You might not have heard, but this lesser sport is having a game today. Football, not to be confused with the football played everywhere else on earth, a game where you actually use your feet. It is listed as a 6:30 ET start, but I’m sure that the real starting time will be at least half an hour after that.
I like NFL, mostly because I don’t have a team I cheer, after living and dying with the Jays, for 162 games (and, if lucky, playoffs), I really enjoy just watching and not caring who wins.
So today we have the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. Falcons have been winning big each week, I see something saying they have scored at least 33 points in each of their last six games. But then, the Patriots are the best at cheating. And, as you know, if you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying.
Anyway, give us your prediction for winner and score and anything else you care to predict.
I’ll go Falcons 38 Patriots 30. And I predict I turn the sound off on the half time show after about 45 seconds.
And, if you are watching the game and want to chat, we can use this as an open thread for the game.
