The Saints go marching into frickin' cold Chicago to take on Da Bears on their home frozen turf, while the Patriots travel to Indianapolis for the Manning/Brady showdown.
Meanwhile, across the pond, the British Premier League sees two classic matchups: League-leading Manchester United (57 pts) pays a visit to Arsenal (42 pts) to avenge their 1-0 defeat to the Gunners earlier this season at Old Trafford, while Chelsea (51 pts) pays a visit to Liverpool (43 pts).
Will MU striker Wayne Rooney break out of his goalscoring glut? Will Manning lead the Colts to Miami and take his first trip to the Super Bowl?
Only time and lots of body blows and dented shins will tell...but yours truly is destined not to leave his flat for the duration, stuck in front of the Sony Wega 55 watching one shape football after another.
And if you happen to be stuck immobile in front of the telly like I'll be, you'll be glad to know shortly you'll be able to buy Microsoft's new Vista operating system and have it downloaded via the Internet starting January 30.
While I doubt you'll be able to get that with pepperonis, extra sauce, or Parmesan cheese, being able to download the full OS is a first for Microsoft.
Too bad it won't be ready in time for the NFC/AFC championship weekend...it'll likely take that long to download Vista. Personal foul, fifteen yards!
And speaking of slow delivery, if you use a Web-based RSS feedreader, Hitwise just issued the latest score on who's leading the RSS delivery pack via your browser.
Bloglines outpaces the rest of the pack 3 to 1, and while Google Reader has grown respectably, it still has only 1/13 the market share of Bloglines, proving once again that Google can't own every Web 2.0 market segment...just most of them!
Me, I'll continue to live with my FeedDemon (which includes happenin' features like integrated Digging, YouTube Video Search, highlighted keywords...I can't help it, it's RSS subscription featuritis, bay-bay!)
Are you ready for some football!!!???
