NFL Divisional Round Recap: Ick!


I would like to extend my sincere apologies to fans of this weekend's losing NFL playoff teams for the inevitable jinx that took place when I gave your teams my support. (That excludes of course fans of the Dallas Cowboys. LOL at your misery!) You see, as a fan of the New Orleans Saints, a team that had a chance to win its division at 7-9 only to completely choke, it's obvious that the football gods pretty much loathe me and everything I support this season. And so, by supporting your teams in the playoffs, with the intent to smite their opponents, I pretty much destroyed your lives. My bad. Wanna know what hurts so much about that Patriots victory over the Ravens? It's that it played … [Read more...]

2015 NFL Playoff Hate-Off


When you're the fan of a team that doesn't make it to the playoffs, the NFL postseason can be a dark, cold and dismal place. You might find yourself tempted to send hate tweets to that running back who fumbled the ball on the goal line...or the quarterback who threw a pick 6 with victory within reach....or the kicker who freakin' shanked a chip shot that your grandmother could have hit. I mean, it was just 25 yards for the love of God. AAAAAHHH!!!!!! *Deep breaths* But there are other ways to channel all that negative energy that won't end in a restraining order. In order to survive a postseason without hope, why not focus your passions on hating all the teams that would make you just … [Read more...]

It’s Only Weird If It Doesn’t Work

Vinny Curry hugs ref

Eagles 27, Packers 13, Sunday, November 10, 2013 Chef Spouse and I were at the Delaware shore with Life-Long Eagles Fan Mom and You-Two-Calm-Down-Or-I'm-Turning-Off-the-TV Dad celebrating Dad's recent retirement this week. One of the things that's fun about being in Eagles Country during the football season is that there's a lot more good Eagles merch to choose from - we got bupkes here in DC. Before we headed home on Saturday, Chef Spouse had swung by a local store in Fenwick, DE that was advertised as a hardware store - and it was, you could buy tools there - but they had amazing sports merch, including lots of Eagles gear. Now here's another thing you need to know. Since I started … [Read more...]

2013 NFL Week 10 Picks

Were you watching Monday Night Football? Did you see how Aaron Rodgers got hurt, and then John McCown led the Bears to the upset win? Is it just me, or did this game suddenly get a lot more interesting? Up until about 9 pm Monday night, I was SURE the Eagles had NO chance this week. I mean, road game, so that's in their favor, but c'mon! The Packers! At Lambeau! Nick Foles will NOT have another game like last week, maybe ever. But the Packers are dealing with a boatload of injuries and are having a hard time defending the pass. I expect Foles to have another good game, and I don't have a ton of confidence in Seneca Wallace. I'd love to call an upset win, in fact, I almost did, … [Read more...]

Bears vs Packers: Welcome to Heartbreak


Hey Fellow Chicks! Usually when I blog here, I write with the same general outline for every article. I want to give you all my perspective on the game,provide relevant stats from the game, highlight key players, & take a look forward to the next game. Today, I'm not going to do that. I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do,but it won't be that. Simply put, I'm pissed. I firmly believe that in the hearts of every true Packers fan lies a deeply rooted hatred for the Chicago Bears. My hatred is intensified because I am surrounded by Bears fans everywhere I go. So anytime the two teams meet up, it's a huge deal.  Now for the last 8 years, the Bears failed to come up with a victory … [Read more...]
