NFL WEEKEND!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on January 9, 2021

I don’t need the Niners in the playoffs to be excited about this. Six playoff games this weekend? Giddyup. The entries continue to trickle in for the NFLBBB. Interestingly, several lurkers playing. I will update this thread once the Buffalo game starts with everyone’s guesses.

Without further ado, the contestants. Here’s the email I sent Katie time stamped to show I submitted my guesses first.

Rebecca: 274 colts, sea, bucs, tenn, bears, browns

Chi: 273: Bills, Sea, Bucs, Balt, Saints, Browns

MudMan: 282 Bills, rams, bucs, tenn, saints, Pitt

GH: 279 bills, sea, bucs, pitt, balt, Saints

MacDog: 306 bills, sea, bucs, balt, saints, Pitt

Unca Chuck 312: bills, bucs, saints, balt, pitt, Rams

Rachel: 286 Bills, sea, bucs, tenn, saints, Pitt

SportsDude: 317 bills, sea, bucs, tenn, saints, pitt

San Diggity Dawg: 268 Bills, Sea, Wash, Balt, Saints, Browns

The great DJ Loo: 284 colts, sea, bucs, tenn, saints, Pitt

bird dog: 279 Bills, Sea, Bucs, tenn, pitt, saints

unless I missed someone, that’s it. San Dawg subverted my angle of going low and getting everything below 271 by going 268. Goddamn you! lol. Sportsdude has everything over 317

12 players all playing for $120.

GH and birdog submitted the same # and at 285 Rachel and Loo would tie. Also, 272 would tie me and Chi. I think that’s it

    Looking forward to seeing exactly whose money I will be taking. 😉

    On MLBTR is story about Angels clubhouse guy who is suing them for firing him, etc. It’s long piece with 300 comments. But in main body of column is link to article by Ben Lindbergh for Ringer about use of substances on ball by pitchers. Bauer shows up a lot in this article, specifically over spikes in his spin rate as they relate to doctored substances. He even talks about researching different combos while at Driveline.
    Fantastic read, with general estimate being 70% of ML pitchers are doctoring ball, and that adding to spin rate is big assist to Ks and overall effectiveness…including to Mr. Bauer.

      At least they are not using flubber.

  4. djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:37 am

    I’ve been using KY jelly for years in medium pitch softball.
    Highly recommend!

    • unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 9:20 am

      Medium pitch softball?

      • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 9:42 am

        Yup!
        One league I even had the ump in my pocket…

      • willedav said, on January 9, 2021 at 9:52 am

        Think out here it’s called Modified.

  5. willedav said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:44 am

    whoa James Hardy dead of heart attack at 64. Played prominent role in USF b-ball from 1975 on with Cartwright Winford Boynes et al, brief NBA career with NO and Utah Jazz. Those USF teams were great.

    • willedav said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:51 am

      3 years USF went 74-16, including 29-2 1976-77. Also featured SF’s own Marlon Redmond of Balboa HS who spent few seasons as backup shooting G in NBA, and like Mr. Cartwright and Mr. Boynes, is still alive.

    • alleykat69 said, on January 9, 2021 at 9:43 am

      Damm I saw him play a couple times at USF’s tiny gym with Cartwright during the year they were undefeated late and looked like they were going to win it all! Great teams with plenty of talent! Real bummer we were the same age! Feels strange sitting in the stands back then at 19 and your watching 19 year old kids play and they were spectacular to see live..RIP James

  7. Flavor said, on January 9, 2021 at 10:33 am

    ok, thread updated with the contestants

  8. Irish Kevin said, on January 9, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Whoa, are the Colts going to upset the Bills? So far Rivers is playing very well

  9. pawliekokonuts said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    Go, Bills!!!! Josh Allen, wonderboy.

  10. pawliekokonuts said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    Hi, girls. Recovering well from Covid. Sure could’ve been way worse. Latest book: https://amzn.to/36UtTKC

    • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:49 pm

      Good, Pawlie.
      How were your symptoms?

  11. Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:27 pm

    • pawliekokonuts said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:49 pm

      blech

      • pawliekokonuts said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:50 pm

        ‘and me,’ Kiley
        where did you learn English?

      • Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:57 pm

        LinkedIn bio says he went to U. of Central Florida.

      • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 1:06 pm

        They teach grammar in college?

  12. alleykat69 said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:31 pm

    Diggs is the man!
    Too receiver along with Danvte Adams in football!
    Had him on my football fantasy team,he just lit 🔥 it up all year..
    Named my team Diggs in a Blanket..

  13. alleykat69 said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:37 pm

    Stupid call going for 2 there..

    • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:47 pm

      It’s favored by some dumb new analytic crap, I think..

  14. djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:52 pm

    Nice pass defense…

  15. alleykat69 said, on January 9, 2021 at 12:56 pm

    Colts won’t go away and this time got the 2 pointer to cut it to 3. Bills better get there shit together and score are atleast eat the clock up..

  16. Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    After one game, on pace for 306.

    • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 2:26 pm

      Mathdog…

  17. pawliekokonuts said, on January 9, 2021 at 1:24 pm

    BILLS. WNY.

  18. Flavor said, on January 9, 2021 at 1:37 pm

    Rivers arm strength (or lack there of) was really apparent on that final drive

  19. alleykat69 said, on January 9, 2021 at 1:55 pm

    He slings the ball 3/4 now and has loss velocity a lot like Brees.They should both retire,but in Rivers case still banging out kids (what’s he up too 9?) another year at 25 mil he will go for so he can pop number 10 out with his wife..
    Could see him going to another team though as Colts move on to Carson Wentz in a trade..

    • Bozo said, on January 9, 2021 at 4:19 pm

      Affeldt and his wife had a kid during each of the Giants championship years. When she said no mas, I knew we were doomed.

  20. unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 2:45 pm

    Totally forgot Goff was hurt. Oooops

    • Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 5:12 pm

      Ha, didn’t matter.

  21. unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 2:47 pm

    Wow. Wilson with a huge brain fart.

  22. djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 3:14 pm

    Rams unis look a lot like Chargers from a distance.
    The numbers look like they’re made out of leftover beach ball material…

  23. willedav said, on January 9, 2021 at 3:46 pm

    wow Rispoli with 3rd winner of day in Grade iii LaCanada Stakes at SA coming from off pace to win with Chilean import Sanenus.

    • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 3:54 pm

      Pronounced like my friend Lacognata…

  24. willedav said, on January 9, 2021 at 4:15 pm

    Rosario’s horse clips heels of horse in front of him and stumbles, and he tumbles off her taking bridle with him on #6 horse in Las Cienegas. yikes awful looking spill.
    Apparently both horse and rider OK yeow

    • Flavor said, on January 9, 2021 at 4:20 pm

      Tough part of the game. But you get used to it. By and large, the game is much safer than it was in the old days

      • willedav said, on January 9, 2021 at 4:36 pm

        Poor guy that’s twice already since he’s been out here at SA meet.

      • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 4:39 pm

        I’ve seen a few that I swore would keep me away from the track forever.
        Not gonna mention names, cause I wouldn’t want anyone you tubing ’em.
        Always went back eventually…

  25. willedav said, on January 9, 2021 at 4:46 pm

    What a play! Woods wide open in end zone TD Rams! F the m-fing Seachickens!

  26. Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 5:14 pm

    Through two games, on pace for 303.

    • Flavor said, on January 9, 2021 at 5:38 pm

      I like these updates keep em coming

      • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 6:10 pm

        Game 6 could be quite a thriller here…

    • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 6:40 pm

      Because 6 is a “perfect” number you are guaranteed to get whole number projections after games 1,2 and 3 which are the divisors of the number 6…

      • xoot said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:51 pm

        Same thing through the first two games of a four game set, right? And four’s not perfect. Has the perfection of perfect numbers ever been good for anything or has it been a pointless obsession lo these many years?

      • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:56 pm

        I was wrong, Xoot.
        Was hoping no one would notice…

      • xoot said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:06 pm

        Sorry.

  27. Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 5:16 pm

    Trivia: Last time Bucs won a playoff game and Washington won a home playoff game was by the same QB. Who is he?

    • Flavor said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:01 pm

      i had to look this one up. There is some Flap connection here, my man Lukie played golf with this dude once.

      • Flavor said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:02 pm

        Luke doesn’t post here but he lurks daily and I’ve known him since high school

  28. unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    Doug Williams?

    • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 6:45 pm

      I thought of him, Chuck, but Bucs won a SB long after he was gone…

  29. unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    Jeff Garcia?

    • Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:01 pm

      Good tries, but no.

  30. unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:26 pm

    Well they just said that TB hasn’t won a playoff game since their super bowl win so it’s got to be brad fucking Johnson

    • Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:32 pm

      Yes. I had a feeling they’d give it away at some point.

    • Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:45 pm

      Johnson was Washington QB in home playoff win vs. Lions in ’99.

      Fun fact: The opposing QBs in those games — Gannon for Raiders and Frerotte for Lions — also played for Washington.

  31. Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:35 pm

    Man, this Washington QB is playing his ass off.

  32. djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:41 pm

    Everyone in commercials is always doing something.
    From dancing around like an idiot to shitting in a talking carton for their doctor.
    So annoying.
    The best way to watch anything is on DVR if it were only practical….

  33. unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:48 pm

    Shitting in a box near getting a camera shoved up one’s ass.

  34. unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 7:49 pm

    Beats

  35. djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Dungy’s right.
    Washington dawdles back to the huddle while time ticks away…

  36. alleykat69 said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    Heineken sure has impressed, what a throw for the TD after going to get X-rays for a possible collarbone injury.
    Kid’s got the Rudy factor going..

    • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:22 pm

      JFK’s favorite beer…

  37. djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    Shoulda gone for 2 there!!

    • djloo27 said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:17 pm

      No, I’m wrong…

  38. unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Hell of a game here. Heineken is playing out of his mind

  39. alleykat69 said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    And unfortunately his Heineken went flat in the end..

  40. Macdog said, on January 9, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    We’re halfway there. Total points 155, on pace for 310.

  41. unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    My 312 is MONEY!!!

  42. unca_chuck said, on January 9, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Shit I might be low. I thought I’d be the highest but dude might take it.

  43. mrsprtdude said, on January 9, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Congrats Chuck! 1 more touchdown to hit it on the money. So close:(
    Great idea Craig. lets do it again next week!
    Chuck Post your venmo or address so we can pay up!

    • Flavor said, on January 10, 2021 at 6:27 am
