CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND

BREAKING: TRUMP RESPONDS TO THE BLOG*. SEE BELOW. 
Three games, four teams, one president, one speaker, one team  on the path to immortality. 

Cheaters at K.C. We may have another "frozen tundra" classic (check out the Vince Lombardi ice bowl clip below).  The O/U is 56 and because of the weather, take the Under. The Cheaters are getting 3 on the road. K.C has one of the best home crowds- loud and involved. Brady is the old. Mahomes is the new. More importantly, the Cheaters improved secondary still cannot keep up with K.C.'s speed.  Andy Reid takes a team back to the Super Bowl for a second time, and this time he wins.  Chiefs -3, under 56. 

Rams at Saints. This is a tough one. Rams are getting 3.5. Saints may be the most complete team in the NFL, and Drew Brees wants another shot at the big one. While we will be rooting for the Rams, we cannot advise betting against the Saints at home. Give the 3.5 and take the under. 57 is too much in a championship game. 

Trump v. Pelosi. 
Pelosi has the home field advantage, having played in DC for a few decades, while POTUS is the new comer. POTUS has some built in advantages (controls military transport planes) but the speaker controls the money and money makes the world go-round. 
Trump is the rookie, while Pelosi is the wily veteran who knows the rule book inside out. Take the Speaker not to cave, while POTUS is looking for a way out of the mess he created. Never bet on someone who doesn't have an exit strategy before he starts the crisis. In other words, don't bet on a moron who has no idea what he is doing. 

The Over-Under is February 10. Take the over and buckle up. This is going to be a while. 
TRUMP RESPONDS TO THE BLOG: Shortly after posting our over/under, POTUS held a news conference with an offer to break the logjam. The proposal included money for the humanitarian crisis at the border (extra shipments of King Crab legs for the restaurants which are running short, as well as more California Chardonnays for thirsty immigrants who secure a table at a Mortons on the border)  an offer to extend DACA (an acronym of which we know nothing about), and a provision to extend capital gains tax breaks for immigrants who post stock trading gains over $750,000.00 in any one year, excluding (of course) 503 exchange gains reportable under section 63 (duh). In other words, in Trump's view, everything necessary to help immigrants at our border. 

In the real world POTUS still wants to deport everyone with an accent (except Mrs. Trump) or whose skin is not lily white (like maybe Rumpole's? WOW there's a thought you have to admit you-loyal reader-never ever had, did ya? Psych!). He still sees a world where people with brown skin stand with their noses pressed to the gaps in the steel slats watching enviously while Americans are eating McDonalds and sipping diet cokes while zipping around on their scooters because they are too obese to walk. 

And check out Mr. Markus's blog where the rumors of an FDC sick-out-slow-down are being explored. First a "possible" TB scare shit down FDC. Before that attorneys were told the elevators weren't working and it would take four hours. When the clients showed up, they said the elevators were working fine. 
What's next? Ebola? Blue-flu? Poltergeists? Communist infiltration of the email system? North Korean hackers shutting down FDC? It happened to Sony.  




*Possibly, but probably not.

I remember two years ago watching the championships at the Ren, a Venue. Wild Bison sliders with organic Vidalia onion and peach slurry. Buffalo fried turkey wings with blue cheese flown in from Lyons, France. Organic sweet potato noodles in a garlic and butter sauce and Oysters from Rhode Island that were plump and juicy and salty. They had a tequila shooter with an oyster that I had a few of. And their Calle Ocho Micro brew...lets just say I took Uber home.

That's when the hottie Layla was running the bar and it was standing room only.

gonna get me some said...

Gov shut-down positive story. My BF is commitment phobic. But he's a fed worker and feeling the pinch. He's giving up his apartment the end of the month and moving in! Jackpot! Thank you Pres Trump and Speaker Pelosi! This cowgirl ain't goin to be lonely at night no more!

Rump's gonna nail the under in the first game (57) and probably the winner too- Saints -3.5. The man is a football savant.

Real Fake Blecher said...

RFBlecher here- Saints driving - up 20-17- looking for a turnover here and Rams to drive for the lead. A prediction.

Real Fake Blecher said...

Oooo….fumble. But Ain'ts recovered. I'm still calling for a turnover. Aint's lookin tight.

Fake Alex Michaels said...

You're an idiot I have 10,000 on this game. Saints a lock. A mortal lock.
A Romanian lock. Lock and load lock.

Robbie-Coleman almost picked Ted Ginn's pocket.
Ted Ginn, remember him? Fins #1 draft pick bust ala Nick Saban.

Bill Belchick said...

I'm watching the Sands Of Iwo Jima. The Duke has just fought his way to the top. Don't say it Stryker.…"I see you made it....as a matter of fact I never felt so good in my life..." then...BLAM a Jap gets him. And he dies. And then his men read his letter to his kid...apologizing for not being a good father. "I have a feeling this could be the last time I can write you. if we could have been together even for a little while, I feel I could explain things.. Never hurt anyone...Always do what your heart tells you is right...when you grow older and get to know more about me you'll see I've been a failure in many ways....if there was only more time...." And then they say "I guess he never finished it" and then one of his men says he will finish it for him and then the boys raise old Glory on top of the mountain and I lose it. The Halls of Montezuma starts playing...
Never fails to make me cry.

Semper Fi Marine.
