be seeing a lot of them in the coming years here in Canada so we’d better get used to Quatchi and the gang.

At least this is better than this random thing our neighbours to the south had for the 1996 games:

Pick my Sac – Week 10 Re-cap

Wow I’m Lazy.  Ever since I’ve turned my life around by joining the corporate world, the last thing I’ve wanted to do when I get home is look at a computer.  Combine this with palestinmiami being in Peru and this place is falling apart.  Luckily, I just used my newly minted excel skills to tally up our records in the exciting game we’ve dubbed: “Pick my Sac.”  We’ve both missed one week which hurts both our ego’s and street cred but at least we’re both retarded.  Here’s how it’s gone so far:

Week 2: Palest 9-7, Fruffy 10-6

Week 3: Palest 9-7, Fruffy 10-6

Week 4: Palest 9-7, Fruffy 10-6

Week 5: Palest 9-5, Fruffy 11-3

Week 6: Palest 9-4, Fruffy 8-5

Week 7: Palest 11-3, Fruffy 10-4

Week 8: Palest 11-2, Fuffy 12-1

Week 9: Palest 9-5, Fruffy 10-4

Week 10: Palest 0-14, Fruffy 8-6

Week 11: Palest 10-4, Fruffy 0-14

Current Records: Palest 86-58, Fruffy 89-55

It’s a pretty close battle thus far so stay tuned to see who wins what ever we bet.

Remaining Week 12 Picks: N’awlins, Tennessee, Cleveland, Jacksonville, Kansas City, NYG, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Arizona, Chicago, San Diego, New England and Pittsburgh.

Uh-oh

I forgot to put my picks up again.  I’m going to count up our respective records tonight (maybe) and am going to take the 0-16 from last week.  Hopefully that will make it a more enjoyable battle from here on out anyways. 

I know I’m a little late on the first game but I would never pick God’s team over the Pack.  Anyone who knows me knows I’m far too much of an athiest to pick that group of Bible-thumpers. 

Pack, Boys and Colts today, the rest of the week to come.

Tartan Tragedy

Yesterday Scotland played Italy in a key Euro 2008 qualifier.  All the Scots needed to do was tie and they made it in to the tournament.  Italy scored first and started to just sit back and defend like they always do.  Normally, one would just about give up on the opponent having a chance against the Italians, but Scotland was playing well and scored in the 65th minute.  The crowd was going absolutely crazy anticipating their first trip to a major tournament in ten years.  All they had to was play out the last 25 minutes for a tie, and it seemed like this was going to be the case.  Then, in the 90th minute, this happened: 

I think Italy is again becoming my most hated team as Ronaldo, Nani, and their ludicrous stepovers are cooling my disdain towards the diving/arguing masters, the Portuguese.

Greetings from Lima

So I{m taking some vacation time and I{m in Peru.  I promise this is the last that you]ll hear from me until I get back but right now I{m sitting in the Lima airport waiting on a 3 hour layover and I figured I{d hammer a little something out.  Anyway the airport is way busier at almost 2 am than any other airport Ive been to recently.  I dont have too much else to report beyond getting a new Casio calculator watch from target for the trip.  Ill put up some pictures when I get back.
