Week #16: Let's go to the Playoffs !!!1!



Odds from www.vegasinsider.com. A gratuitous sports post.

My Patriots @Steelers. Monday, down in Miami Gardens, my Patriots had a chance to clinch the playoffs. Instead they got pummelled by those pesky fish. Both the Patriots offense and defense looked flat from the get-go, and the game shouldn't have been as close as the final score. Next up, unfinished business: clinch those damn playoffs. In tomorrow's morning games, the Patriots can clinch with a Browns win (0-13 +260), or a Ravens tie (7-6), or a Dolphins win (+150), or a Bills tie.

Otherwise, in the day game (and in a huge game for seeding if they've already clinched) they'll have to win or tie the best team in the AFC this season: the Steelers... and on the road. The series is tied 15-15. My Patriots are 5-2 @Hienz, including their first matchup last season... a 27-16 win on Oct 23rd. My Patriots are 4-1 in the playoffs, including their second matchup last season... a 36-17 win @Gillette in the Superb Owl Semifinals on Jan 22nd. New England is -150 (-3 pts).

Re: Flower, Cinnamon Stick, & Sabo


Sabo's Aztecs -vs- Army. Sabo's Aztecs finished their Mountain West season the day after Thanksgiving, with a decisive 10-2 Senior Day win over New Mexico. This means they've haven't played a game in over three weeks, and have only played two games in the last seven weeks. OTOH the Black Knights, one of four FBS independents, had only a one week bye after beating Navy 14-13... but they did have two weeks off before that. As a senior, this will be FBS rushing leader, and consensus All-American, Rashaad Penny's last pre-NFL game.

Sabo's Aztecs leads the series 2-0, sweeping an away/home series in 2011 and 2012. SDSU has never played in the Armed Forces Bowl. Army is 1-0, beating SMU 16-14 @SMU on 2010-12-30... while Amon Carter Stadium on the TCU campus of TCU was being substantially rebuilt. Army and SDSU are each 0-3 vs TCU at the old A.Carter. SDSU is -250 (-6˝ pts).

PST. Odds from www.vegasinsider.com. *No scab games. A gratuitous sports post.
-vs-: #12 @Mexico City; #17 Armed Forces Bowl @TCU, Ft.Worth TX.

Bills @my Patriots The second time was the charm, as my Patriots clinched the playoffs @Hienz on Sunday. Down by five at the 2-minute warning, Brady led an incredible drive to put the Pats up 3 with :56 left. But, it looked all for naught as Roethlisberger led the Steelers back on what seemed to be a 79 yard TD drive in two plays... but the final play was ruled incomplete setting the Steelers up at the Pat's 10. A deflected interception after a hasty snap at 0:05 decided the game.

Now it's all about the seeding. The Pats have clinched at least the #3 seed. The biggest bonus in US sports comes with clinching at least the #2 seed: the NFL playoff first round bye. To clinch that bye my Pats need a win in a morning game -and- a 49ers (4-10 +180 +4˝ pts) win in a day game. All the above on Xmas Eve, combined with a Texans (4-10 +320 +9˝) win on XMas day, would clinch the #1 seed.

Next: Bills @Gillette. The Patriots lead the series 70-43-1*, including pounding the Bills @Orchard Park three weeks ago. The Bills are 2-1 in their last three games @Gillette... and 2-14 overall. New England is -700 (-12 pts).

Buffalo Bills can't root against them, my condolences in advance MD. The Juice is loose perhaps a Super Bowl is in their future considering all the near misses in my book the bills are primed for glory.

Week #18: New Year's Eve Rivalry Bowl XLVII




I-II 1960Boston (2-0)NY Titans(2 venues)
III-XLVI 1961-2016@Oakland (23-19-1)San Diego(3 venues)
XLVI 2017-10-15New England 24-17@NY JetsMetlife Stadium
XLVII 2017-12-31NY Jets@New EnglandGillette Stadium

Hated Jets @my Patriots. Once again, the networkds decided to cram those damn LA teams down our tubes. So, all I can tell you about the New England game on Xmas Eve is this: it was tied with less than 1:00 left in the 3rd... then my Pats blew it out with 21 unanswered points. Net result in NFL week#16: the Patriots have now clinched at least the #2 seed... and that huge first-round bye. Next up: hopefully clinching the #1 seed. To do so they'll need to win =or= get a contemporaneous Browns (0-15 +400 +10˝ pts) win.

My Patriots are 68-60-1 vs NYC teams (inc 6-6 Giants). NYC teams are 5-14 @Gillette (inc 1-1 vs Giants). My Patriots are 3-0, and the Jets/Titans are 0-3, in Rivalry Bowls. For the first time since 1960, there will be two rivalry bowls in a single season. Back on Oct 15th, my Patriots beat the Jets in first ever Rivalry Bowl @Metlife Stadium... this will be the first ever Rivalry @Gillette. Go Patriots... beat those hated Jets !!!1!. New England is -1600 (-15˝ pts).

Holiday Bowl: Washington State (9-3) -vs- Michigan State (9-3) @Union. Yes, I do still have a dog. This morning, for the third consecutive year, Sabo & me went downtown to watch the Holiday Bowl Parade. Sabo s parades !!!1! There were no wiener dog races this year, and we watched the parade in front of the Midway instead of in front of the CAC. Unlike two seasons ago when Sabo was officially adopted by the Wisconsin band, or last season when he was officially adopted by the Minnesota band, Sabo wasn't asked to march with the bands. However, we did end up watching the parade with a whole gang of folks with the Spartan band ... so Sabo's backing Sparty tonight.

Washington State is repeating from last season, losing to Minnesota 12-17 last season... and are 1-2 all time in Holiday Bowls, and 1-3 @Union. Michigan State has never played in San Diego. MSU leads series 5-2, including a 21-23 loss back on 1977-9-17. Michigan State is -130 (-2 pts).

I didn't want to jinx you... but I was really relieved that the Bills lost yesterday. I agree with you, they really looked like a team on the rise at the end of the season. Also, my New Year resolution is to write up the pix I took of my dad's original KGB Chicken shirt for you.

As long as I'm here, and as the game is just about to start, here are our FBS Bowl picks...

Week #20: Titans @my Patriots. All my Patriot's playoff games will be House Divided Sabo Bowls. Why? Because I won my Yapping|Taunting rights by my team winning it's championship... but to retain those rights that team must repeat. I will lose my Yapping|Taunting rights if my Patriots do not repeat... however that would not give Sabo taunting|yapping rights over me. We start this playoff run with House Divided Sabo Bowl III.

My Patriots squished the hated Jets in Rivalry Bowl XLVII to set up this House Divided Sabo Bowl... and give themselves the #1 AFC seed. The Patriots are 7-1 vs Tennessee, and 10-3 vs Titans (inc 4-2 vs NY). The Titans are 0-4 @Gillette, The early line is New England is -1100 (-13 pts).

Re: Flower, Cinnamon Stick, & Sabo

The Buffalo "Super" Bills had their chances, pretty nasty slam the starting QB Tyrod took in the waning moments of the game and the backup even picked up a first on an improbable scramble.

Being from PA my heart with be rooting for either PHI or PIT but the N.E squad has my utmost respect and I do enjoy seeing them win if only because they seem to have so many haters.

Eagerly awaiting the KGB chicken write up and more Sabo adventures.

$ Playoffs. Not quite a gratuitous sports post.


Jaguars @my Patriots. In Sabo Bowl III, my Patriots trounced the Titans in a convincing manner. It wasn't as close as the 35-14 final indicates. I retained my yapping|taunting rights over Sabo for at least another eight days. Next up: Sabo Bowl 1000. Similar to last week, a ne victory retains my rights over Sabo until the Superb Owl... while a jc victory voids my rights, but doesn't grant Sabo any rights over me.

My Pats lead the series 10-1, including 3-1 in the playoffs. The Jaguars have never won @Gillette, going 0-5... including a 17-51 loss in the last meeting, back on 2015-9-27.
