It’s not NCAA FBS football, but it’ll have to do. The Saints kick off at San Francisco here in about 10 minutes, and of course the TEBOW Broncos will be at New England for the night game.
Sunday sees a game it’s really hard to get excited about between Houston and Baltimore. Apologies to those who care, but man, those teams put us to sleep. We see that Houston has scored a respectable average of 26 points per game won, but it really seems like less. Maybe the Texans’ losing slide at the end of the season created a mental prejudice. The 12-4 Ravens did beat Houston during the season, and presumably will be favored tomorrow, although of course they sat out the wild-card weekend.
The Sunday night game will see the Giants at Packers. Green Bay obviously has the edge, but we never count the Giants out entirely.
Here’s an interesting factoid in preparation for tonight’s All-Tebow-all-the-time coverage. One of my younger sisters, attempting to say the word football for the first time as a toddler, came out with “feebaw.” Get it? Tebow? Feebaw?
All right, the human-interest coverage is going lame very quickly, and the insightful commentary has just about dried up. Enjoy the games. Gotta go feed the neighbors’ dogs.
