Football & Hockey Youth Movement

Dallas over Minnesota. Yes, I am picking the "young Romeo" (Tony Romo, 29 years old) to beat the "old fart", Brett Favre (40 years old) tomorrow as there are four more NFL playoff games this weekend. The Cowboys' head coach, Wade Phillips, coached Buffalo from 1998 - 2002.

Do you remember Dallas taking Minnesota's hockey team in 1993?

Last Saturday, Peyton Manning won his record fourth NFL MVP award. He received 37 1/2 of a possible 50 votes. New Orleans QB Drew Brees finished a distant second with 7 1/2 votes. San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers had two votes while Brett Favre claimed one. Favre has won three MVP's in his career. All these guys are playing this weekend.

With a playoff bye in place, Peyton Manning didn't need to play too much as the Indianapolis Colts wrapped up the regular season in Buffalo. Here is the footage (with the famous Buffalo weather in play) on last weekend's "Thurman Thomas Show":
