Well GB has been on a winning streak since their bad start. They seemed to have a lot of injuries last week though while Dallas had the week off. So Dallas has every advantage as far as the schedule and home field.

Interesting. I can't actually watch since I have to be at work this morning (It's Monday morning for me) but if Dallas pulls this off, it will be an amazing comeback.

ETA: nevermind. :o

Good job for Rodgers and Green Bay.

Helluva game.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

Oh indeed. I was about to "call it" in the first half.

Hard to believe Cowboys did not get the final field goal.

Falcons to lose...Unless I own them, in which case my options are the Patriots or to abstain.

I don't think it's fair that Greenbay can just use magic like that, in front of everyone, and no one calls them out on it.

Pittsburgh to lose.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Meanwhile, the first story after the lead on page C2...

Cowboys are the Yankees. The Patriots: having good ownership; one of the best coaches ever; and a starter who is beloved by fans and respected by the peers, and who will also retire with the same team and played through several dynasties, well that makes them more like Lakers. :db:
