To the entire Green Bay Packers players, coaches, organization, and the city of Green Bay, thank you from the bottom of my heart for a most excellent season, and the best Packers post-season that I have been witness to in my life. I am and will always and forever be one of your greatest fans. …

Plaxico Buress Predicts the Future

When Plaxico Buress predicted a NY Giants 23-17 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, everyone scoffed; most notably Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady. “We’re only going to score 17?” was Brady’s question. Well tonight, in the 4th quarter, Buress gave Brady his answer, “No. We’re going to score 17, and you’re only …

You Gotta Be Fucking Kidding Me

First and foremost, I apologize for the harshness of the headline, but … 1 for 3 on field goals, and the Giants are going to the Super Bowl in Arizona. Bullshit. See you next fall.

2008 NFC Championship Game

At 10:04pm EST, the New York Giants called tails in the overtime coin flip. It was heads. The Green Bay Packers elected to return the ball. Hopefully the Packers will prevail. It is currently 4°F with a -23°F wind chill. I will update with a final score after overtime.

Followup: Gay Makes You a Better Football Team

Keith Olbermann put it best when he compared the uniform to a canary mating with a bluebird, but if wearing a bird-fucking-bird jersey lets your wannabe QB throw 4 TD en route to a 56-21 win, then I would still never wear that thing. I would rather my team, Green Bay Packers, lose, which they …

Gay Makes You a Better Football Team

Apparently playing professional football in really gay attire makes you a better team. The Philadelphia Eagles started this season 0-2 and had only scored one touchdown. But in Week 3 they came out of the tunnel sporting this garb, and have already scored 4 touchdowns in less that 17 minutes of play. And to make …

Tony Kornheiser: Worst Monday Night Football Host, Ever!

While I sit here watching the Eagles battle the Panthers, I am reminded of how absolutely awful Tony Kornheiser is as a football announcer. I thought Theismann was bad, but christ, Kornhieiser makes Joe look like Dan Dierdorf. Mike Tirico is the only competent one in the booth, and I guess we’re all lucky that …
