Have to admit I completely missed the news when it happened but Sam Spence died in 2016.
I love those old NFL Films scores he composed and I think he played a huge role in the utter watch-ability of that stuff and by extension in giving the NFL some gravitas that helped give it the cultural resonance it has today.
"(...) there is no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and that the human tragedy, or the human irony, consists in the necessity of living with the consequences of actions performed under the pressure of compulsions so obscure we do not and cannot understand them.” - Hugh MacLennan, The Watch that Ends the Night
Who does everyone got this weekend? For me it's Oakland, Steelers, Packers and Lions
I would have picked the Texans, Seahawks and Steelers easily. This game between the Packers and Giants will be good and close to call. Giants could upset, though so far all 3 home games won their games.
I'm rooting for the Packers though for Spanky and since I hate the Giants! Would love to watch a game someday at Lambo!
Well I like to pick the underdogs. So far it has been brutal to watch these games. I have no doubt that Rodgers will bring this game close and hopefully win.
Raiders, and Dolphins no QB esp Raiders...Lions Stafford was hurt.
Let's go Falcons
Anyone hear word on Nelson... he's a massive loss if he doesn't come back in? The Giants have dominated much of this first half and the Packers have the lead, very fortunate.
It was just updated as questionable.
Oh My God... Rodgers is a fucking Boss!!!
Nooooo... now Montgomery's hurt.
Good, he's fine.

I kind of like the Texans to win the AFC at 50/1, feels too juicy to not place a small bet on.
