In the end there can be only one

NFL: AFC Wild Card Playoff-Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens

Today is the second-biggest day of the year for pro football fans. Four teams will play today. The two winners will meet in the Super Bowl. In the end there can be only one champion.

The early game will be the SF Niners at Atlanta Falcons. The late game will feature the Baltimore Ravens at the New England Patriots.

Network execs are hoping for a Niner-Patriots Super Bowl because that should get the maximum ratings. A Ravens-Falcons Super Bowl would suck (unless you’re a Ravens or a Falcons fan).

This is an open thread.

    Hey kids, it’s a photo-palooza of the kids concert last night with our “rawking” Flotus 😀 I go right to the UK’s Daily Mail …..

    Obama takes his first oath today at noon. Tomorrow’s the big public event with about a million LESS people expected than ’09. Is the magic wearing off ?

    And in other parts of the world that aren’t about the Obamas ….

    Nothing to see here, just pesky “militants” …

    You can always tell around here when the Pats are involved in a playoff game. All of the meat and deli counters at the grocery stores are stocked with meat, shrimp, and cheese platters. The produce department in filled with veggie trays and fruit bowls. Every cupcake in the bakery has red, white, and blue frosting. If you want a pot roast, you’re out of luck.

    Well, some might argue that today is actually the “biggest” day for many NFL fans as the final playoff games are frequently better than the often, over-hyped Super Bowl games.

    Still, for me, college basketball rules…yesterday had some amazing games….Syracuse/Louisville, Ohio State/Michigan State, Creighton/Wichita State, Wyoming/San Diego State…and the best of all Gonzaga/Butler….a truly astounding game….something for everyone in every part of the country.

    And, with all due respect, the NFL playoffs may be the best…but you gotta love March madness and bracketology!!!

      We’ll watch today for some good football, then we’ll watch the Super Bowl for the commercials.

      I do love March Madness for the underdogs knocking out top seeds in the early rounds. 😀

      There was a long stretch in the late 70’s thru the mid-90’s where the SB games tended to be blow-outs. Since then there has been more close games – several that were a thrill to the finish.
