Before we hit-up my ATS Bowl and Hardwood selections, here are a few quick thoughts on yesterday’s NFL Action:

poor%20guy.jpg
What are the odds he's crying and wearing Wranglers today?

GRANDPA FAVRE
Yes, I’m hater and I'll admit it felt better than a China Town massage watching the Vicodin Vet throw pick after pick after pick to end the season and Mangini’s career as a New York Jet!

not%20yet.jpg
The sun hasn't set on McNabb or her just yet!

MY HOMEBOY DONOVAN MCNABB
While most say they were luckily, I’m just glad my preseason Super Bowl pick is still alive. BTW, I luv how no matter what playoff team an analyst discusses they give the proverbial:
“Nobody wants to play that team!”

Luv%20it%202.jpg
While I luv watching him lose...this dude needs a shrink!

JESSICA ROMO/TERRIBLE TO/MR. JONES
I laughed so hard I spilled my Shlitz Ice all over my Yellow Notepad of Sin when they panned to Jerry Jones looking like someone just told him his plastic surgeon died and had left his file open on his desk.

mirror%20chucky.jpg
Just like Grace Park here, instead of blaming one of your QBs, maybe Coach Johnny G should look in the mirror!

BYE, BYE, CHUCKY
While I’ve never been a hater of John Gruden, for some reason watching the utter demoralization on his face was more fun than the time I played Strip Wii Tennis with the Olsen Twins.

Greggy%20G%20again.jpg
As yours truly strolled the beach this summer, I wondered how bad my Chicago Bears would be!

FACE IT…DA BEARS ARE SHITTY
I don’t care that they almost made the playoffs. Watching their weekly performance was more painful than waking up to take a piss after drinking hot-damn and using a cheap-hat with spermicidal lube. From numerous moments of coaching stupidity, to a GM overpaying a LB with declining skills after back surgery (that already had a contract), which resulting in not having any money to sign even a competent WR, as a diehard Bears fans…I’m actually glad it’s OVA!

GREGGY G’S WINDY CITY TEASER WONDERLAND

Gabrielle%20Richens.jpg
With the shitty weather, what better way to spend the night than loungin at home and teasin' a few Chi-town teams!

NORTHWESTERN CATS (teased +19) vs MISSOURI TIGERS
CHICAGO BULLS (teased +9.5) @ NEW JERSEY NETS
***To skip to my NON-TEASER plays...TOUCH ME HERE

T%20Sutton.JPG
After missing plenty of time to injury, hopefully the layoff helps put a cherry on top of Tyrell's once promising career!

NORTHWESTERN CATS (teased +19) vs MISSOURI TIGERS
Entering the season, the Tigers had BCS dreams dancing in their head, but back-to-back losses in early October ended what was supposed to be a magical season. Fortunately, with the quality of the Big 12 teams, Mizzou still had an opportunity for a New Year’s Day Bowl Game with a home tilt against rival Kansas and a conference championship with Oklahoma still on their schedule. But like Grandpa Favre, Jessica Romo, & Chucky in Tampa Bay, the Tigers choked and are now playing in the Valero Alamo Bowl against Northwestern.

fun%20play.JPG
Just like our friend, NW has been playin' while havin' some fun!

On the flipside, (9-3) Northwestern couldn’t have been happier with their season & ended things even better with a victory at the Big House and against state rival Illinois. While the class of the Big Ten is nowhere near the top dogs in the Big 12, the Cats & Coach Pat Fitzgerald have started to built something special in Evanston. Led by Sr. QB. C.J. Bacher and the return of Sr. RB Tyrell Sutton following another season decimated by injuries, NW will be playing with the confidence & emotion needed to keep pace with the high-flying Tigers.

dania%20ramirez.jpg
If you paired Dania's legs with the Wildcats DE Corey Wootton's arms, you'd have a perfecct athletic specimen!

I know Coach Fitzgerald has nobody that can come close to handling WR Jeremy Maclin (95 rec, 1221 yrds, 12 TD), TE Chase Coffman (83 rec, 920 yrds, 10 TD), or contain the cocky QB Chase Daniel (4125 yrds, 37 TD, 15 INT), but with the momentum they’ve created and having a few more weeks to prepare, I expect a magical performance from the kids in purple. Led by 6-7 DE Corey Wootton (9 sacks), who does a wonderful job of getting his mitts-up on his pass rush, and the increased familiarity with the schemes 1st-year D-Coordinator Mike Hankwitz has brought in (last year he was Wisconsin’s D-Coord. before being a scapegoat), I guarantee the Cats force Daniel into a few turnovers (Btw, my guarantees work 60% of the time).

rachelle%20leah.jpg
Sit back, relax, and watch NW keep this somewhat close!

On offense for Northwestern, while Bacher missed a few games in the middle of the year, he looked extremely sharp closing out the season & has a bevy of veteran WRs that have been the snagging the pigskin for him for years (Sr. Eric Peterman, Sr. Ross Lane, & Sr. Rasheed Ward combined for 151 catches this year). Throw-in the probable return of SR. RB Ty Sutton (776 yrds, 5.0 avg, 6 TD & 30 receptions) from a wrist injury causing him to miss the final four games, I expect the Wildcats to put up some points on the nation’s 99th ranked D (117th against the pass). As for how many points…enough to cover more than two TDs, FG, and safety they need for this teaser!

Final Score: NORTHWESTERN 24 MISSOURI 34

A%20Gray.jpg
Mr. Aaron Gray finally has a match-up with a NBA frontcourt that won't exploit his athleticism!

CHICAGO BULLS (teased +9.5) @ NEW JERSEY NETS
I know the Bulls have looked worse than Courtney Love in a bikini of late, but tonight’s match-up with NJ might be exactly what the doctor ordered. Chicago’s lack of interior presence has enabled teams like the Clippers and Zach “Baby-fat” Randolph to wreak havoc for Vinny Del Scott Baio as they consistently dump the ball in and force his guard-oriented squad to double-down. But tonight, the Bulls will be treated to a similar style of play to their very own as the Nets basically let Devin Harris penetrate and dish on every play.

fire%20shot.jpg
Unlike our friend Grace, Brook's legs are much thicker!

While some will say rookie C Brook Lopez is developing into that type of low-post presence, Chicago actually has a decent match-up in the slow-footed, but efficient 7-footer Aaron Gray. Likewise at the point, Derek Rose is one of the few players that has the speed to keep up with a player like Devin Harris. Sure the Nets also have Mr. Vinsanity to utilize one-on-one, but I actually think the injury to a struggling Deng helps tonight as Coach Baio will be forced to play the lanky defensive specialist Thabo Sefolosha on the aging superstar.

Adriana%20Sklenarikova.jpg
Gordon could cover these cause he's too busy shooting!

Even though Ben Gordon might be the worst defensive player in the NBA, he’s quietly having a remarkable offensive season (21 ppg, 45 fg% 43-3pt%) and will not be isolated by anybody of importance tonight. Throw-in the improved play of T-Time running & jumping with Rose and more minutes for the always solid Nocioni, and I firmly believe this one to go down to the wire tonight!
NETS IN A BUZZER BEATER

WANT MY NON-TEASER SELECTIONS...TOUCH ME HERE!!!

Leeann.JPG
Just like our friend, the Warriors are able to cover one big. Unfortunetly tonight, they will be forced to cover two!

TORONTO RAPTORS (-1) @ GOLDEN ST. WARRIORS
My Warriors are an absolute joke! Stephen Jax is acting like he wants out of town a few weeks after GST stupidly signed him to a huge deal, the always injured Corey Maggette is…injured, Donnie Nelson is playing with the line-up like this its church league exhibition game, and reports now have the city and former teammates begging for Baron Davis to come home. On the Raptors side, while they also have been disappointing this season, they still have a legitimate chance to turn things around and will treat this like a must win. Throw-in the gradual development of Bosh & O’Neal looking more comfortable together combined with nobody down-low for the Warriors, and I expect an easy victory for Toronto…RAPTORS BY 6-10 POINTS

Josie.jpg
Just like Jose, the Magic have been flawless of late!

ORLANDO MAGIC (-2.5) @ DETROIT PISTONS
Nobody in the Association is playing better basketball than the Magic, not to mention, they seem to play with a chip on their shoulder on the road. During their current seven game win streak, Ron Jeremy’s crew has won by an average of 16 ppg. Throw-in the lack of a true center to stop Dwight tonight and the Magic’s desire to prove the Pistons are no-longer the Bad Boys in the East, and I see another easy victory in Mo-Town…PISTONS BY 6-10 POINTS

With our winnings tonight...

...maybe we should buy our friend Jenn a new jacket!
