Rams Flexing Leads Monday Ramblin’s…

It’s all over, but I think I just saw the first ad for 2011 Christmas…

The Rams have been tabbed to close the 2010 regular season on Sunday night? Oh, how the talking heads are going to feast on this all week. The open pulling for Seattle and their 7-9 record to get in the playoffs will be palpable so they can have another week of screaming for a rule change. SCREW THEM. The playoffs start Sunday for the Rams and the whole country will have to suffer through NFC West football like we did all year…

Not much gets done Christmas/New Year’s weeks in the MLB. That being said, the Cardinals are playing with fire by not at least having some sort of discussions with Pujols’ agents. Once the calendar hits 2011, there’s only about 7 weeks until players report. Pujols has never negotiated in season…

Movie Snot: Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. I loved Wall Street. So I was pretty sure this one wasn’t going to live up to my expectations. And it most certinaly didn’t. 3 things: 1) Gordon Gekko doesn’t need to get morals. 2) The female lead wasn’t cast right and wasn’t written right. And probably more of the latter than the former. Doesn’t want to get married, but then takes a huge ring. Always pissed and kind of average looking, but the millionare playboy can’t live without her. Just not a good role. 3) Susan Sarandon, feel free to take a trip to the south before you play a woman from the south. C-…

Dude. Lee, Halladay, Oswalt, Hamels. The Phillies really are sending out this rotation in 2011. That’s just insane. And I woke up this morning having had a dream about those 4 guys. So I guess I really need to consider getting a girlfriend…

The Little Caesars Pizza Bowl is going to be hard to top. Seriously. It was on last night and featured not only a last minute drive where the Toledo coach went for 2 and the win, but also a hail mary hook n’ ladder play on 4th and forever on the ensuing FIU deperation drive that set up the actual game winning field goal. Throw in two back-to-back 80 plus yard runs and that’s a bowl game that no one gave a rip about that turned out to be 20x better than the bowl your excited for will be…

If you missed the Isaac Bruce Christmas Story I worked up on SB Nation last week, take a look. It includes video. LINK HERE

Kudos for HMW’s ’12 Days of Crapmas’ series he ran the past two weeks. I’ve gotten nice notes from people all over the place saying how much they enjoyed that series. On a related note, the bacon videos I promised a couple of weeks ago have been on hold, but are still in the works. Stay tuned…
