Every Monday of the NFL season we post a picture or video that sums up why we love NFL Sundays. It’s the Monday Morning Hangover! View previous week’s hangovers here.
I hope everyone had a nice holiday. All things considered, there was a lot going on in the sports world over the long weekend. We saw maybe the coolest touchdown in the history of the NFL. And, thanks to us, two million people got to watch the replay online (#humblebrag).
Beyond the best TD ever, there was a whole lot more going on on Christmas Eve. The Tebow stock continues to fall more steeply than Best Buy’s will tomorrow morning. The Jets and Rex Ryan reverted back to the redheaded stepchildren of the New York metro-area, once again.
Tonight we might just get to see Drew Brees break Dan Marino’s single-season yardage record. He is 305 yards away. There have only been 3 games this season in which Brees did not surpass 300 yards.
Hopefully this weekend brought everyone quality time with their friends and families. That’s of the utmost importance. However, it’s not too shabby to become closer with our sports, too.
The NFL led us seamlessly into our NBA-centric Christmas Day. Which gives me the opportunity to say; I’m not a complete sports obsessive. I didn’t watch one minute of live NBA action from noon until well after 8PM. Yes, thank you, thank you.
But, those highlights, those were something to take in. Can we book the Thunder and Heat in the Finals now?
Make no mistake, this is still NFL season. Week 17, although technically in 2012, has a chance to be one of the best weeks of the 2011 NFL season.
