Anything Better Than NFL playoffs?

I usually consider baseball my favorite sport, but football, and the NBA aren't too far behind. I am not much of a college football fan, but the NFL is where it is at. Even though the World Series has many great moments, I don't think the thrill of the NFL playoffs can be matched by any other sport for me.

Especially the first couple rounds. The match ups are always so much better in my mind. Seeing amazing games like the Arizona/Green Bay game last week was just another reason to solidify my view of this. Teams that are more closely matched show up in these rounds typically from my experience. Teams that have more variety in their winning than the typical well-rounded teams that come later, or the defensive forces that make games into borefests as we get deeper. Rather be shopping for some Stuart Weitzman shoe than watch these games. I wouldn't, but you get the point.

This week it is definitely the Arizona @ New Orleans game that is the one I want to see. Two of my favorite QBs in the league in Kurt :The Immortal" Warner, and Drew Brees squaring off in a point-fest.

Let's just get this out of the way too: If you don't think Warner is a HOFer you are an idiot. End.

Pistons Finally Win!

Wow...I was really tearing my hair out over that team. Early in the year we got lucky and saw a bunch of young guys playing their asses off every night. Sticking in games, and looking like they were a real playoff team when we finally got Rip and Tay back from spending their nights on the sidelines wearing a tuxedo.

Then all of a sudden they started to lose. All THE TIME. Then it wasn't just losing. It was getting blown the hell out every damn night. To the tune of losing 13 straight games! How does a team that plays so hard to start the year become so bad?

Finally,the Washington Wizards faced a Pistons team that played an almost perfect game on Tuesday night. It actually took a hot shooting night, and a ton of assists for the Pistons to win this game too with a final of 99-90.

I just don't get it. Really I don't. I get it that they weren't going to be that good this year. Fine. I wasn't expecting much anyways, but they were a fun young team to watch early on. Then they just became a bunch of bungling fools.

To the lottery! Oh...and there is some 7 foot foreigner that is sniffing the top 3 this year in the draft. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
