I've long thought that Championship Sunday would make for a better party than Super Bowl Sunday. Obviously you get two presumably good games, which means double the time to gorge yourself on food and booze. You would eliminate some of the guests who ask tons of questions because the Super Bowl is the only time they watch football. Also, you don't have to worry about getting told to quiet down or shushed during the commercials by your friend's girlfriend because they aren't Super Bowl commercials. I'm definitely throwing a Championship Sunday party next year.
I'm changing things up a bit this week and going with some vintage pics of the cheerleaders of the four teams left in the NFL Playoffs. Not only is it fun to look way back, the oldest pic in the group is from 1992, but I've nearly burned through all the current pics. Besides, some of these are from 2005, so we're not exactly talking about sepia toned photos.
The lines for the games are out and despite playing at home, Atlanta is a four point underdog. That completely makes sense after the way they played and the way the 49ers played last weekend. The Falcons needed a miracle ending and the Niners completely dominated Green Bay. In the AFC, the Patriots are a nine point favorite over Baltimore. Enjoy the games.
