Previewing the 2017-18 Green Bay Packers
The Game of Thrones/Packers connections are endless. The North vs The South, Aaron is Jon Snow, Clay is pretty much an actual wildling at this point, the list goes on. The 7th season of the show started with a bang and a line that I hope rings true for this coming season. “When people ask what happened here, tell them the north remembers” The line was fitting for young Arya Stark and hopefully will be true for the Green Bay Packers in their week 2 NFC Championship game rematch with the Atlanta Falcons and throughout the entire 2017-18 NFL season. Heading into camp it’s time to preview the season, take a look at the team figure out where they are headed this year.
First off, if you don’t understand the title, you are really young. It was the 1999 Yankees playoff theme song in which Z100 played on the radio at least once an hour. Anyway, the 2017 season has kind of been a surprise to me personally for the Yankees. After trading away most big name guys, a pretty weak starting rotation and just an overall young team, I expected the Yankees to compete but miss out of the playoffs. Boy was I wrong. As of July 28th, the New York Yankees are half a game of out first place in the division and hold a 1 game lead on the first wild card spot. But do they have enough to stay in the playoff race and make a deep run?
Football is back!! GO GIANTS!
The road to summerslam is in full effect and Jay is back to guide you through. Jay speaks on the battleground ppv, led up to Monday night raw, Kurts big announcement, UFC influx in wwe?, the latest edition of Jays ppv rewind with a new twist, and the unfortunate passing of Chester Bennington the lead singer of Linkin Park.
July 23rd, 2017 is the SmackDown exclusive “PPV” is battleground. Now first off you me ask me why I put PPV in quotes. I do think maybe 1% of the people who watch these, buy the PPV’s anymore and 99% of people are watching on the WWE Network. For this blog, I’ll call it a PPV because that is what WWE calls it. In this blog, I’ll be giving my take on each match as they are happening. I am going to do like the barstool pizza reviews and rate each match on a 1-10 scale at the end. Also, odds of a 10 are slim because if I give a 10, you can’t get any better, and there is always better. I’m excited for this PPV for multiple reasons. One reason is because of the location, being in Philly, who is known for being the rowdiest crowds. The fans in the building will let everybody know if this is a good event or not. Another reason, two of the best in the business are competing vs each other. Kevin Owens vs AJ Styles will have a 1 on 1 match for the US Title. Also, after 10 years, we will have a Punjabi Prison match! Being the final WWE PPV before Summer Slam, I expect it to be a good night. Well, I hope so.
The boys are back as a trio this week with a big show. They lead off talking about if the protective netting is needed in Major League Baseball. They then recap everything from the Mets to the yankees to the rest of the sports word. They finish off doing their really early pre-training camp NFL picks. They also remind you, you aren’t alone. This entire episode is dedicated to Linkin Park front man Chester Bennington, who sadly and tragical took his own life on July 20th.
Baseball is one of the hardest sports to predict, Even the best players have bad years. Bryce Harper was the NL MVP in 2015 and then hit .247 in 2016. You rarely see star NBA players or Elite Quarterbacks fall off like that but Bryce is back on top this year. The same goes for teams, every year there are a few teams that shock us in both a good and bad way. The Mets have obviously shocked us in a bad way along with the defending champion Cubs, who were thought to be a sure bet for the playoffs and currently find themselves on the outside looking in. The teams the Cubs are looking up at in their division and in the wild card are the good surprises of the year. The Brewers, Rockies and Diamondbacks were not looked at as power house teams in the NL but have all exceeded expectations and taken the league by storm. The quick turnaround Of these teams gives me some hope that it can be done by the Mets as well.
