Catch That Friday Feeling

The first work week of the 2018 is coming to a close but not without that Last Night’s Game Friday feeling.

 

Spirit fingers,

The Last Night’s Game Team

 

PS - This Friday's Tailgate Treat is an easy one that even our team can make. Break out the slow cooker and the chicken wings because it's going to be a party. 


Tennis

If you’ve ever spoken too soon. We were so excited for Serena Williams’ return to the Australian Open, one year after she won it while pregnant. Yesterday we found out she’s not ready yet and she withdrew from the tournament. Another one of tennis’ best, Andy Murray also dropped out of the tournament this week with a bum right hip. Crikey!

 

NFL (National Football League)

When you're rewarded for your hard work. The NFL playoffs start this weekend with the ultimate goal of reaching the Super Bowl on February 4. We'll see playoff action in Los Angeles for the first time since 1986 as the L.A. Rams host the Atlanta Falcons. PLAYOFF PREVIEW

 

Overtime

Get that #FridayFeeling this morning with more cuteness than one should see in a week. The starting lineup for this year’s Animal Planet Puppy Bowl has been released. Team Fluff and Team Ruff are made up of shelter dogs that hope to be adopted. Talk about the ultimate “tail”gate. Here’s the cutest lineup you’ve ever seen. PICS

 

Sideline stat

This weekend the Jacksonville Jaguars are playing in their first home playoff game since 2000 against a Buffalo Bills team that hasn't made the playoffs since 1999. They’re so excited (maybe almost too excited) that their black, teal and gold exuberance has spread to the game day food. The team is offering very appetizing burgers with teal buns, teal ice cream and even teal beer. Try to refrain from reciting green eggs and ham.

 

Coaches’ corner

Do you have weekend plans? If you are in Cleveland, you do now. The Cleveland Browns are celebrating their perfect season with a parade on Saturday. Although it’s not the kind of perfect season you’d think. The parade celebrates the winless, 0-16 (wins-losses) regular season for the team - the second time in NFL history that a team has had a winless season.

 

Heads up!

Alabama and Georgia will battle it out for the the College Football National Championship on Monday. Brush up on the Five Things To Know About Monday's National Championship Game so you're in the know for the weekend chatter.
