As we get started with the first full version of the Perfect Football Weekend (meaning, of course, that everyone plays), I direct your attention to the following NFL Network video:
Behold, the quintessential NY Football Douchbags fan: Whiny. Needy. Clingy. Sniveling. Depends upon others to get him what he wants.
Just like the New York Football Douchebags. The pusstards who got the fucking zebras (let ‘em stay out on strike, for all I give a shit – maybe the calls will be better) to give them a safety on a pass that I promise will never again be called thusly in last year’s Subpar Bowl (no, that’s not a typo).
The Douchebags (as we segue into the actual football) who host the Dallas C’boys tonight in the first game of the NFL season. Probably the Douchebags’ll win – they’ll get the homer calls, and they hold on every fucking play, anyway, so I doubt Demarcus Ware even gets a sniff of E-Why (Wo)Manning.
But I’ll also repeat what I’ve been saying for years: they need to. I maintain that if you hit Noo Yawk’s Third-Favorite Quarterback a few times, Princess E-why will crumble.
Try it & see, Demarcus.
Friday night, my Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets renew an old, old rivalry when they take on R.L. Paschal’s Panthers at Ft. Worth’s Farrington Field. This’ll be Paschal’s first game, which is probably Heights’ only chance to squeak out a win. The Jackets have played Paschal well over the years – but that was when the talent cupboard wasn’t so bare. Paschal may finally end the losing streak here.
Saturday, Gary Patterson & his 20th-ranked TCU Horned Frogs christen the newly-rebuilt Amon G. Carter Stadium as they should feast well on the Division 1-AA Grambling State Tigers. Vegas doesn’t have a line on this game yet (I’ll edit this if/when it comes out), but hopefully TCU’s learned the lesson about having squash for a first meal.
Saturday evening, Florida A&M is the sacrificial lamb for Bob Stoops and fifth-ranked Oklahoma. Vegas is probably not even gonna rate this game. We should see a lot of Blake Bell and the rest of the second- and third-teamers – say, starting in the middle of the second quarter.
Later on that night, we’ll see what should be a pretty good matchup: Bo Pelini’s 16th-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers at the LA Coliseum to take on what looks to be not a bad UCLA Bruins squad. The Cubbies hung half a hundred on Rice last week – and while it’s not uncommon to kick the Owls around like that, it’s usually only the good teams that score that much on ‘em.
Vegas, however, has the Huskers as a 5-point road favorite, so maybe they’re still a little gun-shy. Or they think that Rick Neuheisel’s still coaching ‘em, one or the other.
Bucky’s reward for scaring the daylights out of us all against Northern Iowa was a drop in the polls to number 13. They’ll be taking it out on the road versus Oregon State Saturday. OSU’s good, but I don’t think the Badgers are gonna be in that good a mood, so…
And finally on Saturday, Turner Gill’s Liberty Flames come back down in weight class when they host Norfolk State in their home opener. The Spartans laid a 24-0 shallacking on Virginia State Saturday, but if Liberty can play like they did against Wake Forest, I like their chances here.
We’re back Sunday or thereabouts with the recap. In the meantime…not sure where exactly you are, HDD, but you’re in the Realm’s thoughts & prayers, nevertheless. (Or are you hiding because you’re worried about what the Beavers might do to Bucky? (grin))
