The Weekend in Sports: NFL Edition

So much football, so little time. As always it was a busy and exciting weekend for NFL action, so let's get to it.

The Weekend in Sports: College Football Edition

As Americans tried to ease the collective discomfort of its overly full stomach due to the annual gluttonous feast otherwise known as Thanksgiving, they also enjoyed another American pastime: Watching football. If your family is anything like mine, your Thanksgiving weekend went something like this: Eat, eat, watch football, eat, football, football, eat. Rest and repeat.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to the readers of The Sports Muse. Enjoy this time of family and food and take time out to count your blessings. And watch some football.

Today's lineup:

12:30 pm on CBS: 8-2 New England Patriots versus the 2-8 Detroit Lions.

I know it's terribly unlikely, but I like the Lions, there are rumblings of Tom Brady not playing due to soreness in his foot...Lions for a Thanksgiving upset? 

Hope they win: Detroit

4:05 pm on Fox: 7-3 New Orleans Saints versus the 3-7 Dallas Cowboys.

Blast from the Past: The Michael Vick Experience

Now that it seems okay to like Mike Vick again, I wanted to take us back to a happier, simpler time. A time when Vick's name alone wouldn't spark an intense debate. I speak of the wonderful Nike commercials known as the Michael Vick experience.

In my mind I would be an awesome football player (I know, don't start). But in reality I know that The Sports Muse on a football field would end up a lot like the guy in this commercial. Lots of screaming and sheer terror. But a girl can dream.  

Jerk of the Month: Tony Parker

Eva Longeria seems to be darned close to being the perfect woman. Great figure, beautiful, talented, smart, personable. Her already fabulous life seemed to get disgustingly more perfect when she married San Antonio Spurs basketball star Tony Parker. The wedding, by the way, took place in a castle. In France. And Tony speaks French. And is super tall and handsome Yeah. Perfection

Tyrone Biggums Joins the NFL

I miss Chappelle's Show. On a weekly, if not daily basis. The reruns are just as funny now as when they originally aired. And references to the show just don't get old. It was comic genius, and now it's gone.  I need a moment to get myself together.

Who can forget Tyrone Biggums, the loveable dancing crackhead on the show? Yes, he was skittish, but he never ceased to be entertaining. Especially his dance.

The Weekend in Sports: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

The Good: The Buffalo Bills finally got their first win of the season! My sports fandom at times is complicated by the fact that I have a tender heart. I generally give absolutely no thought or care to the Buffalo Bills, but hearing that they have no wins in week 7, then week 8, then week 9 of the NFL season--it made me feel sad for the team. And their fans. Today, the Bills eeked out a win over the Detroit Lions, scoring the W with a 14-12 win.

Tom Brady Actually Amused Me

Like many football fans, I can't stand Tom Brady. He is one of those people that I disliked the moment I saw him. He looks smug. Everything in life has been handed to him because he is handsome (to some) and can throw a football. And he knows it. It makes me ill. And honestly, who can stand him after hearing that the dickweed left Bridget Moynahan while she was pregnant? Hate him. He has a surprisingly unmanly voice.

Fashion Offense: Howard Eskin

The clock neared time for kick off. Anticipation in the stadium grew. Fans were eager to see the stars of the Philadelphia Eagles and the Indianapolis Colts teams take the field. Then this fool strolls across the grass in his big a** fur coat.

Yes, flamboyant Philadelphia sports reporter Howard Eskin. I never noticed it until now, but he looks EXACTLY like the king in the Burger King ads. This is not a compliment. That thing is creepy as hell.

Fashion Offense: Dwayne Wade

Yes, it's just a Halloween costume, but unlike Shaq, basketball star Dwayne Wade's get up does not get him out of a fashion offense citation. Wade dressed up as pop/acting/dancing superstar Justin Timberlake. No problem there--in fact, sounds like a great idea for a costume. Until you see where he went with it.
