Story Time – Lambeau Style

As I wrote our Happy Birthday post the other day, I realized that I didn’t have any Story Time posts last year with the exception of the All-Star Game posts.  Then at work today I was swapping stories with a coworker about our respective trips to Lambeau Field in Wisconsin.  I’ve never written this one down so I hope it’s as good as I think it is.  It’s about the time I met Barry Sanders after the Season Opener between the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions

Friday 5 – Playoffs? Playoffs?!

For today’s Friday 5, I’m going to kill two birds with one stone.  I’m going to give you our playoff predictions in Friday 5 format.  I’ll be going round by round, plus a special bonus prediction for the Pro Bowl!  It’s not the Friday 4, after all.

First, I’ll give you Weller’s official playoff prediction:

“Colts win.”

Thanks, Weller.  Now that we have that out of the way, I’ll provide a tiny bit more detail (and Weller, you should stop reading now.)

Fantasy Football

I know that to some (okay, most) of you out there the fact that I’m writing a post in mid-June about fantasy football may seem ridiculous and Bryan would agree with you. But to me, simply having just finished a fantasy draft, knowing that fantasy leagues all over the country are beginning to be organized and the simple fact that I have a fantasy team already means that the actual NFL season is less than three months away.

Anyway, the point is that the NFL season is rapidly approaching and so I signed up for an early fantasy league. Continue reading

WaB’s Take on Brett Favre

I haven’t spoken to Weller about this, but I feel very confident that he thinks the same way.  I’m going to keep this short because I’d like to write something about the Phoenix Coyotes’ financial troubles.

As you know, Favre is meeting with the Vikings’ head coach, Brad Childress, in the next few days to determine his future.  He will be 40 years old and coming off a biceps injury that he elected not to have surgery on in the offseason.  Continue reading

A Bear Fan’s Take On the Jay Cutler Trade

Wow.

Jay Cutler.

It’s obvious this trade is huge for the Bears and their fans, but for me it’s huge for a far different reason than most. A lot of people I ran into when I was out and about at the local bar scene last night were giddy. You couldn’t walk eight steps without being asked what you thought of Jay Cutler coming to town. People were even mentioning Super Bowl – and Super Bowl as in this year. I’m not as optimistic as some of the Bears’ faithful out there. But I am extremely pleased with the trade.
