So Much For That

There are times when you watch a game that you know its over way before the final buzzer or horn sounds because of just one play---a game turner that can change things around.



The Seahawks were down 7-0 to the Bears in their NFC Divisional semi-final on Sunday with the Bears at the Seattle 3. Jay Cutler had a braincramp and tried to throw one that he shouldn't had. The ball hit Jordan Babineaux in the hands and he inexplicably dropped it. If he catches it, Babineaux may have gone 100 yards the other way. Irregardless, it would have been a momentum changing play and its one that would have translated into the football game being much different. Alas, it didn't and the Bears walked away with a convincing 35-24 win thus ending the run of the Seahawks. It was just a bad week for birds. First, it was the Oregon Ducks and then the Atlanta Falcons and then the Seahawks.



My pick of the Patriots as Super Bowl champs has come to an abrupt end. I thought the Patriots were the best chance of the four home teams to win this weekend. I guess not! Rex Ryan and the Jets stuff it right down the Patriots throat and pull off the major upset as they advance for the 2nd straight year to the AFC Championship. I don't know why, but I'm thinkin its a Packers-Jets Super Bowl. My wife is a Jets fan and my brother in law is a Packers fan. This could tear the family apart like the Hart family when Owen and Brett became enemies. OK maybe not! I guess I have to go for the Jets now----partially because a friend of mine laid some $$$ on the Jets at the start of the year to win the Super Bowl while on holidays so a win by them will actually mean some $$$$$.

I love playing NHL 11 and I love playing it online. I have a friend in Saskatoon who I play once or twice a week (I think he's been practicing). Its a blast! The only problem is trying to communicate via text on the cellphone. There should be a chat feature on the game. Oh well, you can't have everything. The other thing I love about NHL 11 is the realism. I was notified that I needed a roster update. I received it meaning I got Ales Hemsky and Nikolai Khabibulin for the Oilers, but I lose Jordan Eberle. Yes, its that up to date. Its great!!

A certain interior BC sportswriter who had his 15 minutes of fame this month was apparently too busy reading his own headlines to actually do some credible work. This sportswriter said on his blog that a certain Junior "A" website hadn't announced whether or not there were any trades in the league and that the last update had been on January 3. What a crock of crap that was. The sportswriter was politely informed of his mistake. I would like to think he might point out that mistake in a future blog posting, but I'm guessing that will not happen.

Brooklyn Decker AND Jennifer Aniston in the same movie. "Just Go For It" might be the worst piece of cinema that is out there, but if those two are in it, its a must see!!

-----
Movies I won't be going to see "Tron" and "Green Hornet". Do I need to see Yogi Bear? I think I almost have to don't I.
-----

Does anyone outside of TSN care about the Continental Cup of Curling? Did anyone outside of TSN talk about it?

Have an entertaining Monday!

Mitch, I saw Yogi Bear, and yes you do have to go and see it... After all "You are smarter than your average bear"

Agree with you on Babineaux Mitch, but I can't agree with Cory. Yogi was not one of those movies that you want to see. You do want to see the Sandler movie though just for Brooklyn Decker. She is one or two levels beyond spectacular.

Sorry Mitch, SJHL has to share in the blame with respect with the Transactions issue. At first, I asked where are all the trades as Suspensions are listed first. I had to scroll down to find trades. My opinion, have a separate tab for trades and suspensions. It is easier for the fans to be informed.

Don't know about you Mitch, but what is it with the NFL recievers during the playoffs? For a league that has the best players in the world they sure have had the case of the dropsies latley.

Irregardless? Try using a word that actually exists.

Don, I noticed the same thing this weekend. A lot of dropped footballs. Weather conditions weren't the best, but receivers have to catch some of those balls. The same for defensive backs like that one from Seattle too right Mitch.

hi Scuffy
while I normally agree with you on most things I actually watched the Continental Cup on TSN. Enjoyed it so much and once again I didn't have to watch a boring NFL game. And as a Rider share holder you can bet that I love football.
