NFL Playoffs Day 2 Thread: Falcons/Giants (10a), Steelers/Tebows (1:30p)

Look up, what do you see?
all of you and all of me
fluorescent and starry
some of them, they surprise

the bus ride, I went to write this, 4 am,
this blogpost

A field with Broncos' little offense,
all the boys and all the girls
sweet-talked, each and every one of them a little scared

The Steelers came.

--Tebow, The Letter

Aluminum. It tastes like fear.

After hearing how many people with HDTVs don't actually get HD programming......
I'm gonna say i hope you guys aren't watching the game with your little red/white/yellow cables hooked up :)

@DK323

I have some relatives who have a really nice Samsung flatscreen HD-ready TV. But they don't pay for HD. Their reasoning is strained; they say they already pay the cable company enough. Old people are strange. Just pay another $5.95 a month! As it is, the picture is worse than if HD had never been invented.

I have to skip the first NFL game today in order to do some so-called "family" activity. Then I'll be in for some ales and the second game. Keep it real, SoSGers!

Spank, get well soon.

Spank said...

I pick the Falcons and Tebows for the win.

Ark St up 13-7 early in the second, but threatening. N Illinois QB just limped off the field. Got our selves a game.

Dusty Baker said...

God must be feeling pretty fucking smug right now about Tebow.

Spank said...

I wish a beer was filling my mug.

Lakers up by 10 over Vancouver.

Dusty Baker said...

My lap is full of pug right now.

Dusty Baker said...

28-13 N Illinois over Razorbacks Lite

Fernie V said...

I made fun of tebow and now I have a pimple by my lip.

Spank said...

@ FernieV

Are you sure that's not a herpe?

Dusty Baker said...

That's an MVP type comment, FV.

It is not herpes, it is a pimple away from my lips in the area.
