NFL Week #17 Picks

Sadly another NFL regular season comes to a close. Equally sadly, my Lions will once again be watching the playoffs on T.V. Normally I could look forward to cranking up my Red Wings viewing, but it appears that the NHL and NHLPA are insisting on playing Russian Roulette with a fully loaded revolver. Oh well. Here are my final picks for the season: Jets, Patriots, Bengals, Vikings, Panthers, Ravens, Texans, Bills, Packers, Lions, Seahawks, Bucs, Chiefs, Broncos, Jaguars, Giants. Some of these games are very hard to pick since the best teams are resting players for the playoffs. Others are hard to pick because the games will just be awful.

The Master comments: Eeyore's picks: Ravens, Steelers, Panthers, Packers, Texans, Patriots, Eagles, Jets, Titans, Vikings, Cardinals, Seahawks, Raiders, Broncos, Chargers, Cowboys.

At least my Lions made a smart move by getting big ol' Shaun Rogers signed to a huge contract before he became a free agent. Next year, the Lions are officially out of excuses. They must make the playoffs.

Pondering the Imponderable

Can I just say that this is the first post I've made in 2005?

Oh, and before I forget: Go Blue!

Happy New Year!

A happy and blessed New Year to you and yours from the staff of The Haus. Have a good time tonight, but if you are drinking, please take a cab or get a designated driver. I'm going to be spending a relatively quiet New Year's Eve at home. Too much work to do the rest of the weekend. Have one for A.T. Hun!

Microsoft to Back Off on Passport

Apparently Microsoft has finally come to the conclusion that its Passport scheme was something that no one wanted. So they are going to stop asking web sites to use it. I have done everything in my power to make sure that I never had a Passport account, despite some persuading by relatives. I don't trust Microsoft to secure the world's largest hunk of lead, to say nothing of my credit card information. Hopefully this will at least slow down their plans for world domination. Thanks Slashdot.
