Jingle All the Way With the NBA

As a fan of special event commercials … that I have to search for because most of them are not shown in Canada by our cable providers … thanks for this. It’s really well done. Our Thanksgiving was over month ago though … Keep up America! 🙂

Marques Says

It may not even be Thanksgiving yet, but the NBA is gearing up to spread some holiday cheer with the release of their Adidas Christmas Day uniforms.

It seems as though Santa has something up his sleeves (literally) for the Bulls and the other 10 teams who are playing in the Christmas Day hoop-a-palooza special. The jerseys are a combination of a jersey shore style v-neck and those dry fit tees you get in your half marathon goodie-bag. The Adidas “BIG Logo” uniforms haven’t been a very big hit, but I have to say I enjoy the large bull logo. I also feel like DRose has really embraced his modeling career after the GQ spread a few years back.

On the other hand, the Jingle Hoops commercial is the best part of the campaign. Last year’s “Carol of the Balls” dribbling chorus was pretty great, but rounding up Rose…

How to be a genius NFL game picker & Week 6 Thursday Night Game

Realize that there’s no such thing — there are only moments of brilliance that appear to be genius.  Like me picking The New York Jets over Atlanta in Week 5’s Monday Night Football game.  Genius.  Cleveland over Buffalo — got that one but just cause I don’t like to pick BuffaloIndy over Seattle — that one was pretty good too.

Last week I went 8-6 — totals 45-32

Bringing us to tonight’s matchup — and I use that term loosely.  The New York Giants at Chicago.  I’ve taken the Giants a few times this season and they did me … and an entire State … wrong.  If I had a reason to take them I would … but I don’t and I will be catching up on Grey’s Anatomy if they freaking play like they’ve been playing so far.

NFL … Is this Week 5?

It’s Week 5 here.

There was some upsets last week – they upset me – we’re not going to discuss them.

Going in Week 5 @ 37-26 (Mommy’s not happy with this)

Anytime spreads are 3 and under it basically means that the “experts” don’t have a clue who’s going to win – This weeks there’s 6 games in that range including a PK – might as well toss up a coin.

That being said:

New England over Cinci – it’s like a tradition.  New England isn’t immune to getting their clock cleaned but neither is Cinci liable to beat them.

Detroit over Green Bay – yes – it’s in Green Bay but I’m taking them anyway.

Indy over Seattle – Seattle and Russell Wilson are pretty hot right now just winning their 4th in a row to start a season, something that hasn’t been achieved in 400 years or something like that.  They’ve beat some crap teams to do so.

Miami over Baltimore – Miami at home.

New Orleans over Chicago – Chicago does have a good defensive line but New Orleans’ is better.

New York Giants over Philly – Between these 2 teams and the 8 games they’ve played between them – there’s been 1 win and that went to Philly.  The Giants can have this one … if they want it bad enough

Tennessee over Kansas – 2 not so good teams – as above – someone’s gonna have to win … or they could tie I suppose.

St. Louis over Jacksonville – Odds makers have give St. Louis a big spread on this one but I wouldn’t pay too much attention to it.  All things considered, they should win.

Arizona over Carolina – Just giving it to them on a home field advantage – sometimes you can’t overthink these things.

Denver over Dallas – need I explain this?

San Francisco over Houston – every week Kaepernick has more to prove – he’s kind of doing it but he needs to do it in a bigger way … on the field.

San Diego over Oakland – San Diego scores and lets points in – working in their favor is a low scoring Oakland team.

New York Jets over Atlanta – in Atlanta – sometimes you just have to live dangerously.

The San Francisco Saga of Sanaa & Colin … just play already

Maybe they are ... Maybe they're not

Maybe they are … Maybe they’re not

Oh Good. Something’s coming out now that we can all blame Colin’s lack of success on the field on.  It’s a woman.  We are a distraction no matter how you look at it. “Cougar” is just such a stupid term so I’m going to call her an older than him woman. Sanaa’s 17 years older than the little fella, so here’s hoping he can keep up with her.  I hope they’re both happy for now, forever, for whenever … and actually … whatever. Just watch out for the sack, throw the ball and take your team down the field. Touchdown.  Thank you.  Anything beyond that is on you.

Week 4 NFL Picks, Pokes, and Ponders

Yes, I picked St. Louis for Thursday Night — Unfortunately St. Louis didn’t pick themselves and this display of Kaepernick -ing by Robert Quinn

811340402

 

Was a little bit premature…. in the grand scheme of things as San Fran did beat them 35 to 11.  Yeah, thanks for that.  More time playing please and less time on the theatrics.

WEEK 4 PICKS — THE REST

GOING IN AFTER WEEK 3 @ 30-18 (not counting that Thursday Night debacle just yet)

In London — Pittsburgh over Minnesota Vikings — Someone’s gotta win and someone’s gotta lose.  Hopefully Big Ben, in close proximity to the actual Big Ben, will get his timing right.  Maybe there’ll be some sort of almighty syncing of all things football.

Baltimore over Buffalo — you know by now how I feel about Buffalo — and it stems back to that Quarterback (who shall remain nameless) that wore a freaking white head band — and it wasn’t the 80s — play football for God’s sake — screw the hair — get dirty.  I digress — Baltimore over Buffalo.

Cincinnati over Cleveland — just because that’s what I think.  Well, apparently Orange is the new Black.

Indy over Jacksonville — we shouldn’t have to talk about this.

Seattle over Houston — I think Russell Wilson, the least hyped of the new young QBs, has got it going on.  Seattle Seahawks are better at home, but they’re getting better on the road.

Tampa Bay over Arizona — this one troubles me somewhat.  Two crappy teams playing each other usually means a crappy game …. but Any Given Sunday … anything can happen.

Chicago over Detroit — I may regret this one but Detroit hasn’t fully proven their ability yet, they’re a little all over the place and they have some injuries.  We’ll see.

Kansas City Chiefs over The New York Giants.  There is no reason why Kansas can’t win this.

I’m going way way  way out there and taking The New York Jets over Tennessee.

Dallas over San Diego — This is another tough one in a week of tough ones.

Washington Redskins (are they going to change that name?) over Oakland.  Oakland’s got a tough defensive line but Washington can put up some points.  It’s time for Washington to get their fingers out of their collective butts and get to playing some football.

Denver over Philly — The elder Manning ain’t giving up anything in his own backyard.  His house, his rules.

New England Patriots over Atlanta — New England isn’t putting up a lot of points — just enough to win, which in the straight up world I’m living in, is in fact, just enough.

New Orleans over Miami — I expect the Big Fish to put up a good fight when the Saints try to reel them in.  If New Orleans doesn’t run out of steam they’ll be having a good ole fish fry after the game.
