PLAYOFFS?? OH YEAH PLAYOFFS!!!!!

The New York Football Giants are back in the Super Bowl Tournament after a wonderful ass kicking of the Dallas Cowgirls at GIANTS Stadium last night. So now it’s on to the Tournament and the Atlanta Falcons come to the Swamp. The Atlanta offense will a huge test for the G-Men D, so for the first time in a long time, I’m hoping for a good ol’ fashion Nor’Easter to hit East Rutherford, NJ on Sunday

REMEMBER WHAT TODAY MEANS

I’m running out the door as my son is marching in the Memorial Day Parade in Staten Island today with his Boy Scout troop but I just wanted to make mention of the 5-5 roadie the Mets just finished

I said 6-4 would be th emark to hit and with the melt down in LA and players dropping left and right winning 2 of the 3 series is encouraging.

Looks like F- Mart will join th eteam as early as tonight. How about we Mets fans let the kid breathe before we put Willie Mays aspirations on him?

At what point does Omar DL Jose Reyes? Reyes is not getting any better and now Ramon Martinez is hurting and from reading Fernando Tatis words in the paper this morning he is not looking forward to playing short.  Either bring up Ruben Tejada or Jose Cornado go try to get Omar Vizquel from the Rangers   

Picked up a nice 30 in Louisville Slugger at the flea market yesterday and a huge poster of the NY Football Giants winning the Super Bowl XLII for my office wall for 5 bucks oh and a nice sun burn as well

IT’S FEBRUARY 1, SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? TWO-WEEKS UNTIL PITCHERS AND CATCHERS!

What is there something else going on today? Oh yeah the Super Bowl. I never understood why people who never watch football get all excited to watch the Super Bowl? It would be like me watching the finale of Desperate Housewives a show I couldn’t give a rats ass about. 

That’s why I avoid Super Bowl parties. I’ve been dragged to a few in my day by my wife but even she would get annoyed with all the questions I’d be asked at these functions  asking to explain ever play and all the rules and that’s why I’ll be home in my Archie Bunker recliner enjoying the game.

What I look for today is who wins the turnover battle. Ben Roethlisberger has a tendency to throw picks and the Cardinal defense has been getting turnovers this post season so that is an intriguing matchup. Can the Steelers run the football and control the clock on offense and use a ball control offense as a defense to keep Kurt Warner and his wide outs on the sidelines? 

This game looks to be a very good matchup and from reading all the predictions from the experts most of them are split right down the middle. I have to say I’ve flip flopped all week trying to decide who I think will win but in the end I always go with the team that plays the best defense and that’s the Steelers So it’s Steelers 24-17 (right on the number) for me and Ring 6 for the Terrible Towlers.

BRING ON THOSE PHILLY PIGEONS

Different day some ol’ Mets news which means there is nothing to talk about. If not for the Rodriguez signing and the Putz trade this would be the worst off season since I started writing this blog which is going on seven years.

Derek Lowe is still on the ‘Ho Stroll, Petey wants to come back (I love you Petey but no, no ,no- time to move on with the Mets life and yours)  and there is still is a big need for a right handed corner outfielder but today and the next three days I am putting all that to the side as it’s time ot concentrate on football as the New York Football Giants get to defend their Super Bowl Championship with a play off game Sunday against the Philadelphia Pigeons.

Here’s is what we know about the Pigeons, they are Philly’s answer to the Mets as they never fulfill their fans desire with a Championship and know this too about Philadelphians They would trade 20 Phillies World Series Championships for One Pigeons Super Bowl Trophy. Philliy is a Pigeons Town first and foremost (with the Flyers second) but it’s too bad that Philly is running into the One NY team that has balls in the Football Giants.

Key to the game is Brandon Jacobs establishing his ball running prowess and the G-Men D-Line harassing the living shit out D-McMahon to the point he pukes (which he seems to do in big games)

This is a REAL NY-Philly rivalry and this time NY will come out on top

NY Football Giants 28

Philly Pigeons 17

GO BIG BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
