What you need to to know for office chat tomorrow morning:
The San Francisco 49ers overcame a 17-0 deficit to defeat the Atlanta Falcons 28-24 in the NFC Championship game.
Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots are getting under way for the AFC Championship.
Just explain to me how anyone can watch any game where the players wear helmets that keep you from seeing their faces??
This is actually quite helpful, OP. Thank you. I'm an attorney in a very large firm, and there is a young, good looking married process server/investigator who is constantly coming by my office to chat sports. We're about the same age. As I know nothing about sports, I just sit there while he talks, checking out his body, his clothes, the fit of said clothes, etc., so this will allow me to actually say something other than "uh huh" and "yeah."
Why do you want to see their faces when Lycra-wearing athletes are bending over for half the time on field.
Keep a laptop next to you if you want to see their faces.
I just can't bear all that starting and stopping. The only games I can watch are soccer and hockey.
But anyway, I have always prided myself in knowing nothing about sports and will continue to do so.
Please gawd let our Ravens win! It's the same AFC showdown from last year (Ravens vs Pats), and we lost by such a narrow margin. Ray Lewis, Joe Flacco and the boys'd better pull this one out!
Is Gronk not playing today? I should know, considering I intend to marry him some day...
I found out. He broke his arm AGAIN. The Pats need to give him some Vitamin D and calcium supplements.
R19 - he re-broke his foremarm. He is up in the Kraft booth.
Nope, Gronk is watching from up in the skybox
In the Niners' game, I saw a fair amount of the bouncing peen!!!
The new uniform pants are something you need to pay attention to. I saw on D-listed a few shots where players had their pants pulled off of their bare asses while being tackled! They look like they don't have enough elastic in them and will ride down in a heartbeat! I have seen several butt crack shots of players in the last three weeks! Makes football much more interesting!
Ha! Suck it, Brady, you loser!!
My Black and Purple Ravens boys are bringing it home! Superbowl Bound, Baby!!!!!
RAVENS! RAVENS! RAVENS!
E. A. Poe
Holy crap! Brother against brother!!!
What were the odds??
Does anybody know?
High Five, R26!
Major butt crack exposure when Lewis got down on his knees to thank the Lord.
Yes, help please. What has happened in football world? TIA xo
Not the OP but there are no games this weekend.
The San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens both won their playoff games last week and so qualified to meet each other [italic]next[/italic] week at the Superbowl, that game to decide the championship.
Somewhat football related but an ex -49er accidentally got outed today. Kwame Harris, who played for the San Francisco 49ers for 5 years ending in 2007, is facing domestic violence charges for beating up his boyfriend over soy sauce and underwear.
"The dispute started when Harris got upset at his friend, Dimitri Geier, for pouring soy sauce on a plate of rice.
According to the paper, which was citing a suit filed in San Mateo County Superior Court, the two argued for seven minutes after the soy sauce was poured, and Harris said he wasn't going to take Geier to the airport as he had said he would. When the two went to get Geier's belongings from Harris' car, Harris accused Geier of stealing his underwear and tried pulling the man's pants down.
Geier tried unsuccessfully to get away, and Harris shook Geier and punched his arms, the paper said. Harris is 6-foot-7 and 240 pounds and Geier is 6-1, 220 pounds. The paper said Geier allegedly struck Harris three times in the face, and then Harris punched Geier several times in the face.
Geier was taken to an emergency room, and had surgery to repair broken orbital bones and required a metal plate to fix the damage, the paper said. The Daily Journal said Geier has filed a civil suit against Harris for assault, battery, false imprisonment, negligence and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress. Harris could also face up to seven years in prison if convicted, Guidotti told the paper."
Harris was never out when he played for the 49er s and the Raiders
This is the first part of the article:
"The NFL has no current players and startlingly few ex-players who are known to be gay, but it appears ex-49ers and Raiders offensive tackle Kwame Harris, a former first-round pick, has involuntarily been added to the list as a result of the legal fallout from a fight at a restaurant.
According to the San Mateo Daily Journal, a dispute over soy sauce at Su Hong restaurant in Menlo Park, Calif. last Aug. 21, has landed the former NFL player in court after he assaulted his ex-boyfriend.
Chief deputy district attorney Karen Guidotti told the paper that Harris and the alleged victim had been in a romantic relationship but were not involved at the time of the incident.
