The Road to Indianapolis: Week 6: Peer Mediation Between Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz

As a fan of the 49ers I had a heavy interest in their game with the Lions this Sunday. It was an emotional and intense game. Detroit’s stadium was rocking, players were chippy, both coaches were screaming at officials, and the game’s outcome came down to the final minutes.

The Road to Indianapolis: Ignorance is Bliss for Week 5

I didn’t get to watch much football this week due to a family engagement, a basketball game, and the fact that I had to get my face glued after I smashed my head on the floor in an awkward flail for an offensive rebound that started with me tripping on some guys leg.

I only got to see the first half of the Colts/Chiefs game, the second half of the 49ers/Buccaneers game, the Monday Night game, and at least one highlight to every other game.

The Road to Indianapolis: What I Love and Hate from Week 4 in the NFL

The most important football news to come out of this week is the announcement that Madonna will be performing at halftime of the Super Bowl. Feel free to use the played out joke, “I know the first thing that comes to my mind when I think football is Madonna” but it’s not like the NFL has a storied history in getting acts to play that embody the essence of football. I’m sure people from Indiana would have loved some musical artist from their state to play, but that really just leaves John Mellencamp. I think most Hoosiers can agree that we’ve heard enough renditions of “Jack and Diane” and “Small Town” at our dreadful high school dances. Who wants to relive that shit?

On to the actual sport of football and some Love and Hate! Continue reading
