Today is the big day. Storied franchises. Big name players. Everyone bbq’ing getting ready for this clash of the titans.
That’s right, the Magic and the Celtics face off today in a rematch of last year’s eastern conference finals. Personally, I can’t wait. Dwight, Jameer, Hedo, Arenas, Rondo, KG, Ray Allen, Pierce…just some great match ups in this one.
Oh yeah. There’s also a pretty big NFL game on today as the Steelers and Packers face off for the chance to be crowned champion of their league. Should be a good game, too. Both teams sport top notch defenses and quarterbacks that know how to extend a play and put some points up on the board.
Personally, I think the Packers win this one with a couple of big pass plays that beat the Steelers’ patented blitz scheme. But take that with a grain of salt as I picked the Colts in last year’s game vs. the Saints and we all know how that turned out. Anyways, enjoy the game (and the commercials) and let me know in the comments who you got and why.
On a side note, it was exactly one year ago today that I officially took over FB&G full time. I can’t believe it’s already been a year. Thanks much to all of you that continue to make this community so special and to all the contributors that put up such great, thought provoking content. This place would be nothing without all of you. We’ll be back focusing on hoops tomorrow but today enjoy the pigskin action on the grid iron.
