I Hate Football

The Giants lost a heartbreaker of a game to the Iggles down Philly way. With the playoffs in sight, suddenly Eli starts throwing INTs right and left and the wideouts start dropping every other pass.

And then today the Jets got totally crushed, eviscerated, and humiliated by Evil Little Bill, Tom the Deflator, and the Patriots (and their newest wideout, straight from an Arizona jail). It was not just a loss, it was an embarassment. The coach made the game, after being hospitalized yesterday, but the team did not show up.

I hates me some football.

Life is meaningless and full of pain.

Christmas, you say? Santa, you say? No, no, that's Nackles you hear.

Patriots Giants Superbowl 3.0
Whats your pick? Do you think the Giants go 3 - 0 if it happens?

No fair, George
Calling Tom a Deflator means to have 0 knowledge of basic science or being an absurd little piece of crap and absolutely biased like Roger Goodell.

George, you too have my sympathy, but I grew up near Chicago, and believe we will never have a winning team again unless we trade the owners -and who would take them? I worked with a lady who went to school with some of the Halas family and she told me many in the old neighborhood truly believed the McKaskeys knocked off Mugs Halas so they could get control of the team -who knows? It's as good a plot as any other...Bah Humbug to football! Plan B? Alcohol! Don't worry, no one's driving.

Reffing??
The Giants game was a complete heartbreaker. I'm crossing my fingers we'll get at least one playoff game this year. What was your thought on some of the calls the refs made? (Especially that roughing the passer and that non-call on pass interference at the end)

Re: Reffing??
The refs totally sucked in the Giants game.

Sorry George, but it was kinda nice to see the rivals not celebrating on our turf for once. One bleak highlight in a truly shitastic season :P

I imagine your Christmas just got a lot merrier with the Saints victory, which clinched a wild-card spot for the Giants despite Eli's questionable performance!

Guess the Jets lost that chance to improve their draft position huh?

No, no, the Jets draft position just keeps getting better and better.

Saints fan here, aaaand you're welcome!

Now two things for us in return:
1. Crush the Falcons if they come across your path in the playoffs
2. Foil evil Bill and his apprentice again if you both make the Superbowl.

Vikings fan here and I used to call us the Cubs of NFL. Until the Cubs won. 5-0 brought hope but there was always that hovering reality of mediocrity. *sigh* Maybe we should have built that new stadium outdoors.


Take Guy Kay's offer up on fantasy football next year, George! Motley lot of SFF authors, editors, and such who love NFL. Not many of us SFF/NFL crossovers out there. Beat GGK in the playoffs for a bottle of scotch, but lost last week to another author. Was hoping the magic of Bilal Powell would last through playoffs. Alas, no.

Actually, you SHOULD have put the new stadium outdoors. I am old enough to remember the Bud Grant days, and the looks on the faces of teams from California and Florida when they trotted on the field at old Metropolitan Stadium as the freezing wind howled around them.

The Packers have a big edge at Lambeau. The Vikes gave us theirs when they moved indoors.

At least the G-Men have a better chance of making the playoffs than the hapless Saints do...even though they beat the Bucs today, there's too much happening to go their way to even make it as a wild card. (The win also alllowee the hated Falcons to clinch their division, with the Panthers out of the playoff picture.)

That being said; the G-Men definitely got a raw deal.

Help wanted:. QB. Phil Simms looks healthy!
Ky boy here just like Phil Simms. That game wasn't quite Phil and Randall Cunningham squaring off back in the day, but at least your Giants are better than my iggles. Give my right arm for ODB but as it looks now I have some tough years ahead. Best of luck to your G-Men (even if they can't solve the enigma that is the iggles). How they seem to have the Giants number lately I will never know. Happy Holidays and best wishes!

I smile forms and condolences,
I really like the Giants. They are a Class A organization. I express great sadness for you.

I also have my Packers though, who're starting to develop a shine. I guess I'll be mixed with my emotions. However, I cannot tell you how hyped I am for my Packers and Week 17. Rodgers has beenhaving a special year.
