Car in the Kitchen

So while the football season it winding down, I have decided to try and pick my story line of Ditto, use to be a little kitten, now a cat with a kitten spirit. So one thing that I think really shows his playfulness is this new "toy" he has. He tends to find things that he likes and make them him either by always going after them, or hiding them. i am still missing a magnet that goes on my white board. Anyways his newest toy that he found was one of me brothers Hot Wheels car. He found it and took it into the kitchen one day. Our kitchen has a tilely floor, so things roll easily on it. Well Ditto is extremely smart and figured this out. He found out that if he pushed the car, just on the kitchen floor, that it would roll across the room and then he could ran to it and pounce on it. So now every now and then you will hear this rolling of a car across the floor, and we no longer want it is. There is now a car in our kitchen, and it stays just in the kitchen because Ditto knows that that it is the only place where it will actually work.


While I would have rather seen the Vikings in the Super Bowl this year, the story lines are still pretty good. You have the city represented team, the New Orleans Saints and the city hero arm slinging, Indianapolis Colts.

The Saints have turned into being the representative of the city of new Orleans. Everyone knows what happened to the city a few years a ago with hurricane Katrina, and the destruction it cause to the city. All hope was lost and and the Saints were in question of having to move and no longer be home to New Orleans. They were one of the worst teams in the league for a long time. Finally with some fan support, some key stars, and a good head coach this team has made it to their first Super Bowl in franchise history. One less team to the list that has yet make t to the Super Bowl. Now they head to Miami to face the Colts who know what it is all about to be in this kind of stage, because a few years ago they won their own Super Bowl.

When you hear you hear the team name Colts, it is almost automatic that you think the quarterback, Peyton Manning. Maybe the best to ever play the position, and compared to a robot slinging machine, with scary accuracy. Manning makes his receivers stars. Like Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark; even though they are good themselves. He makes the team step up to entire new level of playing, and picks apart the defense bit by bit until they win. Manning works hard and plays hard and he wins. If you mention a running game in Indianapolis, people will probably stare at you then start walking away laughing.

So in a few hours the two teams will meet. The Colts are the favored team in this game by five points. This game is mostly a game of each side of the game. For the offensive side, it the fight to the first team to not score a touchdown. For the defenses it will be if they can make a stop against the high flying offenses. Both teams have for the most part relied on their offenses to put up points. This game though I believe it will come down to what the defense and front guys can do. If they can get after the quarterbacks their team have the best chance at winning the Super Bowl. It may just come down to has the ball last in the game to see if they are going to be able to win.

While I think the Colts may have a slight advantage with being at a stage this big before a few years ago, and I think that they might win, I personally have to cheer for the Saints. They beat the Vikings, and that doesn't make me feel good, but if at least they win the Super Bowl I can at least say that they lost the the Super Bowl champs. Also I feel like the Saints winning would be huge for the city of New Orleans, which at the moment needs all the help, support, and hope they take. Also it being their first time and the Colts winning the Super Bowl just a few years ago, I would like to see another team win, and why not have it be their first.

So here it is, while I have missed a few, my final game score prediction of the 2009- 2010 season. I have to at least have to think that the team I want to win is going to win, so here it is.

Saints: 41 Colts: 38

Post Pro Bowl

Almost a week ago was the Pro Bowl. As I had previously stated it was not really worth watching because of the lack of effort by most of the players. The AFC won 41 to 34, beating the NFC. Personally I wanted the NFC to win because I like the NFC conference better, but they lost. As it turned out the record of the Pro Bowl, as of now, the AFC and NFC have both won the same number of times. Each with 20 wins. As most MVP or high honors awards go, an offensive player won it. Surprise, surprise and it was a quarterback. Matt Schuab of the Texans had two touchdowns in the game and won the MVP award. If the high score doesn't tell you enough it was pretty much an offensive game. Part due to the fact like I have previously stated that players do not want to get injured, and therefore they do not hit as hard. There was not much defense on either side of the ball unless there was an interception. This Pro Bowl also set the record for the amount of passing yards. Both teams combined only ran the ball approximately 10 times the entire game. My last general thing to say about the game is that the attendance was the highest it has ever been, at least. This is mostly due to the fact that the Pro Bowl was not in Hawaii, but rather in Miami. While the players would rather have it in Hawaii too, more people did watch. The next two years though it will be played at Hawaii. Also better or worse the Pro Bowl was probably better to have before the Super Bowl, and that could also be part of the reason why a record attendance watched.

I just have a few more key things to talk about in this Pro Bowl. First would be why the heck would you put Tony Romo in as the last quarterback for the NFC. In my opinion he is not even that great of a quarterback. Sure he has some god moments, but he also has some really ones too. He basically lost it for the NFC. He got sacked more times than any other quarterback int he entire game. He also threw an interception on the final drive. The only player he ever really tried passing the football to was Miles Austin. The only reason for being the final QB in the game was probably the coaching of Wade Phillips, the Cowboys head coach. Why would you make your team worse by putting in the lowest voted quarterback in last to try and win the game for you. It just doesn't make much sense. Oh well the game doesn't matter that much, and it is over with, I just think that the decisions made by some o the coaching staff on the NFC wasn't very good. It just looked like the AFC wanted the to win the game more than the NFC, so congratulations.

Here is just a short video of some of the highlights of the Pro Bowl.
