The NFL Wild Card Weekend takes precedence over Politics today as Moses discusses the Four Games but also the Prospect that maybe Debbie Wasserman-Schultz could be Hillary’s VP Candidate—TWO Hags, One Ticket!

WINTER SESSION 2015-16

BLOGPOST #1,877 AT THE AICP-END

Today, we discuss the NFL Wild Card Weekend
Oildale, CA, 01-11-2016 Monday: Politics is one of those things that seem to be the NUMBER ONE SPORT IN AMERICA what with constant debate, intrigue, the 24-hour news cycle, and constant man-on-the-street interviews and polling.  The two political parties go back and forth all the while doing battle within their ranks and I think both the GOP and the Democrat bigwigs fear that an upset will change things forever and perhaps force them into undiscovered territory.  Donald Trump has totally changed the entire election as far as the GOP leadership fears while Senator Bernie Sanders is doing far better than what the sycophant news media reports.  We know Debbie Wasserman-Schultz does NOT want Bernie to win the nomination (or anyone else for that matter meaning Governor Martin O’Malley) because HE will shake the Democrat Party up as well.  
I enjoy watching Football, it gives me the opportunity to drink as much booze as I wish and eat Foods my Wife will not let me eat otherwise…
This past weekend, however, has been the NFL Wildcard Weekend, what with eight teams battling to win four games in order to advance to the divisional round this upcoming weekend.  People picked their teams, bets passed back and forth between betters and bookies, and millions of television sets around the nation and perhaps the world tuned in to see the action. 
I know I was sitting before my TV set, swilling my schnapps out of my favorite drinking glass, surrounded by my family members, and eating foods my wife warned me not to eat but who knows I will eat them anyway.  As old as I am, what difference does it make if I drop dead tomorrow or in another 5-10 years, I do what I want, when I want, and no one tells me what to do…most of the time.  
The Kansas City Chiefs went into Houston, Texas, with the intent of winning…
The first game on Saturday, the one between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans went about what I expected it to do.  The battle-tested Chiefs, led by quarterback Alex Smith, went into that city and trounced the incapable Texans by a score of 30-0.  Texans’ quarterback Brian Hoyer did as well as he could but the Chiefs were having none of it. 
If any of you recall, back in 2013, the Chiefs had a major shootout with the Indianapolis Colts, whoever had the ball last would win the game, and the Colts won it by a score of 45-44.  Then for the Chiefs, they sat out the following season’s playoff round but this year have worked extremely hard to get to where they are and this week, they go to New England to face the Patriots—I think the Chiefs can win the game.
I see the New England Patriots as a very shaky team and with any luck; the Chiefs can make Tom Brady’s life extremely miserable.   I doubt the pretty boy, the ball deflator, and the man who hates suffering hits is going to suffer enough to knock him out of the game.  At least, that is what I hope will happen.  oustonHouston
The Steelers-Bengals Game turned into an even bigger mess than I expected…
The Saturday afternoon game was a mess almost from the start as the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals met for the third time this season.  Both teams were 1-1, having beaten one another on the opposite fields and the two hereditary enemies fired themselves up to go for the kill.  It was an ugly affair, no doubt about it, as penalties piled up and emotions between different knots of players erupted at various times.  The officials made it known that they would NOT tolerate any unsportsmanlike play and would ride roughshod on the players to impose THEIR will.  Sadly, they lost control of the game early on.     
Both Teams committed some
Pittsburgh managed to maintain control of the game although all they could do was to put field goals up on the board for 9 points plus one touchdown for just 6 points as they blew a two-point conversion attempt.  The Bengals, despite their seeming inability to get things going held them close enough to keep the score low at 15-0.  Then, a big game-changing event took place as Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier hammered Bengals running back, Gio Bernard, in a helmet-to-helmet collision that appeared to knock the running back OUT.  Yet, after the officials warned the teams that they would tolerate no negative actions, they failed to throw a flag on the hit and the crowd went white with rage.   This fired up the Bengals to begin playing much better and they began to take control of the game to the point of 15-10 point deficit for them.   
The Bengals were in a position to win their game; but…
The Bengals improved play put them in the position of winning the game when they knocked out Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, and the cart took him off the field all the while fans threw water bottles and other trash on him as the cart took him to the tunnel beneath the stadium.  The Bengals defense intercepted a throw from backup quarterback Landry Jones and were in a position that if they got another first down or two, they could run out the game clock and win their FIRST PLAYOFF VICTORY IN 25 YEARS! 
That is right; the last time they won was on January 06, 1991.  This appeared to be their game.  Unfortunately, on the next play, Bengals running back Jeremy Hill fumbled the ball, Roethlisberger came back, they got the ball down the field thanks to the Bengals beginning to fall apart, and the Steelers began to see things go in their favor.   A payback hit for the one by Ryan Shazier on Gio Burnett by Vontaze Burfict on the helmet of Steelers receiver Antonio Brown got the Steelers the yardage they needed to win the game and boy did they win it with a 35-yard field goal by kicker Chris Boswell. 
The game was over, the Bengals once again were the goats and the people of Cincinnati were lost in their tears. Back in 2013, San Diego knocked them out of the first round by a score of 27-10 and the next year, the Colts beat the Bengals by a score of 26-10.
Still, they can feel somewhat better because in the overall horrible department, the Oakland Raiders are even more pathetic with one exception: in 2002, the Raiders beat the New York Jets in the divisional round, beat the Tennessee Titans to win the AFC Conference title, but lost in the Super Bowl to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  However, only Oakland fans remember any of this BUT the Bengals lose every time they make it into the post season having done so in the 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2009, and 2005 seasons but did win the 1990 post season wild card game but lost to—guess who—the Los Angeles Raiders in the division round.  I suspect their city will be in suicide mode as were the Jews of Masada when the Romans threatened to overwhelm their fortress.
Like Charlie Brown, Lucy, and the football, the Bengals were the goats—again!
The first game on Sunday between the Minnesota Vikings and the lackluster Seattle Seahawks was a slow grind; the visitors could not get going on the icy cold Minnesota field.  However, the Vikings did not do much better and the game became a boring back-and-forth play, as each team tried to gain the advantage but only the home team managed to put two field goals up for 9-points. 
In the second half, it appeared the Seahawks were finally finding some sort of rhythm and managed to get one touchdown on the board and then a field goal.  Up by one point, they did their best to fend off the Vikings who had the ball with less than a minute to go and who put themselves into a position to win the game with a short field goal.  What could go wrong?  Their kicker, Blair Walsh, had already put nine points on the board so why not another three? 
The Seattle Seahawks have nothing of which, to be proud in their win over the Minnesota Vikings…
Walsh hooked the field goal attempt wide to the left with 22 seconds left in the game and the Seattle Seahawks exploded in joy, gratitude, and fingers pointed towards the heavens.  The Vikings left the field stunned in disbelief as to how their kicker could miss a short shot when he had hit the other three.  It was a Greek tragedy if ever there was one.  Everyone had expected the Seahawks to go into frigid Minnesota and to destroy the Vikings whom they had met several weeks earlier and blown out of the water as though it was adults playing kindergarteners.  From where I sit, I think of the first six teams to have met on the field of play, only the Chiefs EARNED their victory while the other two—Seattle and Pittsburgh—won through luck.
The final game between the Green Bay Packers and the Washington Redskins started slow but ended big…
The final game of the weekend, the one between the Washington Redskins and the visiting Green Bay Packers did not start well for the visitors.  Within a matter of minutes, Aaron Rodgers, quarterback of the Packers, suffered a sack in his end zone for a safety.  Based on the previous struggles of the Packers in the final games of the season, I thought the red-hot Skins were going to clobber them and move on into the playoffs yet as the game progressed, the Packers built their lead to 24-18 after being down most of the game.  Then, they made another touchdown and made a two-point conversion to go up 32-18.  At this point, the Skins and quarterback Kirk Cousins began making mistakes as they attempted to play catch-up in the dwindling time. 
In all, it was a good weekend for football and I look forward to this weekend.  The thing that blows my mind is that the Democrats are going to hold their NEXT debate on Sunday following the NFL—can that hag, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz not be any more transparent that SHE wants to give Hillary the nomination.  It is rather blatant.   
Maybe Hillary has cooed in her ear, telling her that she, Wasserman-Schultz will be her vice presidential pick.  What a God-awful pick that would be two hags, one ticket, one big disaster that the worst Republican— with the exception of Jeb, perhaps— could trample in the general election.  Please, let me know what you think about this or any other topic we shared today as well as the appointed commentator for today, Chef Itzi Nakamura has to say.  See you tomorrow, God willing.

  1. Moses talks football today, commenting on all four games of the past weekend. All of them were good to one extent or another but the Steelers-Bengals affair was almost a travesty of sports etiquette. There was so much unnecessary conduct in that game that it was almost painful to watch as Moses says. Then again, as our illustrious publisher says, he was so lit that much of it was tolerable. He does not believe the Steelers will be able to beat Denver this weekend nor does he think Seattle will go any farther. That is a shame because I am a Seahawks fan, which many of us here in Hawaii are. Please, join us today so you can join in the discussion and we will ‘talk story’ as we say here in the 50th state.
