So I just got back from a bike ride. It lasted for about 30 mins, which is not that bad I don’t think. There was some sweating, some aching, some trouble getting started but overall not too bad. But I did come up with one conclusion. That bike of mine is out of shape. He didn’t want to go anywhere. I guess I am just going to have to keep riding it until he gets into shape. Lol, maybe someone else is in denial? Oh well, a good ride nonetheless. Now for an ice bath, my legs are screaming.
It is the day before the NFC Championship game. I can’t wait to see the Giants play the Panthers. Wait what? Nah you are kidding me. The Eagles @ the Cardinals? Interesting. I knew it. I saw it coming. Well not the Cardinals. But I always knew the Eagles had the potential to get there. I even called it when the Phillies were in the playoffs. This might be Philly’s year for sports. The Soul won the Arena league, the Phils won, and now the Eagles are one game away from the Super Bowl. You fans over at Fed Ex field didn’t believe me. My brother and I held our signs high! Signs that said ‘Fly Eagles Fly’ and ‘Our Year.’ Did you cheer with us? No. But you did throw your leftover pretzels and nachos at us. Nice touch. A very classy move.
And through all those fingers and f-you’s I just smiled. I knew what was in store. The Skins would go back to their lives, watching the playoffs on tv and wearing dresses for the reporters.
So Fly Eagles Fly. See you in Tampa!
I have been reading a lot about how the NFL is threatening to blackout certain regional games this weekend. The NFL already granted two 24 extensions for the Arizona Cardinals to sell all their tickets. Seriously? The NFL is going to punish these areas if they can’t afford 100 dollar tickets to go to a playoff game? I think this is absolutely ridiculous. It seems the NFL is calling out the fans and telling them to step it up. Luckily for the Phoenix area the game finally sold out yesterday. But not the Vikes are in the situation. There are still a little over 3,000 tickets left to be sold or the game will not be shown in the Minnesota area.
Another area of argument for theses fans is that none of the home teams playing this weekend are favored. So why would the fans want to spend the money to see their teams go one and done. I know if the game was in Philly, they would not be having this problem. Hell, they could play the game in Dallas, and Cowboys fans would sell out the game to hopefully see the Eagles lose. Just ask Sally. I can see her sitting on her couch with an Eagles voodoo doll, ha. Boo the NFL this weekend, but go football!!
And go Birds!
