Well I did miss seeing many games this season, but tonight's game was really good and it helps that I won 10.00.

Being European I'm watching the occasional soccer game, but hardly ever American football; especially not now when the club Morten Andersen plays in was eliminated in the preliminaries.
Strange that the most scoring player ever in NFL is from Denmark. Morten Andersen didn't even play football when he grew up in Denmark, but as an able soccer-player he could kick a ball - and he still can, even if the shape of the ball is another now.

This weekend's 2 games were rather good to watch, they were play-offs for the final game.

Well, I lost the 10.00 I won the other day last night. It was the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Giants in Green Bay where they played while the temperature at the beginning of the game was well below freezing and at the end had dropped down even further.

The winners were the New England Patriots who have won every game they played all this year and the Giants who started the year really badly and only got into the play-offs as a wild card.

It was in one of the play-off games between the Patriots and Giants that I won the 10.00 and now they are playing each other again. I will put my money on the Patriots again and keep your fingers crossed that they finish the season with a perfect record and I will win the jackpot as most people will be behind the Giants (it's the New York team even though their home base is in New Jersey).

As to Dylano's post, most kickers are from a soccer background and in a way have the best job in the game, because they rarely get squashed or bowled over by a 200plus(100kgplus) person.

Well, it was a good game, good company, too much food and luckily not too much dishwashing.
