ANd the Winner of The 2009 NFC North Division is…….Da Bears!!

In a huge move to instill hope for Chicago Bear fans, the Bears acquired Jay Cutler for Kyle Orton, two first round draft picks, plus a third round pick and one more supplemental draft pick.
The Beras sighned some protection for Cutler also, by snagging Orlando Pace.
This move helps Oakland and San Diego also. With Cutler out of the division, and Kansas City still rebuilding, look for the Chargers and the Raiders to slug it out for the AFC West.
I had picked the Vikings to repeat as that division winner, but now i chose the Bears.
Philadelphia and New York should be near the top of the NFC East, as Dallas is not looking like they van keep up. Washington also has not made enough moves to keep up with the offenses off Philadelphia and New York.
New England looks very good in the AFC East with Miami perhaps snatvhing another wild card entry.
Pittsburgh should win their division once more, with Baltimore grabbing the wild card.
In the NFC South, look for New Orleans to battle with Atlanta for that division. Carolina will have a drop off in production this season and Tampa Bay looks to be dreadful.
Indianapolis and Houston will compete strongly for the AFC Central, while Tennessee may be in the mix also. This may be the closest contested division in football this coming season. Look for Houston to really step up in 2009.
Congratulations to Chicago for finally landing a franchise quarterback.

early april in the PGA

this week the PGA Tour heads for Humble Texas and the Shell Houston Open. Johnson Wagner will defend his title from last season.
It will be interesting to see if he can play well, as their have been no repeat champions very often with the exception of Tiger Woods.
Tiger won last week, with a thrilling birdie putt on 18, in Tiger like fashion.
This week will be hard to predict a winner as Tiger is not playing.
My fantasy team this week will include Camilo Villegas,Rory McElroy, J J Henry and last years winner, Johnson Wagner.
On the bench in case of missed cuts or poor play will be Anthony Kim, Lucas Glover, Scott Piercy, and Charles Howell III.
Next week at the Masters, i will predict Tiger gets another green jackets and edges closer to his goal of 17 major victories to overtake Jack Nicklaus and his 16 majors.
If Tiger wins at Augusta next week, no field will be safe this season from the roar of the Tiger.
Maybe this season may shape into his finest ever. Wait and see.
Thomas Moreland

Incredible dog! Don’t miss reading the Pet’s 10 commandments at the bottom.My kind of dog!

The K9 above is Brutus, a military K9 at McChord. He’s huge - part Boxer and part
British Bull Mastiff and tops the scales at 200 lbs. His handler took the picture.
Brutus is running toward me because he knows I have some Milk Bone treats, so
he’s slobbering away! I had to duck around a tree just before he got to me in case
he couldn’t stop, but he did. Brutus won the Congressional Medal of Honor last
year from his tour in Iraq . His handler and four other soldiers were taken hostage
by insurgents. Brutus and his handler communicate by sign language and he
gave Brutus the signal that meant ‘go away but come back and find me’. The
Iraqis paid no attention to Brutus. He came back later and quietly took out one
guard at one door and another guard at another door. He then jumped against
one of the doors repeatedly (the guys were being held in an old warehouse) until
it opened. He went in and untied his handler and they all escaped. He’s the first
K9 to receive this honor. If he knows you’re ok, he’s a big old lug and wants to sit in
your lap. Enjoys the company of cats.

K-9 Congressional Medal of Honor Winner

Thought you’d find this interesting. Talk about animal intelligence and bonding
with humans!

Remember that they can’t do a lot of things for themselves and that they depend on you to make their life a quality life!

A PET’S TEN COMMANDMENTS. ……..

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work,
your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.

5. Talk to me. Even if I don’t understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking
to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose
not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be
bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or
! my heart might be getting old or weak.
9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can’t bear to watch.
Don’t make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because
I love you so.

~Take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them.
Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God’s critters.
~Now please pass this on to other pet owners. We do not have to wait for Heaven,
to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs!

PGA Weekly Report

On Thursday March the fifth play will start at the Honda Classic, held in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida at the PGA National Resort-Champion Course.
Tiger Woods will skip this one, but we should see him later this month in the WGA-CA Championship, at the Blue Monster of Doral.
Geoff Ogilvy won the match play event for the second time of his career. He will be looking for a win in a major now to perhaps lock up a PGA player of the year award.
In the Mayacopa Classic played in Mexico, the winner is Mark Wilson. This gets him an invite to all the majors this season, and a tour exemption for a while. A win is big in the PGA.This opens many doors for career oppurtunities.
It was a good week of golf action. Remember, even though Tiger lost, he was six under par in only 34 holes. Look for him to be in contention soon. Make some putts and have a great week. Thomas Moreland

Free Agency in the NFL : Week One

Albert Hayneswoth , signing with the Washington Redskins, for seven years and $100,000,000 dollars was the biggest deal of the opening round of free aganecy.
Along wirh DeAngelo Hall, Washington really shores up the defense.
The offense really needs some help now, to get this team to compete for a Super Bowl.
Dallas picke up a decent back up in Jon Kitna, and this should help them if Tony Romo goes down in 2009.
Mean while in Philadelphia, the Eagles let Brian Dawkins escape to the Denver Broncos along with Correll Buckhalter.
They did sign big Stacy Andrews to help protect McNabb, but I am still waiting for them to make a move rergarding a good running back and a big time receiver.
Kelleh Winslow signed in Tampa Bay. They are rebuilding as stated by the GM, and i don’t see how this move helped them in the least. They had a tight end.
Kerry Collins remained a Titan, but will have just average numbers for a couple of years and is not an elite quarterback.
New England signed Fred Taylor, and this was a solid move by Beliceks team.
The big news also was Matt Cassell and Mike Vrabek going to Kansas City for a second round pick. What a steal Denver got in this deal.

More to come next week. New England, Denver, and Washington, get passing grades for this week. Philadelphia, Arizona, and Chicago, D’s for dumbness. Sign Warner, you numbskulls, and shame on Chicago for not going after Cassell.

Your 2009 NFL Preview: Predictions by NFL Mikee

Welcome to the state of the NFL before free agengy and the draft. Rookies don’t make an impact for at least 8 games, so here ’s what will go down in the NFL for 2009.

AFC North: We will start with the division that prduced our Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers. Look for more of the same in 2009 from the Steelers. This will be a tough team to beat, and I am picking them to again win this division.

The Ravens are bounf to improve, but if they lose Ray Lewis, who knows. Joe Flacco can only take this  so far, and I think they are doomed to another wild card, maybe and an an early playoff exit.

Cleveland will make it to 8-8 or perhaps even 9-7 with the emergence of Brady Quinn. Cincinatti is doomed to last in this divison once more.

AFC  East: Tom Brady and Matt Cassell will ead this team back to the top of this divison. Miami will be competitive, but have a small letdown from their resurgence last season. Buffalo and The Jets will have a very tough time keeping up with these teams in 2009.

AFC South: Look for improvement by the Houston Texans in 2009 as they finally get over the hump. Indy will be right there, with a healthy Peyton Manning. Tennessee will have a hard time living up to last season, and the Jags bring up the rear once more.

AFC West: San Diego will still be the team to beat in this weak division. Denver must get used to a new system and that could be troublr in the mile high city this fall. Oakland will improve vastly and surprise plenty of people. Kansas City will have a rough time staying anywhere near San Diego in the standings for the season.

NFC East:This will be a really interesting division again this season. I think with some free agengy help, the Eagles will be dominant in 2009. Dallas has too many qusetions and too much drama, as usual.

Washington’s offense was anemic at times last season, and i see no moves to improve this dismal outlook. One for year for Jim Zorn, and that might be it fot the former quarterback.The Giants will have a good running attack, but must get help for Eli to keep hold of this division. Who gets Harrison, or Boldin will win this battle.

NFC North: minnesots wins by default. Chicago will never makes the playoffs or win this division with just a good quarterback. They need a great quarterback. We will ever see this in our lifetime? Green  Bay has big defensive issue s to compete effectively in the black and blue division of the NFL.

NFC South: Change is brewing here. Look for Atlanta and New Orleans to compete for this division title. Carolina will have a falling off from last season, and Tampa Bay is droppiong too many quality players to have a chance this season. Derrick Brooks cut baffles me, especailly with $70,000,000 below the salary cap.

NFC  West: The Rams and Seahawks will not win many games yet. This leaves San Francisco to keep up with Arizona. Won ‘t happen in 2009. Kurt Warner signs for two more seasons and  this offense will continue to produce.

AFC Division Winners will be New Engalnd, Pittsburgh,Indianapolis, and San Diego. Wild Cards, Ravens and Texans.

NFC  Division Winners: Eagles, Falcons, Vikings, and Cardinals. Wild Cards,Giants ans Saints.    Thomas[ NFL Mikee] Moreland

feb sports shorts

The top story is Tiger Woods’s return to the PGA Tour, and a first round win in match play.

In baseball news, Alex Rodriguez homered in the Yankees spring training opener. A-Rod needs a good season to quiet down his critics. and hopefully erase the memory of past mistakes he has made. We all know by now, what those are.

The Red Sox also opened spring training by beating Boston College 6-1. This must be thrilling for the college teams participating in these games.
The Minnesota Twins beat Boston in a split squad game in Fort Myers Florida on Feb 25th to open spring ball.

In the NBA , Stephon Marbury was bought out of his contract by the Knicks, which frees Marbury to negociate with the Celtic’s. This good be good news for Laker fans if indeed , Marbury is the cancer many feel he is.

The Chicago Bulls with their new look, thumped Orlando 120-102. Tim Thomas,Brad Miller, and John Salmons all contributed very nicely in that game.

NBA playoffs loom large and here’s what up with the good teams.
Boston is 46-12. Everyone else in the Atlantic Conference sucks.
Cleveland is 44-11. Everyone else in the Central conference sucks.
Orlando is 41-16. Everyone else in the Southeast Conference sucks.
Out West, the Lakers are 47-10 for the best record in the NBA. Everyone else in the West sucks.

March madness is coming in college basketball. Let’s make a bold prediction.
Final FOUR, Pittsburgh,UConn, Oklahoma and Noth Carolina.
Memphis, Louisville, Mich State, and Marquette are all pretty good , and could knock off one of the big boys. And, of course Duke, may get lucky!

The big names in the sports world had their moments too.

Charles Barkley will spend 5 days in jail, pay over 2000 dollars in fines and have to attend alcohol classes.
I applaud Sir Charles for manning up , pleading guilty , and assuming responsibility for a huge mistake in judgment.

Marvin Harrison was released by Indy this week. He would fit nicely in the Eagles scheme of things, i bet.

Donovan Mcnabb is waiting to sign his contract extension in an effort to get Andt Reid and the GM to step up and help the offense.

And finally in Nascar , Matt Kenseth won his second race in a row in California this weekend. I watched the entire race aLmost before dozing off. My local television stations all converted to digital, and my converer box is not working yet. All i get is Fox. Have a great end of Feb, Talk to ya soon. Thomas

Thomas Moreland, Sportswriter

hey everyone, It’s Thomas Moreland aka NFL Mikee . I write sports articles for people to enjoy and comment on. We will try to do a little bit of everything until football season starts back up. Then we will get into pro and college football matchups and rankings, as well as predictions on points spreads and winners for the 2009 season. You will also see a bit of golf articles as i love golf. I’m a Laker fan, Like the San Francisco Giants, and 49er’s and Steelers in football. I don t do hockey. lol.All sports are interesting in some aspects, however. I am sick with a cold this week, but will be up and writing very soon, Stay tuned, and have a great last week in Feb 2009. Thomas
