Open Thread – 1/4/2010

Yesterday was a dismal day.  After a 6-0 start, my Broncos turned out to be the Denver Geldings after all, not just losing to the lowly Chiefs, but getting creamed.  As it turned out, it did not matter.  Their play of late has been so pathetic that they needed both to win, and either the Jets or the Ravens to lose in order to get into the playoffs.  Both won.


But this is not the last sore I’ll post this year.  They will play again in September.

Today’s Jig Zone puzzle took me 4:34.  To do it, Click Here.  How did you do?

Here’s your cartoon:

I stopped watching the Bears in about 1987. Once Ditka wasn't having shit fits every 15 minutes (sometimes without turning off his mike!), it got to be less entertaining, even when they were winning which was mostly never. When it started to get like when Bush talked on TV (with me wanting to throw something at the TV and saying "Jeez, I could play better than that asshole!"), I stopped watching. My blood pressure thanks me for it.

Lovey Smith is waayyyy too calm for me - he's like Obama. I don't trust people who are that calm - someday, there's gonna be a thermonuclear meltdown, and it ain't gonna be pretty.

Well, Lovey got our quarterback in exchange for Kyle Orton. :-(

I saw that Shanahan was fired last month - didn't know it. Because??

And Mike Keefe. Oh-mi-God. I was at The Denver Post when he first started. Very talented fellow.

Go BSU in the Fiesta Bowl.My youngest was there a few years. the GOOD Broncos :)

Lisa you're right, not the same without Ditka.

Ditka had some classic shit fits on the sidelines - there were more than a few times I thought he was gonna take some guy's head off on the sidelines. He'd be over there throwing crap around, screaming at whomever was close, yelling at the refs, etc. It was like the WWF of football. Lovey doesn't even yell or even look pissed off; takes all the fun out of a football game.

TomCat said...

Leslie, it was because the team was not winning.

Oso, how did they do?

Lisa, Ditka was a lot like you. ;-)
