Godless NFL thread.

Another Sunday.  Another week of hoping the Raiders can get their shit together. Sorry for no open thread last week.  I’m traveling.  A ton. So, what’s up this week? Two weeks ago: Look, mistakes were made.  The important thing is that we stay the course. First, the good.  My player to watch was Aaron Rodgers [Read More...]

Godless college football thread.

I’m in Kansas this weekend, and Michaelyn and I will be denned up during the rain today watching football!  Which means I might actually get to participate in the open thread for once! There are two big games to watch today: #3 South Carolina vs. #8 LSU, and #13 Oklahoma vs. #15 Texas.  Let’s start [Read More...]

Open NFL thread.

Mwahahahahaha!  Is it ever boasting time on my NFL picks! Last week: My player-to-watch was Matthew Stafford, who went 33/42 with a touchdown.  I’m calling that one a win.  1-2 on my player-to-watch picks this year. And people thought I was mad to pick the Bengels to upset the Redskins.  Well who’s mad now?  2-1 [Read More...]

College football thread.

Ugh, college football.  Can we just pretend that’s not happening today and skip to tomorrow so I can boast about how all my NFL picks from last week worked out?  Can we, huh?  Pleeeeeeeease? Arkansas plays Texas A&M this week.  I hate all teams from Texas.  The last few years we’ve had A&M’s number, but [Read More...]

Godless NFL thread.

My Hogs are 1-3.  I never want to talk about football again until the subject is how quickly John L. Smith can be fired as the Razorbacks’ coach. But I will endure.  Sadly, the Raiders are 0-2 and last week all of my picks failed. Last week: My player to watch was Darren McFadden, who [Read More...]

Godless college football thread.

Ugh.  Arkansas.  The Razorbacks have some problems.  Ordinarily just about any SEC team against Rutgers would barely make it onto ESPN3 (and then, only because there was an SEC team playing).  But this game should be unfortunately close today.  However, the hogs do get QB phenom Tyler Wilson back.  That will help. Anyway, for all [Read More...]

Godless open NFL thread.

After my highly injured and incompetently coached Razorbacks got positively obliterated by Alabama, I don’t think I want to talk about football the rest of the year.  But I’m still gonna. Last Week: Last week I had Peyton Manning as the player to watch.  They were clearly easing him back in with a lot of [Read More...]

Godless college football thread.

After my beloved Razorbacks blew a 21 point lead to lowly ULM last week, I don’t even want to talk about college football – especially since this week we play #1 Alabama who looks like a freaking juggernaut. So, things to talk about this week aside from how particular games are going…can any team unseat [Read More...]

Chris Kluwe comes down on bigot politician like a ton of bricks.

A player for the Baltimore Ravens, Brendon Ayanbadejo, spoke out in favor of marriage equality.  In response, a delegate from the state of Maryland, Emmett C. Burns Jr., wrote a letter the Ravens team suggesting they muzzle their player. Boy, did that ever rub Vikings punter Chris Kluwe the wrong way.  He wrote an open [Read More...]

Godless NFL thread.

Let’s turn to the NFL after my beloved Arkansas Razorbacks got upset by lowly Louisiana-Monroe yesterday.  Ugh.  Maybe my Raiders will make some magic happen… So the NFL starts this week.  I will be on the road and unable to watch most of the action, but I still have my picks. Player to watch: Peyton [Read More...]
