I was aware in a general sense that the NFC West sucks. But on Sunday I was on a Houston-BWI flight featuring DirectTV which I naturally paid for in hopes of watching some football only to discover that the version of DirectTV the flight was carrying was featuring an NFC West game for some unfathomable reason. And only now am I becoming fully aware of the looming disaster we’re facing.
To make a long story short, if the Seattle Seahawks beat the St Louis Rams on Sunday, then a team with a losing record will make it into the NFL playoffs. Instead of calling the Eagles owner about Michael Vick or energy efficiency or whatever, Obama needs to be huddling with the Seahawks owner to get them to throw the game.
