Aaron Rodgers and the Killer Bees

NFL Divisional Playoffs

I wanted to predict both games' results correctly yesterday, but those rascally Green Bay Packers led by future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers ruined my plans. I feel nothing but pride for my Dallas Cowboys with our new QB Dak Prescott and incredible running back Ezekiel Elliott. Next year, 'Boys, next year. We will finish the fight. I was right about Pittsburgh winning last night. Those Killer Bees were just too much to handle: Big Ben, Antonio Brown, LeVeon Bell, and Chris Boswell. The kicker. Made all of the points last night. Touch down fail. ESPN writer Jeremy Fowler stated that "the Steelers were practically allergic to scoring touchdowns" in Sunday's game. Sigh. This brings me to my next point.

First Take on ESPN

I really do not want to listen to Stephen A. Smith's joy and happiness about Aaron Rodgers, the Dallas Cowboys, the Pittsburgh Steelers, or anything else for that matter; however, I will take my medicine. Yergh.

Divisional Playoffs

I was not too busted up to see the Seahawks sent home packing by the Atlanta Falcons when I checked the final score of the game. I expected the Patriots to win last night's game, too. The Houston Texans must solve the QB riddle of Brock Osweiler and Tom Savage or the next great thing. I doubt they would get anywhere near Clemon's Deshaun Watson who is heading into the draft in a few months. Just forget about it!

Sunday's Picks

Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys - feed Zeke!
Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs

Happy New Year! - 2017 Edition

Good morning and happy new year to one and all, sports fans! Well, we have a rematch in the college football championship with the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers. I was right on three out of four bowl games yesterday.

  1. LSU vs. Louisville
  2. Alabama vs. Washington
  3. Kentucky vs. Georgia Tech
  4. Ohio State University vs. Clemson

If I have my act together, I'll post my predictions for Monday's bowl games. Would you believe I have to work tomorrow and must keep up with updates for the early game via my ESPN app? It's all good.


Today is the last regular season day for the NFL. It's been a while since I made my picks public. Here they are.

  1. Baltimore at Cincinnati
  2. Houston at Tennessee
  3. Carolina at Tampa Bay
  4. Jacksonville at Indianapolis
  5. New England at Miami - I did not even think about this pick.
  6. Chicago at Minnesota
  7. Buffalo at NY Jets - No more Ryans? Perhaps, Todd Bowles will have a good day after all.
  8. Dallas at Philadelphia - I sincerely hope that Tony Romo does not take a snap during this game. It is meaningless, pointless, and dangerous. 'Nuff said. A Yellow Flag of Shame if he gets out there. An entire blanket if he gets hurt if they foolishly place him in harm's way with an Eagle defense that has nothing to lose.
  9. Cleveland at Pittsburgh - I am glad the Browns won last week. This week would not be theirs.
  10. New Orleans at Atlanta
  11. NY Giants at Washington
  12. Arizona at LA Rams - Cardinals salvage some pride and whip up on the Fisher-less Rams.
  13. Oakland at Denver
  14. Kansas City at San Diego - why did Peck's Bad Boy NEVER have the personnel needed? I love Philip Rivers, but it's another no-go season. Sigh.
  15. Seattle at San Francisco - I will NEVER pick the 49ers or any other team with Colin K. on it.
  16. Green Bay at Detroit - The Pack is back.

Time Ran Out

Time ran out for my beloved Aggies last night in the game against Kansas State. Next year, Aggies! We'll gig 'em next year!

Dallas' Dak Prescott earns my MVP vote for such an exciting year. I am pulling for this young man to take us as far as his O-line and defensive compadres will let us go. Tony Romo has been a good guy in the face of losing his starting position. Jerry Jones needs to keep his mouth closed when the microphones get close enough to bite.

On a programming note, I could not find my Blogger icon when I got ready to write this morning, so I'll have to figure things out to stay in the loop and let you know what I think about various sporting ventures in the future.

NCAA Football Wrap Up (Say What?)

I dozed off around 8:00 last night with my Aggies leading Ole Miss. Imagine my surprise when my husband burst into our room to inform me the final score of 29-28 was NOT in our favor. ARGH!!!! I was not the only one to suffer; however, Michigan, Clemson, and Washington also suffered losses. Auburn was beaten by Georgia. Will Auburn lick its wounds to give Alabama some type of challenge in the highly anticipated Iron Bowl? I hold out no hope for that to happen but will tune in anyway. On to the pros.

NFL Sunday

  1. Green Bay at Tennessee
  2. Minnesota at Washington
  3. Chicago at Tampa Bay
  4. Kansas City at Carolina
  5. Atlanta at Philadelphia
  6. Los Angeles at NY Jets
  7. Denver at New Orleans
  8. Houston at Jacksonville
  9. Miami at San Diego
  10. Dallas at Pittsburgh
  11. San Francisco at Arizona
  12. Seattle at New England

First Saturday of November

A hearty round of congratulations to the Chicago Cubs, winners of the World Series. They are probably still dancing in the streets somewhere in ChiTown. Enjoy.

High School Football

I am so proud of my Plano East Panthers winning against Plano Senior High last night, 22-20. Once again, we are the city champs! East! East! East! Mama's Lincoln High Tigers were victorious with a 56-14 score against Canton. Daddy's Manual Arts Toilers did not fare so well against Hawkins. Ouch.

NCAA Football

After several weeks on hiatus writing about my college picks, I plan to end the season on a strong note. Some games will not be worth making a prediction; however, others hold the Lady's interest.

  1. TCU at Baylor
  2. Florida at Arkansas
  3. Georgia Tech at UNC
  4. Nebraska at Ohio State
  5. Oklahoma State at Kansas State
  6. Texas at Texas Tech
  7. Navy at Notre Dame
  8. Michigan State at Illinois
  9. Air Force at Army
  10. Georgia at Kentucky
  11. Alabama at LSU 
  12. Texas A&M at Mississippi State

Aggies are Number Four!

WHOOP!!!! I was thrilled to see the ranking from the College Football Playoff committee that put my beloved Aggies at number four. And another WHOOP!!!

On a different, much lower level, I am with Stephen A. Smith on Trent Williams' suspension for four games. STAY OFF THE WEED (OR WHATEVER SUBSTANCE IT IS)!!!! Your life and brain cells are much more valuable unaltered. A giant Yellow Flag of Shame thrown to this individual. Please, son, get yourself straightened out before you become a byword for young players watching your example. Please.

And to end, Jay Cutler actually won a game? Watch out for those flying pigs overhead. They aren't too selective about where they land.
