Happy New Year 2014!

Greetings Fellow Bloggers!

With luck, health and prosperity... not to mention a little free time, I hope to post a little more on this blog in 2014.

In the meantime, are any of you following the NFL playoffs?  Who's your pick to go all the way?

I know the Packers won't.  They may win today's frigid game in Green Bay, but the NFC North stunk this year.

Think about it!  The difference between the Packers winning the division as opposed to the Bears was having a few more brain cells on a freak play that was never whistled dead.  It was only when the announcers in the TV booth mentioned that the ball hadn't been whistled dead (while already reviewing the instant replay) that the Packers' sideline erupted; somebody picked up the ball and walked into the end zone.  That play was the margin of victory for the Packers.

I'm kinda thinkin' Carolina is will advance deep into the playoffs if not make the big show (Super Bowl).  Ex-Bear Ron Rivera is determined to show the world he can head-coach a football team and he's really demonstrating it with results.  Everybody seems so surprised.  I'm not.  Somebody from that 1984 Bears Super Bowl team was bound to become a successful NFL coach.

Most bets were on Mike Singletary, but Mike was handed a bad deal.  Wouldn't you know it would be someone flying under the radar like Ron Rivera who would rise through the ranks.

OK.  That's all for now.  Gotta run.

Hope to see you more often in 2014.  Keep reading the old stuff.  Most of it is quite relevant.

Happy New Year,

There is NO Santa Claus (aka TINSC)
