NFL Week #16 Early

For some reason, the NFL decided to have a Christmas Eve tilt this year between the Vikings and Packers. I heard on the radio that one Green Bay Catholic church even cancelled a mass on Christmas Eve for it. Way to go, Father. Way to teach your people about the true meaning of Christmas. Anyway, my picks for the Friday and Saturday games are: Vikings, Chiefs, Titans. Having said that, I could pretty easily pick the other three teams.

The Master comments: Eeyore's picks: Vikings, Chiefs, Broncos.

Pondering the Imponderable

Hmm, winter must've started yesterday or something. Right now the temperatures are a brisk -2°F here with -18°F wind-chills. That's almost 30 degrees below the average high for this time of year. The seven or eight inches of snow we got in the past couple of days make everything look nice. We'll definitely have a white Christmas (with a side order of slush).

I'm at the point in Half-Life 2 where you get four squad mates. They seem to get in my way more than anything else. Thankfully there doesn't seem to be team damage so I can shoot through them. Unfortunately, my framerates are in the single digits, making "aiming" a relative term at best. I hope the folks at Transgaming can work out a speed boost for the game. This is nightmarish now.
