I haven’t had much to squawk about as of late – there hasn’t exactly been a lot going on in Yankeeland these days – but I have been watching football. And yes, I’m still recovering from my Texas Longhorns’ National Championship Game debacle, where Colt McCoy getting injured in the first series of the game stymied my team’s chances. To see the Longhorns lose the game was hard to take.
I also watched some NFL games this weekend. I rooted for the Dallas Cowboys (!) to beat the insufferable Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen, and we’re stuck with his arrogance for at least another week.
And unlike Squawker Jon, who always mananges to take the side of whatever team is facing the Yankees and the Longhorns, I actually am very excited over the Jets. Congrats to Squawker Jon and all the Mets/Jets fans out there. That was one heck of a game their team played against the Chargers yesterday. And now the Sanchize, Cryin’ Ryan, and the rest of the Jets are just one game away from the Super Bowl!
Considering that they did beat the Indianapolis Colts once already this year, you can’t count the Jets out. (Yes, yes, I know that the Colts took Peyton Manning out early. But still!) It also warms my heart that the Jets are still playing, while Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and the New England Patriots are sitting at home.
And I find coach Rex Ryan endlessly entertaining, with his emotions and his theatrics. I like that he’s not one of the no-personality, cliche-filled coaches in the NFL. Here’s his postgame speech:
Anyhow, I’m not going to claim to be a diehard Jets fan. But I am rooting for the Jets to win it all this year. Especially if it’s against Brett Favre in the Super Bowl!
What do you think? Tell us about it!
