The Giants and the Raiders are both on television tonight. One game starts at 5:30 and the other one at 7:15 pm. The Giants are in playoff contention and this is the Raiders’ home opener against division foe San Diego.
I guess I should pray that the Giants don’t go to extra innings.
Y’all keep it down during the games.
Ravens are beating the Bungles 17-3
17-10 just before halftime.
AND they beat the Bengals …this is a good thing, I will be able to live with my son until the next game
beat em bad. 😆
The worst part: I’m broke and out of beer.
So I gather this is some kind of sporting event?
More like a religious holy day.
So that explains the ritual rising and sitting of the worshippers in the stands.
My husband is the Grand Pooh Bah of a Fantasy League, I give up. Got Jets!
Husband got two tickets to the game from a friend. He and 15 year old son must be having a great time at the game. I am having a great time drinking wine, skyping with my football fan daughter in college in Atlanta, and chatting with you guys.
Angels have been on a tear for the last week. Tonight is against the Oakland A’s who theyust beat soundly in the next 3 games in order to wrest the wildcard spot. They just might do it.
That game is about to start.
I hope this guy gets his funding, because this looks cool as hell!
Damn, that was a good drive until the fumble.
Defense is looking good.
Defense ain’t looking so good no more.
If I had beer I’d be passed out by now.
More on polling, from Ace. This is just too funny. I keep hearing that Romney is up BIG with Independents, so how can all these polls be so close? I mean geez, Indies are almost 1/3 of the voting public these days. Wellllll, here’s one way:
LOL! I know, it’s crazy.
More on this CNN poll. Sheesh, talk about your thumb on the scale!
Not only is the D/R/I split at 44/34/22, that’s +10 Dems and 5% bigger Dem turnout than 2008, but blacks are 21% of the sample. They were 12% in 2008. And if it’s true that only 37 Independents were polled, then their error margin is so large that the entire poll is nothing more than random noise skewed toward Dems.
correction. The breakdown is 50/45/5
It’s possible that these kind of swing happen from poll to poll. It’s just noise. The next poll, if it’s noise, will be very different. I posted the ABC poll because it’s looking at registered and likely voters. There’s a huge difference between those two groups.
New WaPo poll out tonight — Obama’s “bounce” was short lived. Everything tied up even by WaPo.
WaPo/ABC poll (9/7 to 9/9)
Obama 49 Romney 48 (LV)
D 33 (94 B 6 R)
R 27 (6 B 91 R)
I 36 (43 B 54 R)
Romney leads big among Independents.
Nonetheless, remember — until the final weeks (when pollsters worry about their reputations, as everyone only remembers the final polls), these polls are being manipulated to set the narrative/keep people watching/reading, etc. The only poll that counts is ACTUAL VOTERS on ELECTION DAY.
Also, these national polls are doubly worthless because of the fact that we don’t elect presidents by popular vote, but by the EC.
It’s true the WaPo poll has Obama up 11 in “toss up states” but the poll doesn’t even cite which states it is counting as “toss ups” AND averaging them all together like the poll does hides the *real* story there as well.
Women are impacted more heavily than men.
Just wait until Obama swoops in to save them.
Don’t you mean “rushes in to bayonet the wounded?”
Do you think that’s the plan?
Giants are down by 1 with 2 out in the 9th.
My thoughts exactly !
People who don’t vote are leaning towards Obama.
Btw, this poll is the ABC/WP poll.
Teacher strike in Chicago hometown may be headache for Obama
What was that other team in silver and black? The team that played the last 50 minutes?
Was great watching the 2013 Raiders until they left the stadium deep
into the first quarter.
