Hope you have your pernicious racial stereotypes at the ready for the Irish and the Mexicans. In a game in which Cincy’s starters will see limited to very limited action, we’ll need something to keep us amused other than the prospect of Mark Sanchez’s four turnovers blowing the Jets’ giftwrapped playoff berth. Especially because a Jets victory means these two teams play again next week, only with both teams actually having something to play for. And that’s where J.T. O’Sullivan comes in. The prolix descriptions of his exploits will make for boisterous raillery!

This is obviously our last live blog of the regular season (it being the last game and all) but, as we did last year, we will have you covered for the postseason. Probably not to the extent that we can do all the games through the first two rounds, but we’ll have most of them for you. More info on that to come.

But enough programming notes. It was a much more mixed final day for the objective fan than last year’s finale that saw Favre, the Cowboys and the Pats eliminated all on the same day. On one hand, the Steelers were denied the postseason berth they didn’t deserve. Zulu Cop Speed also eclipsed 2,000-yard mark. However, the Eagles bed shitting, while nicely upsetting Philly turds, lets Brett Favre off the hook for choking away a two seed. Too much gray area for my tastes.
