>Well, I thank God that today is finally coming to an end, it was a very good day indeed. Not only did I get up early and prepare my turkey for roasting (that’s right, I roasted a turkey today. I missed out on Thanksgiving because of my work schedule), took care of the outside of the house and the Giants beat the Jaguars 24 -20 and the Bears beat the Eagles 31-26. I couldn’t have asked for a better day!
Here are a few pictures from outside the house with the Christmas Decorations glowing, I still have a few more to put out.
It’s NFL week 13 and the Giants playoff hopes hang by a thread, a loss to Dallas Cowboys this week would all but seal the Giants fate.
So it is a bit disheartening to see that Princess the Prognosticating Camel of Popcorn Park Zoo, has chosen the Cowboys this week to all but end the Giants season.
As Princess explains “… things have changed, college teams tackle better than the Giants are now, so how are they supposed to stop the Cowboys running backs? And the Giant offense, they need somebody to wake them up! Hey, how about we plan a road trip, get me up to their practices and I’ll shake them up. But unless I get up there before Sunday, Dallas is winning this one…”
It hurts to admit that she may be right but honestly, I don’t know who is having a worse season the Giants or Princess.
Princess’s record for this season is once again at .500, W7 – L7
For this week, Princess the Camel is doubling-down and picking picking two teams to win on Sunday after her pick of the Jets came up short in the final seconds against the Jaguars last week.
For some reason Princess’s handler John seems to want to stick with local teams this week even though her choices for the New York teams haven’t worked out very well so far this season.
In the first of her picks this week, Princess has chosen the New England Patriots to beat the Jets in the early game in New England, then changes gears and picks the Giants to clip the wings of the Falcons as the swoop down into Giants Stadium.
When questioned about her pick’s Princes responded ” Well, if the NE coach doesn’t make any blunders like he did last week in the loss to the Colts they should roll over the Jets. The Giants – I hope they learned a lesson from the Jets and used their extra week off to get their act together and prepare for the Falcons.”.
Well Princess, so do I.
Princess’s predictions now stand at an even .500 , 5-5 for the season.
Last week our prognosticating camel, Princess had a rough go of it. After picking the Giants defeat the Saints down in New Orleans where the Giant’s defense was embarrassed, Princess record for predictions this year has dropped to 3-3, a .500 record.
So it is a bit of a surprise that she would go back to the well so soon and chose the Giants once again this week.
The Giants are at home this week to face the Arizona Cardinal in the Sunday night game on NBC.
Will the Giants defense have a better performance this week against the Cardinal’s Kurt Warner and his high-flying receivers, Larry Fitzgerald and Antoine Boulden?
“… I know the Cardinals have one of the better quarterbacks in Warner, and he’s real hot right now but, I don’t think the Giants coaching staff is going to let that happen two weeks in a row. I wouldn’t want to be one of the Giant defensive players this week during practice, the coaches probably have a lot of EXTRA work for them.“
At the end of this NFL Week 7, Princess predictions will be either back on the positive side for the season or slip below the .500 mark for the first time since the openning week. For my sake and those of all Giants fans, I hope that the Giants and her prediction are winners this week.
Another Football Friday is upon us which means another chance at prognostication by Princess the Camel of Popcorn Park Zoo.
If we look back to last week, Princess’s pick of the Jets turned out to be a loser thanks in part to an over-hyped defense that gave up 21 points in the 4th quarter, 31 points overall.
This week Princess stay with the local team and picks the New York Giants to defeat the New Orleans Saints in New Orleans.
“…The Saints are good, but as long as the Giants defense doesn’t pull a disappearing act like those Jats did last week, they should be fine. It’s about time for Eli to show Jeremy Shockey who’s the boss, too. I’m goin’ with the Giants in a close game.” Princess said when questioned about her pick by handler John.
So far this season Princess’s won-loss record stands at 3-2 after she failed to pick correctly last week. Will Princess start a new winning streak this week? We’ll have to wait and see. As a Giants fan I hope her prediction comes out on top.
Week 3 of the NFL season is upon us and Princess the Camel, of Popcorn Park Zoo in Lacy Township has chosen another New York team this week to defeat its opponent.
Last week as everyone should know by now, the great prognosticator of the park, picked the Jets to upset the Patriots. It was a pick that had some scratching their heads but proved to be right on.
This week Princess forecasts the Giants to swashbuckler their way through Tampa and beat the Buccaneers.
“I think coach Coughlin is going to fix that run defense this week, and Eli looks like he is finally living up to the Manning pedigree. Now on to more important things …” said Princess after picking the Giants this week.
So far this season Princess is 1-1 with her picks.
