Open Thread and NFL Conference Championships 2012. Do note, it says OPEN THREAD. This one just happens to have a couple of football games in the background. So, anything goes, not just football, m’kay?
(like we are ever on topic… )
San Fransisco 49ers versus the Atlanta Falcons. Vegas is giving Atlanta 4 points at home. That really means 7 because home field gets ya 3 out of the blocks.
Ravens Ray Lewis’s versus the New England Patriots. Vegas is giving Baltimore 9 on the road. 9 is a lot for a conference championship. Frankly if both of these teams could lose, I would be happy. However I dislike the Ravens because they are a fierce rival, I dislike the Pats because they cheated and are led by a whining Prima donna at qb who the league protects at a all costs, even throwing games for the Pats ( see tuck rule, aka Brady rule ). Most of the time the league creates rules like the Blount Rule or the Hines Ward rule to disallow players from playing too rough and hard, the Brady rule is to protect the Prima donna so his hair doesn’t get mussed. So, since I respect the Ravens and want to see Ray Lewis get a Lombardi trophy in his last year, I will root for the Ravens as will all of the Steeler Nation. C’mon, admit it, if Ray played on your team you would LOVE him!
And it’s an open thread.
