Summer 2017 is finally going away, thank God, and Lesser Footy wants to be a part of helping you forget. Won't you please just let it into your living room and/or recluse unabomber shack?
17th position (almost as shite as Everton!) West Ham host 5th place Spurs to kick everything off
I hope you enjoyed last week's hefty smorgasbord, but the pickings are way the fuck thinner this weekend, at least the Saturday portion. Onwards we go, nonetheless!
Palace and Soton open things up (7:30, NBCSN), with the former sporting a new manager after collecting ZERO points from the first four fixtures. Saints have
It's a fine slate of action, too. The footy gods want you warmed up for the real shit come Sunday afternoon. SO CLOSE!!
Start things off with Man City hosting the Redshite, with the winner laying claim to being top challenger to United (in the largely meaningless early going). There will
Better safe than sorry - may have used this title before, and the old brain ain't what it used to be in terms of creativity (and in all candor, never was very much to begin with). So many questions to be answered on this new, unfolding season, but as usual...all
The first mea culpa is a good one. I was really against what I saw as an overly sentimental, at best pointless, at worst poisonous, signing of boyhood Evertonian Wayne Rooney this summer. Yes, even on a free, with United kicking in around half his wages on the hush-hush. I
2016, the year of many unspeakable things, is dead. And with it NFL regulation time. As one can see, the conferences have neatly cleaved into intriguing/watchable (NFC) and abhorrent dumpster fire (AFC).
Let's get the bad shit out of the way first. The P*ts unsurprisingly whipped the "give
There are a smattering of Premiership games this morning, with Manure hosting 15th position Middlesbrough (10:00, NBCSN) getting feature treatment. Leicester/West Ham and Chelsea/Stoke are probably better options in the morning window, though. Consult your Extra Time listings.
But the big action (Euro-speaking) today is at Anfield, where the
Embrace the nothingness with these fine fixtures:
Pinstripe Bowl - Pitt vs. Northwestern (2:00, ESPN)
The Mildcats are going to honor alum Craig Sager with a helmet patch instead of a FOR REALS colour rush, which is beyond disappoint. Pitt will run a lot, and score and allow many scores, if
Holy crap, NFL Network's decision to turn a mild Christmas Sunday afternoon into Thursday Night magically transformed its usual fetid product, on a scale not unlike the virgin birth. After a lackluster first half that saw the Ratbirds dominate the balance of play (after Yinzburgh's opening drive) but trail
Does your College Bowl "Confidence Pool" count the "Heritage Bowl" between Grambling and NC Central? Mine fucking does. Raise your fists proudly and pretend like you had a fucking clue before you googled and googled until you found a sportsbook with odds on this sumbitch.
But first, we have
You can take the states of Meeeechigan and Ohio and use them exclusively for nuclear waste storage for all I care. Oh, and I guess to hold the collective ESPN commentator ejaculate.
Anyway, Burnley host Man City to kick your Saturday off. You can watch while pretending to have
Due to family bullshit, much of my coverage was radio, and my TAEKS are evens less informed than usual. Caveat emptor. Oh, and HAPPY DAY AFTER OVEREATING SHAME, EVERYBODY!!!
Crazy Eyez managed to go 31-37 and still stink up the field and single-handedly lose the game in Romonobyl-like fashion
