Will preface this by saying I am copping out this time on Sacrilegious Sunday, partly because there are no football games and didn't want to bother with commenting on other sports. Mostly because don't have the time to give this proper attention. So here are some absurd things that have happened over the season in my manic mind, all that scientifically point to an impending apocalypse.
There used to be 3 undefeated teams early in the season. Green Bay Packers, last season champions, made sense. However, how did the Detroit Lions make it? More perplexing, how did the Buffalo Bills stay undefeated for awhile? How did the Lions make it to the playoffs?
Let's go back to the Bills, they BEAT the PATRIOTS! Ironically, with a last minute field goal, the way the Pats have won just about all their Super Bowls with. Let's kick up the notch, Bills lose the very next week the same way they beat the Pats!
On the complete other end of the spectrum there were 3 teams that seemed like they would NEVER win a game. The expected losers were St. Louis Rams, then Miami Dolphins. Yet the Indianapolis Colts were undefeated for near eternity. Mostly because Peyton Manning was out. New Orleans, you know you will be in same boat if anything ever happened to Drew Brees. Speaking of which, ironic that the magick city held "Voodoo" fest on Halloween weekend, same time that St. Louis Rams won their first game by beating those Saints.
Last food for thought, anybody find it strange how the last undefeated team (Green Bay Packers) lost their first game the same week that Indianapolis Colts won their first game this season? And that baby Manning is in the spotlight pressure to win since big brother is out?
Just stating the facts, you be the judge and feel free to add other absurdities. Cheers to what may be the strangest, and hopefully last, Super Bowl we ever see.
