The Bullpen Session is a weekly round-up of my observations surrounding Cubs baseball and much, much more!
Happy New Year, Cubs fans!
–Laid low this New Year’s eve. No hotel parties, no concerts, just some Pete’s pizza (with extra sauce) a bottle of champagne and a movie. Perfect!
–Not so perfect are our Chicago Blackhawks. Not only have they fallen to the bottom of the division, but they’re also out of the top eight playoff spots. So yeah, I’m officially worried.
The Hawks’ Wednesday night season ticket package hasn’t been kind to us, either. One win in six games. Is there something about ‘hump day’ that keeps the Hawks from winning?
–Looking forward to Saturday’s Colts vs. Jets playoff game. Colts have been playing well the last month, much better than the Jets. And getting hot at the right time is what it’s all about, right?
While New Orleans won its first title, Heath won his second!
Thanks for the many emails that poured in, mostly notably Heath’s which came in Sunday at 3:51 EST.
Nonetheless, congrats to everyone who picked the Saints!
Thanks for playing.
I: Big Mike – Baltimore
II: Brian - New England
III: Heath - Tampa Bay
IV: Nicole - New England
V: Nicole - New England
VI: Talitha - Pittsburgh
VII: Ed - Indianapolis
VIII: Ed - New York
IX: Talitha - Pittsburgh
X: Heath – New Orleans
Once a year I break away from Cubs baseball to talk a little NFL, specifically my Super Bowl prediction.
And would you believe this is the tenth year of my self titled ‘Brian’s Super Bowl Bash?’ Wow!
For the newbies, it’s very simple. I need three things: Super Bowl winner, final score and most importantly the MVP choice for any tiebreakers.
All entries must be submitted before the opening kickoff. No payment required, bragging rights only.
Remember, hundreds have played, but only six have won! I’ll post this year’s winner here on Monday…my pick is below!
