This football update comes early by virtue of the Unforced Error being installed as our Commander in Chief tomorrow combined with more mundane things like preparing for an important experiment. And then I'll be attending the Women's March on NYC on Sat as well, so it's important I get this posted before anything goes down. If you're feeling glum, you may want to put things in perspective by reading about how bad (the formerly San Diego) Chargers fans have it.
Sun 3:05pm FOX (PJ Leahy's, LIC, NYC): The GB Packers are forced to play in the final football game in the Georgia Dome, which is in Rep. Jon Lewis' congressional district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested), in order to square off with my Dirty Birds. ATL's ground game coupled with their overlooked defense might make it difficult for GB QB Aaron Rodgers to play backyard ball while his parents are actively cheering for ATL QB Matt Ryan. Rappers are already vigorously supporting ATL if they're not confused about it.
6:40pm CBS: After kicking it in the divisional round last week, the Yinzburgh Stillers travel to Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts, the only place NFL Commissioner Roger 'The Ginger Hammer' Goodell fears to tread. Yinzburgh star WR Antonio Brown let it be known, via InstaChat, that the Stillers spotted those assholes [the Patriots] a day and a half, but will be ready for their ass, while the Patriots are confident that all the locker room footage they have of other teams would never end up on social media. The Patriots are also facing a backlash in their liberal home state because of their close association with the President-elect, so I wouldn't rule out an errant tweet or two.
