For the second year in a row your blogger is in the finals of the Fantasy Football league. Last week, for the second year in a row, we dispatched Judge De La O in a bitterly fought two-week playoff, creating what may become a storied REGJB-FF rivalry.
Cowboys at Eagles. Which team wants it least? Which team will back into the playoffs, a ripe target for easy pickings in the first round.
Cowpoke QB DaK P may have an injury.
(Yes, we wanted that sentence to rhyme).
The Iggles are at home. Bet several Pat's cheesesteaks wit on the home dog (bird). Iggles +2.5 at home.
Chiefs at Da Bears. You think Andy Reid won't have his team peaking for playoffs? Us either. Take the Chief in chi-town over the hapless Buins -5.5.
Bengals at Fins. This game doesn't matter, except to Miami. The Fins have no quit in them, and we like them to bounce back giving one to the Bengals who are all quit.
Monday night get-even game. The Pack goes to Minny. In days gone by faithful fans would bundle up, thermos's of coffee, hip-flasks of brandy, and warm hats adorning their game gear. It would football with a capital F, the way it was meant to be played- by tough men in the cold. These days the game is in a temp-controlled arena, 5-G wifi allowing fans to follow the game on their phones and apps. Cafe' Lattes are delivered in seat-side-service, and re-plays are included in selfies on snap-chat and tik-tok. Give us the old days and take the Vikes -5.5. One team is on the upswing (Vikes), the other is not (Pack).
Coming this week- a full week of blogging. On Monday the Captain breaks down the gender and ethnicity of the Dade Bench. On Xmas eve Rumpole asks you to comment on your favourite legal movies. Give us a few days to travel and we will be back up and running before the new year.
