Playoffs, Are You Talking About Playoffs?

Haven't the Patriots clinched a playoff spot? Too much math for my brain to deal with at the moment.
If the AFC Playoffs Began Today : Patriots Daily

1st seed - AFCE division leader New England Patriots (9-0). Last Sunday’s gutty comeback win over the reigning champion Colts gives the Pats undisputed possession of the AFC’s first seed this week. Little known fact - prior to Sunday, the Colts held this spot by virtue of the 4th tiebreaker; strength of victory.
That's surprising. If someone had come off the street and told me that last week, I wouldn't have believed them.

Drama, Drama, Drama...

It's only been a few weeks since the Red Sox won the World Series and we're seeing more drama now than we did during the season.

Schilling returns after his last game in a Red Sox uniform for only $8 million for one year, unless he keeps the weight down, in which case he gets $2 million more. I mean, offer me the money to keep the weight off, please!

Will Lowell be coming back (I want him for two years, but certainly not four!), or will the Red Sox enter the ARod party line (Please, please, please don't spend that much money on one player! Remember how you tried to waive manny and no one took him? That was just for $20 mill a year!). What about Pena at first instead?

Youk gets the golden glove and the most photographed award (I've seen so many after party pictures and in-flight shots over the past few days).

And then there's Coco, the man who could have won a Gold Glove if his rep was better than his name. Will he be traded and for who? Theo always seems to want to get the best deal possible, but let's just take what we can get, ok? We don't need a fourth outfielder all that badly. We could have won with or without him this year, and the same can be said for any other fourth outfielder you can name.

All in all, a lot to digest over the past week. Can we get back to the dancing and bedazzling, please? ;-)

Pats Go Back to Sunday Night

Not that I have a problem with watching the Patriots at night, but is playing against Buffalo really that exciting?
Patriots' Nov. 18 trip to Buffalo moves to Sunday night -

The league pushed back the start of New England's game at the Buffalo Bills on Nov. 18 to 8:15 p.m. ET and it will move from CBS to NBC. Originally, Patriots-Bills was set for 1 p.m. ET on CBS and Chicago at Seattle was the night game.
