The Post Mortem

If digging the Lakers throwback shorts makes me gay, then call me Rock Hudson because those that was pretty cool. Of course, the Lakers jinxed themselves by going back to the clown pants shorts that are currently in vogue in the NBA. Come on, you guys couldn't nut up for one more half? You would be hard pressed to find anybody who didn't get a kick out of that.

Of course, the Celtics could have played along. No, not by wearing short shorts of their own. Rather, by signing a few white guys and putting them all on the floor.

THE PATRIOTS ARE PERFECT

Wow, that was more underwhelming that even my cynical mind would have believed. Going undefeated is a nice achievement, but the buildup was just too much. Not that you can blame the NFL Network. When more than 50 percent of your teams have nothing to play for on Sunday, you might as well focus in on a dominant team.

The argument is out there that we should enjoy the Patriots who are saving us from the mediocrity of parity. But the Patriots just reinforce parity because in order for true parity to exist, there needs to be one perfect team and one winless team -- which the Dolphins almost provided us with. Let's say we go back to the days were each division had three good teams battling for the conference championship. Like the Rams-Cowboys-Vikings trio in the 1970s. Or the Cowboys-49ers-Packers threesome in the 1990s. That was more enjoyable then watching the alleged greatest team of all-time get lit up by Eli Messiah.

  • The Chargers looked like they were performing their annual playoff pratfall a week early during the first half of their game with the Raiders. Way to build up the confidence, Hat.
  • Art Monk's candidacy for the Pro Football Hall of Fame took another hit when he was passed by Isaac Bruce on the all-time list. Sorry, Lil' Hater.
  • Anybody even working today?

AND FINALLY
The Kurt Warner Machine finished one touchdown shy of the Cardinals club record. And he didn't even start every game. The Cardinals should go back to the platoon next season, because it would work. If Matt Leinart isn't down with that, then maybe he should get familiar with sitting on the bench.

NFC Championship: Slurs @ Lambeau.
AFC Championship: Jags @ Hat!

No, that's not gay at all.

That's for bringing back the memory of Larry Bird running the floor at the Sports Arena in those short shorts. I'd never seen an NBA player with a cellulite ass before . . .

Happy New Year, Adam!

And . . . Go Bolts!

I'm fully looking forward to our playoff sleeper pre-season predictions, followed by a 7-9 season next year. 20 years of being an Arizona Cardinal fan demands yet another season of mediocrity!
