Predicting the 2013 NFL Playoffs: Championship Round

Predicting the 2013 NFL Playoffs: Championship Round

So now I suppose I don’t look so crazy after going 3-1 last weekend, including calling the 49ers road win at Carolina. Almost 4-0 if some breaks had went my way with the Chargers.

But still, don’t use my picks as betting advice.

Predicting the 2013 NFL Playoffs: Divisional Round

I really hope you didn’t lose money on my picks last week. It’s not like I didn’t warn you. Again, these picks are solely based on a couple stats and the fact I watched NFL RedZone all season.

Looking Back On: T.I. – Swagga Like Us (Feat. Kanye West, Jay Z & Lil’ Wayne)

Looking Back On: T.I. – Swagga Like Us

In 2008, this was a big deal. Jay Z, Kanye, T.I., and Wayne all on the same track?! The internet was going nuts.

Young Thack - Addicted To Excitement / B Hyphen - Bebop & Rocksteady

Once upon a time, I set out to do a mixtape with Thack. We started a few things, released a few collaborations, but nothing concrete was ever completed due to our contrasting schedules. In November, Thack decided he was moving to pursue new music opportunities. I'm still in Morgantown of course, but before he left, he gave me the two tracks we did when we first tried to make a project together.

"Addicted To Excitement" takes the "Don't Like (Remix)" instrumental, but the comparisons stop there. Thack unleashes a vicious first verse and a hypnotic hook that makes you forget the original versions.

I included a verse I did over "New God Flow" and simply titled it "Bebop & Rocksteady". You'll note from the opening line that Thack was supposed to be on the song as well. It's only 16 bars but I'm quite proud of the verse and wanted to share.

With Thack's career on the rise and mine winding down (at least for now) with a baby on the way, I didn't want to let music this good set on our hard drives. Maybe Thack and I will get to do that mixtape someday. But if not, enjoy what might have been from a Thack & Hyphen project.

Predicting the 2013 NFL Playoffs: Wild Card Round

I took a stab at predicting Wild Card Weekend. I went 1-3. Read the bloody mess for yourself.
I’ve watched a lot of football this season. More than I have my entire life (thanks RedZone). While I’m no Tom Deja, I figured I’d take a shot at picking the winners of this Wild Card weekend round of games. May the Tebow be with me.

Warning: Don’t bet based on these picks please.
