I forgot to add that the "a" in front of the New England/St. Louis game is because they will be playing in London, at Wembley Stadium.  You might want that information as you make your picks!

Later edited to add - Cyn, I clicked that Navy Gangham video and was LMAO.  I didn't realize that was what alot of NFL players were imitating this past weekend.  Even Giant's JPP did it after sacking RGIII.

Darn it.  Youtube took it down for copyright infringement.  

And looks like everyone is off to a great start after Thursdays pick again.  That was my first chance to watch a full Vikings game, and besides being surprised at how badly they played, it was very boring.  The only excitement was when Jared Allen went into beast mode after he got bloodied up.   He's one of my favs.

Hope everyone is safe also with the storm.

ETA: Maybe I'll get to see him do it during the Bears game. But then again I'd rather not. LOL:)

Congratulations everyone, boy I thought we were done for!  Thank god for Bryant's big ol' fingers.

I started a post about 10 minutes ago and then I lost everything when the power went out.  It came back on, but I don't know how long it will stay.  Hope none of the trees come down around my home... we are surrounded by them.  We have family living at Point Pleasant, NJ and my sister-in-law has a condo right on the boardwalk of Point Pleasant Beach.  The Weather Channel people are filming right in front of it and I actually saw my husband on tv yesterday when he drove down to help her evacuate.  Everytime they show Point Pleasant, they are standing directly in front of her home.  Surreal!  We have a generator that will  keep the essentials going such as some lights, the frig, water & toilet.  We won't be able to use the stove, but we do have a gas grill. So now we just wait and pray it doesn't get to bad here.

 My dopey brother-in-law also lives in Point Pleasant and he & his family are riding it out.  We tried to talk him out of it, but he is so darn stubborn!

I sent Alex a note telling him we were all thinking of him.  Hopefully he will be able to contact us soon.  Bettyjean; thoughts are with you, be safe. 

We came through the storm relatively unscathed.  Strong winds though, up to gusts of 60 mph.  In our neighborhood there was no damage and we were able to keep the power on.  But there are alot of trees down and damage in more southern areas of the state. Most schools cancelled classes for today to give folks time to clean up.  Just a terrible, terrible thing to have happened.
