31 days until pitchers and catchers

The beautiful thing about boxing is that if you're pissed you can punch your opponent in the face. Leonard Davis might want to get that rage out of his system during the offseason instead of getting called for the worst penalty of the year, one of the few the refs got right, his late hit on Michael Strahan. That penalty cost us a first down, killed momentum, and was followed up by a freakin' huge drop by Patrick Crayton. Jason Garrett, brilliant innovative genius that he is, decided to call one deep pass play to the single-covered T.O. during the 2nd half, and had Jason Witten and his 96 receptions blocking on the last play. If the Dolphins want him they can have him, I'd rather keep Tony Sparano anyway. Too bad Parcells isn't retarded.

I hate using excuses like bugs, fugazy behavior or refs to rationalize a loss, but the refs sucked. One of the most egregious examples was the intentional grounding call on Romo. The rule states that it should be called if the QB is under duress. It was not. That backed us up 10 yards, leading to 2nd and 20.

But the officiating screwup that cost us the most was on Barber's non-fumble in the last minute of the game. The Giants took the ball and started running with it. The refs chose to allow them to waste our precious time, costing us 20 seconds that could have been used picking apart the Giants' mediocre pass defense, instead of having to force balls into the end zone.

At the end of the day, Romo's still the man, Eli's still a retard, with a heretofore unrealized, by me at least, speech defect that gives me more ammunition to make fun of him, and if these 2 teams were playing today I'd be very confident Dallas would win.

Let's go Packers. There is no point spread too high that will stop me from banging them. Hard.
