As you can see my ESPN colleagues... are still gutless--
Now, here is my run down on who I want... to win the whole ball of wax:
#1. While Denver is not really my cup of tea, I like Mile High Manning's... sense of humor.
What's not to.... like a?
#2. The constant "Brady, Brady, Brady!" kiss ass love rant by the media gets my goat... but it would make big's day.
Pleasing big is my number one priority... when my wife not horny.
#3 The Seahags are not the Deadskins... but they truly have the arrogant potential--
Hey, our poop smells... like fresh brewed Caffè Mocha Espresso with bittersweet mocha sauce. steamed milk, topped with sweetened whipped creamand with just a smokey hint of cinnamon!
#4 Even if Nancy Pelosi wasn't from San Fran... I'd still have plenty of seething hate for the Bozs from the Bay.
Niners! Niners! Niners... Niners!
Okay, y'all get your picks... in while there is still time to place a bet in Vegas.
The last NFL LIVE Thread you just had to rub it in that your show won an Emmy.... while "Futurama" and I were passed over again, again, and again for all those years--
Well, at The Golden Globes last Sunday night... I got some payback!
Amy got Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy while I got... Best Actor in a NFL LIVE Thread, Comedy - Drama - Musical.
"I never would have thought that I'd win Best Actor for a comedy... as I am not a comedian at all. Now, Bender, he is a great comedian. He is the All Time World Champion of Comedy and NFL LIVE Threads!"
Yes, I am... drinking heavily again--
But when you are around Bendy... you have to!
The evening was not all fun and games as Jennifer got really, really pissed at me... when she thought I was about to goose Taylor on the Red Carpet--
And I slipped off to use the facilities... and how was I to know?
That the sewage pipes... were broken!
At the Sci-Fi after hours party... Bill congratulated me on my win.
And you'd think I'd know not to play poker with dogs... and Wookies--
However Chewy did confirm he and Carrie Fisher had a torrid love affair... on the set of the first Star Wars.
But it cooled off after Chewy caught Carrie... screwing around with C3P0 behind his back--
Chewy also said they cut from the first film several scenes showing how he and Han Solo first got together... on a time travel mission.
And Chewy also has some inside dope on the new Star Wars: Episode VII that they would have a major new... villain.
He showed me a still from the opening scene with Han... and Leia.
And, Chewy added, they are going in a different direction... with a rebooted follow on to the Boba Fett character--
A new, young rebellious Jedi... character not afraid to be different--
And the Stormtroopers... are being updated for a more proactive feminine presence.
And I toast... George and the Disney people for this new direction!
Isn't it great, Rick... them putting gratuitous sex, violence and heavy drinking back into Science Fiction and Fantasy where it belongs?
Yes, if you like gratuitous sex, violence and heavy drinking... and I do like it--
Just so you know, Bendy, Statler... and I are all for it, too!
The whole Disney Family falling right in line as Snow White... and the Seven Dwarfs pull all nighters to keep their new film on schedule--
I may have new info on myself and Star Wars but for now, I am keeping it... on the QT--
So, I have no comment on the current posters... out there.
Sunday night I guarantee that Peyton Manning will (once again) be weeping into his pillow.
I love Manning and hate the Patriots and I will be rooting for the Broncos...BUT - I think you’re right and if I had to bet on the game I’d bet the Patriots. (depending on the spread) Do you know what the spread is and who is favored? I’d probably handicap the teams as equal and give the home team the traditional three point home field advantage.
Whiners over the Seahags.
Patriots over the Dolts.
Well, are you fer him... or agin' him?
We all know... there is no in between--
“Whiners over the Seahags.
Patriots over the Dolts.”
Patriots over the Piled High Ponies.
Sorry bout that, Chief!
The odds makers are saying the 49ers over the Seahawks by 3.5 points.
Sep 15: Seahawks 29, 49ers 3 (game held in SEA)
Dec 8: 49ers 19, Seahawks 17 (game held in SFO)
Total those numbers up and you have
Seahawks 46 and the 49ers 22.
With the upcoming game being played in SEA why are the odds makers favoring the 49ers?
Oddsmakers favor the side that has the most money bet on the outcome, not who they believe will win (or cover the spread).
If the odds favor the 49ers, that means there is more money supporting the 49ers than is supporting the Seahawks.
Vegas books come out with an "outlaw line" a few days before the release the offical line for the first time. They allow a few of their best customers, smartest gamblers, to bet the line...it show them if the're way off..and they adjust it accordingly..
Seattle didn't finish the regular season well..true, they had nothing to play for..but the 49er's really look hot..and Kapernick's viewed as a Brady+ Manning with a great set of wheels..
Another reason for the Seahawks to win.
Pete Carroll doesn’t need to win anything.
DEN & SEA are favorites
1/19 3:00 ET At Denver -4.5 New England
1/19 6:30 ET At Seattle -3.5 San Francisco
Thanks for clearing that up. I was reading it wrong!
I’m officially calling it for both home dogs.
