Teh Funniest

Not for kids or if there are kids around:

Merry Christmas you neo-yuppie scumbags!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone. New Stat’s and Standings are up and about for you all to look at. As a proud Iggles fan i’m glad to see the Birds win a meaningless December Game. Win one more game and the Iggles go 8-8 for the year and end on a nice three game winning streak. Which means things are already looking up for 2008. Donovan’s getting a little more healthy. In the last few games he’s avoided being pulled down and made some plays with his feet. And if he avoids getting injured next year (And if I manage to win the Lottery that I don’t play) we should be fine for next year.

(* Side Note* I was deep in enemy territory to watch the game on Sunday. At the in-laws, surrounded by Jets and Giants fans, otherwise they are decent people. And I heard a new name for Mcnabb – Mcslabb. Probably would have been funnier if didn’t come form boorish NY fans.)

In another non-shocker the Evil Patriots barely edged out the Dolphins to go 15-0 and the Giants wrapped up the #1 wild card (a.ka. the 4th seed for those of you who drank a little too much eggnog) making the Giants Patriots game another “who cares” is playing on the NFL network. Until the NFL network starts holding playoff games, they won’t get the public clamoring from the people demanding the Cable networks put their crappy channel on basic cable for free. All though I am going to ask Santa for the Patriots to loose in the Divisional round of the playoffs. That would be teh awesomest!

Anyway I have to run to the in-laws so Have a Merry Christmas and if you have a few extra bucks left after all the christmas shopping take the time and donate some money to a worthy charity to help out some folks who are less fortunate then you.

And no i do not have any kids yet, that’s why I’m able to type this on Christmas day. 😉

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!

College Bowl Season!!!  Is upon us where we can see such great games as the International Bowl and the  GMAC\Wheeties\.COM bowl.  Yay!!!   You can get your football fix on for everyday from now till January 1st.  32 bowl games means that 32 teams will end there season on a winning note and 32 booster clubs will be happy.  Unlike the NFL where just one team ends on a winning note.  And this year like the last 40 years will end on a sour note for Iggles fan.  For other possible fun pools would anybody be intereted in a college football bowl pool for next year.  Discuss

New standings posted

The new standings are up for those of you that wish to view them.  And man is baltimore ever bad.  How do you loose to the stinking Dolphins.  Ouch.

Hope to see some highlights like this today.

Anything to beat the hated Cowpokes.

UPDATE:  I’m sure you’ll never see B-West falling down at the one yard line on any highlight reals, but it really does show what an unselfish, team before me, player he is.

I’m so angry I could Spit!!

Cincinnati at San Francisco on the NFL network tonight. Sorry NFL network I’m just not that angry about missing this game tonight. Especially at what you want to charge me.

The NFL wants to charge $7 to $9 per household per year for the NFL Network on basic, a fee the carriers strongly resist. This price would make the NFL Network, a seasonal product for a specialized audience, one of the most expensive items in the national cable universe. ESPN, which is to cable what cheeseburgers are to McDonald’s, charges $30 to $35 per year for multiple channels with very broad appeal. CNN charges about $5 a year to the cable carriers, NBA TV about $4, and most cable channels charge far less or nothing at all. (The ones that charge nothing subsist on advertising.) Cable carriers want the NFL Network exiled to a premium sports tier so they will meet less resistance passing the price along to consumers, but that means a far smaller audience for NFLN, and hence lower ad revenues.

Your one good game of the year just isn’t worth the extra cost to get the sports package from Comcast. Man do i miss DirecTV.

UPDATE: San Fran 20 – Cincy 13. Unless you are in your fantasy football league playoffs or bet on this game , then i must ask, who cares? If you did bet on this game and you’re not from the Bay Area or Ohio I would advise you to call 1-800-Gambler right now for help. You need it!

What this is all about (or Aboot for my Canadian Friends)

Welcome to my new and improved football pool update method. I think they call it blogging or something like that. I’m trying to move up into the 21st century. This will allow you to check the standings on line anywhere or anytime. Now I just have to try to keep this updated. Hopefully this will allow me to take a little more time on the updates and give all of you a chance to respond and add your own insights to the football season. If you’re one of those people who prefer just the stats and to skip the commentary (why you would do this I have no idea) you can go directly to the links underneeth the Pages Header on the right hand side of the page and it gets you were you want to be (After clicking on that you have to click on file, a little hokey but i’m working on it). If you prefer to read my dribble then click on the posts and feel free to add your own comments (click the little linky underneeth that says either no comment or comments (#)). Remember this is my 1st go at this and I have no idea what I’m doing or what all the features of WordPress are. I expect that as I get more familiar with program and blogging, I’ll be able to update the site with more features, improve the look and the feel of the site, and generally take in any input from the people on how to run the pool better. Feel free to add your comments here. Constructive criticism and plain old ripping of me (or each other) is acceptable. Comment Away.
