Well, that Wild Card weekend in the NFL is a perfect example of why gambling is called gambling. I mean, just look at the picks I made Friday in my blog post below....Yeah, oops. 1-3 on picks and 1-3 against the spread....Good thing I didn't put up any coin huh? Thing is, we could see another wild weekend coming up with another set of great matchups. Ravens-Steelers is the one I'm locked in on. To me, it's the best thing going in the NFL, even better than Jets-Pats.
Anyway, we've got a great show for you today. Brian Mitchell and John Feinstein will be in the house as always on Monday and we'll be breaking down the NFL playoffs with a particularly close look at the Ravens win in KC where I was overdosing on BBQ and on Peyton Manning's early exit from the playoffs. (Is Manning overrated? He's now 9-10 with seven one-and-dones. Think about that....)
Also, I'll chat with Brady Ackerman of ComcastSportsSoutheast. He'll be covering tonight's big Oregon-Auburn battle for the national championship. For the record, give me Auburn covering the 1 12 easily and the game going under the 73.....Also, we'll hit some NBA topics in leftovers and I'll hand out my game balls.
-Update: Check out this story: Wow! I guess we understand my C Weis is leaving KC for Florida now huh? Funny thing is, the Chiefs offense got worse, not better with Todd Haley calling plays in the second half yesterday. Pressure's on you now Haley.
Check it out at 5 with the replay at 11:30! Get involved as always at twitter.comwashpostlive. I'd love to hear you thoughts and opinions on any topic.....
