Your “All Aboard The Band Wagon!” NFC Wild Card Game Open Thread

I’m only human. Well, that’s the excuse I use when I screw up. Not really though but I use that to explain why I almost always cheer for that team that comes out of nowhere and against expectations, plays well or has some sort of uphill battle. Yeah, I’ve cheered for Gonzaga. I’ve cheered for Boise State. Hell, in the early 80’s I cheered for Duke. Look, I hated UNC and Dean Smith that much. The Rams got off to a very quick start this year and I waited for their house to cave in as I knew it inevitably would. Not so fast, dicknugget! They turned out to be an 11-5 team after all. So now I’m all for ’em until they lose and next year I’ll move on to another team that can make me feel as though I can feel. Enough of that let’s head off…TO THE GAME!

Falcons/Rams:

Atlanta seems a wee bit scary to me. After they stumbled here and there they finished up the season at 6-2 with the only losses being against Minny and New Orleans. The O isn’t what it was last year (but still among the league’s best) but the D became a top 10 unit. They also ended the year as #1 in third-down conversions. That’s gonna come in handy today against a L.A. D-line that makes lesser qb’s stain their jorts. The Rams? They’re fun to watch because of a.) Gurley’s talent and b.) their love of the deep ball. This one is a coin flip to me.

If you’re not a football fan there’s oodles of other stuff going on including-

NHL-

The Kings, Bruins, Leafs, Senators (ugh!) and others are icing it tonight.

College Ball-

Oklahoma, (check out Trae Young) Duke, Villanova, Kentucky, Kansas and Gonzaga are on the hardest of courts.

NBA-

Houston and Cleveland and some others can bore you if that’s your thing.

If you’re not into any of that just post pics of girlies or gifs that make you smile. Don’t worry, the commenters are high but the bar isn’t. Go Get ‘Em!

Take two shortly since I don’t know how spoiler tags work.

Spoiler

[spoiler title=”Spoilers? “]
I found some of it predictable. It also didn’t advance the story at all. I also found Laura Dern annoying as fuck all. But it was a fun movie and the cinematography was excellent. Most importantly,I was pissed Rey didn’t chop off Kylo’s hand.
