I really hate the Pats...

So first off, I'd like to thank loyal reader Bobinkle for sending me a text message with those exact words on it after the Pats ended Jacksonville's Cinderella run. I really do hate the Pats, and all of their ignorant, stupid-ass comments they left on our "Ten reasons to hate the 2007 Patriots" just dig it in even deeper.

I mean, come on guys, I realize we are a little jealous about how you win, but you did GET CAUGHT CHEATING...that makes you public enemy number one in everyone's eyes, and rightfully so. So go see a Dropkick Murphy's show, drink a Sam Adams and chill out. Our boys in Green Bay (coached by Greenfield's finest Mike McCarthy) will be there soon enough to knock that smug little smirk off your faces...

Now for something we in Pittsburgh actually care about - our Pittsburgh hockey Penguins. They may have lost to the Thrashers Saturday night, but they still got a point for sending it to ovetime and are right in the thick of things in the Eastern Conference.

We've been on a tear, with this being our only loss since before Christmas , and there's been one reason - Ty "Who?" Conklin...He's been a savior since Marc Andre went down, keeping us in games we have no reason being in. If he keeps playing as well as he is, he would have to merit some consideration for the starting job, which, could actually work out nicely because we could use Fluery as a trading chip and actually land a top notch winger. I realize I'm getting ahead of myself here, seeing as he's started something like 10 games this year, but he has really been impressive. He hasn't given up more then three goals in any of his starts, and he seems to work very well with our defensemen.

Cheers, Ty, keep up the good work, hopefully he gets the start Monday night against the Rangers...

Pitt beat Seton Hall Saturday, mostly because of great performances from Sam Young and Dejuan Blair. They combined for nearly 50 points, and totally outclassed the Pirates (ironic, isn't it...the team that plays horribly is called the Pirates...hahaha). It's still gonna be a tough run to March without Mike Cook and Levance Fields, but at least Pitt proved they can win the games they're supposed to win. Monday against the G-Town Hoyas will be the real test...

Duquesne lost a heartbreaker to Rhode Island (who is still ranked but not for long after my UD Flyers beat them earlier in the week) Sunday, but is still much more impressive then they were last year. Check out Duke's Court for all the coverage of Duquesne Hoops you could ever want...

Finally, it looks like the Conference Championships are set in the NFL - It's New England versus San Diego (insert Will Ferrell joke here) and Green Bay versus the Giants on the frozen tundra of Lambuea Field...My early pick is Green Bay versus New England, because there's no way the G-men and Eli go to Green Bay and win, and there's no way a Chargers team led by Billy "never been a starter" Volek can overtake the Patriots...just a fat Greenfielder's opinion, but one that I'm sure is shared by 95 percent of the free world right now...

Also, make sure you check out Mondesi's House, where your boys Snack and Diego are now "staff writers"...Our first post should be sometime this week (I would assume tomorrow so check it early and often)...We'll also be making some changes here as far as our colors and fonts go so it matches our new logo, to be unveiled very soon (maybe even tonight, so once again, check early and often)...

Until lata...
