They're back, baby: Nat. Mike and Dan shake off the sleepiness of the post (festive) season and dive into some serious sports action, along with some pretty accurate musings on player education.
In other news: The regular NFL season is TOAST – very, very burnt toast, covered in disappointing margerine for some but the jam (jelly?) of hope for others; Green Bay and the 49ers get the byes in the NFC; while the Pats and Ravens get the top two spots in the AFC; the Steelers and Bengals making the Wildcard cut, joined by the lamentable Denver Broncos from the lamentable AFC West and the banged up Texans; the NFC is made up of the Giants, the Lions, the record breaking Saints and the Falcons; Dan changes his Superbowl pick to uted surprise; basketball is back and EVERYONE is rubbish again (except Chicago and Miami); the aged Lakers have recovered from a weak start to finally get above 500; in the NHL the Winter Classic has been and gone – the New York Rangers beat fellow high flyers the Philadelphia Flyers after the first big outdoor game of the year; corrections and clarifications; your questions in mailbag; you might know where they played but what did they study? Dan's new game fills in some gaps, and much, much more...
