Football, anyone?

Nothing says football like Faith Hill in a black miniskirt and thigh-high boots!

As I write this the Go Bowl game is on TV, the highly anticipated contest between … uh, one college football team against, ahem, another college team.  This one is the 31st college bowl game since Dec. 18, and it isn’t the last – there are four more games, including the AT&T Cotton Bowl, the Bowl and the Kraft Bowl.

You think I’m making up this crap?  Check it out.

Before they play the national championship game (Monday night’s Citi BCS National Championship) there’s also the beginning of the NFL playoffs this Saturday.  Yeah!  Enough football for ya?  Certainly plenty of sponsors, thank you!

Here’s my advice.  Ice down some beer, get some snacks, turn on the TV and turn down the sound.  You can watch the football without some hairdo telling you what’s happening, can’t you?  Instead of hours of droning, you can play some music.  If you wish, you can play some football music.  Thank us later.

Texans must beat the Patriots this weekend for a shot at the playoffs - good luck, boys.

Now that Christmas has come and gone, you know what’s next – New Years?  No: it’s the Super Bowl.   It is time to start wondering who’s going to get into the elite circle of four teams that will participate first in the AFC and NFC championships, then the two that will advance to the big Super Bowl 44 in Miami on Feb. 7.  You gotta figure the Colts will be right in there for the AFC, so will the Chargers, the Bengals and the Patriots.  Over in the NFC the Saints, the Vikings, Eagles and Cardinals all look competitive.

There are a handful of teams holding slim dreams of making the playoffs, including our hometown Houston Texans.  In order for the Texans to make the playoffs all sorts of things need to happen, including a win over the Patriots this weekend, an attack on New York City by space aliens, Vince Lombardi coming back from the dead and possibly hell freezing over.  (Hey, it snowed in Houston a couple of weeks ago so the atmospheric conditions are certainly getting there.)
