Okay so the super is now over after a good game between the colts and the saints where the saints won 31-17. I'm happy for the saints, it seemed like every person who wasnt a colts fan was rooting for the saints whether they were a fan of theirs or not. They were the feel good story of the year. But now that the superbowl and football is over :( i will now be focusing my attention on how things work out till wrestlemania. There are many different options i see possible playing out. I still feel that orton and dibiase will deffinatlly be facing each other at mania, along with cena and batista. Edge will be main eventing the whole thing but against who? I currentlly think it will be chris jericho but we'll have to wait and see. I have no idea what there gonna do with the shawn michaels angle, that one could go in any direction right now, maybe he faces triple h maybe he faces the undertaker maybe he is in the money in the bank and wins and cashes it in against the undertaker.(I dont think the last one will happen, but you never know) Also i dont know what they are gonna do with the undertaker or triple h will one of them face shawn michaels and if so what will the other one do. Man things are heating up in the wwe and its starting to get interesting, like i said before this area between the royal rumble and wrestlemania is like the wwe's playoffs and i like how things really get heated up. I feel like after the elimination chamber pay per view in 2 weeks it will be much more clear where all the story lines will be headed but until then i will have to watch and guess.

Okay we are now just a mear 4 days away from super bowl 44, and i couldn't be more excited. We have the New Orleans saints being led by drew brees to face off against the Indianapolis Colts led by peyton manning. You have your $35million commercials, your pizza places making millions apon millions of dollars, dont even get me started on how the liquior stores will be on saturday night and sunday. Okay now lets take a look at the game. Going into the playoffs the saints ended the season 13-3 after having lost there last 3 games of the season. But when the playoffs started you couldnt even tell that they had lost there last 3 they came in like a well oiled machine. Although when it came to their NFC championship game against the vikings they came close to losing it, but thanks to the vikings for making a very stupid to many men in the huddle penalty causing bret favre to throw the football, which turned out to be an interception. the game went to over time where the saint emerged victorious. THen there is the colts who ended the season 14-2 having lost there last 2 games of the season sparking alot of controversie within there first loss. Half way threw the game and a perfect 14-0 season they decided to take out their starters while only having a 3 point lead. this caused them to lose the game and made critics talk for a very long time hell their probablly still talking about it. But once the playoffs started so did the colts emerging victoious in both of their playoff games and neither one being all that close to begin with. Now lets look at each teams star player it just so happens that both teams star players are their qb's. The saints like i said are led by drew brees who in his 2 playoff games this year has thrown for 444 yards and 6 touchdowns with 0 interception. those are some very good numbers for a qaurterback to have. Then theres the colts who are led by peyton manning. Manning is coming into the playoffs with 623 passing yards with 5 touchdowns and 1 interception. Those are also very good numbers. Heres th big thing though experience has to go to the colts seeing as how they have won the big one once before. The saints are going into their first super bowl in franchise history. Also history is on the side of the colts lets look back shale we. Last year the steelers won the super bowl, the first time the colts won the super bowl the year before they won it the steelers won. The first time peyton manning won a super bowl it was in miami in the rain, this years super bowl is in miami and last i heard there is a good chance of rain that day. Aslo when they won it the last time in the afc championship game they made a second half comeback agisnt the new england patriots, this year they made as econd half comeback aginst the new york jets another afc east team. So history is on the side of the colts, but sometimes history doesnt mean anything. If the colts fall behind in this game bye 14 or more points there is no way they make a comeback the saints offence is just too good. Personally i will be ruting for the saints since they have never won a super bowl before i would like to see them do it. I fell like they will have the advantage of the crowd because miami is closer to new orleans than it is to indy and being their first super bowl ever i expect there to be a lot of saints fans at this game. It is hard to compete agaisnt saints fans when you are the other team thay just have some edge. All i know is it has the potential to be a very good game and i expect it to be very high scoring. I feel however i will be rooting for the saint something is telling me manning gets ring number 2 in a hrad fought battle with the final score being 45-41 colts. I hoe all of you who watch enjoy the super bowl as i know i will(unless the game totally sucks), and lets not forget that the who is performing at halftime. I dont think they will be as good as springsteen was last year but i am looking forward to seeing them and who knows maybe theyll have a half time smashing their stuff. But anyway i hope people enjoy the superbowl especially if anyone is going to any parties like i am those are alwys fun, but should be a good game so enjoy it people.

Okay i just finished what i would consider a dream day after watching about 4 hours of wrestling. It started with me finally watching the royal rumble 9i know a little late but better late than never). Overall with exception of the divas match i felt that the royal rumble was a very good pay per view. After Wrestlemania the royal rumble could be my favorite pay per view, either that or summerslam. The show started off with a pretty good ecw title match between christian and ezekial jackson. I have to say that match was much better than i had expected it to be, usually jackson has some bad matches but something about captain charisma made him have a good match. Next was a match for the us title between the miz and mvp. I really hoe this match wasnt the last we see of these two against each other, they had been building a very good rivalry going into this match and i would love to see that continue. Then i was a little surprised to see the wwe title match next but i was not dissapointed with it. I expected a good match between these two mostly because orton is currentlly one of the best and sheamus if given the right oponent isnt all that bad and is only improving. They had the divas match next which was a major disapointment and really didnt need ot be there. The world title match between mysterio and the undertaker was perhaps the match of the night that wasnt the royal rumble match. The rumble match itself was a good one like it usually is and had some surprises. The biggest surprise was the see beth phoenix enter in th rumble and have her eliminate someone. I was actually ok with that as she is one of the only divas who can have a good match. I was really glad to see edge come back as he could possible be my favorite wrestler right now not named shawn michaels. Then i watched raw which wasnt all that bad. I was glad to see them get the participant for the elimination chamber match quick instead of dragging the qualifing matches on like they usually do. THe angle with bret hart and vince is startingto look good but i feel like batistas interference in last night showdown was unneeded. I was really glad to see kofi kingston qualify for the elimination chamber, because adding him to a match only makes it better. cant wait to se what hapens this friday on smackdown with their elimination chamber. This is the best time for wrestling fans because the time between the rumble and wrestlemania is like wwe's version of the playoffs. So thats my post for today check back tomorrow as i plan on analyzing and making a pick for this sundays super bowl.

Wow i can't beleive how long it's been since my last post over the summer. So many things have happened since then. There have been massive amounts of celebrity deaths :(, I have officially started college at CCRI, the super bowl is almost among us, the golden globes went bye( i should have made prediction i probablly will for the oscars though), the grammys were last night, and im sure there is more that i cant think of. I am now going to try to post things more frequentlly. Today on my mind is sports (big surprise). One of the big things in my opinion in sports this weekend was dion phaneuf of the calgery flames was traded to the toronto maple leafs and also was jean sebastion jiguere. For those who dont know phaneuf is a defensman and jiguaere (im not really sure how to spell his last name) is one of the leagues top goalies. In my mind i feel like this could help elevate toronto from one of the worst eams in the east right now to being a possible playoff contender. Now i don't think they will make the playoffs this year but i feel maybe next year they could be lookin at the playoffs for the first time in a while. This was a good move for toronto as both players will help out phil kessel in making this team good. The other big thing in sports this weekend is not the probowl but instead the oklahoma city thunder. As some may not know the thunder are and NBA team (my favorite) and there star player kevin durant was able to drop 45 points last night against the golden state warriors. Man is durant ever impressive, this is only his third season in the nba and i for one feel he should be this years league mvp. He is now second in the league in ppg after passing lebron(last years mvp). Idk maybe im wrong in thinking that but in my mind he should be this years mvp, all i know is as long as they make the playoffs (currently 9th seed) i will be happy with that. So thats it for now got some stuf off my chest and i hope to be back with before the super bowl and give people my take on that a little later in the week.
