Rollin' Like Sisyphus

The Best Weekend In Professional Football, With Picks

Grizzled.

Grizzled.


I’ve been under the weather for a little while now, so this is going to just be a short post with my picks.
I’ve been doing okay this season with picks, but not stellar.
Out of all of the weeks in an NFL season, this is far and away my favorite — the Conference Championships.
Four teams with momentum colliding into each other for a berth in a Super Bowl, a game that is little more than pomp and anti-climax. With two weeks off, a party atmosphere and seven layers of hype, the game itself just usually isn’t worth the while.
But these two games are usually the best of the season.
At that rate, away we go.

I’ve Got Some Problems With You People, Plus Playoff Picks!
Well, not You People specifically, but You in broad strokes, kind of a little bit.
I still have that post I previously mentioned, I just haven’t had a chance to round it out.
Some other things are kind of hovering around in the back chambers, antagonizing in their own right, but I ain’t feeling it much either.
