Post Thanksgiving notes

Spent way too much this weekend after games and new clothes (my wife took me out for a few things while at the relatives.)

Finished up today by picking up the Godfather Blu-Ray set at Best Buy for $31 after the coupon in todays paper. Don’t know what issues Dan is having with in-store pickup…but my whole transaction was flawless. Also picked up All-pro Football for the 360 if people want to try and get a game of that in.

Also, Borders seems to be closing out their HD-DVD’s… which isn’t a big deal except for the fact that I ordered the first season of Battlestar Galactica, and both halves of season 6 of the Sopranos for $28.52 shipped.  We’ll see if it gets cancelled though…

Seriously though… done spending for the weekend.. maybe…

– The Packers game today was very disappointing, as they lost 35-31 giving up a late touchdown.  The thing about the game today was the fact that the kicking unit could not cover a kickoff to save their life… so when the Packers got a field goal late to put them up 31-28, I had no faith that they would be able to hold the Panthers to just 3 points.

They’re a 5-7 football team and I think it’s time that people around here stopped talking about playoffs.  2 games out with 4 to go… just not going to happen.

    Well Glen, the Pack still have SOME life. Especially since the Vikes won last night. The Vikes have to play Arizona, Atlanta, and the Giants this month. If the Vikes go 1-2 in those games (not implausible), and if the Pack goes 4-0 (beating 3 weak teams and Chicago), then all 3 of us in the NFC North are 9-7…and the Pack wins the division title tiebreaker of divisional record (5-1 versus 4-2 for Vikes and Bears).

    Pathetic, I know…but not quite in “needing a miracle” territory yet.

    There is just so much going wrong with the team that it seems silly to be hoping for other teams to play below .500 the rest of the way… even with their schedules.

    I know that if we beat the Bears, we’ll own the tiebreaker with them… but hoping for 2 or 3 losses, AND a 4 out of 4 for the Packers… just doesn’t seem plausible.

    I’ll keep watching though… I’m a fan… it’s what we do, right?

    Well, it is what a normal fan would do. If you are a Danfan (TM) then you watch until your team falls behind and then you turn off the TV in disgust…
