The Max Factor

Every time I post a picture or a new video of Maximus minimus, you can see his puppiness disappearing and his dogginess growing.  In the video, Max had been fetching for about 20 minutes, so I ran in to get a camera.  By the time I got out, all he wanted to do was chill out in the shade.  It was sunny and a little warm.  Maltese don’t look so cute and cuddly when they are muddy.

Here are a couple of pictures to show how much the little guy is growing.

Monday Armchair QB

This was a big week! The Miami Dolphins at this point last year were 0-13. With three games to play this year, the Dolphins are guaranteed not to finish with a losing record. The record stands at 8-5 and the Dolphins are in a 3 way tie for first place. Miami plays two surging teams in KC and San Fran, and finish against the Jets in what could very well be a defacto playoff game. Who’da thunk it?

The Hurricanes finished the season 4-4 in the conference and 7-5 overall. They have been extended a bid to play the Cal Bears in San Francisco in the Emerald Bowl.

The Orange Bowl game here in Miami to determine the national championship will host the SEC champion Florida Gators who defeated Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide of Alabama vs the Big 12 champion Sooners who set the NCAA record for points in a season scoring 5 straight games of at least 60 points. This will be a great matchup. I still can’t say which team I expect to win, but I will certainly enjoy watching.

In fantasy football, I am going to lose to Jesse’s Fuserheads for the second time, which will lock up his playoff spot despite not even adjusting his roster all year. Ritz is behind the 8 ball, however. If he loses, he will miss the playoffs since Bachrach has beaten the Dead Skins this week. Ritz has Carolina’s Steve Smith tonight while the Buzzards have Dunn and Tampa’s Defense. The matchup is very even with the Buzzards leading by 1 point going into the game.
