A Word From The Mrs. - That's Ms. Guru to You
Things that really matter to the Ms. include football fashion. I think the Cowboys need a makeover. The star on their helmets doesn't make me think of a cowboy, but fairies or something. Why not a spur, rope or a gun? A cow? And what is a Cleveland Brown, and how come their helmets are orange? This all sounds racist to me. I can't believe Jesse Jackson hasn't looked into this. I'm also concerned about football moms. How must all the other Atlanta Falcons player's mom's feel that the only person anyone ever talks about is Michael Vick. I'll bet Cam Newton's mom wants to hear his name once or twice. Cam who, you ask? You'll never know because he's on the Atlanta Vick's football team. I'll add, the same Atlanta Vicks that the Buccaneers sent home for the playoffs last weekend.
One more thing that matters to me, before I get to those 16 things that matter to you - the Ms. Guru picks. Tony Dungy. I am thankful for the NFL world's response to the Dungy family tragedy this last week. I have been touched to read of the hundreds of NFL names who turned up at the funeral. I am awed by Tony's words at his son's funeral, that preached a crystal clear gospel presentation and a very clear message to fathers and role models everywhere. Here is a man that people can truly look to as a hero.
Here are the aforementioned 'that's-Ms.-Guru-to-you' locks for week 17 - and as the Guru says, you take them to the bank! Chargers over Broncos; Giants over Raiders; Jets over Bills (because Herman Edwards is a really good coach); Cam Newtons team over Panthers; Steelers over Lions; Colts over Cardinals; Patriots over Dolphins; Chiefs over Bengals; Ravens over Browns; Bucs over Saints; 49ers over Texans (in front of 77 fans); Jaguars over Titans; Bears over Vikings; Redskins over Eagles; Cowboys over Rams.
