PLAYOFF SUNDAY

UPDATE: 33-3 Vikes. I just can't even tell you the money I have made in the last decade betting against the cowpokes in the playoffs! It's like printing money!! Now as to game two, I stand by my pick but must tell you I find myself rooting for the Jets because I like their coach.

UPDATE: Favre to Rice for their second TD hookup today. In the second quarter it' Vikings 14-cowpokes 3. OK-everybody now: "Goodbye Phillips, Goodbye Romo, Goodbye Phillips, your coaching is Vanilla."


Two more big games round out this playoff weekend. 1-1 yesterday and as the alert commentators were quick to point out, a price is paid for betting against Peyton Manning.

The evening matchup is the J....E....T....S against the San Diego Chargers.

We've said before that the Jets are built for the playoffs, but the train ride ends here. The Jets backed into the playoffs by being lucky enough to play their last two games against two teams that had locked up playoff spots and didn't need to win and rested their starters. We give the Jets credit for taking it right back to the hapless Bengals last week, but remember...they're the Bungles....err....Bengals. Enough said.

While we don't like the Chargers Coach, this team has too much firepower to lose. There is only so far a rookie QB can take a playoff team, and while the Ravens Flacco took his team last year to the Championship game as a rookie, this Jets team is not the Ravens. True they are built in the image of the Ravens (by the Ravens former Defensive Coordinator) but they just fall a bit short this year in talent. The Chargers are favoured by 8 and we think they'll cover. Chargers -8 +2500.


(update: winner winner chicken dinner. Vikes 33-3).
Cowpokes at Minnesotta. One win last week and half the commentators on sports talk radio are calling the Cowpokes the best team in the playoffs. Are you kidding me? This is prime cowpoke swoon time. This is the time the cowpokes step up to the plate and take a mighty swing...and whiff. The Vikings bring the best runner in the game (Peterson) the NFC offensive rookie of the year (Percy Harvin) and some hack at QB named Favre. The cowpokes counter with one of the worst coaches in the league- Vanilla Phillips. We're not sure anyone is getting past the Saints next week, but we sure will love to watch the cowpokes implode again this January. It just gives us so much enjoyment.

Vikings -3 +1000.

Being an AFC fan I'm not sure why I dislike Vanilla Phillips so much. By all rights I should just quietly enjoy the cowpokes failure at Phillips inept hands.
But somehow Phillips galling inability to coach a decent team just drives me nuts.

Listen kid- how many times to I have to tell ya- we fakes have no- repeat- no involvement whatsoever with our namesakes. in fact - other than a name which we borrow- we have nothing to do with them and we couldn't care less how they are or what they're up to. Being too nice in this business can get you eaten alive. Forget him and his stupid toe.

That one hurt. 40-40-1 going into that game and down $2620 for the year. You had $2500 on the game with a chance to nearly get back to even. Still can't believe that the Jets are in the AFC Championship game. Hope the Colts don't pull a repeat of January 69. At least Sharpe isn't still wearing his pimp outfit from yesterday's show. How ridiculous did that thing look. How is it that he keeps that job - I can't understand 3/4 of what comes out of his mouth. Hey Rump, when is the last time two number one seeds played in the SB?

You owe me three grand plus the vig. Time to pay up or meet the fate of your buddy Pick 'Em Paulie, who is enjoying an extremely long "tropical vacation" right now.

Maybe this is why our Public Defender doesn't have time to investigate the SAO, or answer his critics... He's playing FARMVILLE on FACEBOOK, a fantasy role playing game where you grow imaginary crops and milk fantasy cows.

I'm not making this up.

Looks like Carlos was farming on Wednesday morining and afternoon on December 30. Maybe he was on vacation during that week.
