The majority of it came on Saturday morning/afternoon, as it was do or die for not only the Oakland Raiders, but also the West Sac Narwhals (you guessed it, my fantasy team). Boring Morning Games – The scores may look close, but the 49ers-Rams and Jets-Dolphins definitely didn’t feel as close as your average 34-27 or 19-17 games.
As we pass each other the guy turns and asks “Hey you going to the game Sunday? I take a couple steps and turn around, and say “You know I’m not sure, I went last Saturday (to the Niners epic win over the Saints) and it was incredible.

I swear, when I was a kid, roughly 6 of the best 7 of all 15 bowl games were on New Year’s Day. I broke out my new smoker and probably served up the best trio of Tri-Tip, Pork Loin, and Smoked Salmon this side of the Rocky Mountains. I had my share of knee jerk reactions to those knee jerk reactions.
If I remember my weekend correctly (which I certainly don’t), NONE of the 35 Bowls were played on Sunday. I had no other choice since I spent the majority of the weekend off the grid in spectacular Yosemite National Park.
I had some spotty reception, and there was a TV in the tavern, but for the most part, I spent the weekend oblivious to what was going on in the world.
