What a show of defense for the Buffalo Bills to stop the offense of Aaron Rogers of the Green Bay Packers. We lost 21-13. We are now under the Detroit Lions for first place in our football conference. A showdown against the Detroit Lions in Green Bay will be coming soon. Support our Green Bay Packers Football Team.
Christmas Eve is only a week away. Now is the time to finish your Christmas shopping. Many stores will be running out of special items for sale. The items on sale after Christmas, will be the items that nobody wanted enough to purchase before the holiday. You may be able to get some great items on sale after the holiday, but more likely that item will no longer be available to purchase. Store only purchase so many of each item to sell during Christmas. When the supply is gone, then you are out of luck. Most stores will not reorder many of these items. If there is something that you really want now, then go out and try to buy it before it is too late.
The Bay View Historical Society has a fundraising opening of the Avalon Theater this week. Three days are involved in this special event. On Monday, Tuseday and Wednesday the Avalon Theater will open for the first time in several years. We look forward to this grand opening. I am hoping to view the "new" Avalon Theater for its first reopening for several years.
I would give you the highlights of the Wisconsin Badger/Ohio State Buckeyes game, but Wisconsin had no highlights. Ohio State won 59 to 0. It was a miracle if Wisconsin even got a first down. Ohio State wiped out the Badgers. If there ever was a onesided game, this was it. I wish Wisconsin luck in their Bowl game on New Years Day at 11 am. Maybe they will recover from all of their mistakes against Ohio State and possibly win a game. I wish them luck.
On Monday night, the Green Bay Packers beat the Atanta Falcons in a close game. In what at first seemed like a shootout by the Green Bay Packers, the Atanta Falcons made a great comeback and almost beat us. No team in the NFL is to be taken lightly. Any NFL team can beat any other team at any time. When you are expecting an easy game, you might be very supprised to lose to a weaker team. Don't take any team for granted. Play each game as they come and don't just plan for the next game and overlook the present team. Confidence can be deceiving. Look at San Francisco at Oakland. This was a great upset. Don't count your chickens before they hatch. You can be deceived as an understatement. On Sunday we go to Buffalo to play our game. Nothing is automatic. Count each game as a challenge. Have fun watching football.
