Michael Vick (Wikimedia Commons)
It is time for me to bow. Dog owners may not like this. But Michael Vick is on a roll. He single handedly beat me in my fantasy football semi-finals yesterday, and left me completely shaking my head. Ok. I also hit my mitten against a post several times in the bar I was at yesterday.
The Eagles’ four touchdowns (three by Vick and one by DeSean Jackson who my fantasy opponent also had) in the final seven minutes and twenty-eight seconds was jaw dropping and a comeback of the ages. Philadelphia was down 31-10 midway through the fourth quarter and won 38-31. I would hate to be New York Giants punter Matt Dodge today. Dodge kicked to DeSean Jackson on the final play of the game in regulation time that led to the Eagles’ winning touchdown. I, like many, was yelling “kick the damn ball out of bounds.”
Sorry folks. I’m venting. The Eagles comeback is the sole reason I was eliminated from my fantasy football pool, and I am still in a very bad mood.
In happier news, I watched Canada win two bronze medals in bobsledding on the weekend. Lyndon Rush of Sylvan Lake won a bronze in the men’s 4-man competition and Helen Upperton of Calgary and Shelley-Ann Brown of Scarborough, Ontario won bronze in the women’s competition at Lake Placid, New York.
