Lots to watch this weekend …

Saturday
  • The Backyard Brawl – In Morgantown, they’re lining up all the couches to burn, as the #2 Mountaineers prepare to bury Pitt en route to the national championship game.
Prediction:WVU 56 - Pitt 13 (Sunday post-game edit: Oops! Nix that prediction! Congrats, Pitt)
  • #9 Oklahoma vs. #1 Missouri – #1 Mizzou hopes to overcome the Sports Illsutrated cover jinx and advance to the national title game vs. West Virginia. Otherwise, it’ll probably be Ohio State taking on the Mountaineers. Oklahoma already beat Missouri, 41-31, at Norman, giving the Tigers their only loss so far and holding them to their lowest point total of the season. Mizzou has scored more than 40 points eight times this year. This game, for the Big 12 Conference title, will be played at San Antonio.
Sunday
  • Jets (2-9) vs. Dolphins (0-11) – The winless Fish are favored in this matchup, which this article calls “A Voyage of the Awful”. Yeah, and the Steelers lost to the Jets and very nearly lost to the Dolphish. Yikes.
  • Cinci-Pittsburgh – If the Steelers lose this game, we’re looking uphill at the very distinct possibility of a three game losing streak, with New England and Jacksonville to follow the Bengals.
Monday
  • New England vs. Baltimore – Looking forward to Ray Lewis going berserk as New England runs up the score.

I say screw couches, they should just burn the whole state of West Virginia...except Wheeling. I dig slots...(kidding about this burning stuff of course)

I like West Virginia. "Wild 'n Wonderful." And that's just the women!

As for slots, once again West Virginia is way ahead of Pennsylvania, as the Post-Gazette reports today that they're going to have TABLE GAMES up and running before Christmas. Meanwhile, they haven't gotten close to putting a shovel in the ground for the new slots parlor in Pittsburgh. Red tape, bureacracy, delays, etc.

Which state do you think has more hunting weapons (guns, bows, brass knuckles, you know) per capita? PA or WV?

Joey Porter’s Pit Bulls said...

Hoo-boy, that's a tough one. I gotta go with Pennsylvania, per capita. Fuckers here are nuts. Plus, more yuppes here who can afford that shit.

Cotter said...

I think the fact that you said PA yuppies are buying guns just about says it all.

PS - When I was in High School, I used to get woken up at 6AM every morning because dudes were hunting geese across the street from my parents house...PA loves them some guns...

Hey Cotter-

You better be careful, Mista!

I'm a native-born Mountaineer AND a resident of Pittsburgh AND i hunt ANNNDDD I own guns.

So be careful about yer politically-correct-ish-ness and redneck-hatin'. Cuz i resemble that remark...

PS- Love your work, JPPBs!

Go Mounties!
Go Stillers!

Psh, no way man, I'd never disrespect West Virginny. I love WV.

People of the interwebs - hear me now - West Virginia is ok by me. And I don't hunt, but I don't hold that against anyone who does.

Go Mountaineers...

Thanks, Tobiathan. Ya can't be a Mountaineer and not carry firearms -- armed to the teeth!

56-13??????At least you got the 13 right.
You're better off sticking with the NFL!
