It's Christmas Eve and before I give my picks for Week 16, I wanted to point out some things that are making this a Merry Christmas.
-24/7 Rangers/Flyers. Nuff said.
-The first-place New York Rangers after beating the Flyers last night. Still a long way to go
-Seton Hall basketball at 11-1 as they enter Big East play. A legit NCAA chance if they take care of business in-conference
-Watching marathons of A Christmas Story and Home Alone. And if Scrooged and Christmas Vacation are also on, then the only NBA I'll end up watching is the Knicks tomorrow.
-Knicks basketball, who look prime to do some damage (and by damage, I mean win a playoff series perhaps at the very least) this year. NBA and I is a mixed bag, but I do come home to the Knicks.
-Having Christmas Eve off despite working in a retail store. Of course, I still have to shop today, so that's not a overwhelming positive.
-Giants vs Jets today, which means oh so much for both for the first time, probably since the first ever Giants/Jets game.
And on that note, here are my quick picks for Week 16. Happy holidays to everyone and enjoy Christmas Eve football. (Home team in CAPS)
