@Sammy - I really like Shane, but Manny is going to destroy him. Shane's been past his prime for a few years now and is coming off two crappy performances. If the fight was 5 years ago, I'd lean towards Mosely.

Cool, actually it was a Harpoon IPA but I forgot we weren't in the three column box we normally run with, since Iyaz was traveling. I wouldn't have tipped the glass on camera had I known! I thought since Marco was talking the shot was on him. Woops! Haha! Well, can't blame a man for having a cold one after hours. :)

I've never heard of Harpoon.... but the texture of that beer looked similar to Rickards Red.... one of my favourite dark/red ales! Will check this harpoon out over weekend when i'm stocking up for the game

ROFL... (tips to glass to you too). I'm betting Dave's cheeks were more red from THIS FREAKING ICE PLANET HOTH THAT HAS DESCENDED UPON US. But, the drinking theory is good too.

LOL at Marco's "battery as a UPS comment". I've seen many systems like that, but never really thought about it that way until he said it out loud.

I also like Marco's philosophy on the SB and parties. Unless it's MMA, I don't care about it.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Totally agree, and I will say this , even though Manny's fight vs Clottey wasn't his best,  it was amazing to see a boxer (Manny) maintain such high levels of energy during 12 rounds and throw 1,231 punches . I had more respect for Pac Man after that fight.

   Now, talking about  Pacquiao vs Mayweather, I say Manny because I solidly believe there's a fear factor from Mayweather towards Manny. So if they would have fought in 2010, it would have been game over for Floyd.

I am with Dave here I think the Packers are gonna clean house here. I pick Greenbay by 7. Don't get me wrong here the pitt is tough as well, and Rothlesberger even though I don't like him much personally is a hell of a QB. I think they will walk in somewhat confident where the Pack and Aaron Rodgers are hungry, as well as good. As far as it goes my Falcons though they were going to a church picnic, that was sad after a great season too.

@Sammy - I couldn't even make it through the Clottey fight. The commentating was as horrible as the fight.

As for Manny vs. Mayweather, I have the opposite opinion. I think Floyd blows Manny out of the water with ease. There have been so many catch-weights and stipulations with Manny's recent fights, you could almost put an asterisk next to every win. The he goes and makes the Mosely fight after Shane comes of his two worst performances in years.

Looks like we should be in for a battle - royal this year with 'da Super Bowl as much as it's been born into me I got pick 'da Packers by10. Mistakes are going to be costly and they should reflect the outcome of this one.
