Football picks and other random thoughts…

17 01 2008

You can check me off as one of the few that believes a banged up Charger team can limp into Foxboro and hand the Pats their first loss since 2006. Maybe that’s wishful thinking, but give me San Diego 31-28. I also really like the way Eli has looked the last few weeks. I don’t think the freezing cold or lack of Seinfeld can hold him down. Giants over the Packers 16-10. I know I know, two underdogs on the road. Gotta step out on a limb sometimes.

Don’t know if we have any Metallica fans here but if you haven’t heard their S&M Live CD yet you really should. Thinking about going with “For Whom the Bell Tolls” as a walkout song. Check it out and let me know what you think. Also, when is this writers strike going to end? I don’t know how much longer I can go without any new Office episodes.

The Offseason, Holidays, and Family

17 01 2008

This offseason has definitely been my most interesting so far. Trade rumors are something that kind of come with being a baseball player, but are somewhat of a double-edged sword. It’s nice that other teams think highly of me, but I’m very happy staying right here. 

I had the opportunity this winter to go back to California and spend the holidays with my family. Being away from everyone for 8 months of the year can take its toll so it was nice to just relax and get some home cooking. A late happy new year to everyone!
