    Default Football.. End of the 2012 Season

    Many of you would not think I am a huge sports fan as I never mention it.

    There is some truth to that as I have moved so much that for me to stay up to date on my favorite teams would have been too expensive. The women in my life were so dependent on cable TV that I already spend over $200 a month on it. (That is cable tv, phone and internet). Imagine what it would cost to add sports packages like baseball and football!

    Compound that with the fact that Seattle really has not been that good at sports. The teams are easy to forget when I am working on an assignment in Timbucktoo. Add to that I hate television for it's forcing pop culture and commercials down my throat. I have been happy to get most of my news and other information at my own pace, without commercials since the world wide web has grown into what it is today.

    Well, the Seattle Seahawks are in the playoffs this season. No big deal, so are a bunch of other teams. However, today some major decisions are going to be made. San Francisco is number on in the NFC West and Seattle is number 2. Seattle has a good enough record to play in the wildcard slot before today's game. But if San Francisco loses and Seattle wins today, San Francisco will be the wildcard and Seattle will be the division winner, a much better spot to be. The division leader gets a week off and home team advantage on the first playoff game. The competition is so tight at this level any advantage you get is life or death. So what that means is your's truly will be watching televison today. Possibly two games

    I do pledge to you that I will not turn into a fair weather fan today. I will not be painting my face and running through the city with my shirt off. Seattle has played very well the past three games, and the media is referring to them as the hottest team in football. The media is very fickle and I do not buy into all of that. I am excited about us winning though. It makes the boring winter a little more tolerable. I think the thing that would really make the winter in Seattle more tolerable would be a week in Kona.

    Cheering for the Dolphins is very much like a week in a Coma.
    Life's different here ... It's a whole 'nother pace.

    The Dolphins have had some exciting seasons and good players and staff. Morino is one of the panel of announcers of this NFL I watched today and the leader of the panel called him Handsome Dan. Oh, and Dan Morino was in the landslide hit movie Pet Detective.

    We'll trade the whole Jaguars payroll for one of those Nica American Football teams.

    That sounds okay to me, but hopefully it isn't Canadian beer (just kidding)...

    I remember a few years back you go to this one bar and get wings for a dime. I remember some big nasty piles of bones by the end of the game.


    Seattle advanced BTW. It started off kind of bad (14-0) but they still won in the end.

    Seahawks played the worst game they played in half the season. They didn't deserve to win.

    I put 40 bucks on 'em to win the whole shebang. My buddy went to Vegas and I got in at 35 to 1 odds. This was before they got Flynn and I had no idea who this Wilson fella was. What a roller-coaster ride this season was.

    Skol is the fight song of the Minnesota Vikings. The guys writes in Nica lives in Oregon and likes the Vikings



    Looks like San Francisco gets to advance today. They already won the whirled serious two times in a row, now this. Once Barry Bonds leaves town good things start to happen.
