Well… our new Trump overlord was sworn in as the nation’s 45th president on Friday.
Wanna bet that he will tweet something about the teams that will lose today?
Hey! I got an idea!
Someone should ask Trump how those New Jersey Generals are doing
I guess we will get on with the business of picking games for Conference Championship Sunday.
My 2-2 record last week brings my record for the playoffs to 5-3.
Remember the kickoff times are MOUNTAIN time so adjust the clocks accordingly.

On ABC’s This Week, incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus said that Republicans never questioned the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency. It was a statement made to counter what Congressman and Civil Rights Icon John Lewis said about Trump’s presidency in an interview on “Meet The Press”.
Lewis’ claims about Trump being an illegitimate president is based on that the incoming president lost the national popular vote by 3 million votes and only won several key states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida, and North Carolina by a total of 100K votes. It is also based on intelligence reports stating that the Russian government orchestrated a coordinated effort to try to influence the recent presidential election by disseminating inflammatory stories and an e-mail hacking operation in order to discredit Hillary Clinton.
But back to Mr. Preibus’s claim that Republicans never questioned Obama’s legitimacy to office, I wonder if he has ever heard of Google.
This is what I found

3-1 in the Wild Card is not a bad start to the playoffs. Four teams advance to take on the teams that were on first-round byes. Two more teams will be eliminated this weekend while two will advance to the next round.
Who will it be?
A common theme that surrounds these four games is that they are all rematches from regular season games. Only one is taking place at the same location as the first game; the Texans at Patriots game is happening in Foxboro as it was when they played in Week 4.

(sets them on fire)
After another long regular season the playoffs are upon us.
Here is how I see the playoffs shaping up
It was another hard-fought season and though it did not produce the outcome I desired, I extend my congratulations to my worthy opponent and most importantly good friend Ms. Monica Roberts.
The playoffs are upon us and our favorite teams – me with my Cowboys and her with her Texans – have qualified for the playoffs. We will root for them with the hopes of them making it to and winning the Super Bowl.
