‘Tis the Season: What the Fox?! Falcons beat the 49ers?!

Why is my local Fox station not televising the Atlanta Falcons vs. San Francisco 49ers game? Hm? Hm? Hm? Qu’est-ce qui ce passe? Nandesuka?

Instead, my local Fox station has on the Green Bay Packers vs. the Kansas City Chiefs game. I don’t mind watching this game at all–I just really wanted to see if the Falcons’ week off improved their game even a modicum amount. I guess I’ll have to refresh the gamecenter page every couple of minutes to get the score. By the way, 49ers running back Maurice Hicks made a touchdown in the first quarter. Falcons haven’t scored yet as of 1:27 east coast time.

OOO!!! But a couple minutes later, the Falcons put seven points on the board, thanks to running back Warrick Dunn. I’ll update this post at half-time.

Edit: It’s half-time in the Falcons vs. 49ers game. Atlanta = 14. San Francisco = 7. Yes, indeed. Falcons fullback Ovie Mughelli made a TD in the second quarter. I’ll update again at the end of the game and write up a very short entry on the Green Bay vs. Kansas City game.

Edit Two: Holy Rusted Metal, Batman.  The Falcons won their second game this season!!  I continued to watch the Green Bay vs. Kansas City game and checked the Atlanta vs. San Francisco game every few minutes for the score.  The Falcons had the lead going into the third quarter, 14 to 7.  The 49ers would get six points from two field goals in the third quarter.  I was so nervous.  They got another field goal in the fourth quarter, but the Falcons got two field goals in the fourth quarter, giving them the win.  20 to 16.  I sure wish I could’ve watched this game.

But, watching the Packers vs. Chiefs game was pretty sweet too.*  Green Bay won the game and made history with the victory–it’s the first time Packers quarterback Brett Favre beat Kansas City, 33 to 22.  Get the game stats, summary, and play by play here.

*The uniformed players look like ketchup and mustard.

Here’s another one.
