Been a crazy year both Pro and college.

I got the double whammy this weekend.

I took my brother-in-law to Iowa City, only to sit next to him in his Wisconsin Badgers shirt in a sea of Black and Gold, and then spent 5 hours on the way back home listening how crummy the Hawkeyes are.

Still suffering, the Bears (who I'm convinced had to have cheated) somehow take Aaron Rogers out, and win at Lambeau.  And who calls today, from south of the Cheddar Curtain?  Fordboy, of course, reminding me that the Bears, the Lions and the Packers are now all tied for 1st in the NFC North.

And of course, the rumors are starting to get ugly -

I'm expecting to see a horseman on a pale steed come galloping by - probably wearing a Boston Red Sox jersey . . .

 :-D :-D :-D That must have been fun. 5 hours?, I couldn't handle 5 minutes.
   Nothing wrong with a Red Sox jersey though. I'm happy  :cheers:
QBs are the key and with Aaron out they struggled. It's early days, don't fret. :cheers:
BTW, I saw some footage on JJ Watt a few weeks ago. Awesome. I've never seen a guy that big move so fast. He can tackle three guys a second. :-)

Chris, after your remarks about my true love, Nebraska football, I truly hope you are blessed with the presence of Tim Tebow! :evil:

Q: How many Packers fans does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None they are happy living in Chicago's shadow!

Q: What's the difference between the Green Bay Packers and a dollar bill?
A: You can still get four quarters out of a dollar bill.


Yea, I'll buy the first round-it was worth it! :-D

Well, yeah, I dealt some trash talk earlier - I'll own it - but I'm not so much anti Cornhuskers as I am a traditionalist.

Back when the Big Eight had eight teams and the Big Ten had ten, you'd see me pulling for Nebraska in the Orange Bowl and cheering a Sooner smackdown - because we all know that the Sooners are a criminal organization.

But now that the Big Twelve has ten teams, and the Big Ten is expanding to fourteen, (Maryland?  Rutgers? They should be playing against Yale and Navy!) I'm finding the scheduling baffling and incomprehensible.

If you can't distinguish a dozen from ten, or overshoot ten by a count of four, what does that say for the veneer of academic plausibility in college athletics?    

As to the Packers - well, we can always still pick on the Vikings.

What do the Vikings and a stolen car have in common?  NO TITLE!

So on the 29th, the Hawks take that long bus ride to Lincoln.  If they play as poorly as they did against the OTHER Big Red, I expect I'll be hearing about it . . .

 :cheers:

I think I just became an Auburn fan today . . .

And as to my aforementioned Husker Trash talk . . .

Go Hawks - and Buddy - first round's on me!

I agree Auburn called out the home run if you will.

LOTS of good games last weekend :cheers:

I'm happy because I did not watch that game.  :evil:

Not involving KU if there is a good game, well fought without knowing who will win until the last shot, I will be happy watching the game!  :cheers:

Any way it turns out... GO KU!
