Super Bowl Drinking Game

Super Bowl drinking game

You know the rules. ¬†Drink every time: - Someone mentions that this is the first cold weather Super Bowl - Peyton says "Omaha" - Someone mentions that this Super Bowl is actually not taking place in New York but is being played in New Jersey (and, while you're at it, take an extra chug for yours truly, Fern Ronay a/k/a CowboysChick, who grew up five miles from Giants Stadium a/k/a MetLife Stadium) - Skittles are thrown, shown, eaten in honor of Beast Mode - Someone mentions Richard Sherman's tirade - Someone within a ten foot radius of you utters the words "I only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials." Speaking of the commercials, on the very remote, very off chance … [Read more...]

NFC East CHAMPS, Y’all!

Eagles 24, Cowboys 22, Sunday, December 29, 2013 I would rather have enjoyed a nice relaxing blowout win like the Eagles had over the Bears a week ago, but apparently, the Chipster and the boys in green thought it would be more fun to give me a heart attack. Hey, at least they won, and I will not be the first - or last - to say that I definitely didn't see 10-6 and the divisional title coming. Stud of the week: Should I go with Mychal Kendricks, who had a forced fumble AND a pick? What about Connor Barwin who batted down the 4th-and-1 conversion AND, if I recall correctly, also batted down the two point conversion pass attempt that would've tied the game? Or Brandon Boykin, with … [Read more...]

2013 Week 17 Picks

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that the NFL now has all divisional games the final week of the regular season. Rivalries, playoff spots on the line, likelihood of wackiness - it's got it all. The big news for 2013's week 17 is that two NFC divisions are "win and in" matchups, with the Bears hosting the Packers and the Cowboys hosting the Eagles. You knew one of those games would get flexed, and I'm psyched it was Eagles/Cowboys. The Eagles have had a wild ride this year: new head coach, new coaching staff, new defensive scheme, QB controversy, you name it. They shocked everyone by killing the presumptive NFC East front runner Redskins on Monday Night Football to open the season (yeah, … [Read more...]

Brandon Boykin pick-six

Eagles 54, Bears 11, Sunday, December 22, 2013 Well that was unexpected. A week after laying an egg in the Metrodome, the Eagles came out in a game that was, for them, meaningless (thanks to the Redskins who literally cannot do a single thing right this year), and utterly dismantled the Bears, who only had the NFC North title on the line. Stud of the week: man are there a lot of candidates, but I think I'm going to have to go with my boy Brandon Boykin who, after suffering a concussion last Sunday and missing most of practice this past week, came in and was his usual excellent self on special teams AND grabbed his first pick-six of the year. The points were kind of superfluous, … [Read more...]

2013 Week 16 Picks

Prime time game! (Please don't screw up, guys.) This is going to be a tough test for the Eagles. Although Jay "Picks" Cutler can be counted on to, you know, throw some picks, the Bears also have one of the best wideout duos in the NFL in Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. And, as you may recall from the previous 3 1/2 months, the Eagles secondary is not exactly lights-out. Fortunately, the Bears defense is even worse. And the Linc is no longer poison. And the Eagles had their trap game last week. And if the Eagles can win and the Cowboys lose, the NFC East crown is back where it belongs in South Philly. And (spoiler alert!) the Eagles will know that it's all up to them by 4:30 … [Read more...]
