2020 PS-3

Packers 26 Buccaneers 31

Matt Lefleur should be struck about the head and shoulders with a rubber hose several times.  You’ve got a little over 2 minutes left in the game, 3rd and goal, you don’t make it (Aaron should’ve run and could’ve probably made it in, he’s faster than Jason Pierre-Pau), and you kick a field goal instead of running it? A.J. Dillon was running into the line and dragging Bucs with him gaining 7 yards!  But no, you kick a field goal and give the ball to Tom Brady, who’s an expert at killing the clock.

Packers 32 LA Lambs 18

 The stage lights are dark and the curtain drops on Act 2 of SB55.  As expected (because we Bleed Green) our hero and his team live to play a part in Act 3.  We are written into Scene 1 along with an aging actor Tommy Bay, his sup-porting cast and their director Bruce Arians, who looks like he was released from the ER only if he wore all his monitors during the game.

Gameday "Super"stitions 

Very Superstitious Writing on the Wall!!  Looks like it says, “Go Pack! GO!!” 

Anyone who knows me well, knows I’m superstitious like a spooky old lady when it comes to Game day.  Now keep in mind, I inspect Nuclear Power Plants for a living, I have stood on top of a reactor at Full Power.   Let me tell you about Super(stitious) Sundays. 

2020 Week 17

Packers 35 Duh Bears 16

Author’s Note:  This may have a “Just Sayin’” flavor to it, sorry Jimmy. 

I so want to be a fan of MVS.  I mean that seriously.  I like his speed, his size, he can run routes well.  But THOSE HANDS!!  When he’s in a high-light on Good Morning Football, the hosts do a sing-song on his voice “MarQUEZ ValDEZ Scant-ling!”  I think it’s kinda catchy!  When he is on the highlight reel, it’s a treat to watch.  It’s a lot like watching Jermichael Finley though.  You never knew what you were going to get with him though.  The ball would hit him in the hands and drop to the turf.  Roberto Duran the boxer used to be known as Manos de Piedra, Hands of Stone. 

2020 Week 16

Packers 40 Tightens 14 

Before I start about the Packer game, Let me say a few words about the Badgers.  Final Score UW 42 ~ Wake Forest 28.  To those that watched that game, it was one of the wackiest bowl game ever.  First we spotted them 14 points before tying the score at halftime. We didn’t get the lead until 1:20 left in the 3rd. Wake Forest had 518 total yards to our 266 yet we held a 7:44 edge in time of pos-session.  The reason for the UW victory? 4 INT’s by UW with  a total of 176 return yards, netting TD drives of  9, 2 & 3 yards.  Then to be true to the year that is 2020, the crystal football atop the “Duke Mayonnaise Trophy” comes loose in the locker room, crashing into infinite pieces.

2020 Week 15

Packers 24 Panthers 16

A few observations:  Jersey Mike’s subs is stilled called Jersey Mike’s, not just Mike’s.  I think the Jersey is just redundant; we’re already in Jersey, shouldn’t it just be called Mike’s?  There isn’t a way to sync XM homegame feed with the games on TV.  For some reason, Buffalo Wild Wing decided to close at 10 on Saturday, so I had to leave and drive back to my hotel.

2020 Week 14

Packers 31 Lyins 24

That was fun!  Packer fans at Spare Time and around the world had a ton of things to cheer about during Sunday’s victory against the hapless Lions.  But then there were quite a few groans and curses as well. Too many for a team (and fan base) intent on winning a 14th NFL Championship and 5th Lombardi Trophy this year.  Let’s go through all the groaners before we get to the good stuff about the Packers’ win which conquered the NFC North.
