Football Sunday

November 30, 2009

is coming to a close. Just watching the Vikings Bears game wrap up and here are some things that caught my eye.

Game I watched – I sorta watched the Eagles vs Redskins game but I’m not too invested in either team at all. What I really watched was old man Favre and the Vikings run over Chicago. Things don’t improve for Cutler and it didn’t help that Brett and all the offensive weapons were on a roll. I’d take Minnesota over Saints or Colts right now. I know I should have at least clicked over the SF game but they burned me last weeks so I didn’t get around to it. Good win though.

Other high notes – Titans won again. With a game winning TD from V. Young to K. Britt over Leinart and the Cardinals. With Kurt Warner out Young was given another chance to beat Matt. In college one of the biggest college football games Vince Young led the Texas Longhorns over Leinart’s Trojans. Matt Leinart also had beer bong pictures with hot chicks on TMZ. Chris Johnson is also awesome. He’s very bouncy and floaty in his movements and cuts.

San Diego kicked ass again today. I don’t know what it is but I just don’t like the Chargers. Maybe its the ridiculous Northern Southern Cali rivalry that northerners mostly made up. The Chargers remind me of the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA. Great players but never seem to really be a threat for the championship. I don’t like the Mavs much either. If either team wins it all this year, kudos to them.

Assassin’s Creed 2

Just beat assassin’s creed 2 yesterday. The story was fantastic. Really cool how they wove in real history all over the place. The graphics looked similar to the first but definitely better. The gameplay did have it tweeks and changes. Unfortunately it did get repetitive just like the first game. By the end I just wanted to see what happened in the story and finish the game. But I can be an impatient gamer. Lots to do and collect in the game if you like that.  I could go on more about AC1 and 2 but I’ll just leave it at – Decent to good game. Tackling Gears of War next in my fight against 360 achievements.

That’s all. Monday Night Football is gonna be good. Pats vs Saints. Make sure to catch it. If you stumble upon my blog feel free to comment on what you watched or caught you this Sunday. or anything an Assassin’s Creed 2


Happy (late) Thanksgiving!

Football

Football on Thanksgiving much like NBA on Christmas is a great holiday diversion. Watching the Lions vs Packers as I’m writing this. I mentioned the Lions victory briefly in my NFL Sunday post, I failed to mention the nice finish by Stafford. He had a game winning drive that ended in an injured non-throwing arm pass by Stafford for a TD. Also, Troy Aikman said he looks like a 16 year old. Too bad after as I was writing this he stunk the joint up.

FOX halftime crew is just better than the CBS one. Much more entertaining.

I wasn’t able to watch the Raiders upset the Bengals last week due to NFL black out rules. Arrr. Change it Goodell. Every other week I have to sit through a crappy losing bay area team then a team I want to see and I can’t. and it was a good game.

Kings

I started writing this on X-giving but I’m finishing it on Post Tgiving. The Kings are playing the Nets, 0-15. That’s 0-15. They close to tying the worse start which is currently 0-17.

Games -Uncharted 2

My crappy review. Game kicked ass. Best Gfx I’ve seen this gen hands down and ranks up in the all time good lists. I beat it somewhat relatively quickly, I can see how some can complain about that. I did power through it with my watching roommate on hand. Funny it was like the ps3 commercial.  Great acting. The scenes and acting were motion captured, had a hunch it was. Girls were hot. Ridiculous action. Lots of cursing. Killing 1000s of people. Good game.

NBA 2K10

I can’t resist sports games. They let ya do what you watch sports for. NBA 2k10 has a MyPlayer mode.  You start as a rookie in the NBA and attempt to have a long a fruitful NBA career. I was chosen by the Memphis Grizzlies. We were a decent team.  Often struggling to win having a record dipping under .500. Then Shaq the Diesel was traded to the Grizzles. Hah! Now were 6th in the West with about 15-20 games to go. I can only imagine Shaq daddy slinging out his trademark shaqology for Memphis. Good game.

Also just watched Jimmy the Greek from ESPN’s 30 for 30. The Len Bias episode was moving as with this one. Check em out. Ron Artest was in his boxers on Kimmel last week. I miss him . But the Kings are on the upside. Rockets are from him too. Dinner time. So till next time. Hope the Nets get a chance to tie that record.


NFL Sunday

November 23, 2009

Bengals, Kitna, and Carson.

Nothing like good football on Sunday. Today was pretty good. Nice surprise was the Cleveland vs Detroit game. Nothing like 2 crappy teams performing like its a playoff game between 2 actually good teams.  And I’ve warmed up to the Detroit Lions’ crappiness over the years. Its the Kitna connection. Kitna was the replacement QB for the injured Carson in the 2006 season playoff game. Carson Palmer was injured on the opening play and Kitna went on to lose with the Bengals. Since then Kitna had a short stint as starting QB with the Lions and is now backup for Tony Romo. Bengals didn’t too well their following seasons. They Bengals have a shot this season even with the bizarre loss today against the Oakland Raiders.

Raiders, Titans

Speaking of. The Oakland Raiders is a crazy franchise. So far this season they have strangely squeaked wins by Philly and now Cinnci. Another 3 win team  – Titans with Vince Young. Always thought he was a good player, he has Monday Night Footballs honors to continue to prove it this season. He faired much better in his NFL start than other newbie quarterbacks this year.

Viking Favre Peterson

This guy is old with some badass younguns with him. There are the constant jokes about the media and fans slurping him up but he’s such an easy sell. If I tell my non football fanatic friends hey there’s this 40 year old dood playing football and he’s damn good, they’re impressed. Add Peterson and everygame will be easy to entertain.Vikings of course had another great game thisweek against Seattle.

Steelers and Polamalu

Nice overtime win over Steelers by the KC Chiefs. I saw Troy Polamalu on Fallon some weeks ago (with January Jones, woo!) and he may be my new fave player. Too bad the Madden Curse persisted this year. till Next time.

Assassin’s Creed 2

Been playing this on 360 lately. Good decent game. The underlying engine hasn’t changed much. This really should have been how good the first game was. Nice addicting collection missions keep the game length going.  Good story and I feel Italian playing it.


First real post.

November 21, 2009

Hello again. This is officially my first official post.  I like sports.  Watching them specifically. Playing them too although I’m no good at all. Anyone can enjoy sports. Things that caught my attention today and yester-

NBA on TNT

Everyone loves these guys. I do too. Nice to see C-Webb as well. I’m a long time Kings fan. I remember during the years when the Kings were doing well  (ahem, Tim Donaghy) Charles would rip the Kings and say they’re too soft. Eh, sometimes he was probably right. Most of the time it drove me crazy because I thought the Kings had what it took to win. This Thursday I was watching NBA on TNT and was excited to hear Chuck says he likes Tyreke Evans and the job Paul Westphal is doing.  A small win for a struggling small market sports franchise.  At the time he said this, the Kings were 5-5. I just watched them go to 5-6, but I’m hopeful. It’s  about how you play or how you lose. Should always win. But at least I prefer not to watch you suck at losing. go kings

Hockey

Watching it on HD is awesome. All sports in HD are awesome.
