Mega Conga Rats!
The Detroit Lions are now 0-16 in the NFL -- the Perfect Season. Makes me laugh. And after playing home games in a pansy indoor stadium, they got to finish in Lambeau Field in Green Bay WI. Yay for irony.
Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the game. Somewhere between 10:30am, when we checked the weather and 1pm, when we went to turn on the game, the cable went out.
Mrs. Dr. Phil was on her laptop, so found the Packers' site -- and then when I asked about Chicago, she found I think it was NFL.com. Which turns out to have a pretty nice banner of scores on the top of their homepage, updating every few seconds. Gives score, quarter, time, possession and blinks red when a team is in the red zone. Sure we could've found a radio station or even found an antenna and tried to pull in a signal, but this was blissfully quiet and quietly amusing.
Unfortunately Chicago lost and even without Minnesota winning, that pretty much knocked down Da Bears' playoff long shot hopes. Oh well. C'est la vie. (La vie!) (grin)
And The Big Ten?
And the 2008-9 Big 10 attempt to win bowl games begins... and the conference is 0-1 to start. Ah, but my mighty Wildcats are up next. Go you, Northwestern!
