Football playoffs fulfill many roles in my life – distraction from the cold weather, excuse to eat junk food, opportunity to actually enjoy a Sunday. This year, most of my picks have not done so well – probably because I didn’t want to see the same old teams move on. Let’s shake things up!

In the wildcard games, my only win came when the Texans topped the Raiders. Otherwise, the Packers victory over the Cowboys was the one call I got right this past weekend. Good thing I didn’t put money on it!

I think I will root for the Packers to win it all. Which means that the Patriots will somehow win in a blowout with Brady throwing four touchdown passes and going for 350 yards. Maybe if I root for New England upfront, they will follow the pattern of my other picks and lose. Hmm, something to consider.

Not only have the majority of my teams lost, but most of the games have been pretty lackluster. The most exciting headliner game was the Green Bay / Cowboys game. Obviously, it was the only game I wasn’t able to watch in its entirety, so it naturally was the most entertaining. Hopefully it was such a good classic the rerun will play sooner rather than later so that I can see how the Cowboys managed to tie it at 28.

I’m not too bitter that I missed the middle of the game – I was eating pizza topped with cheese, tomatoes and prosciutto, followed by a Nutella calzone, so I was obviously still enjoying myself.

But the moral of the story is – DON’T LEAVE THE HOUSE DURING FOOTBALL!

Or – if you want everyone else to enjoy an exciting, riveting game – make plans!

Counting down to Sunday!
