Sixteen Down, One To Go

  • What I'm Watching/Listening To/Reading:
    • I have a lot of History Channel cramming to do before the Israel trip. Playing tour guide is much easier after a few hours of those bible history shows.
    • During Football Night In America, Costas went on this huge rant about how much he hates when people say the phrase, "control our own destiny," since destiny, by definition, is out of one's control. Well, yeah, but isn't that one of those things where an ironic comment has become a cliche?
    • Besides, Bob, you were against the Wild Card in baseball. You're the best there is, but you have to get knocked a little for that one.
  • Random Thoughts/Links:
    • My two best games of the year so far are the Eagles-Cowboys game back at the beginning of the year and tonight's Panthers-Giants one. That was just football at its best.
    • Is anyone surprised by the Jets losing at Seattle or the Broncos losing at home to the Bills?
    • How badly did the Steelers crap the bed today?
    • The play that LaRon Landry made to keep Reggie Brown from crossing the plane on the last play of Eagles-Skins was insane. The presence of mind to make that hit in that direction.
  • Super Bowl Watch:
    • One week left and three spots up for grabs. I have six/seven teams that have a legit shot to win the Super Bowl: Giants, Panthers, Titans, Steelers, Colts, and the Ravens/Pats representative. I don't believe in Atlanta in the playoffs and the non-bye week division winners in both conferences are very flawed. Right now, I'll go with the Colts and Giants in the show, but I think the Panthers have a very, very good shot as well.
