It’s Only Weird If It Doesn’t Work

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...]

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...]

Malice in Minnesota: Packers vs. Vikings

Growing up, my Grandmother always told me that if I was going to talk mess, that I had to be willing to stand behind what I said: good or bad. So at the conclusion of the 44-31 Packers victory, only one thing was on my mind…Greg Jennings must face Aaron Rodgers. So they talked...well it was more like Greg talked and Aaron listened. However, it gave me hope that a possible reconciliation was on the horizon. But holding hands and signing “Kumbaya” will in no way, shape, or form change the fact that Christian Ponder is Jennings’ new Quarterback…that is his sad reality. Luckily for Packers fans, Aaron Rodgers is our Quarterback…and boy, what a Quarterback he is! Rodgers is considered … [Read more...]

Packers vs. Browns: My Bittersweet Report

finleyap244557145449

Yesterday was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. The Bears lost against the Redskins and the Packers won against the Browns. The Packers have established a fairly balanced offense with 253 passing yards and 104 rushing yards. Top performers included rookie Running back Eddie Lacy (22 carries, 82 yards, 1 TD) and Wide Receiver Jarrett Boykin (8 receptions, 103 yards, 1 TD). The defense also did their part with multiple players making key stops. Linebacker AJ Hawk has definitely stepped up during the absence of Clay Matthews and racked up 12 tackles yesterday. Also, Linebacker Jamari Lattimore achieved a career high with 12 tackles, 9 solos and 1 sack against the Browns. Even with such great … [Read more...]
