I was excited to hear about the NFL’s season opener…until the minute I found out who was playing.
It was the Ravens, coming off the Super Bowl win, against the Donkeys. In Denver, of course. Sad smiley face.
Immediately knew the winner and how it would play out. Denver in a rout. The high water mark was the Ravens marching down the field and scoring easily against the Denver pretend-defense. At least its pretend without PED Miller playing hopped up on speed. Sad smiley face, Donks fan. Its the truth. Bitter amphetamines to swallow there. And Donks fan would have had no problem calling Shawne Merriman a juicer. Or the Bill Romanowski who didn’t play for them.
Anyway, I would never say the NFL is fixed. Far from it. But some scenarios play out better than others. Somehow, the Baltimore Orioles managed to get precedence over the Ravens, forcing them out of their stadium for the season opener. If this game is in Baltimore, its a different story.
I tuned in for a minute to see who was winning that game. It was halftime. Al Michaels, who has never turned away from playing favorites, talked up the Donks offense. Wes Welker. Some dude named Thomas is the greatest tight end in NFL history, no one can cover him. Donkos hurry-up offense is awesome.
But the Donkeys trailed 17-14 at the half. You would have thought it was 31-7, Mules, especially with St. Tony to pile on.
I can’t wait till the Peyton Manning in Donkoland era ends.
But there’s something else I want to talk about.
How come Seattle doesn’t compete for a Super Bowl? There’s no better city to have the Big Game than Seattle, except its America’s west coast outpost. Then again, the Super Bowl has been played in Minneapolis so there isn’t much of a reason for the Super Bowl not to go to the Pacific Northwest. I guess there’s enough industry in Seattle they aren’t begging for the Big Bowl Game.
One more thing: The Big Bowl Game is in the Meadowlands this coming February. I hope its in a freak last-second blizzard where the league can’t change the venue. A Big Game in conditions football was meant to be played in.
