Dallas Cowboys lose to NY Giants and out of playoffs

If you were hoping the Dallas Cowboys would make it to the playoffs then you will have to wait until next season. Dallas lost to the New York Giants with a score of 19 to 23 eliminating them from playoff contention.

The offense was absolutely terrible the first half of the game for the Cowboys. It seemed as if they couldn’t catch Daltons throws , Dalton getting sacked several times and when the offense finally caught a ball , they would make it a yard or two. The only thing keeping the Cowboys on the scoreboard was their kicker Zuerlien as he made three of his 3 field goal attempts. Then it was half time.

The beginning half looked a little more promising as Eziekel made a 62 yard drive and scored a Touchdown. Elliotts game this season has been a little off as he struggled to complete catches and score touchdowns . He has not been the usual Elliott we knew from the Ohio State days and his first two years with the Cowboys that have been phenomenal. Seeing this touchdown from him made me think back to his Ohio State game days when his “feed me “ actually felt like his road to promises of giving you a game you will remember .

The Cowboys were slowly catching up to the Giants as their offense started to wake up as they were coming to the realization that they need this win to have a chance in the playoffs. Then at the last final minute of the game Dalton throws an interception and at that second all of the Cowboys fans knew it was the end of the season for them.

All hopes of being in the playoffs next season will depend if Dak Prescott , who is a free agent , will get signed back to the Cowboys next season . After Daks injury hit is beyond clear that Dak can get this team to the playoffs. As I watched the Cowboys struggle all season I noticed the offense plays better when Dak is throwing the ball. Eziekel plays better when Dak is out there and so does Cooper.

For anyone who is curious who won the game between the Pittsburg Steelers and the Cleveland Browns, the Cleveland Browns took that game tonight as Ben Rothlisberger sat out and some of Pittsburgh tougher players sat out as well since the Steelers have already clenched their spot into the playoffs. Easy win for Cleveland tonight.

Better luck next year Dallas !

Happy New Year !!!! 2021 begins !

Goodbye 2020!

That was a rough year. It started off with Kobe Bryant and his daughters death from a helicopter crash. Then Covid 19 wrecked the entire world. I had a family member end up on life support ( thank goodness he is ok now ). The unemployment rate is the highest it has ever been ( or pretty close ). It has been a year of disappointment and grief.

The nation is STILL waiting on a much needed stimulus check and we finally got the orange head kicked out of the office. So , what can we expect from 2021?

As the world eagerly awaits to see how the covid vaccination works ( and prays the long term affects isn’t massive ) and the United States sees a new President , we are praying for better times.

I know I have a few things I am working on for the new year. One is to look for a new job. I need something less stressful this year. I am also planning on exercising again. I have not been to a gym in almost a year now.

I also have a few projects lined up . I have a few places I want to visit this year if we can ever get Covid controlled. I have a feeling we will still be in the same predicament this summer as it will take time to see how well the vaccination works. I think we will be wearing masks for a long time to come.

I wish everyone a happy and healthy 2021 !

Merry Christmas !!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas. This year is a little different as we are still facing a pandemic. Visiting my family has been on hold this holiday. I decided not to travel or visit anyone this holiday to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19 or possibly infecting others incase I am an unknown carrier. I have mailed or delivered my gifts and making this Christmas a little more quiet.

I am still blasting Mariah Carey’s Christmas albums ( I have both ). I will be quietly working on my podcast tomorrow and taking time to call family and watch my favorite Christmas movies such as the Grinch !

Hoping everyone is healthy and staying safe for the holidays ! Merry Christmas !!!

Also , LeBron James will be playing tonight on ABC against the Mavericks 8pm Eastern time . GO LAKERS !

LeBron James extends contract for two more seasons with LA Lakers !!!

I am so excited to see LeBron for another 3 seasons !!! Just when I thought 2020 was over and I couldn’t possibly have anything good come from this ….. I get the news that LeBron will remain a Laker until summer of 2023.

As if winning his 4th championship wasn’t enough glory for me , I get to watch him another 3 seasons !

I have also learned that Anthony Davis has signed 5 more seasons with the LA Lakers which means I get 3 more seasons of the dynamic duo. I honestly didn’t think anyone could have my heart like Kyrie and LeBron did on those joyous nights of watching them win that Cleveland championship that I will never forget. However , Anthony has more then proven he is a perfect fit to play right along with the best NBA player we have ever seen in history. ( sorry Jordan fans ).

Cant wait for this horrible year of 2020 to be behind us and I look forward to a new year where I feel some big changes coming my way. I have a great feeling about LeBron in 2021.

I am also excited to see Kyrie and Kevin Durant playing together with the Brooklyn Nets. If they can stay injury free that is. Both of those players seem to be on the injured list quite a bit. However , I will be checking them out as well !

The beginning of the NBA season starts this Wednesday, December 22! So make sure you check out the LA Lakers take on the LA Clippers as the seasons first game ( post pre season ). Go LAKERS !!!!

Holiday Quarantine !

How has your holiday been affected from COVID-19? Have you been isolated from friends and family ? Has it been hard getting out of bed in the morning because the feeling of your life’s purpose has diminished ?

This Thanksgiving I have decided to spend it without the gatherings of large family groups. I didn’t want to risk getting the infection or spreading it to others. I have decided to take this time for self reflection. Am I happy where I am right now in life ? Do I feel like I need a change to grow ?

The answer is no and yes. I am not happy where I am in life. I feel like a much needed change needs to happen ……soon. I feel like I’m stuck in limbo between doing what will make me happy versus what will surely affect others. That is what life is all about right ??? Chances ?

I am currently working on my third book. Another haunting thriller that takes a few twist and turns. As I sit here and write this I am thinking how many of my family members are unsupportive of my writing. None of them read much anyways. So when I get excited about my new book I feel like my friends and coworkers are 100 times more supportive and excited then my own family. I think my cats are more excited and supportive then my family. Sometimes I feel like the outsider in my family. I feel like I have different passions in life. I love the creative process of writing. I love the make believe of it all. I love the designing of the covers , the editing process and when the finished product is presented to me I sometimes take a step back and look at it , not believing what I just accomplished.

I also love to travel. I have been to almost every state in the US ( Maine being next on my radar after quarantine is over ). I love hiking in the parks and tasting new foods . I absolutely love road trips. I love driving peacefully on the highway with all the windows down and music blaring.

A girl can daydream for now cant she ?

Getting back to this quarantine holiday. I am also thinking of self isolating for Christmas. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year . However , the virus is increasing heavily by numbers every day. I don’t think I want to risk catching it or passing it to others for one night of fun. I think this year will be a drive to everyone’s house to exchange gifts . Hopefully next Christmas will be a little more festive.

In fact , as I was driving home after work yesterday I was thinking of what I was doing at this same time last year. Last year I was having Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family and Black Friday shopping with my sister. After our shopping spree we went to Applebeees for a late night snack and stayed out until 2 am. Then a few weeks later we went to Atlantic City to see Mariah Carey’s Christmas show. I had planned on seeing this years Mariah Christmas show but it was never planned. Thanks Covid. This virus has really put a damper on life.

However , it has given me more time to complete my third book.

I hope everyone is staying safe. Continue to social distance yourself , stay away from large crowds , wear a mask , wash hands , and continue to keep Lysol as your best friend. Hope everyone had a great holiday !
