|So hot. So true.|
OK, so March seems to be the preferred month for this. Let's scroll through the weekends and see what works and what does not. As for me, I don't have any plans (or at least I don't think so) outside of being a below average father.
3/7 - The CBJ are at home that night against Colorado. I asked Dut to use his connections to get us a luxury box. He said that he couldn't but offered to blow everyone. Man, what's his deal anyway?
3/14 - It's conference tournament weekend and some people may be heading to wherever the Big Ten is playing theirs this year. FYI, St. Patrick's Day is on a Tuesday if you don't have kids.
3/21 - First round of March Madness, bruh! And we've got Friday/Sunday games in Columbus! That is sort of perfect for a Saturday RibFest, don't you think? I was assuming that Kentucky would be a lock to come up here but there are games at Louisville, too, so they will mos def stay home. Sorry, Seal.
3/28 - It's Easter weekend which could mean travel for some of us (probably me, actually). Speaking of the NCAA tournament, there is a Regional at The Q on this weekend. THE DIFF!!!
I think that 3/21 sort of works really well but everyone can chime in with what they prefer. I already know that Grump, Drew, Jeff, Damman, Lacey, and Ape are in there like swimwear. Cakes might be granted permission to not attend due to no one liking him and that whole newborn thing. I want new blood. How about a Rex or a -Rex? A Daniel, Dut, Nibbles, Sauls, and Clubber? Seal and Company? Ide and Burke? Prime and MUFan! You know that if Iceman comes north, he's bringing 40 people like always. Let's shut Barley's the fuck down, BRAH!
OK then, let's get to round 2 of our NFL Playoff Contest. Remember that you are all playing for "question mark". Maybe I'll buy your RibFest dinner if you attend. What happens if I win though? That's an ELITE question. I should make you all chip in to buy me a Flacco jersey. This weekend's slate of games are damn good and while the spreads are BIG, history tells us that one of the favorites is going down.
Baltimore @ New England -6.5 O/U 47.5 - I bow down at the Church of ELITE. We've all been beaten over the head with how the Ravens always play the Pats tough. In FACT, I'll pick Baltimore to knock out Belichick again because Ray Rice is tougher than Aaron Hernandez. BAL OVER
Carolina @ Seattle -10.5 O/U 39.5 - On paper, this game looks like it will suck. In real life, this game will probably suck. I can't imagine Cam winning in Seattle or even keeping it all that close. SEA UNDER
Dallas @ Green Bay -6.5 O/U 52.5 - If the universe balances itself out this weekend then Dallas will get beat on some sort of atrocious call. That MUST happen. I don't have a ton of faith in T-Bone going up and winning a game in single digit temperatures. But the status of Rodgers' calf is terrifying. I think that the Cowboys keep it close but the Packers win with a FG at the gun and the nation rejoices. DAL UNDER
Indianapolis @ Denver -7.5 O/U 53.5 - Oh baby! Peyton Manning in the playoffs is always my time to shine as a guy who knows more about football than all of you. ELI IS SUPERIOR! I'm not feeling an upset here though. I actually think that the Broncos kick the shit out an OVERRATED Colts team that can't run the ball and is shitty on D. DEN OVER
I think that come Monday morning, we are preparing for BAL/DEN and GB/SEA next weekend which is fine by me. Let's get a look at the standings:
5-3: G$, JSaul
4-4: Drew, Jeff, Iceman, Andrew B
3-5: Ace, Seal, -Rex, Burke
2-6: Prime, Lacey
Let's knock out that RibFest IV date today before we're at each others throats again next week once college football crowns their champion (Captain Dildo). Make your picks and Carry The Flag!
