Oh wow. I’m starting to think this column is the kiss of death to good teams. I tell everyone to tune in to watch the Houston Texans and they get stomped by Bill Belichik and his Trilby with a football. So who don’t we like this week? I’ll be accepting PayPal bribes for the next two weeks to write about any team (featuring a photo of key player) you’d like to see lose big. Xmas is coming up and Momma needs a new set of rims. I’ve had to promise Flyboy and the Football Savant Offspring never to mention the team from Oakland and Lily’s requested I never mention that Crescent City bunch again.
So here’s a photo of Tom Brady. This should please my 49er fan friends (and I have many – so I’m sorry to those of you who requested that I write about them this week. I spend all day with these people and they have access to office supplies that can accurately travel a decent distance when hurled).
Also, my column gets put to bed on Friday, so I would like to take this opportunity to express my condolences to the Dallas Cowboy family for the untimely loss of Jerry Brown. But the team paid their respects in the finest way possible – victory on the field.
And to Rob Parker – currently suspended by ESPN for being a self-important bigot – I got an email from RG III — which stated simply, “Rob who?”
Here are the matchups this week (and nice job on the dog-killer’s team Thursday night, Mighty Bengals).
