Draw Play.

Also home of "Britished Logos" and regular comics, like Kyle Romo.

Crazy coincidence that the Chargers are playing the Bengals in Cincinnati in a rematch of the second coldest playoff game I ever saw, on the same day that the Packers are hosting a re-enactment of the coldest game I ever saw (the Ice Bowl), with conditions at Lambeau that may surpass the original.

So smart of the league to give the Packers game the 4:30 start instead of letting them play at what would have been midday Central Time.

Is Prestone still an NFL sponsorship partner?

I was worried for a while about my TV; it had this horrendous, noisy purple spot on it.

Then I realized it was just Shannon Sharpe.

Shannon Sharpe is one of many reasons I can't ever watch the network pregame shows.

Go Packers.

Wouldn't hurt to have the secondary and offensive line show up. (There you go!)

If not for Indy's huge comeback, every road team would have won their playoff games this weekend.

Somebody shoot Jarrett Bush for me.

He didn't actually play on the team obviously, but did manage a bit; his legacy is more tied to his tenure in the broadcast booth around here. He was the radio guy for pretty much all my life, and had fairly recently cut back to just doing day games and a sort of tag-team relationship with his broadcast partners.
