Week 14 NFL - Live Bloggin' It... why not?

The Texans play on Monday and I'll probably be spending the day waiting to be disappointed by polls consisting of ballots cast by non-football experts, how 'bout a little live blogging (we'll see how long this lasts).

~8:30-11:00: I've spent the morning avoiding NFL talk and trying to find shows on TV talking college football. It seems most TV guys like Texas. I'm not sure if that pisses me off more or not. TBD.



11:00AM: Eh... no more college football talk. Time to hit up the TiVo for entertainment. Survivor time.

11:01AM: WTF! recap show!? Recap shows blow, even if they do show some extra footage. Whatever. Thanks for nothing CBS.

12:02PM: My disinterest in the Survivor recap has led to a lot of pausing and leaving the room. It's still on as the games are kicking off. Bleep it... I'm finishing this crappy recap show. Good thing I have 4 TVs in the living room right now.

12:07PM: Oh yeah... I forgot to mention the Plax story. Can someone explain to me why sports stars think they need to bring a gun to a club? Too bad the bullet didn't hit anything fun. Speaking of missing some news. I was surfing around last night and noticed that the terrorist attacks in India was not on CNN's list of top stories. Nice one Ted Turner.

12:17PM: The AP moved Texas ahead of OU... for whatever that is worth.

12:18PM: The Coaches' poll moved Texas...... ahead of Florida. OU is still #2. What a worthless poll.
http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/rankings?pollId=2

12:35PM: First adult beverage.

12:42PM: Just scanned to see which NFL games I feel are very important today.

Noon Game - Carolina/Green Bay: Go Cheese!
Afternoon Game - Atlanta/San Diego: West Side!

I love you Cain, but there is a wall.

12:48PM: Just peeked at the Green Bay score... (best Jack Bauer voice) Damnit!

2:12PM: I had to do some cleaning and rearranging to prepare for a xmas tree... let's see what I missed. The Giants are for real. Indy/Cleveland 3-6?? The Packers just tied it up. You know who else is for real? The Titans... or does anybody outside of Nashville really believe in the Titans. I'm not sure I do, but I can tell you why they are so successful: Vince Young. He's got healing power. He's magic. He's Superman. Laughing yet? Seriously, he's like Superman. He makes great things happen and then just sits back as Clark Kent going: "golly gee Lois." Vince on the sideline alone may win the Titans a championship. Stop laughing. I ain't kidding.

2:59PM: Boring Indy game over. I love bonus coverage.

3:10PM: Giants game over. More bonus coverage.

3:13PM: Bleep bleep it Green Bay! You know what? Beat it cheese! You want great cheese folks. How about some Maytag. That's made in Iowa. Want a cheddar flavorgasm? Try Tillamook. They make that in Oregon and it one of the best cheddars you can put in your mouth. Beat it Green Bay... you cost me the lead... and there is that cheese thing.

3:15PM: 3rd beer.

3:24PM: Human polls are out. It looks like it'll be the Coaches poll (ou #2?!) that may screw the horns. More beer.

3:35PM: BCS poll out. Fuck.

3:45PM: Nope... horns got fucked by computers.

3:58PM: I'm a little better now... here is the updated card.



4:00PM: I want to watch Atlanta/San Diego... CBS says I get to watch Pittsburgh/New England. Compromise: Top Chef.

Although, Matt Cassel's QBing (word?) is impressive. But off to a small TV with closed captioning on with you Matt.

4:09PM: Quickfire challenge... surprise mid-challenge curve ball... soup! Yeah, Top Chef is bringing me back after a bummer of an afternoon. 5th beer anyway.

5:11PM: Quick peak at all the scores... wow... all games are close... I wish I had DirectTV.

6:43PM: Bleep bleep it left coast! You know what? Beat it California! And by the way, your food sucks. All your froo froo cake boy ingredients and small portions. It's not cool. It's just not good. And thanks for charging me twice as much for half as good and four times the suck. Beat it Chargers. ... you cost me another point from the lead... and there is that crappy food thing.

6th beer.

6:52PM: Updated card.



10:41PM: An It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Amazing Race, and The Shield later... here's the final update of the day.

P-F21: Week 10 NFL Bonus - Baseball is over, now what?

Losing baseball season isn’t like losing football, but it can still be a difficult event for some. While we are deprived of baseball season’s physical presence, we can still reconcile -- you know what, we’ll figure it out. Below are some ways you are honoring the memory or just moving right along. Sleep Astros! (AP): “Go to sleep on time during the week!” (3)  -- apparently you aren’t into MACtion Beelzebubbles (CC): “Now I can get some decent sleep during the work week” (3) More time for football 18 National Championships (CG): “Plenty of football and golf” (2) Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK): “MACtion!” (4) -- yes!

P-F21: Week 7 NFL Bonus: Best news of the year!

It’s a mad world. Let’s parse out some good. Everyone gets POSITIVE bonus scores! (One thing though. I forgot to add “in the NFL” to my bonus question, but maybe you guys behaved yourselves) A Northmen (AN): “Brittney's dad will no longer be her conservator! #freebritney” She went on with a bunch of crap about TSwift, but I’ll spare you. On Brit, of course, she should have the right the fk up her life. That’s great news! +4 T-Horns (AM): “Matt Jones developing earlier than expected.” Wait, are we talking about Mac Jones? +2? Astros! (AP): “OU/Texas coming to the SEC!” This is great news. See what happened is Texas got in OU’s head, then Texas “Trojan Horsed” their themselves in the SEC, where Texas will then ruin the SEC from the inside. +3 Buddy the Chimp (BC): “Bananas.” Buddy, you get bananas all the time. Dream bigger. +3 Cornholio's Bunghole (BO): “Just destroying America is not enough for Joe Biden, so he destroyed Afghanistan. I wonder what country will be ne

1 I once watched this planetarium show on dark matter. I’m familiar with matter. I’m not saying current or future me could define it, but it is like -- stuff. However dark matter isn’t the dark stuff. Dark matter is like all the other stuff that we aren’t familiar with, and on top of that, apparently the universe contains an unknown amount of matter that we cannot observe! 2 Speaking of matter, small wins matter. Not only do small wins add up to major accomplishments, but small wins have also been shown to give enormous emotional boosts. (I think you see where I am going with this.) 3 Enough said.
