Tonight, as you know, the Gints play the Dallas Cowboys, the NFL version of the Yankees, who are run by a man I despise and sort of appreciate: Jerry Jones. He may represent the last pro owner in America who would rather win a game than make money. (Some owners do this temporarily, but their long term loyalty always returns to the partners.) All you need to know about Jerry Jones is that on the night he opened his billion dollar football stadium - Jerry World, it's still called - he had scantily clad ladies dancing in elevated cages, like on Shindig.
As for tonight, I have absolutely no doubt the Giants will lose because a) I've watched their games this year, and their 8-4 record is as bogus as those news stories about the pizza parlor where Hillary grooms her sex slaves. b) We beat them on opening day, and Dallas has been smarting ever since, and c) they're the Giants. This is what they do. Even in the rare Haley's Comet-like occurrences where they suddenly march to the Super Bowl, they still fill their season with pain and humiliation.
Big game tonight. I may still watch the half-season finale to The Walking Dead. I hear Rick is getting pissed.
