No doubt all are as geeked as I am for the big Hippo/yeah right Derby (9:15, NBCSN), followed by Spurs hosting United (11:30, NBCSN).  But let’s acknowledge the obvious, as NFL Divisional play takes the spotlight.

Kansas City came out for the snow day fun, and they weren’t fucking around.  31-13 is your final, but if anything that undersells the raw dominance displayed by Mahones-y, Damien Williams, and especially the Chefs’ front seven.  Indy got only a punt block TD in the first half (off a blatant missed OL assignment), and a late, nigh-garbage time TD (followed by missed extra point).  KC also lost a fumble inside its own 20 – another freak play – but took it back from HODOR! two plays later.  That 3-score margin was in place a solid majority of the game, and nobody can really fault Andy Reid’s gameplan one iota.  They will host the Clippers du Merde/P*ts winner next Sunday at 6:40.

Later in the evening, you had a grind-it-out clash in the LA Coliseum, a script one might expect to go the Non-Gendered Cowpersons’ favour.  You would be wrong.  Then, you would expect Gurley Man to have been a force of nature.  He played, and played ok…but wrong again.  ‘Twas Donks WOO!! alumnus CJ “Bash” Anderson who carried RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAM IT!! on his shoulders (and massive derriere) into the next round.  Yes, the guy cut by CAR and OAK, brought in off the street for Week 16.  He converted 23 carries for 123 and 2 scores.  And it seemed like even more than that.  DAK! was able to cut the 2nd half margin twice to 8 points – but Baby Buster converted 3rd and 7 after the 2-minute warning, and LA never gave the ball back.  30-22 is your final, with N’Awlins likely hosting RRRRRRRRRRRRRAM IT!! in a regular season re-match, for all the NFC marbles.

Yes, my #ShameBet received a stay of execution, for which I am most grateful.  Not particularly hopeful it will amount to any more than that, with the offense still out of rhythm and the team overall seeming nervous as fuck (just like last year’s playoffs).  But we will just have to wait and see.  A new week is a new week.  Change is the only constant.  Everybody but KC looks vulnerable – and we’ve seen them be plenty vulnerable.

Your Sunday Roundtable thoughts:

Beer Guy Rob:

Chargers/P*triots – Man, fuck Dean Spanos for making me have to root for the Patriots. 30-16 Patriots(ugh – I feel so dirty)

Cowboys/Rams – “GUMBO GUMBO GUMBO!!!” versus “Ayyy – I got your gumbo right here!” 23-7 Saints; only 18 references to the Super Bowl power failure.

WCS:

Shitty Clippers/Tawmmys – GO FACKIN METEAHAH 24-21 Marmalards

Birds of War/GUMBO – The Gang Goes to the Super Dome And Gets Massacred 41-20 Breesus

Old School Zero:

Scammed Diego/Fuck You – [a howling wind filled with unearthly screams].

Beignets/Wawa pork rolls – just keep telling yourself it’s only a game and don’t look behind you.

Horatio Cornblower:

P*triots/Chargers –  The Chargers get off to a roaring start, then their RB gets hurt and pedals away the rest of the game on the sidelines while the Patriots storm back.  On the plus side Dean Spanos loses.  24-13 Fahckin’ Patriots.

Saints/Eagles –  The Eagles are only here because the Bears employ Stephen Hawking’s corpse as a kicker.  The Saints have been firing on all cylinders, the Eagles are that pick-up slowly sinking into your asshole neighbor’s front yard.  24-13 Saints.

Yeah Right:

Bolts/Pats – Rejoice one and all! Pats go one and done as the more complete team takes a surprising victory on the road. Chargers 34-30 – which sets the stage for… (impossible outcome dreamed of – Carson hosting AFC Title Match)

Philly/Saints – Way too much Brees and dome field advantage for Biggus Dickus Nickus to overcome. Saints 38-17

WhyEaglesWhy:

Chargers/P*triots –I was all ready to pick the Chargers, as Laserface has somehow morphed from angry prick to lovable old curmudgeon. However, the Patriots are at home and it’s going to snow. Even this Kidz Bop version of the Pats should win. NE 23 LAC 20

Eagles/Saints – The Saints beat the Eagles 48-7 eight weeks ago, and the game wasn’t as close as the score indicates. But these are both different teams now. The Eagles have found their mojo, and the Saints have averaged only 19 PPG in their last 5 games. Now, if the Saints score 19, the Eagles will win. However, the Saints are still the better team here and will not score 19. Nobody wants to be wrong more than I do, but… NO 31 PHI 23

Game Time Decision:

LAC vs NE – Please, please, please let a meteor hit the stadium just after kick off.  Float boy has enough spawn that one will survive to keep the name going.  If not, I think that the Chargers win this one in a tight game.  #TeamMeteor

PHI vs NO – Bresus holds serve and BDN goes home with a bad case of black and gold balls.

King Hippo:

Clippers du Merde/P*ts – We got Andy Reid pissing in the Narrative wind and howling with laughter, plus Two of the Good Ones saying “fuck” on teevee yesterday.  We are due a heaping helping of poop, and Clippers du Merde playing their 2nd straight 10am “body clock” game is a bridge too far.  Especially with Laserface not playing very well since their win in Arrowhead (but oh, what a re-match that would have been).  NE 34, CdM 17

Iggles/Saints – This line seems too big, even if N’Awlins did dry hump Philly 48-7 during the regular season.  Not the same Iggles side, with Big Dick Nick in the saddle.  But I am in favour of shattering narratives this playoffs, and he really ain’t a magical unicorn.  Neither is that still-dicey for the playoffs secondary.  NO 35, PHI 20

Senor Weaselo:

Volga BOLTMAN/P*ts – Team that loves the road vs. team that seems to score all their points at home, as the home/road splits are Coors-esque. Even the Eldritch that is BOLTMAN can do so much against the constant for that is BLEERGH, so I pick the P*ts because we can’t have nice things.

I did the Iggy/Breesus and Pals – Foles and the Big Dick Brigade may put up some points but ironically may not have enough D to stop the Saints.

BrettFavresColonoscopy (a reminder):

Still Alive!

Balls of Steel and Fury:

Chargers-P*ts – The Pats will win because we can’t have nice things because I touch myself. A lot.

Saints-Eagles – I really like the Eagles and I think this will be the best game of the weekend. Saints at home, though, are tough to beat. Saints by a field goal.

Son Of Spam:

Chargers-P*ts – Chargers beat Patriots because I can dream.

Saints-Eagles – Eagles beat Saints because Nick Foles is a postseason magical unicorn only his horn’s not on his head.

Litre_cola:

Chargers-P*ts – The soccer stadium NFL team will squeak by the P*ts on a Marmalard float to Hunter Henry.

Saints-Eagles – Alas I will bet on the Iggles but I dont think jenkins and the 3 homeless guys can cover the Saints.

I was gonna go with another Florida classic, “Astronaut who drove across the country in a diaper.”

Because it’s moving quickly but constantly on the verge of shitting itself?

I’m high on bath salts and diesel fuel, and I have to teach a Sunday School class in 25 minutes.

You think you’re fucked? Ha ha, I can do it and they’ll love me.

Nice score, Litre Cola!

Have both teams to score and manure to win this one. Should have bet 2 nil on the 1st one as I had envisioned that. That being said was very happy I didnt bet until the end.

I’m pretty chill about the Chiefs winning yesterday, but I am a little bummed that they finally broke their 25 year streak of not having a legitimate win in the playoffs.

Just made some scrambled eggs w andouille sausage and cheese. Have the house to myself so I am going to kick back, catch up with all the news papers I didn’t read, and play my ipod far too loudly.

See you at the games!

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Look at BFC all stylin’ in Vegas! You know he’s still passed out, right?

Fronkenshteen

I love morning in Las Vegas. The desert is beautiful, the breakfast buffets are sparsely populated, and the cocktail waitresses in the sports books aren’t busy, so you can chat them up over bloody Mary’s.

This is when you escape through the windows because that car door ain’t gonna open, especially if it floats that well. Break the side window glass with your skull, or even better with someone else’s skull.

If, by “punch” you mean “put a Javelin anti-tank missile through his chest,” I’m right there with you.

I’m gonna shovel snow till the hippo/yeah right derby. WOULDN’T WANT ANYTHING TO IMPEDE MY PARENTS’ JOURNEY OUT OF HERE BEFORE MARMALARD V THE HONKIES, NOW WOULD WE?!

litre_cola

UNLESS THEY ARE GIVING YOU A BREAK FROM FRONKENSHPAWN THEN BEAT IT! Having said that if they are giving you a break then serve em the good whisky tumblers.

monty this seems strange to me

@BeerGuyRob, I made myself root for the Rams just to spite the Cowboys. You can do the same with the Chargers. Once the self-rationalization kicks in, you hardly even feel bad anymore!

litre_cola

Who is ready for Everton v Cherries. 3 commentists raise hands and the rest get their bloody mary’s/mimosas ready for day drinking.

theeWeeBabySeamus

/tWBS falls back to sleep.

I wish I had that luxury.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Condoms are cheap.

litre_cola

I have since been fixed. Was ok but the smoke coming from the nutsack region was a bit unnerving.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Hehehehehe

litre_cola

When I asked for the cone around my neck the dr thought I was weird. Then Mrs Cola walked me out of there on a leash. We showed them.
