  1. Ha. Seen the latest about the Rams game? No denying they're a great team, but there will always be an asterisk next to his reign.

    Really looking forrward to today's game... should see lots of scoring. I don't see how the Giants win given the extra week to prepare and the fact that the Pats won't have to put up with shitty weather. Pretty much the only thing that slowed them down on the way to 18-0.

  2. 5-1 for the Giants to win the superbowl. I'm almost tempted to stick a few quid on seeing as they came so close to beating the Pats in the regular season.

    As usual I'll be heading to the Sports Bar in Birmingham for the game itself for their big Superbowl party. Should be great. :)

    Good odds, but.... I can't help but feel that with the extra week's rest and the fact that the big game is indoors (so no bad weather to force them to run) means that the Pats are going to give the Giants a right good beating. Maybe worth sticking a fiver on for a laugh, but I think Brady and co will came out all guns blazing.

  3. If the boots fit, and they're standard step-ins, I'd bring them but leave the rest. Boards have come on in leaps and bounds the last few years: yours will seem pretty heavy and clunky by comparison.

    Boots that fit nicely are a godsend though, no matter how old.

  4. really hope your picks come good there.

    Bah. Wrong on both counts.

    Gutted for the Chargers, they put up a really good fight given the situation, but at the end of the day you gotta score touchdowns to win. Four FGs doesn't cut it. Very disappointing... they had it in their grasp. That 4th Q call from Turner was a little cowardly, but I guess he got them there and had faith in the Defense.

  5. Two great games on the cards tomorrow. Pats continue their bid for perfection against the banged up Chargers and old man favre goes up against Eli's Giants.

    Giants Chargers would be a great superbowl: the two QBs who were traded for one another a couple of years ago going head to head in the big one would be a great story. Unlikely to be, sadly. Hope the Chargers can pull of the shock result. Would be one of the biggest upsets in playoff history if they did it. Brady isn't used to getting pressured, if Merriman and Phillips can get to him early we should see some fireworks.

    Picks: Packers & (gulp) Chargers.

  6. Chargers are easily good enough to been the Titans. Just stick to the game plan. Soften then up with LT and then throw to Antonio Gates when we have to.

    The only disappointing thing is that I think we'll come undone against the Colts/Patriots because we don't have a standout Wide Receiver and Quarterback combo, there just aren't any big completions in the team.

    We got a standout TE and RB combo though. Best in the league imo. I'm more worried about Norv, especially against the Titans. Hope it doesn't come down to coaching today.

    Terrible start for the Giants. Getting rolled early.

  7. What a great start to the playoffs, wow. Refs tried really hard to give it to the steelers, but they came through in the end. That non-call on the facemask in the 4th Q was a joke.

    I'm off to the Chargers game tomorrow. Could end up closer than the books are saying, I think.

    Giants by DD tomorrow. Heart says chargers blowout, but head says the titans will keep it close. We'll see.

  8. Game of the season (decade?) today. Giants nearly beat the pats.... pats came through to be the first team ever to go 16-0 in the regular season. Amazing scenes.

    And I've been pleasantly surprised by the Bolts... got playoff tickets for next weekend, now just waiting to see if it'll be the titans or the browns. Jets fan at heart, but supporting the local team as long as I'm here. First ever playoff game next weekend, woot!

    Anyone else been watching this last couple of months? Crazy season all round, but especially from the pats.... man is Bill B pissed.

  9. this year our gang are planning on a february trip to lake tahoe or vail. Who's been? Looks fantastic out there in yankeeville, bit more money than the alps though! But the possibility of all those ski bunnies on spring break has got us excited! :( But yeah looks pricey and i am supposed to be emigrating (down under) in spring, so will be a push to make it anywhere this year. Oh poor me huh? Between a rock and a hard place!

    Both are awesome.... have you considered whistler instead though? Given that spring break is march/april, you may struggle a bit to find those college spring break bunnies in tahoe or vail in feb :P

    If you're set on the states, I would recommend Vail over CA personally. But if it were me I'd go to Canada. Immense. Jaw droppingly so. And if you're into heli, there's nowhere accessible on the planet that compares.

  10. England are pretty much the only country that regularly do that. Real shame they didn't qualify for Euro 2008.

    Americans do it at canadian flags in hockey all the time. Not seeing that reported too much over here...

  11. The good news is that Hatton appears to be fighting fit and he's kept his humour. His first comment in the post-fight interview inside the ring was: "What a fluke that was!"

    Fair play.

    FM showed his class tho: he's the reason hatton lost, nothing else.
