I’m pumped about games today. I know, it’s almost 7:30PM EST, but thanks to my genius idea of DVR’ing the games and watching them back without all the commercials, sideline commentary and halftime shows means that I have no idea what has happened so far. Anyway, even though the Bears are still in it, I am pumped about the match-ups this week. Just like Al Michaels says on Madden, the Conference Championship games a lot of times ARE better than the Super Bowl. No better example of it than the Pats-Colts. I don’t care if people are sick of seeing the Patriots win in the playoffs. I don’t care if people are sick of seeing Manning blow it in the playoffs. It’s a great rivalry. You’ve got the offensive Juggernaut against the crafty and smart team that just knows how to win.
In other news, we went to Red Robin for dinner tonight. I haven’t had a burger in many many months. Very tasty, but my stomach is paying the price. On the bright side, Febreeze makes this citrus scented aerosol spray. It does wonders for getting rid of bathroom odors. On the down side, Red Robin has far too many TVs in their joint. Normally that is great, but when you’re trying to avoid watching the football game, it’s terrible. On the way out, I was looking down at the ground to avoid seeing anything, and they have a TV in the frickin’ floor!
