Crash and Burn!!!

There was more and there will be even more football playoff action, but! The New England Patriots with a healthy Tom Brady, Just Crashed and Burned. It was pathetic. Baltimore jumped to a 24 - 0 lead by the beginning of the 2nd QUARTER! New England never made up the 24. 2 int and 1 fumble, a team record, NE never had an answer for the Run happy Ravens. I don't know what to say, I never thought the Ravens got where they were by being good, but they sure made the Patriots look bad. I, of course, hope my Chargers get it done this year. They haven't looked this good in a long time. They have experience, they have talent, the coach is committed the Quarterback, Phillip Rivers, is one of the best in the NFL and there is no back stage drama as there was with Spanos and Shannahan. LT is doing great and seems to have no problem sharing the running duties for the younger Sproles. Everybody is looking healthy too. Now, no matter how they do, I just want to give a raspberry to the great Jerry Rice, who said "I have never played for a worst coach all the way back to pee-wee" Norv Turner has won more game than any coach in Charger history. That includes Don Coryell (everybody stands, hands over their hearts and say "Don Coryell"). AFC champs again, one and done two years, two and out last year, this year, Bye week and home field advantage. We'll just see. Cowboys? Packers? Vikings? Just don't bring on Walsh, Montana and SF. But this year that is San Diego or New Orleans.

But that's how I feel.

Here It Comes

The new year begins. It's been cold. It should get up to 2 above today (warm). Back to working full weeks.

I got approved for the Venezuela team at church. We send a team down twice a year for a couple of weeks. I've never been before.

"My" Chargers won their last game of the season. It was not important at all since they had already clinced the AFC west title , 1st round bye and home field advantage.. The first string players got pulled pretty early in the game but they were only playing Washington. The Redskins were trying desperatly trying to win number 5.

Had dinner New Years Eve with the Herman's and Gleason's. At the Ranch. Very nice night.

So, we're off to a good start.
