Stanley Havili out for Rose Bowl

December 30, 2008

USC fullback Stanley Havili is out for the Rose Bowl. He was ruled academically ineligible.  This could have big implications for the offense as the #2 fullback is also out. Proving ground for a new face on the USC offense? SURE. But nerve inducing for all of us who have spent this season yelling YEAH STANLEY at the tv? You f*cking betcha!

Merry Christmas from Your Gridiron Goddess

December 24, 2008

Hey Football Fiends!

I’ve been without internet access for five days, so sorry for the silence.

I want to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah. Thanks for spending 2008 with me here at!

Weekend NFL Picks will go up on Christmas Eve. College Bowl Picks will go up at some point this week/weekend.

Also, want to direct those of you who enjoy my NFL Picks to an awesome site. Sports Intensity is a fantastic place to take a look at all the various betting sites and what the pluses and minuses to each one are. I’ll be posting a lengthier review of Sports Intensity in the coming days. It definitely has the Gridiron Goddess seal of approval.

Happy Holidays! I hope this week is merry and filled with family, friends, food, festivities and football for one and all!

Broken wordpress…

December 8, 2008

hey all!

No, you are not imagining things. There are many things missing from this site tonight. I am investigating with wordpress what the F is going on. I anticipate getting the sidebar and all links and such restored sometime on Tuesday.

Because it is entirely likely that me and my cold medicine and stuffy itchy sneezy head just did something stooopid.

Either way, I will fix it tomorrow.
