Bonjour, some topics to chat about as we roll back into work/school mode:
(1) Time for the Conference Championship Games for the NFL:
New England at Denver: Denver starting at -5
San Francisco at Seattle: Seattle starting at -3.5
Time for Tom Brady to get another Super Bowl appearance, or will Manning fulfill the comeback from injury and season's expectations? Will Seattle's home-field matter, or will Colin Kaepernick's legend grow?
(2)...speaking of Seattle's "home-field advantage", Seattle apparently has banned NFC ticket sales to Californians. lol
(3) Turning to the NBA,
Brooklyn is now the #8 seed in the East...at a .405 winning percentage. At least they can say they'll have made the playoffs.
Orlando is 2.5 games from being the worst team in the NBA...and 5 games from being the 8th seed.
(4) A-Rod's ban was reduced to just 162 games.
