Out of the Blue

It's hard to believe the NFL season begins tonight, especially since it's a Wednesday. For now I'm happy that the Giants are getting underway immediately, though it's going to be more than a little weird following the team's first four games, as they play tonight, 11 days from now, then four days after that, then ten days after that. This is because they are scheduled for four nationally televised games this year, 75% of which are being crammed into the first 25% of the season. Since this is part of the price of being champions, I'm going to avoid complaining about this. Anyone want to see who can pick more winners this year? I'll take the G-men tonight.

Yeah, very surprised with the game last night. The Cowboys defense looked very good and my prediction of the Giants eating up the Cowboys o-line was way off.

Yep, Dallas looked really good last night. The Giants weren't bad at all, but the Cowboys came out determined to win and didn't make any mistakes.

Sad for Blue, happy for me. Cowboy fan since 1972.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

All good here, at home and work.

Fired up GTA4, a buddy starting playing it, so I fired my PC version up to see where I am at. Story complete x2, need to finish DLC on PC, and cleaning up the game for 100%. Forgot how much damn fun this game is! Might just do another playthrouh!

2x done on xbox and 2x done on pc.
Finished DLC on xbox, need to finish on pc.
That is some serious traction for a game from me!

Anyway, despite being a lifelong Giants and Jets fan, in my old bitter age I generally can't be bothered to care about the NFl games until the last quarter of the season, when things get interesting or it's already decided that my teams are a bust. I am an even bigger Hockey fan but I didn't even bother watching my NY Rangers play last season until the middle of the first playoff round.

(P.S. A very special thank you to the L.A. Kings for denying the New Jersey Devils, the team with the most obnoxious and rude fans of any professional sports team, from winning the Stanley Cup and allowing me to rub that in the noses of Devil's fans everywhere.)

Yeah I'll take the G-Men and their healthy d-line. Although isn't their defensive backfield a little banged up? Oh well who cares, it's not that hard to cover people when the QB is running for his life all night.

Giants, Pats, Packers, 49ers are the serious contenders to take it all this year. I'm looking to the Lions and Redskins to have better seasons this year too. It'll be interesting to see what sort of form Peyton is in and what that means for the Broncos, as well as Luck and the Colts.

Should be another interesting season. I've been watching a lot of college football atm so I'm ready to rock!

GO PACKERS!

Riiight, it couldn't just be a two sun planet. No, it has to be a Tatooine planet.
Like Lucas came up with the concept. Like who dig on Space specifically people relate in Star Wars terms.

I'll take the G-men tonight.

I don't think their offensive and defensive lines are strong enough to be effective on the run, or prevent the run, against good opponents. Fortunately for them, tonight they're playing the Cowboys, who are not yet quite at that elite level.

No, since you only age when you're alive. Death is the end of the aging process.
