Loved me some Russell Wilson. I got tuckered when Breezy was not on the comeback...did Seattle fans ever surpass the roar of Arrowhead?  Mist and rain likely hampered the results. ;D

Yeah, We barely beat it, but we did. 137.6. We also caused 5 separate seismic events between 1 and 2 on the richter scale.
What a bunch of loud mouths!

Darn Straight.

Not a Seattle fan, but it is kind of cool seeing that kind of unbridled passion from the fans.

I was able to watch the Broncos beat the Chiefs last Sunday. Manning has that ball on a string and can put in a 6" hole anywhere on the field. Amazing skills!

A loud fart registers between 1 and 2 on the Richter scale.  A 3 is barely perceptible if you are looking for it.

Apparently we are a flatulent lot here on Hawaii Island:

 stick it where the sun don't shine

is what I heard Peyton say on the radio after the game RE cold weather performances.
Southern politeness is refreshing.

WHAT? a 64 yard field goal in 7 degree weather. NFL record for M. Prater.  I love a tough kicker.

Pretty amazing Sunday of football today.
SNF  shaping up to be a good-un too.  Saints just went ahead 7 to 6, a minute into the second quarter.

Definitely some big boy match ups today.  I thought some of the hits in the niners-seahwaks game was going to shake California loose from the mainland.

What a quarter (can't really say game) for the Pats!!!  There are reports that Gronk has a torned ACL (AAARRGGHHH!!!)

Karma for the BS pass interference call in the end zone that gave the Pats the game.  They get the win today, but they don't do so well without Gronk.

Maybe they were making up for the BS quick whistle on Ninkovich's stripped ball.  I agree it was a bad call...the only less questionable part would have been the grab around the 6 yard that slowed Boyce down just enough to miss the ball.  That extra half step probably would have given him the catch.  But then it should have been on the 6 yard line, not the 1.  And since that was 2nd down, they still would have had a couple chances to get in the end zone.

But it's a win and I'll take it after losing 2 game to bulls*** calls (Jets and Carolina).

As soon as I saw the hit on Gronk, I knew he was out.  And with Dobson out, who knows what will happen.  I wouldn't be betting money on them to win the Superbowl this year, especially with their tendancy to not score in the 1st half.  Some games they are just not going to mount a comeback.  Of course until they are out, I still hold out hope!

Week 15 in Miami...  SWEET!   ;D

Monday Night Football, and I'm a Lions fan? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!
An interesting football season.

And the UCF Knights are in the Fiesta Bowl!  Yeah baby!

That is a classic no doubt.  I laughed my ass off when I saw the close up.  Excellent work by the CBS crew!

Even more classic was Brady's completion to Michael Thomas in the end zone on 4th and 5 with 7 seconds left.

Oh wait, the Patriots didn't hire Michael Thomas off of the 49ers practice squad, the Dolphins did...  Oops!
