I had fun watching Alabama pound Michigan last Saturday. Can't believe the Giant's lost to the Cowboys last night.

Pats vs Titans on Sunday.  I can't watch the game live because my BIL roped us into going to the Red Sox game...I can't believe I'm dreading going to Fenway Park.  I think I'd rather watch the DNC... ;)

Thank God for Tivo!

Roll Tide!  I was at the game in Dallas and had a blast.  Cowboys stadium is an amazing place.

Terrible game plan/execution by Michigan. I never thought they would win but to get beat they way they did was pretty embarrassing. The only solace I take is that we were not much different than everyone else who plays Bama. Some recent scores:

    2011 Citrus Bowl: Alabama 49, MSU 7
    2011 Arkansas: 38-14
    2011 Florida: 38-10
    2011 Tennessee: 37-6
    2011 Auburn: 42-14
    National title game: 21-0 over LSU, LSU never crosses midfield.

We did better than LSU who was in the national title game. Alabama was legit. Both their defensive line and offensive line were NFL quality.

Oh, and my fantasy football team started with a thud last night.

My nephew just started Graduate school at Michigan...I guess I better start paying attention.

Let me guess...you have Victor Cruz on your team  ;D

Nope, Hakeem Nicks and the Giants D. Not much better. I feel better than cruz owners right now though because nicks didn't drop 3 passes. He just didn't get much of an opportunity.

Yeah, I have Sox tickets myself. That's the problem with buying the 4-packs when they go on sale - when they have seasons like this you still have September tickets and no one wants to buy them off you.

Go Pats!

First day back in the states (Texas) for a class and it is tamales, football and Real Ale Brewing Firemans #4. Ahhhhh, life is good.
Title: Re: Football Season!!!
Post by: loopy on September 09, 2012, 10:04:19 PM
I love that real ale firemans 4 too.

The Texans put a hurting on Miami today, loved that. 

I am really looking forward to tonights Denver - Pittsburg game with Peyton Manning back in the game. 

For one, I am a Manning fan, then I lived in Colorado for several years and have continued to be a Denver fan, and 3rd Pittsburg has been one of my favorite teams to watch since big Ben has been there.  I cannot remember looking forward to seeing a game this much. 

Also my favorite time of year, weather gets nice, football season, deer season, vacation days ahead, holidays .. halloween coming up, then turkey day and the rest.  Kids are back in school giving me a break during the day (I work from home).  So yeah, I love this time of year. 
Title: Re: Football Season!!!
Post by: firedog23 on September 09, 2012, 10:17:16 PM
Yeah, the Firmans 4 is a pretty solid beer.

I was happy to see the Texans turn it on today after a slow start.

Are NFL defensive linemen really that much taller than college defensive linemen?  Need to work on not looking where you're going to throw the ball, Tannehill.

It's still tough to be a Dolphan, but I think the kid showed some pretty good poise for his first game as a starting rookie quarterback. "Welcome to the NFL pal!"

Not much of a Denver fan, and certainly not a Steelers fan, but I too am looking forward to this game.  I'd love to see Manning pass for about 600 yards, and hear the collective groan rising from Indianapolis all the way out here in the middle of the Pacific!

just like the fact Tebow will never make a great QB, Luck (assuming he stays healthy) will. Time will play it out and I will come back to remind you all. :)

Hells yes.  I got off the hill a few hours before gametime.  I love night games; don't have to waste my day.

The Peyton did not disappoint.  I have not hooted that hard...um, I guess since last season.  Putting down the Rapistburger was a nice start to the season.


Phil, how the heck are you getting Bears games over there?  The wife was pissed here they aired the Jets game instead...she blamed it on the residual Tebow factor. ::)  Tomorrow night, Packers Bears already.

Half way with a very weird stat.. Denver 5-3, Indy 5-3.  Peyton 2,404 yds passing, Luck 2,404 yds passing.  Eerie huh.....

What are you talking about, football season just starting? Sporting KC just played the Houston Dynamos in the eastern conference semifinals.

At lest nobody can hang the loses on their kicker.  At least that's what Alex's Mom (my sister) keeps telling herself.  8^)

Well he didn't lose the game, but missing an extra point is pretty bad ;)

You made me go look at his stats.  He did miss a PAT.  I didn't see that.  His games are almost never on TV here in Iowa so I never see him play.

One more thing to give him a hard time about the next time I see him.   ;D
