Late Instant Hippo Thoughts – Week Six

I drank way the fuck too much watching my beloved Donks give me repeated heart attackery at the local sports pub yesterday. Turns out the manager/proprietor is also a fan, and said I was the first fellow traveler in his establishment for a game all season! I also made some new acquaintances who were anxious to know how their kicker and defense were doing. Fucking great, I says. This is a reliable answer to give, as I will expound upon in my mid-season recap Wednesday morning. Sadly, the same cnnot be said for PeyPey.

Dead cat bounce was quite high indeed for the Fins. Figures, as I had both given up and traded Lamar Miller, and picked up the Titans defense in my money league.

Landry Jones didn’t suck, or at least on the Michael Vick level. How bad could he really fuck up in a week before The Ben returns anyway? Dude still looks like he should be riding shotgun in Marc Trestman’s van.

Cincinnati keeps escaping all its trap games. I am running out of even reach reasons to dismiss them at this point.

Chris Ivory is LaDainian Tomlinson all of a sudden, and with that, the Jets are worth paying attention to. A puncher’s chance in Foxboro if the P*ts play as meh as they did in Indy.

Seaking if the late night game, the Colts are complete fucking ass. As DFO noted earlier, the Seachickens grab all the headlines for it but the Colts have many of the same problems masked by a shitty division and thusly a weaker schedule.

Cam Newton for MVP. I’ll keep saying it whilst he keeps earning it. And PK can keep sucking it.

San Diego put up video game passing numbers on the Packer secondary, but it wasn’t quite enough. I wish I hadn’t passed out and had the chance to see more of it. Green Bay and Denver square off after their respective byes, and we will get to see just how illusory their 6-0 marks really are. Thank fuck (from my POV) it’s in Mile High.

Reclusive, vulgar Broncos fan. Also a proud fookin' Evertonian. Likely dropped on my head repeatedly as a small child. [Insert George Carlin quote followed by thoughtful nod.]

I should’ve gotten drunker on Sunday. Oh well, there’s always 2:00 PM.

American Pie Story

I was thisclose to jumping onto the field to hit Brady. I woulda done it for you guys.


I would have paid your bail.


So here’s the thing about ‘instant’…

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

It was business as usual in the Patriots’ locker room after the game.

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

As the owner of Marc Trestman’s van. I will allow access to the guy that 100% touches kids. No Steeler’s allowed though.

I just dismiss the Bengals by saying “we’ll see what they do in the playoffs.”

Best of luck surviving the rest of the season. I guess the down side of being a fan of a good team is a larger amount of football stress related drinking.


So I’ve been thinking about this whole Seattle thing, and it’s starting to remind me a lot of the plot of The Natural. Roy Hobbs (Russell Wilson) comes out of obscurity to lead his team to an unprecedented run of success. But eventually he falls for the alluring temptress Memo Paris (Ciara) and he descends into a slump. Until a mysterious “lady in white” appears in the stands…


Oh, that’s good.

Old School Zero

Mile High cannot save you.

But getting high might help.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

The Packers will murder the Donks.


I’m not so sure. Denver’s defense is for real and the main reason their record is what it is. Don’t see that changing against the Pack.
