Sleigh bells ring are you listening? It's the time in the NFL where the guys are either getting ready to book flights to their playoff destinations or rent that old U-Haul to clean out their lockers and begin their vacations a little early (see Cleveland, Indianapolis, Minnesota, Jacksonville, etc.) Well, I'm finally floating down from Cloud Nine after my Chiefs...that's right MY CHIEFS beat the undefeated Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers!!!! I couldn't believe it, especially since I picked against them.
This week the Oakland Raiders roll into Arrowhead to once again renew their rivalry. Oddly, every team, including the Kansas City Chiefs, are still in the playoff hunt. I don't really know how. I'm an English major and that requires math, and yeah, I don't really like math.
The craziness reared its ugly head again last week. It was mismash of lunacy, as Indy finally won a game (they made it two in a row on Thursday night beating the Texans), Philly spanked the Jets, the Redskins beat the Giants, and Carolina beat Houston. It was absolutely unbelievable. Oh, Timmy boy lost. Can't wait for Monday Night Football! Tony Gonzalez vs. Jimmy Graham...I mean, the Atlanta Falcons vs. the New Orleans Saints!!!
Last week was a dismal time here at Diana Dishes. I went an abysmal 6-7 bringing my total to 121-55. Dear Santa, bring me some better picks this week...

Well, everybody, that's all I've got. The NFL is knocking out most of its games on Saturday afternoon for your gift wrapping entertainment. The NBA will be there on Christmas to help distract you from the fam until Chicago/Green Bay. Until next time, remember "“Christmas doesn't come from a store, maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more....” ― Dr. Seuss
