  1. 2017 NFL Season

    This week ooooon The Big Dumb Ugly Chase for the Big Dumb Ugly AFC South Big Dumb Ugly Crowntm! - Titans do it again! They beat someone they're supposed to beat! Back-to-back weeks! AND it's by double-digits this time! That's worth excessive exclamations to me! - Still hoping the Jags Jag and stumble and somehow the Titans don't blow it down the stretch. Holding that tiebreaker is sweet, but I still don't feel confident about a week 17 winner-take-all scenario. - The gulf has never been clearer: TEN 8-4 JAX 8-4 HOU 4-8 IND 3-9. The once perennial division winners wade in dead last, and the old basement dwellers vie for first. "The first ones nooow will later be laaaast, oh the tiiimes they aaare a chaaangin'"

    Titans beat someone they're supposed to beat and pull up to 7-4, AND Jacksonville loses to Arizona! Reeeeally hope the Jags stumble down the stretch and Tennessee can sweep the South or at least go 5-1 in-division and hold onto the tiebreaker because my faith in their ability to step up and win a winner-take-all Week 17 game versus Jacksonville if it gets down to that is, well, not very strong. But hey, I'm taking it one week at a time on the 2017 Big Dumb Ugly Chase for the Big Dumb Ugly AFC South Big Dumb Ugly Crowntm. Titan up! Funfact: this is the first time since 2008, their last AFC South title and playoff appearance, that Tennessee has swept a divisional rival. That's a nice development!

    Close one, but Titans eek out a win over Baltimore. Glad to take 5-3 and 1st in the AFC South at the halfway mark. AND the Texans choked out to the Colts to boot. If the winner of the South at this point is whoever manages to spill the least of their spaghetti and hobble over the finish line in a vomit-stained stupor, Tennessee's chances are not looking all that bad!

    Yep, today was the last nail in the coffin I'm sure. Or should I say, brick (by brick) in the...wall. I dunno. Should be for the best for Tennessee, but this is Tennessee so hey. What's the difference between Tennessee football and toilet water? At least toilet water knows how to make it over the top after enough crap.

    Classic Vols, having to play from behind and bank on miraculous breaks that sometimes happen in a game they should on paper win solidly. Impressive comeback/2OT thriller or not this team doesn't deserved ranked status. At least they won. I'm expecting another year of getting stomped by Alabama (again), probably lose to Florida (last year was a fluke), inexplicably lose to Vanderbilt in the last week of the season (again, because Vols), finish second in the East (again), and win a middle-of-the-pack Sponsor Bowl game (again). Yawn. How many years are we gonna get of underachieving in the most frustrating but predictable ways possible? At some point it's better to just suck and not have to worry about inevitable disappointment. Go Vols, I guess.
  6. Boy has 2017 sports wise just been a bummer or what? The Patriots make a ridiculous comeback against a ringless team for their fifth title, Warriors-Cavs round three (three) is likely ending up being a lopsided dud, and a thrilling NHL playoffs with so many new teams and surprise runs ends with.....(drum rolls)...the Penguins. Again. Beating a ringless team in their first appearance. Again. As the away team. Again. Whoa boy. And all of it ending on a sour officiating note, no less. I'm glad my intensity for sports hardly exists much these days cause there wouldn't be much of a point to being intense with it with outcomes like this, y'know?
  7. Not only does this shellacking give Nashville brand new life, it guarantees I'll be able to catch at least game 5 at Bonnaroo on Thursday. Gonna be lots of yellow this year
  8. It sucks that I'm going to be experiencing a hometown team losing a championship up close and personal for the first time in my life, but it wouldn't suck as much had it been seriously anybody else in the Eastern Conference. Ottawa, Washington, Columbus, heck even losing to the Rangers or Habs or Bruins wouldn't be as much of a soul-sucker. What a depressing way for such a colorful playoff season to end. It's historic that they're going back to back, whatever, but why did it have to happen to two cupless teams who waited 2 decades for their first appearance back to back man?
  9. What a great bounce-back. Even if they don't complete the comeback this kind of an effort is a lot easier to bounce back from in a game 2 than a 3-0 smashing, really brings that 1st period called back goal into even more question. There's life in them there Preds!
  10. But what if both teams are underdog types? Not exactly sure many people would've foreseen an Ottawa-Nashville series. I'm generally a defeatist with my sports teams anyway so I like finding scenarios that cushion the disappointment and I find one team that's never won a title losing to another one that's never won is better than a team that's never won losing to a team with multiple titles playing for a repeat.
  11. I don't think I'd be as disappointed if they were getting pounded 3-0 by Ottawa. Being a Canadian team's first franchise championship punching bag wouldn't be quite as disappointing. But Pittsburgh's? Sure don't feel good captain. I just hope they make this a series while there's still time to make it one. And who knows, we live in a world where the Cubs are defending World champions and Cleveland is about to play to defend a championship title, both teams coming back from 3-1 deficits, and Nashville is neither cursed by a goat nor the city of Cleveland. Why not a turnaround for them?
  12. Why would the Bettman era NHL rig it for a team like the Penguins when they're playing a sunbelt warm climate expansion team? Would robbing the Preds really #GrowtheGame?
  13. The Pens will win and crush another cupless team's first appearance dreams, we're getting Cavs-Warriors III, there is no color or divergence allowed silly!
