**Posted by Phineas You’re the Governor of Massachusetts. Islamic terrorists have just blown up a major sporting sporting event in your state’s capital city, killing several and wounding hundreds.  Boston is on lock-down, the police have done everything except declare martial law, and the terrorists are on the loose. No one knows where they are […]

**Posted by Phineas National debt approaching $17 trillion? North Korean nukes and the threat of war on the peninsula? America’s credit rating? Nah, it’s March Madness, baby! And Barack Obama, President of the United States, tweeted this morning to remind everyone to get in on the fun: Finish your bracket: It’s time for #MarchMadness. twitter.com/BarackObama/st… […]

Well, who are y’all rooting for? Its the 49ers all the way for me, and hoping for a good game rather than a blowout. Settling down with the family, including Muffie T., and about to dig into the snacks. Enjoy the game! And be safe if you’re out celebrating.

I’m about grab some lunch and then kick back and be lazy on the recliner with la familia and enjoy an afternoon of playoff football.  I’ve got the 49ers and Patriots going to the Super Bowl, but I’m not the best when it comes to football predictions so take my prognostications with a grain of […]

 

NFL playoffs weekend open thread

Posted by: ST on January 12, 2013 at 1:15 pm » 8 Comments

Yeehaw! Are you ready for some football? All playoff games for this weekend promise to be good ones, maybe even nailbiters – which makes them even more worth watching. As much as I adore Packers cuties Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews, my heart belongs to the 49ers – the team I have loved since moving […]

The Panthers (6-9) are going to try and finish out their mostly dismal season on a positive note by going 4-0 down the homestretch with what they hope will be a victory over the New Orleans Saints this afternoon in an away game.

The Panthers (5-9) are all set to play their last home game of the season, and today they’ll be taking on the Oakland Raiders (4-10) on a mild day here in Charlotte – 50 degrees as I type this. Should get up to 57, which feels more like fall football weather than winter weather. Nice. […]

The Carolina Panthers (4-9) are coming off a very exciting home win last week against their division rivals the Falcons and are hoping to create a “win streak” of sorts down the final stretch of the season as they take on the San Diego Chargers (5-8) today in an away game. I myself was so […]

 

Sunday Football Open Thread: Falcons at the #Panthers

Posted by: ST on December 9, 2012 at 12:38 pm » 1 Comment

The Panthers play the Falcons today here in Charlotte in hopes of avenging their heartbreaking loss from Week 4 where they let a lead slip away in the final few minutes of the game. If memory serves me correctly, the Cats played well in that game until the final 2 or 3 minutes. Then again, […]

**Posted by Phineas By now most everyone has heard of the terrible events of last Saturday, when Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher murdered his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, who was also the mother of his child, and then killed himself at the Chiefs’ facility. There are many ways to deal appropriately with such a monstrous […]
