Not a great start to the playoffs but not terrible either. I got my best bet, almost got a sick backdoor cover from the awful Cardinals. But I got all four winners from my playoff predictions. baltimore +7 NEW ENGLAND I think the Patriots will win but I think Baltimore is a good enough playoff team to keep this close. indianapolis +7 DENVER I actually think the Colts are going to win this game and everyone is going to talk about the changing of the guard. SEATTLE -12 1/2 carolina I want to make this my best bet but I think the spread is just a little too large and the Panthers defense is just a little too good. BEST BET GREEN BAY -5 1/2 dallas The more people jump on Dallas's bandwagon (including Chris Christie) the more I think they are going to lose, and probably go down in flames while doing so. Last week: 2-2 (4 points) Season: 43-46 (38 points) Best Bets: 1-0 (8-10) Home Favorites: 1-1 (15-19) Home Underdogs: 0-0 (2-1) Road Favorites: 0-0 (12-12) Road Underdogs: 1-1 (14-14)

Former Syracuse running back Rob Konrad survived a boating accident by swimming 9 miles to shore. Somehow he fell out of the boat (he was fishing alone) and couldn't get back to it (it was on autopilot). He left at 10am and his friends noticed he was missing when he didn't show up for dinner so they contacted the Coast Guard which sent a helicopter to look for him. Police found him on the beach at 4:40am when he somehow contacted them. He was treated for hypothermia (he was in the water for 10-12 hours) and was released.

Sen. Barbara Boxer will not seek a new term when hers expires in 2016. This seems like a good time to bring up this famous clip: This has to be one of the pettiest, nastiest things any human being has ever done in such a public forum. "I worked so hard to get that title." Oh yeah bitch, he's a fuckin general in the Army. I'm pretty sure that was a harder title to attain. And by the way, in the military, ma'am is how you show respect for a female superior.

As most of you know, The Poops moved into a new house this summer, we actually bought it just a couple days after Mrs. Poop's birthday. Because we don't normally exchange big gifts, and we were spending a lot of money on the house, repairs, additional furnishings etc, I decided a gift heavy on sentiment, light on cost would be ideal. So I drew Mrs. Poop a picture of our new abode.

I did not like Stuart Scott. I met him once, he seemed like a nice guy but I didn't really know him. All I knew of him was his on-air persona, which I hated. I hated his ridiculous catchphrases and his jock-sniffing. And I almost never watched him. I didn't watch the ESPYs and although I knew he had cancer, I didn't realize how close to death he was. I was genuinely shocked and saddened by the news when I heard it. The more I read and saw about it, I do admire the way he handled his battle and I respect him as a man. And he was very nice and cool and funny when I met him during my Stump the Schwab appearance. But as a SportsCenter anchor he sucked.
