It's Me!!

I'm going to try and make this blog nonpolitical, the best I can. I am interested in many more things other then politics and this is where I'll include that stuff. I am going to make this blog the place to catch up on how the family and I are doing and what's on my mind other then politics. It's gonna be hard, so don't be surprised if I rant from time to time. Oh and my creations are mine, if you wanna copy them get permission. Copyright belongs to me.

Dropped Again

The game ended the way it started. On Green Bay's opening drive, the Pack turned the ball over on a fumble. On the final drive of the game, a drive that looked like the Pack had the game or at least overtime they turned it over. With 36 seconds left the football was knocked out of Favre's decrepit old man hand as were the Packer's chances of at least tying the game. I don't know what else I can do. I've picked the Packers to win, I've picked the Packers to lose this week I am just going to pick them to have a bye. This way I am guaranteed no disappointment.

I still believe in these Packers. I don't know why, it might that little bit of stupid I've got in me, but I believe. This team isn't has bad as everybody says it is. It's not worse either. I think the team is a lot better then they are showing. Hopefully they can disappoint the critics and at least win 5 games this year. Me, I am still pulling for the 11 game winning streak. Like I said I am stupid.

1/2 The Effort

Well, the Pack looked awfully good against the Eagles for 30 minutes, which is half the time they should've looked good. They actually led at halftime, which is what I didn't expect. What I did expect happened though, as they got annihilated 31-9. The final score wasn't my biggest disappointment though, nor were Favre's 2 interceptions. It was with under 2 minutes to go, the game already decided, they had 4 chances to plug it in to the endzone from 2 yards out. A yard is a mere 3 feet... 3x2=6, so they had a miserable 6 damn feet to move the football. Did they? Why would they????!!!!???? First carry gets 'em inside the 1. Stuffed 3 times from within the one yd line, which seriously, is less then 3 feet. 3 fricking feet. Less then 3 fricking feet. They couldn't do it. I think "They couldn't do it" should be the mantra for us Packer fans this season, as they won't do it, can't do it and well just couldn't do it.

My Packer prediction for next week: St. Louis' High Powered Offense: 80 vs. Green Bay's 3 Cylinder Engine: 9 Favre: 9-36, 71yds. 0 TDs 5 Ints, Sacked 13 times. Rodgers: 9-12, 8yds, 0 TDs 3 Ints. Green 19 attempts for -8yds. Morrency 6 attempts for -12yds. Leading Reciever: Favre 3 catches (all deflected that he caught and ran with) 21yds.

On a side note, 2 of my fantasy football teams performed, well, terribly. If I have another weekend of football that goes anything like this one did, maybe I'll start watching futbol instead. Go Manchester or whatever that team in England is called.

At least the Dodgers made the wildcard. They have to face-off against the Pedroless Mets, so maybe, just maybe we can hear this.... "In a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened," out of Vin Scully's mouth yet again. Although it won't be Kirk Gibson hitting the big homerun, just like it won't be Favre throwing the gamewinning TD this year.. At least Gibby's retired. In all seriousness, I am glad Favre came back, everybody's entitled to a bad game here and there.. It's just that all of Brett's have come within 2 seasons.

On a more personal note, I am sitting in my house, shirtless staring at my skinny chest wondering why God would throw somebody into this underwhelming frame. Every now and again I look at the couch cushions and want to stuff them into my shirt so it looks like I've got something that somewhat resembles a physique. Granted it'd be the same physique as Santa Claus, but right now I am stuck with the physique of Olive Oyl but not so lucky to have a tough guy like Popeye to stick up for me.
