NFL Playoffs, in a nutshell

(I'll continue to update this through the weekend).

Green Bay v Seattle
"Hey Seattle, tell ya what. Come over to our yard, we'll play a game *and* we'll spot ya fourteen."


Excellent snow, BTW.

New England v Jacksonville
We went to the Ethiopian restaurant for dinner and it was really, really good.

Oh yeah, New England won. Big surprise there.

Indianapolis v San Diego
Remember when you were a kid and you played pick-up football and all you did was throw the ball and you ended up like a bazillion for a gazillion? Remember how much fun it was?

This was that game as played by pros and it was fun, even if the final score was lower than you might expect. The winner was a (mild) surprise, too.

Dallas v. New York Giants
Back when I was a young lad and lived in Texas, I hated the Cowboys. Cowboys-Giants games were always huge events: two teams that truly disliked each other, playing hard-nosed smash-mouth football, talking trash the whole time. And that crazy Dallas stadium with the hole in the roof that let in the rain and caused terrible shadows on the field.

Today was a throwback to those days. And, the Cowboys lost! Yes!

Everyone who thinks the Super Bowl will be New England v Green Bay, raise your hand. Anyone think something different? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
