The Weird List Gets Weirder

So, in the last few weeks we've seen:

1. A Minnesota team record two safeties against a Wisconsin team, and the following week, a Wisconsin team record two safeties against a Minnesota team.

2. A tie. In which one QB admitted to not knowing that ties happen in the NFL.

3. The first 11-10 final score in NFL history on an improperly disallowed defensive score on the last play of the game.

4. The Wisconsin Badgers winning a game in overtime against a division 2 team, after trailing all day, because the division two team missed 3 PATs, including one in overtime.

I happen to know for a fact that I can hit 70% of my PATs even after downing 6 shots of tequila. At least I used to be able to.

5. A fair catch kick! And an ugly one at that.

Non-fun fact: The last successful fair catch kick in the NFL was by Mac Percival in 1968, scoring the game-winning field goal for the Chicago Bears against the Green Bay Packers.

Badgers have no business going to a bowl game. They may even regret it when they get destroyed.

Speaking of which, Jets destroyed Tennessee on the road. This after defeating the Patriots on the road. Impressive.

Saints must die. Despite the fact i have Lance Moore and newly acquired Reggie Bush on my fantasy team. Oh yeah, my opponent has Rodgers and Grant. I hold a four point lead going into tomorrow night. I'll trade a loss for a Packer victory. and another defensive lineman.
