By now you may have read my picks for the games this weekend. When my wife heard I had picked Dallas to beat Philly she got that look in her eyes. You know the one. It was the “what a fool” look that married people know so well. Anyway, despite barely watching football and her inability to name more than a couple players on any team, she thinks she can do better than me picking the games…so let’s find out.
Bengals 36, Jets 14- “Jets suck. They don’t even have their stadium.”
Eagles 21, Cowboys 17 – “I feel like the Eagles have to get you into it before they get you big. If they lost this weekend it wouldn’t be enough of a let down.”
Patriots 28, Ravens 20 – “I’m really just picking the Patriots because my husband will be really upset if they lose.”
Packers 14, Cardinals 11 – “I just like the Packers’ colors. It’s a lovely yellow and green…I want to keep seeing that in the playoffs.”
Ok, I promise I’ll get back to sports and politics links tomorrow and give you the overdue “Candidate Tuesday.” But, for today, I HAD to show you this post and comment stream on flickr. Yay for my wife!!! And hey, Lindsey knitting so much gives me a lot of free time to focus on sports and politics. So really, my posting about this love of hers is totally appropriate for the blog!
