No Patriots in the Playoffs

I admit that I had rooted for the New England Patriots in the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl a few times. But I was getting tired of them, winning the Super Bowl year after year. There was always this controversy surrounding the Pats, about whether they played an honest game of football.

Last season, I rooted against the Pats and they won the Super Bowl anyway. This season, I’m glad the Titans knocked the Pats out of the playoffs in the Wildcard Round. It makes me feel like the playoffs will be more enjoyable. Less bickering, and no controversial mindfucks about whether someone let the air out of the ball.

The Divisional Round is January 11 and 12. AFC will be Titans Vs Ravens and Texans Vs Chiefs. NFC will be Vikings Vs 49ers and Seahawks Vs Packers.

I’m rooting for Green Bay. The Cheeseheads are my number two team in NFL. If the Packers should fall, my next pick would be one of four teams, Titans, Ravens, Chiefs or 49ers.

I know, during the preseason, I predicted that the Lions would win the Super Bowl this season. I was wrong.

Sports

The Astros just beat Rays again. It was very close there at the end and I went a bit crazy when the Astros won it. They are my number two team after all. One more win and the Astros will have the division. Then they’ll face either the Twins or the Yankees in the ALCS.

I hate the Yankees with passion. I like the Twins only about two or three centimeters more than I hate the Yankees. Maybe it’d be more fun to have the team I hate more play my number two team in the ALCS. So, I guess I’ll pull for the Yankees in their division. Not that they need me. The odds are in their favor, same as the Astros.

In the NLDS, The Cardinals and the Braves are 1-1, so are the Nationals and the Dodgers. I don’t care much for the Cardinals, but I like the Braves. I don’t like the Nationals, but I like the Dodgers. If the Dodgers and the Braves both with their NLDSs, it’ll be tough deciding who to root for in the NLCS.

Michigan beat Iowa earlier today. Michigan State did not manage to beat Ohio State. I hate the Buckeyes more than the Yankees. In fact, I hate the Buckeyes more than I hate the Cowboys and the Indians. I don’t think there’s a team in sports that I hate more than the Ohio State Buckeyes.

So, yeah, I’m disappointed that Sparty failed to wreck what’s looking like a perfect season for the Buckeyes.

The End of the Tigers 2019

Well, the Tigers finished their season today. I didn’t see the game, I was at my mom and dad’s watching the Lions. But I checked the score when I got home and see the Tigers lost. I was hoping they could win one more.

This was a rough season and the Tigers finished in last place, so they won’t be in the playoffs. As usual, I’m a bit sad that another Tiger season has ended. I look forward to Spring Training 2020.

I’m rooting for Justin Verlander & the Astros in the playoffs. The Astros finished in first place again. They will play either Tampa Bay or Oakland in the ALDS, depending on who wins the wildcard game. The ALDS starts October 4.

‘Twas A Fine Sunday


Today we celebrated my great nephew Ezra’s first birthday. It was just a small gathering at Mom and Dad’s. I got Ezra’s a real baseball. I know he’s a bit young to play baseball, but I thought if I put a baseball in his hands early, he might come to love the game.

I had put the ball down on the table at my mom and dad’s and moved on. I guess someone handed it to Ezra, because a few minutes later they’re telling me, “He loves it, Robert. He’s smiling.”

I looked over. Anthony was holding Ezra. Ezra had the ball in one hand and he was holding it out toward me. I didn’t know he would have such a good one-hand grip on it yet. I hope he doesn’t start throwing fastballs around the house before he’s two.

Ezra unwrapped some presents, and then my dad and I watched the Lions. The Lions won and they are now one tie and two wins into the season. After the game, I went out to my hunting ground to look at my tower.

The blind on my tower was torn to pieces. So, I took the top part of the tower off. This year I’ll hunt with nothing over my head. I’ll hang camouflage netting from the rails of the tower, but that’ll be it.
