Week 2 NFL Journal

I thought it'd be fun to track my thoughts while flipping back and forth between all the early games this past Sunday:

12:15 p.m.: Walking home from church, noticed that Green Bay, one of my Eddie Utah IN THE MONEY Superpicks is up 21-0.

12:40 p.m.: So stoked. Had early church this morning and now looking forward to sitting on the couch and watching football for the next 8-10 hours.

12:42 p.m.: Notice the dancing robot “doin’ the bull dance, feelin' the flow. Workin' it, workin' it.” Mr. robot followed that up with the worm. Why? Why? Why?

12:45 p.m.: The Peyton Manning sourpuss face has appeared.

1:01 p.m.: I’m thinking now would be a good time to trade for Peyton Manning or Reggie Wayne.

1:02 p.m.: Just saw a score by Reggie Wayne. Curses!

1:04 p.m.: Three spontaneous laterals within 5 minutes?! This is what happens when you don’t let NFL players celebrate touchdowns.

1:20 p.m.: Vikings fan uses arrow to push Vinatieri field goal wide right.

1:22 p.m.: Dan Dierdorf points out that the fans don’t show Tavaris Jackson a lot of love when he misses an open receiver. Dan, if he didn’t do it about 10 times per game, maybe the fans would let up a little. That guy is not accurate. I don’t think his career as a starting quarterback will last any longer than three years.

1:29 p.m.: Chiefs Superpick is not looking good. Washington still alive. Detroit is worrying me.

1:37 p.m.: Not happy with Green Bay’s punter. Right through the wickets. Uggh.

1:51 p.m.: Really worried in Detroit. Tie game, pending extra point. I see a Green Bay two-point win.

1:57 p.m.: A dropped pass just cost me the Packers Superpick. Packers up two.

1:58 p.m.: Nevermind. Thank you Jon Kitna! Touchdown Packers, up 9. With 3:31 left in the game, let’s see if Rod Marinelli is smart enough to go for a field goal first, since they need two scores.

2:07 p.m.: Jon Kitna throws a pick-6!! I love that guy!!

2:09 p.m.: Jim Zorn is hugging people. Washington Superpick is in the books.

2:15 p.m.: The Forty-Niners can’t handle downing a punt on the one-yard-line. Doh! In spite of the Seahawks decimated receiving core, I like their chances.

2:18 p.m.: First play of the Seahawks second drive and they lose wide receiver number 5. Doesn’t look good. Are you kidding me?!

2:23 p.m.: Big play Babs picks up a blocked punt and runs it for a first down. Love that guy. He is so heads up.

2:37 p.m.: Guitarist Craig Terrell ends up with a fumble that bounced around and touched at least 5 Seahawks and scores a touchdown. His celebration? Air guitar, of course.

2:49 p.m.: J.T. O’Sullivan is getting a hole in the seat of his pants sewed up.

2:54 p.m.: Just learned that Seneca Wallace was hurt in warmups. What did we ever do to deserve this?
