Quote of the day
"A matchup that probably nobody wanted, but too bad. Here we come!" -- NY Jets coach Rex Ryan, on next weekend's Jets@Colts AFC Championship game
The NFL weekend was going according to plan, and then the 4th game came along. And while the Jets played well down the stretch, the most surprising aspect was the two missed field goals from 40 and 36 yards by Nate Kaeding. Inexplicable. You expect that sort of thing from Shaun Suisham. But not from Kaeding.
Only three Pickoff slates had all four games picked correctly. Of those, KelRena was the only one to double the Jets. More stunningly, check out the full season leader. Even with just three games to go, there are still at least a handful of slates that are within range of a championship. But I sure never saw this coming.
Today is national holiday - Martin Luther King Day - in the U.S., and the fantasy implication is that there are a bunch of afternoon NBA games. You can usually wait until early evening to set up your fantasy hoops rosters on a Monday. But thatíll be too late today.
Tomorrow (Tuesday), Iíll be driving my daughter back to college, so there will be no blurb. Youíre on your own. Let's be careful out there!

A Hill Street Blues reference from the 70s. Wonder how many readers will know that.|

That show was the forerunner for a lot of others that followed. Good catch. |

Better yet, I wonder how many readers will know that the show was from the 80s. (1981-1987)

Yeah, that was a looooong time ago. Even though it seems like yesterday. ;)
