boxing day means....................

1: the in-between part between christmas and new year's. 2: the terrorist shoppers hit the malls looking for "savings" although personally i think theyre wasting time in the malls. 3: the eventual removal of all the christmas stuff (and no movies to be made). the slow christmas removal in my room has commenced and will eventually end in january.

week 16 in nfl featuring playoff picture

with the dallas win last night and green bay losing, dallas has home field through out the nfc. the n.y. giants are in the playoffs with a win, pittsburgh got their division with cleveland losing. jacksonvil alos got in with a win today. minnesota is currently playing washington and can get in with a win. next week, tennessee will play in indianapolis while cleveland plays san francisco at home. a tennessee win and they are in. a tennessee loss and cleveland is in.

update: washington 32 minnesota 21. washington and minny sit at 8-7 records, and with new orleans back in it at 7-8, it means 1: a washington win and theyre in (based on washington beating minnesota) 2: a minny win and a washington loss and minny is in and 3: a new orleans win + a minny loss + a washington loss would put new orleans in (based on conference record, at the moment, washington and new orleans is 6-5 and minny is 6-6. washing ton is home to dallas, new orleans is in chicago and minnesota is at denver).

nfl playoff run in full swing

already 7 spots claimed already. pittsburgh can get one of the remaining 5 tonight by beating st. louis tonight. green bay, dallas, tampa bay, seattle, new england, indianapolis and san diego all won their divisions and are in. pittsburgh can get the last divion win with a win and a cleveland loss (pittsburgh won the two head to head games over cleveland). speaking of cleveland, they are in good shape for a spot. they can get in this weekend. jacksonville, ny giants and minnesota are in good shape to claim one. maybe this weekend, stay tuned.

update: pittsburgh wins 41-24. meaning a cleveland loss to cincinnati and the steelers win division. it also means a tennessee loss to the n.y. jets gives pittsburgh a playoff spot.

snow day of the nasty ass variety

nice day to stay home today. its been snowing and windy all day and highways around most of alberta have been brutal. travel is definitely not recommended. a good day to have a day off. i can imagine how bad the streets are.

the red green show on dvd

the 9th season of the red green show is coming out on february 26th. i already have seasons 7 and 8. the studio that is releasing them is planning at some point to release the other 12 seasons. that would be awesome since it was a funny show and it was made in canada. with segments like 'adventures with bill' and 'handymans corner' it was cool.

nice day to start december

yeah, by watching hockey night in canada. right now toronto leads pitsburgh 2-0. columbusw at calgary is the second game of the doubleheader. plus its cold outside. with enough snow on the residential streets, they could be packed enough for a little street hockey. no complaints.
