Out of the Blue

Well that was certainly action-packed NFL playoff Saturday. I know a couple of time-shifters read this, so I'll mask my spoiler in stating the obvious: I had faith in Tennessee, but still thought they would prevail. And it never even occurred to me that the Packers could lose that game at home. And just like that, both number one seeds are gone? So who does that leave in the driver's seat in the NFC. Of course, Tom freakin' Brady. Wild stuff.

The masks can have some damn good quality cable-ties in the upper ridge. Not running out of those in any hurry.

Bucs basically lost due to an overly aggressive blitz call or a failure of the rushers to get to the QB on that blitz, depending on how you want to look at it.

I'm standing at three and staring at the board trying to figure out what's going on. I'd blame it on looking at Wordle before finishing a first cup of coffee, but apparently today is the Kobayashi Maru anyway. I'll let you know if I manage it.

Goddamned right! Man, now that was a great football game! My heart goes out to the Bills, I was really hoping they'd win. I really hope it ends up a Bengals v. Rams SB though.

My dad usually comes by to watch the Seahawks and we always have a Crown and Coke (or diet Coke in my case) with our food. I know, not very hard-core, but I've never been a straight whiskey guy.

Ho - Lee - Shit... the Rams and Bucs fans have probably replaced their beers with something a bit stronger - like crack. What a game. This weekend is making up for last weekend as far as excitement goes.
Both games today have been incredibly entertaining. For Rams/Bucs, you can't ask for a more exciting game than tie score with four seconds to go. And we're in the fourth quarter of Bills/Chiefs and it's a one-possession game with 8 minutes to go. So much great football this time of year. And much like last year, the playoff games are so good that the Superbowl is likely to be a letdown in comparison.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.

Too bad it wasn't a bowl game, it would have been known as the Fumble Bowl. Can't believe the Rams almost lost it after that lead.

Not often, but occasionally I have a few beers. A few years ago it was a regular thing as I joined friends at one of the local watering holes most football season Mondays for MNF. Unfortunately, that event died off even before the pandemic.

I didn't think anyone was a lock yesterday - or anyone will be today either - but I wasn't surprised the Titans lost. Wasn't really all that surprised the Packers lost either TBH. I do think they should fire Lafleur and Gutekust however. I've believed that since they drafted Jordan Love.
