Me too, GO Detroit!veganrob said:Big game tomorrow. Should see some fireworks. Go Lions!
For a sec there I thought you meant the too-late game being Wash at Seattle... on Sunday. Then realized you meant the Raves, who I am pulling for also.Amsterhammer said:Sadly, the game I most want to see starts way too late for me, unless I find some sort of chemical assistance.
Todays' Thanksgiving Day predictions -
Packers at Lions
Fins at Cowboys
Niners at Ravens
The Fins are on a roll, plus I need them to pass us in the SFL stakes.
I've gone for the Ravens not because I'm convinced, but because they're my 'other' team. Hopeful prediction.
Packers - nuff said.
The mascot, maybe. The name, yes. It's by far the most offensive Native American themed name. I agree that most Native Americans don't mind, or are even proud that their heritage and history is celebrated in most sports teams, if not with true accuracy. And I have no problem with names like Chiefs, Braves, Warriors, even the Cleveland Indians who were at least a bit inspired by a former Native American player (Louis Sockalexis). But Washington definitely needs to change the name from "Redskins" to something else. They could easily do so, honoring Native Americans, and keep the logo. But the name really should go. To quote Frank DeFord:on3m@n@rmy said:The Redskins a racist mascot? My Native American friends don't seem to mind.
Your picks were the same as my picks were. The SF-Ravens game was a great game. Tough game, not sloppy like the other two games.Alpe d'Huez said:Packers at Lions:

Your sins must not have been too bad as your Wash team won. Grossman did sound bad though. I say "sound" as I had to listen to it on the radio as I slogged my way over the mountain passes.Amsterhammer said:For my sins, I found a good stream, so I'm watching two poor teams struggle in the Seattle rain. The hoster is 'Jay's STereo Feed', and he's clearly a local who refers to his team as the Seachickens when he does voice-overs during the commercials.
Way to go, Grossman.
I'm sorry. And to think, with such a beautiful day you could have been working on your tan drinking Karl Strauss on the veranda at the Hotel Del...Race Radio said:I was at the game today.....it was horrible. The only positive is more losses = better draft and Norv gone
No, I meant that the guy hosting the stream was a Seattle local! I was as gobsmacked as anyone at the Skin's fourth quarter revival. Remember that I tipped them to lose. Four wins kills us for the SFL stakes. Maybe we can still pick up one of the other promising youngsters because we really need a decent QB!on3m@n@rmy said:Your sins must not have been too bad as your Wash team won.

You mean you have a local Seachickens fan? I have used the Seachickens name too. And others. This week was the Seaturkeys. And on a grading scale (where C = cool, D = Damned, F = Fail or Flunkie) I have demoted the C-Hawks to the F-Hawks. But they are young and I'm optimistic for the next few years.
