What happened to the Eagles last night? Wow... I was expecting a very good defensive game, instead I watched the score balloon to 35-0 at the half. Is the Eagle team that bad or is this Hawks team for real? I honestly don't know what to make of it, but it definitely is looking more and more clear to get to the Super Bowl and represent the NFC, it's going through Seattle. If they slip up, Chicago of all teams, who would have thunk it? Would have HFA. Playing playoff football in Chicago in freezing temperatures is going to be very tough. Should be an interesting next few weeks.

I played a little more King Kong last night, before I knew it, the time was 12:30 in the morning, lol. I'm just passed the point where you control King Kong himself. I must say, that was a pretty damn cool stage.

I finally said F it, I've set up an appointment to see my doc today to see wtf is wrong with me. I've had this cold, sore throat, whatever you call it for almost 3 weeks now. I guess I should have went a lot sooner, but I honestly thought it would just go away, like it usually does. Oh well, guess we'll see what's up with that later today.

Oh man Steve, last night was BRUTAL for me. I was up by 17 in my FF league and the kid I was playing had the Seahawk D. They got him 35 friggen points!! Sucha heartbreaker. I backed into the playoffs in my leage after winning my first seven games, then losing my last six games. I'm gonna get smoked even though I snuck into the post season. And I definately don't think the Seahawks are for real, the NFC is just awful this year and they're schedule has been rather easy. This was suppose to be their biggest challenge at the start of the year, but obviously the Eagles are a shell of their former selves. The NFC playoffs should be very, very interesting this year.


In other news, I'll be getting my new Dell XPS 400 delievered today!! Just checked the UPS tracking and it's already out on the truck for delievery. I can't friggen wait, for five long years I've used a low model Dell for college and stuff and it's about time I get a halfway decent machine, w. DVD burner and all. . And I can finally get that gigantic 20lb monitor off my desk and replace it with a sleek, 17" flat screen. LOL, I think this year's Christmas is on December 6th for me.


Hope everyone's having a good day.

LOL, yea...The Hawks D prolly screwed up quite a few Fantasy Football maniacs. I'm 8-5 in my league, but I honestly don't think I have much of a chance, I had D-mac as my starting QB, now I have to rely on good ole' Brad Johnson, heh. At least my receivers are holding their own and if Foster can play like this passed Sunday, I might actually be ok. We'll see. I love fantasy sports.

NIIIIIIIIIIIICE! XPS is top of the line right? Very cool. What are you going to be doing mostly on it?

BTW, how is that basketball league goin? Ya dunk on someone yet?

XPS is pretty darn good, it was a grand for the package I got. I got the XP Media Center edition cause I use it mostly for...... media, obviously, haha.


The league(s) are going good. We won our first game in two leagues last week. I had around 20 in each of those games, we won by 15 and by 22.

The league in my town starts next Monday, which is the one I'm looking forward to the most since I know alot of the guys in it. They've all been waiting for me to come home from college so they can take their shots at me, LOL. I'll def have to come to play every night, which shouldn't be a problem for me.

And I've had 5 dunks so far in the two games, haha........hopefully that's good for now Steve!!

Ahhh cool. I've never played w/ XP Media Center, lemme know how it is when you've played around w/ it.

So you are in 3 leagues then? Good god bro! I'm guessing the one in town is the most competitive league?

5 dunks, nice! Make sure you teabag someone for me.

Are you guys running any sort of offense or just a run and gun Phoenix Suns style? heh.

Well I don't have much to say besides it is very, very cold outside. It's a balmy 0 degrees outside with a windchill of -11. I just got back from my morning class...I'm going back to my warm bed for a few hours.

It's -1 with windchill here. So I know the feeling. IT'S COLD!

Eagles looked awful last night, man, that was a pitiful performance. Anyone who had the Hawks D in fantasy world is happy this morning.

I love King Kong, I am not where I get to control Kong yet, but I have to be close, I just found that other guy who was lost and I'm assuming almost to where the demo level from the kiosk is. I keep wanting to shoot or beat Jack Black's head in though..

The snow is melting here. The roads were fine coming into work, shocker they closed every single school in the area, heh.

I have no idea how close I am to beating the game, but so far it's been a sleeper game for me. I didn't even think I'd buy it. Now I can't stop playing it, lol.

I too am sick Steve, it sucks. My daughter was awake half the night so now Iím dead tired too.

What is up with the Eagles, I know that they have no QB but it looked like they gave up after that second INT for a TD. I glad to see Brady won SI sportsman of the year, I think the Pats are going to surprise a few people in the play-offs.

Played a little NBA Live for the 360. That is one good looking game. Does anybody else feel that EA is using the 360 launch as tech demos for the PS3? I had to return my 360 wireless controller last night to Best Buy. I love there return desk, they didnít even ask what was wrong with the controller.

While Iím off to the couch for a while.

If you go to the beginning it tells you somewhere. I'm 17% complete. I unlocked the old movie mode which is really cool.

Haha, we actually run a nice lil motion type offense. Most teams play zone against us cause we're young and quick plus have good size, so we usually have a triangle working the two blocks and the foul line with rotations, flashes, etc. We work things inside-out mostly, it's great. Pound the ball inside for a high % shot in the paint or kick it out to the guards for a trey if the D collapses.

It's fun as hell to play with that team since they all know the game well and four of us played in college and everyone else played in HS. Everyone is very unselfish, even me!! Haha, well sometimes at least.

Yeah, my daughter is again under the weather too. I can't stand the winter time, only because she ALWAYS gets sick and it just lingers and lingers, no matter what the docs tell us to give her.

You can't count the Pats out until they bounced. They could be a dangerous team in the playoffs, but I'm just not feelin' that defense, Belechik has his hands full this year.

Live definitely looks good, but IMHO it plays horribly. After a few slider tweaks, I still can't enjoy the game. What was wrong w/ the controller?

well it is surely cold outside - not as bad as 0 though... i had to breathe a sigh of relief cause it only snowed an inch or two - which i deam a "non-shoveling" event & also that i wasnt called into work.. i cannot complain either that my landlords crank up the heat.. glad to hear some positive things for King Kong - i did ask for the game for xmas (xbox version though).. That is what i call a monday night football game? did philly realize they were to actually play? this week i took a bath in my FF league.. no TD passes from Brady, my one receiver gets a whole whopping 4 yards, & well we say what happened to the Eagles..
man.. the only time i could dunk a bball was on the fisher price set..hehe..

well now i have to prepare my room for my "couch" that is coming on Monday - early xmas present from the parents..

of course this is one i did not pick out, but apparently it was a display model - it is recliner (ALWAYS a plus in my book), but it is maroon - which will look a little off in my "yellow" apartment.. but have to say anything is better than the eyesores that pass for chairs in my pad..
