    you don’t talk much but apparently that is vocal. You say a lot on the blog, but its all good, your Dad doesn’t edit it and its all worth aidreng.St George sure gets kicked in the butt often. We got two feet of snow from that storm but its melting slowly and we have runaway rock filled ditches all over so the snow melt doesn’t do this to us. I saw the mess/lost houses the last time. It was right across the road from where Grams was living. Lost 9 holes of the golf course right below her place.Models were pretty naked tho. Showed a lot of skin. How about some young surfers next time. I could enjoy that. You know six pak abs etc. Keep up the good work and be careful on that Harley.Mom

    Ravens vs Titans -3: teams resting their sertrtas in Week 17 prior to a playoff bye are 1-4 ATS. The Ravens are the hottest team in the playoffs and are my odds on pick to win it all.EARLY PREDICTION: RAVENS with the points, score Ravens 21-Titans 10 .under 35. Cardinals vs Panthers -10:Anquan Boldin may be out and the public is pounding the Cards; the Cards are clearly the worst team left in the playoffs, the question is can they cover the spread without Boldin? The public thinks so, i’m not so sure the wiseguys do.. Carolina is a physical team and another east coast nemesis. PREDICTION: CAROLINA covering over 48, score: Cardinals 14-Panthers 41. Eagles vs Giants -4: Andy Reid is 1-5-1 in contests decided by a TD or less this year, Going into the Meadowlands against a well rested team, well coached and with Jacob steamrolling, i like the G-men in this situation, now if they could only neutralize the rampaging Dawkins, i’ll sleep better at nites.PREDICTION: Giants cover .OVER 41, score: Eagles 21-Giants 28 Chargers vs Steelers -6: leanin with the Steelers, the Bolts only lost by one in the regular season, and that was when they were struggling and the Steelers were hot. But then again, the Steelers got robbed of a TD at the end, so the regular season game should’ve been an 8 point difference. PREDICTION: CHARGERS with the points score: Steelers 14-Chargers 21 and Under

    30 Years ago, Diana Ross had the hit “Upside Down” in 1980 and the NFL is that way right now!The League is no one’s right now but you do see some teams that are emerging with repcest like the Steelers and the Redskins. I like Alex’s pick of the Ravens over the Patriots because they have to show who they are against that Ray Lewis anchored defense. Getting Deion Branch back was a gesture to Brady to be content and not take all his fun away since Moss is gone. They have to show the world they aren’t mediocre and losing their touch in this type of game.
