    No white wine and bire for our tailgate, the Jambalaya is now cooked and will be served by 9:00 this morning as we wait and party before the Niners put away the shrimps and chickens from NOLA at 1:30 PM.

    Bloody Mary's is the morning adult beverage but as game time approaches it will become time for a cold Anchor Steam Beer, Tri-Tip on the grill sided with diced potatos with green chiles and onions. Weather in the upper 60's, light winds and we're ready for some football.

    Predicitions for the Weekend:

    Niners 27, (S)aints 24;

    Pats 38, Broncos 16;

    Ravens 17, Texans 14;

    Giants 38, Packers 35 (OT);

    So far, I'm 3 for 3; go giants. BTW, yesterday I said weather in the upper 60's and light winds. In fact the weather was clear, sunny and no chance for a brees.

    Hard to be humble?

    BTW, what's your solution for campaign finance reform? Maybe start a thread on it in Politics?

    Humble? Yesterday as the Niners broke the huddle I said to my son and our friends, "it's time for a naked rollout by Alex"; seconds latter TD niners (it pays to be lucky - if I could do any of this all the time I'd bet on sport. I know I can't, so I don't).

    As for your second question, I'd start by loudly and often whining about CU v FEC and how it pollutes the democratic process. Anyone watching how Super PAC's are influencing voters during the Iowa and New Hampshire (& now S. Carolina) nomination 'elections' ought to be concerned.

    We should carry this over to the Politics forum if you want to continue it, but why should unions get to spend hundreds of millions in campaign donations and political ads if the corps can't? I ain't real crazy about the Super PACs either, but let's not tilt the playing field one way or the other. Far as I can tell, the amount of money spent in 2010 was relatively even, as it probably should be.


    BTW, the Giants are up 10 last I looked.

    CU v. FEC allows anyone, Unions, Corps, Hugo Chavez, Ahmadinejad, the Mormon Church, Isreal, ANYONE or any organization to put in an ulimited amount of money anonomously into a Super PAC.

    btw, Giants 37, Pack 20 with 2:36 to go.

    Yeah, 4 for 4 is pretty good, looks like the Giants are peaking at the right time.

    Yep. At our tailgate one of my friends sons and his wife were there from NOLA. Though they added pepper sauce to what I made, they liked it. Losts of shrimp, andouille and chicken, red and yellow bell peppers, white onion, cellery, tomato and rice. A full meal.

    btw, I'm 4 for 4.
