I don't know if anyone else saw this yesterday but check out the hat Colin Kaepernick was rocking during his Sportscenter one on one yesterday. You kidding me bro? Here I am all week trying to work up a good hate lather and he pitches this curve ball 48 hours from the game. Diabolical doesn't even begin to describe this. This would be like a terrorist group blaring Real American in their next video. Ruthless. And when I saw this while getting lunch with some co-workers and Chile's* yesterday, we naturally googled him to see why he would every wear a Brewers hat. Turns out he was born in Milwaukee. Spent his younger years in Fond du Lac. Like this guy is basically our neighbor. And now he's going to try and eliminate us from the playoffs! This must be when Caesar felt like when Brutus turned on him. Only Kaepernick probably won't stab me in the back and let me bleed out on the Senate floor. Presumably.
Anyhow I'm not sure what's going to happen on Saturday but I do remember all of the Niner's/Packer's playoff games in the 90's being epic. Desmond Howard looking like star power Mario in the mud at Lambeau in the 1996 Divisional game. Dorsey running wild in the '97 NFC Championship game. Of course the only game that could rival Freddie Mitchell and 4th and 26 in terms of rage; the OWENS OWENS OWENS '98 Wild Card game. But the one I'll never forget was the '95 Divisional game in San Fran. The Niners were reigning Super Bowl champs, at home and the #1 seed. The Packer's were just starting to go from outer fringe to legit threat. Now as history will tell you the Packer's went into Candlestick and stomped on the Niners like they were a Goomba but the reason I will always remember it was because I didn't actually see the game. It was a Saturday afternoon match-up and I had an elementary school YMCA basketball game at the same time. So as I sat there on the bench poured in basket after basket NBA Jam He's On Fire Style, I couldn't help but be stressed out and obsessing over what the score was. Like it was that moment where I realized how much I loved football and never wanted to not be able to watch big games. I didn't know it then, but that day a tiny degenerate was born. Actually come to think of it not much has really changed for me since then. I'm still Packer obsessed, I still freak out when I can't watch the game, and I'd still be riding the pine in 5th grade basketball. Just throw a beard on my and move my hairline back a bit and 2013 isn't much different from 1995. #reasonsicryatnight
Final score prediction: Packers- 32 Niners-28. Oh and just like last week the Packer's cover (+3) without question. I feel like Matthew Lesko giving out all this free money.
